The Y property is used to:
  • Find out the Y-coordinate of a control or window (position on Y-axis).
  • Modify the Y-coordinate of a control or window (position on Y-axis).
This property can be used on the controls found in a window, in a page or in a report, and on the windows.
Versions 21 and later
Universal Windows 10 App This property is now available in Universal Windows 10 App mode.
New in version 21

Example
// Find out the Y-coordinate of "IMG_Image"
ResYCoordinate = IMG_Image.Y
Syntax

Finding out the Y-coordinate of a control or window Hide the details

<Result> = <Element used>.Y
<Result>: Integer
  • Y-coordinate of specified control:
    • in a window, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels. This Y-coordinate corresponds the vertical 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).
    • in a report, this Y-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. This Y-coordinate corresponds to the vertical position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of the block to which the control belongs.
    • in a page, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels.
    • Y-coordinate of the specified window (in pixels). Vertical position of the upper-left corner of the window, relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.
      Linux The Y-coordinate of window is not available.
    <Element used>: Control name or window name
    Name of element (control or window) to use.
    For a control associated with a Tab control, use the following notation:
    <Tab name>.<Control name>

    Modifying the Y-coordinate of a control or window Hide the details

    <Element used>.Y = <New Y-coordinate>
    <Element used>: Control name or window name
    Name of element whose Y-coordinate will be modified.
    For a control associated with a Tab control, use the following notation:
    <Tab name>.<Control name>
    <New Y-coordinate>: Integer
    • New Y-coordinate for the specified control:
      • in a window, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels. This Y-coordinate corresponds the vertical 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).
      • in a report, this Y-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. This Y-coordinate corresponds to the vertical position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of the block to which the control belongs.
      • in a page, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels.
          Remark: The control must be overlayable, otherwise the change of the Y-coordinate will be ignored.
      • New Y-coordinate for the specified window (in pixels). Vertical position of the upper-left corner of the window, relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.
        Linux The Y-coordinate of window cannot be modified.

      Initial position (control and window)

      The initial position (defined in the "Details" tab of the object description in the window editor) is returned by this XInitial and YInitial properties. It corresponds to position of the object when the window is opened, and can be modified through programming with the X and Y properties.
      WINDEVJava

      Position of a Tab control

      The Y property is used to get and change the vertical position (in pixels) of the Tab control in relation to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. window without borders, title and menu bars).
      Important: If the tab coordinates are modified by the Y property, all controls positioned on the tab are moved accordingly.
      WINDEVJava

      Position of a control in a Tab control

      If a control is associated with a tab, its coordinates are not relative to the tab but to the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
      If, after a modification, the coordinates of a control positioned on a tab no longer belong to the coordinates of this tab, the control is not displayed anymore.
      WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppJava

      Hidden button

      You can use a "hidden" Button control by specifying negative coordinates (with the Y and X properties). These negative coordinates can be used to define specific shortcuts for example. A specific process can be called from a Button control with negative coordinates so that it does not appear in the window.
      WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppJava

      Position of an anchored control

      The Y property can be used to temporarily modify the Y-coordinate of an anchored control (until the window is resized).
      To permanently change the position of an anchored control, use the XInitial and YInitial properties.
      WINDEV

      Toolbar

      The Y property can be used on a floating toolbar.

      Elements of a Looper control

      The Y property can be used on the elements of a Looper control. In this case, the Y property is used to get the coordinates of the row inside the visible area of the Looper control.
      If the element is not displayed in the visible part of the Looper control, the Y property will return -4000.
      Example:
      LooperDisplay(LOOP_NoName1, 10)
      ThreadPause(200)
      Info(".Y of element 10: " + LOOP_NoName1[10].Y)
