Copying the style of a control
Overview
Copying the style of a control consists in copying the characteristics of a control style into another control. Only the style of the control is copied (not its content).
This copy can be performed between:
  • Two controls of the same type.
  • Two controls of different types. In this case, only the style characteristics common to the two controls are copied.
The style copy can be performed between two controls belonging to the same window (to the same page or to the same report) or between two controls belonging to different windows (to different pages or to different reports).
