Stored procedures
..Width is used to find out and modify the width:
  • of a control or block in a report.
  • of a control (found in a window), window, column found in a table or column found in a list box (including listview).
  • of a control (found in a page), column found in a table or column found in a list box. The control can be overlayable or not.
This property also allows you to find out the width of a table cell. To modify its width, modify the width of the corresponding column.
Remarks:
  • In a report, the border of the control or block is included in its width. ..WidthInPixel is used to find out the width of a report control in pixels.
  • The width of a control is defined in the editor in the control description.
Example
// Increases the width of "EDT_CustomerName"
EDT_CustomerName..Width = EDT_CustomerName..Width + 15
// Is equivalent to: EDT_CustomerName..Width += 15
// Modify the width of two controls
EDT_CustomerLastName..Width += 100 // Adds 100 pixels
EDT_CustomerFirstName..Width += 10 // Adds 10 pixels
