..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.
Note: The X coordinate of a control or window corresponds to the X coordinate of "Details" tab in the description window of control or 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 name>..XInitial
<Result>: Integer
  • X coordinate of specified element:
    • If the control belongs to a window: this X coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds, when opening the window, to the horizontal position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of client area of window (which means the window without title bar, menu bar and border).
    • 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:
    • WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 App 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 name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
    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 name>..XInitial = <New X coordinate>
    <Control name>: Character string (with or without quotes)
    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 top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of window client area (which means the window without title bar, menu bar and border).

    Position of Tab control

    ..XInitial is used to find out and modify the horizontal position (in pixels) of Tab control in relation to the top left corner of client area of window (which means the window without title bar, menu bar and border).
    Important: If the coordinates of a tab anchored "to right" are modified by ..XInitial, all controls positioned on the tab will also be moved.
    WINDEVJavaUser code (UMC)

    Position of control in a tab

    • If a control is associated with a tab, the coordinates of this control are not specified in relation to the tab but in relation to the client area of window (which means the window without title bar, menu bar and border).
    • If a control is positioned on a tab without being associated with this tab, the coordinates of this control are specified in relation to the client area of window (which means the window without title bar, menu bar and border).
