EDT_CustomerName.Width = EDT_CustomerName.Width + 15
// Is equivalent to: EDT_CustomerName.Width += 15
// Modify the width of two controls
EDT_CustomerLastName.Width += 100 // Adds 100 pixels
EDT_CustomerFirstName.Width += 10 // Adds 10 pixels

Width of a window: Specific features

  • WINDEV The width of a window takes into account the shadow effect defined in the Windows theme.
  • iPhone/iPad The width of a window can be different depending on the events in which the Property Width is used.. This is because the window is resized by the system between the reporting and initialisation events, resulting in a potential difference in value of:
    • in the "Global Declarations" event, the window is not yet Visible and therefore has not received its size according to the aircraft. The property returns the initial width (edit width) of the window.
    • in the "Initialization" event, the window is Visible on the screen and the anchors, size modifications are applied. Therefore, the window width can be different.
    • The actual width of a window is therefore only known in the "Initialization" event of the window..

Initial width (control and window)

The initial width (defined in the editor) is returned by InitialWidth.
In most cases, the width of an element depends on MaxWidth and MinWidth. Nevertheless, this constraint disappears when the width is modified by programming (using the Property Width or the WinSize function).
WINDEVReports and QueriesAndroidiPhone/iPadWindows MobileJavaUser code (UMC)

Column width

When the width of a column is modified in a Table control, if the specified width is less than the minimum width, the latter must be modified (MinWidth) in order to apply the modification.
Horizontal Table control: The Property Width changes the height of the row. Height is used to find out the width of the entire table. This property is available in read-only mode.
WEBDEV - Server codeWEBDEV - Browser code

Width of controls in a form

In server code, the returned and modifiable width corresponds to the total height of the control (width of caption plus width of input area).
In browser code, the returned and modifiable width corresponds to the width of the input area.
