Height in a report

  • The height of a non-breakable block cannot exceed the available page height (excluding the page header and the page footer).
  • The height of a page footer cannot be modified. However, the height of a page header can be modified through programming.
  • A control must be entirely contained in the block to which it belongs.
WINDEVWEBDEV - Server codeJavaUser code (UMC)PHPAjax

Row height

The height of each row in a Table, List Box or ListView control can be defined through programming. For browsing List Box and Table controls, this height is kept for the visible section on the screen only
Example: Defines the height of row 3 in "LIST_List1" to 200.
LIST_List1[3]..Height = 200
Remark: For a column in a Table control, the Height property gets the visible height of the column. This property is available in read-only mode.

Initial height (control and window)

The initial height (described in the editor) is returned by the InitialHeight property.
In most cases, the height of an object depends on MaxHeight and MinHeight. However, this constraint no longer applies when the height is changed through programming (with the Height property or the WinSize function).
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser code

Height of controls in a form

In server code, the returned and modifiable height corresponds to the total height of the control (height of the caption plus height of the input area if the caption and the input area are one above each other).
In browser code, the returned and modifiable height corresponds to the height of the input area.
