Remarks
WINDEVReports and QueriesUser code (UMC)

Animating a group of controls

If <Control Name> corresponds to a group of controls, the animation is played in the rectangle defined by the most top left control and by the most top right control.
The controls that do not belong to the group of controls but found in this area will also be animated.

Special cases

  • ControlVisible has no effect if the control or the group of controls are visible.
  • ..Visible can also be used to make the controls visible. This property cannot be used to play an animation during this operation. In Windows Mobile and in Linux, ..Visible and ControlVisible are equivalent.
