Stored procedures
From version 20, this feature is kept for backward compatibility. It is only available for pages created with a previous version and already having a positioning table..
Positioning the elements in a page is simplified by the use of a positioning table (HTML table). You can view the HTML table that will be generated and simplify it by aligning the different controls.
This positioning table is also very useful to create "page footers".
The positioning table is represented by dotted lines.
Printing in "Zoning" mode allows you to avoid using the positioning tables. For more details, see Printing in zoning mode.
How to?

Displaying or hiding the positioning table

When you are in the page editor, to display or hide the positioning table, you can:
  • go to the "Display" tab, "Editing help" group and check or uncheck "Positioning table".
  • press Ctrl + U.

Anchoring a control

The anchoring of controls is simplified by the generation in zoning mode. For more details, see Anchoring controls in a page.
By default, the real position of WEBDEV controls is specified in the positioning table.
For example:
To anchor a control (in most cases to the bottom or to the right), specify a percentage for the control coordinates in the positioning table. To do so, perform a right click on the coordinate and select "Sizable". You can now type the desired value (in percentage):


  • When the positioning table is displayed in the editor, to optimize the viewing of positioning table, the background color of cells as well as the images are no longer displayed.
  • Pressing Ctrl + I is used to see the expandable areas. The positioning table is not drawn and the images are displayed.
  • The positioning tables do not apply to the AJAX tables.
Minimum version required
