Viewing a window in 3 dimensions
Overview
Your window is displaying controls that overlap?
You want to find out the z-order position of your controls: which controls are displayed in the foreground?
The two-dimensional display soon becomes inadequate for this type of operation.
WINDEV gives a spatial view of a window by allowing you to view the window in three dimensions. The z-order position of the different window controls appears immediately. A control selected in this display mode remains selected when the mode goes back to two dimensions.
You have the ability to choose the best view angle via the mouse and via the keyboard keys.
Caution: a specific configuration is required to use this feature.
