12. Control templates
Previous pageTable of contentsNext page
WINDEV allows you to create control templates. A control template is a set of controls that can be reused in several windows.
The changes made in a control template are automatically applied to all windows using this template.
A control template is used to:
  • group a set of controls for a specific purpose.
  • make the controls independent of the window that is hosting them.
View of a control template.
The template is bordered by an orange line in the editor.
Template used in a window.
The elements belonging to the template are bordered
by a blue line and identified by a yellow square.

To create a window based on a control template, create a "Control template" control.
Remark: The programming associated with the template elements can be performed in the template directly.
The characteristics of the elements can be dissociated from the template. For example, dissociate the position of a control from the template to move the control elsewhere while keeping other changes (code, style, etc.). This is referred to as control inheritance. In this case, the elements are identified by a blue square.
