Border (Type of variable)
In french: Cadre
The Border type is used to handle a border through programming. The characteristics of this border can be modified by several WLangage properties.
A Border type can be used:
  • in the controls of a report (Border property).
  • in the drawing functions (dBorder).
Remark: For more details on the declaration of this type of variable and the use of WLanguage properties, see Declaring a variable.
Example
// Define the characteristics of the borders for report controls
MyBorder is Border
MyBorder.Color = LightRed
MyBorder.Thickness = 5
 
// Borders for the NumNbPage control in the report
NumNbPage.Border = MyBorder
// Modify the characteristics of the borders for the NumNbPage control
NumNbPage.Border.Thickness = 1
 
// Get the characteristics of the borders for the NumNbPage control
MyBorder2 is Border = NumNbPage.Border
Versions 21 and later
// Define the border characteristics
MyBorder is Border
MyBorder.Color = LightRed
MyBorder.Thickness = 5
 
// Borders for the NumNbPage control in the report
NumNbPage.Border = MyBorder
// Modify the characteristics of the borders for the NumNbPage control
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Width = 2
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Height = 3
New in version 21
// Define the border characteristics
MyBorder is Border
MyBorder.Color = LightRed
MyBorder.Thickness = 5
 
// Borders for the NumNbPage control in the report
NumNbPage.Border = MyBorder
// Modify the characteristics of the borders for the NumNbPage control
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Width = 2
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Height = 3
// Define the border characteristics
MyBorder is Border
MyBorder.Color = LightRed
MyBorder.Thickness = 5
 
// Borders for the NumNbPage control in the report
NumNbPage.Border = MyBorder
// Modify the characteristics of the borders for the NumNbPage control
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Width = 2
NumNbPage.Border.TopLeftCorner.Height = 3
Remarks

Default characteristics of border

By default, a border found in a report has the following characteristics:
  • thickness set to 0. The border is visible if the thickness is greater than 0. The border is invisible if the thickness is set to 0.
  • black.
  • solid line.
  • no rounded corners.
  • all the border edges are displayed.
To define the characteristics of a border through programming, use the border properties.

These properties can be used:

    // Modify a characteristic of the border for the NumNbPage element
    NumNbPage.Border.Thickness = 1
Remark: The characteristics of a border defined through programming can also be directly assigned to an element:
// Define the border characteristics
MyBorder is Border
MyBorder.Color = LightRed
MyBorder.Thickness = 5
 
// Borders for the NumNbPage control in the report
NumNbPage.Border = MyBorder

Type of line for the border

The Type property is used to define and get the type of line of the border. The available constants are as follows (caution: the effect of these constants will differ when the border is used in a report or when it is used for a cell in an Excel document).
