The Anchor property is used to manage the anchors of a control. You can:
  • Identify the anchors currently set on a control in a window or report.
  • Modify the characteristics of the anchors set on a control in a window.
Reminder: The anchors of a control define the control behavior (size and location) when the window (or report) is resized.
Several properties are used to define or find out the anchor rate of a control. These properties are as follows:
