Overview
The planes are used to group the window controls. A plane is a window "layer". Each window can include several planes.
The controls can be positioned on different planes. A single plane can be displayed at a time in the window editor and when running the program.
Each window control can:
  • belong to no plane: it will always be displayed, regardless of the current plane
  • belong to a plane. This control will be displayed when the corresponding plane is enabled (which means visible).
  • Versions 19 and later
    belong to several planes. This control will be displayed when one of the planes associated with the control is enabled (which means visible).
    New in version 19
    belong to several planes. This control will be displayed when one of the planes associated with the control is enabled (which means visible).
    belong to several planes. This control will be displayed when one of the planes associated with the control is enabled (which means visible).
Remarks:
  • The planes are also available in the reports. The planes in the reports are mainly used to replace the substitution blocks: all you have to do is position the controls on several planes and enable the requested plane during the print.

Assigning one or more controls to one or more planes
To assign one or more controls to one or more planes:
  1. Select the controls.
  2. Select:
    • "Associate with a plane" from the popup menu of selection.
    • "Associate with a plane" from the popup menu of control.
  3. In the window that is displayed, choose:
    • "No plane" if the control must be associated with no plane,
    • one of the available planes.
    • Versions 19 and later
      several planes (to do so, keep the Ctrl key down while selecting planes).
      New in version 19
      several planes (to do so, keep the Ctrl key down while selecting planes).
      several planes (to do so, keep the Ctrl key down while selecting planes).
Remarks:
  • The number of planes is unlimited. However, the window editor or the report editor may prevent you from selecting the planes greater than 98.
  • A control can also be assigned to a plane from the description window of control:
    • in the window editor: "Details" tab, "Plane" option.
    • Versions 19 and later
      in the report editor: "UI" tab, "Plane" option.
      New in version 19
      in the report editor: "UI" tab, "Plane" option.
      in the report editor: "UI" tab, "Plane" option.
  • When assigning a control to a plane, the control may not be displayed in the current window or report anymore: the current plane differs from the plane assigned to the control.
  • Versions 19 and later
    The assignments window lists the planes used then the blank planes. The buttons found at the bottom of this window simplify the move between the different types of planes.

Selecting the plane displayed in the editor
To display a specific plane in the editor, you can:
  • In the window editor: in the "Window" pane, in the "Associate" group, expand "Planes". In the window that is opened, all you have to do is choose the plane to display in the "Navigation" section.
  • Versions 19 and later
    In the report editor: on the "Modification" pane, in the "Planes" group, expand "Planes". In the window that is opened, all you have to do is choose the plane to display in the "Navigation" section.
    New in version 19
    In the report editor: on the "Modification" pane, in the "Planes" group, expand "Planes". In the window that is opened, all you have to do is choose the plane to display in the "Navigation" section.
    In the report editor: on the "Modification" pane, in the "Planes" group, expand "Planes". In the window that is opened, all you have to do is choose the plane to display in the "Navigation" section.
  • Press the PgDn and PgUp keys. These keys are used to display the different planes of current window or report.
  • Press Ctrl + PgDn and Ctrl + PgUp. These keys are used to display the different planes containing controls (non-empty planes) of current window or report.
  • Type the number of the plane to display in the status bar of window or report editor.
Changing plane by programming
The ..Plane property allows to:
  • find out and change the current plane in a window or report.
  • find out and change the plane associated with a control.

Changing plane in a window

Changing plane in a window can be performed at any time. A button is often used to change plane.
Example:
// Switch to plane 4 for adding orders
WIN_CRM..Plane = 4
The change of plane is immediate: only the controls associated with the plane are displayed.
Versions 23 and later
Remark: If the planes have been named in the window editor, the plane name can be used instead of the plane number.
New in version 23
Remark: If the planes have been named in the window editor, the plane name can be used instead of the plane number.
Remark: If the planes have been named in the window editor, the plane name can be used instead of the plane number.
Versions 19 and later

Changing plane in a report

The change of plane in a report must be done when printing the report. We recommend that you use ..Plane in one of the processes of report, blocks or controls.
// Opening process of the report
// Display the plane 2
MyReport..Plane = 2
The change of plane is immediate: only the controls associated with the plane are printed.
Remark: Replacing the substitution blocks by planes:
Until version 18, the substitution blocks were used to replace a block by another one during the print. However, to avoid the print problems, it was recommend to create substitution blocks with the same height as the block to replace.
From version 19, the planes can easily replace a substitution block. To do so, you must:
  • in the editor: position the controls of the substitution block in the requested block and assign them to a plane.
  • by programming: replace the call to iSubstBlock by a call to ..Plane in order to display the requested plane.
