Overview
The different editors of WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile allow you to align the elements via a snap-on grid.
The snap-on grid simplifies the positioning and the alignment of controls found in a window, in a page, in a report, in 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 holding down the Shift key while moving.
Similarly, when the grid is disabled, it can be temporarily enabled with 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.
