Creating a "Drawer" control in a window

To create a "Drawer" control in a window:
  1. On the "Creation" pane, in the "Containers" group, expand "Tab and associated" and select "Drawer control".
  2. Click at the desired location to create the control. The control appears in the editor.
    The created Drawer control automatically contains a control: this control is the button used to "Expand/Collapse" the Drawer control. This control contains the necessary WLanguage code. You have the ability to customize this control by associating it with a specific image.
  3. Drop on the Drawer control the different controls that must appear/disappear when it is used.
To view the control characteristics, select "Description" in the popup menu of the control.
Characteristics of a Drawer control

Drawer control found in a window

  • When the Drawer control is in edit in the window editor, it can be handled like when it is in execution. The popup menu of the control allows you to expand/collapse it upon request ("Collapse/Expand the Drawer control" option).
  • In the description of the Drawer control, the "General" tab is used to specify:
    • Whether an animation must be performed when handling a Drawer control.
    • Whether the window size must be adapted when using the control. Indeed, when the Drawer control is expanded, the controls found below the Drawer control are automatically moved to the bottom. This option is used to automatically enlarge the window to the bottom in order to see the controls found below the Drawer control.
Programming a Drawer control

Expanding/Collapsing a Drawer control

Drawer Control not working properly
Make sure the drawer control is wider than the contents you are moving below the drawer control.
