Overview
The different editors of WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile give you the ability to align the elements via a snap-on grid.
The snap-on grid simplifies the positioning and the alignment of the controls found in a window, in a page, in a report, in the graphic presentation of the project, in the queries, in the UML , ...
The size of the grid is expressed in pixels (or in centimeters in the report editor).
When the grid is enabled, it can be temporarily disabled by keeping the [SHIFT] key down during the moves.
Similarly, when the grid is disabled, it can be temporarily enabled via the [SHIFT] key.
Recommended options for the grid:
  • Invisible grid.
  • Grid enabled.
  • Vertical spacing of the grid: 12 pixels.
  • Horizontal spacing of the grid: 12 pixels.
If the spacing of the grid is set to 1, the grid will not be visible.
