Creating a Shape control
Java

Creating a Shape control in the window editor

To create a Shape control in the window editor:
  1. On the "Creation" pane, in the "Other controls" group, click "Shape".
  2. Click at the desired location to create the control. The shape creation wizard starts. Choose the shape to create and its characteristics (line thickness, ...).
  3. Validate the shape creation.
To view the control characteristics, select "Description" in the popup menu of the control.
Remarks:
  • To directly create a specific shape, on the "Creation" pane, in the "Other controls" group, expand "Shape" and select the desired shape.
  • From version 12, the Arrow, Ellipse and Line shapes use the GDI+ framework: therefore, the "jagged" effects are reduced. If your window contains Shape controls that have been created with an earlier version, this new drawing mode is automatically applied.
  • Versions 21 and later
    In the window editor, you can set a background image for the Rectangle, Ellipse and Diamond shapes ("Background image" option in the "Details" tab of the control description window).
    New in version 21
    In the window editor, you can set a background image for the Rectangle, Ellipse and Diamond shapes ("Background image" option in the "Details" tab of the control description window).
