..XInitial is used to:
  • Find out the X coordinate:
    • of a control (position on X axis) when opening the window or the page.
    • of a window (position on X axis) when opening the window.
  • Modify the X coordinate of a control anchored "to right" (position on X axis) when opening the window.
  • Find out the X coordinate of a control in relation to its block (position in millimeters on X axis) when opening the report.
Remark: The X coordinate of a control or window corresponds to the X coordinate specified in the "UI" tab, in their description window.
This X coordinate defines the control or window position when opening the window, page or report.

Syntax

Finding out the X coordinate of a control or window Hide the details

<Result> = <Element used>..XInitial
<Result>: Integer
  • X coordinate of specified element:
    • If the control belongs to a window: this X coordinate is expressed in pixels. When the window is opened, 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, when opening the report, to the horizontal position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of block.
    • If the control belongs to a page: this X coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds, when opening the report, to:
      • WEBDEV - Server code the horizontal position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of the page. If the control belongs to a container control (HTML cell, looper, ...), the X coordinate is given in relation to this container control.
      • WEBDEV - Browser codePHP the horizontal position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of the page.
  • WINDEVAndroidiPhone/iPadUniversal Windows 10 AppWindows Mobile X coordinate of window (in pixels) when it is opened. Horizontal position of top left corner of window in relation to the top left corner of the screen.
<Element used>: Control name or window name
Name of element (control or window) to use.
For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
<Tab name>.<Control name>

Modifying the X coordinate of a control anchored "to right" Hide the details

<Control used>..XInitial = <New X coordinate>
<Control used>: Control name
Name of control to use. ..XInitial has no effect if the control is not anchored "to right".
For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
<Tab name>.<Control name>
<New X coordinate>: Integer
New X coordinate of specified control (in pixels). 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).

Position of Tab control

..XInitial is used to find out and modify the horizontal position (in pixels) of the Tab control, relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
Important: If the coordinates of a tab anchored "to right" are modified by ..XInitial, all controls positioned on the tab will also be moved.
WINDEVWindows MobileJavaUser code (UMC)

Position of control in a Tab control

  • If a control is associated with a Tab control, its coordinates are not relative to the Tab control but to the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
  • If a control is positioned on a Tab control without being associated with it, the coordinates of this control are relative to the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
