..MinWidth is used to find out and modify the minimum width of a control or window.
The minimum width of controls and windows is set to 0 by default. However, some controls cannot be resized below the size of their border.
Reminder: The minimum width of a control or window is used during the following operations:
  • Window resized by the user.
  • Management of anchors.
  • Window resized by programming (..Width or WinSize).

Syntax

Finding out the minimum width of an element Hide the details

<Current minimum width> = <Element used>..MinWidth
<Current minimum width>: Integer
Minimum width of the specified element (including the border) expressed in pixels.
<Element used>: Window name or control name
Name of the element (window or control) used.

Modifying the minimum width of an element Hide the details

<Element used>..MinWidth = <New minimum width>
<Element used>: Window name or control name
Name of the element (window or control) used.
<New minimum width>: Integer
New minimum width of the element (including the border) expressed in pixels.
Remarks

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. However, this constraint disappears when the width is modified by programming (..Width or WinSize).

Width of a column in a Table control

When the width of a column is modified in a Table control (..Width), if the specified width is less than the minimum width, the latter must be modified (..MinWidth) in order to apply the modification.
