Overview
A group of controls is a set of controls grouped together in order for their characteristics (their visible status for example) to be modified (or checked) in a single operation by programming. A menu option can also be associated with a group of controls.
In the window editor, page editor or report editor, all the controls of all the groups are displayed: therefore, some controls may be overlaid.
The same control can be associated with several groups.
Example: To make several controls invisible, all you have to do is make the group invisible. In a health-care form for example, some controls may relate to men while others may relate to women. Grouping the related controls together allows you to make them visible or invisible according to the gender of the user.
Note: For the MDI windows, a MDI window can be associated with a group. See Managing the menu options in the MDI windows for more details.
