Characteristics of Word Processing control
The "General" tab in the description window of the Word Processing control proposes the following options:
  • Initial document: Used to indicate the initial document displayed in the Word Processing control.
  • With ribbon: Indicates whether the ribbon must be displayed or not. If the ribbon must be displayed, you can specify the ribbon used via "Ribbon source IW".
    If the option "Ribbon source IW" corresponds to:
    • "None": the ribbon proposed by default will be used.
    • "Preset window": the ribbon proposed by default can be customized.
      Simply select the window predefined by Default in the "FI source" area of the ribbon. In this case, the "IW_WinDevAAF_WPBar" window is automatically included in your project. This internal window (available in English and French) can be modified according to your needs. This window contains the code required to manage the Word Processing control. It is recommended to check for UI errors and make sure the window works properly after any change is made.
    • Internal window of project: Allows you to use an internal window to propose a specific ribbon.
      Any internal window of your project can be used to create this bar.
    You also have the ability to apply the project skin-template.
