The X property is used to:
  • Get the X-coordinate of a control, Table control column or window (position on the X-axis).
    WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser codePHP This property is used to get the X-coordinate of a control in a page.
  • Change the X-coordinate of a control or window (position on the X-axis).
    WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser codePHP This property is used to change the X-coordinate of an overlayable control in a page.
This property can be used on a window or on controls in a window, page or report.
Example
// Find out the X-coordinate of "IMG_Image" control
ResX = IMG_Image.X
Syntax

Finding out the X-coordinate of an element Hide the details

<Result> = <Element used>.X
<Result>: Integer
  • X-coordinate of specified element:
    • If the control belongs to a window, this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds to the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
    • If the control belongs to a report, this X-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. It corresponds to the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the element in relation to the upper-left corner of te block to which the control belongs.
    • If the control belongs to a page, this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds to:
      • WEBDEV - Server code the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page. If the control belongs to a container control (HTML cell, looper, etc.), the X-coordinate is given in relation to this container control.
      • WEBDEV - Browser codePHP the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page.
  • X-coordinate of specified column in a Table control (in pixels). Horizontal position of the upper-left corner of column in relation to the upper-left corner of Table control.
<Element used>: Character string
Name of element whose X-coordinate is requested.
For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
<Tab name>.<Control name>

Modifying the X-coordinate of an element Hide the details

<Element used>.X = <New X-coordinate>
<Element used>: Character string
Name of element whose X-coordinate will be modified.
For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
<Tab name>.<Control name>
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser code To modify the X-coordinate of a page control, this control must be a stackable control.
<New X-coordinate>: Integer
  • New X-coordinate of the specified control:
    • If the control belongs to a window, this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds to the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
    • If the control belongs to a report, this X-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. It corresponds to the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the element in relation to the upper-left corner of te block to which the control belongs.
    • If the control belongs to a page, this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels.
      • WEBDEV - Server code the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page. If the control belongs to a container control (HTML cell, looper, etc.), the X-coordinate is given in relation to this container control.
      • WEBDEV - Browser codePHP the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page.
      Remark: The control must be a stackable control otherwise the modification of the X-coordinate will be ignored.
  • New Xcoordinate of specified column in a Table control (in pixels). Horizontal position of the upper-left corner of column in relation to the upper-left corner of Table control.
Remarks
WEBDEV - Server code

Limits in the reports

The X property cannot be used on:
  • a report,
  • a report block.
Remark:
  • A control cannot be displayed outside the block to which it belongs.
  • The Height and Width properties are used to get the height and width of a report control or report block.
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser codePHP
