Remarks

Visible or invisible control/block

In a report, the only possible state for a control or a block is visible or invisible. To set the visibility of a control, it is recommended to use the Visible property. This property optimizes the management of control visibility.

State of a group of controls

  • Finding out the state of a group of controls: the state corresponds to the state of the first control in the group.
  • Modifying the state of a group of controls: all the controls of the group are modified and correspond to the new state.
WEBDEV - Server codePHPAjax

State of a column in a Table control

If the State property is applied to a column, the state of the entire column is changed (and not only the state of a cell).
Caution: the State property only restricts the state of the column defined in the description window. For example, if the column is read-only, no column cell can become editable.

Limitations

WEBDEV - Server code The State property has no effect on reports.
WEBDEV - Browser code The State property has no effect on the following elements:
  • Table,
  • TreeView Table,
  • Looper
  • Linear Looper
  • Table column.
Minimum version required
