The YInitial property is used to:
  • Find out the Y-coordinate:
    • of a control (position on Y axis) when opening the window or the page.
    • of a window (position on Y axis) when opening the window.
  • Modify the Y-coordinate of a control anchored "to the bottom" (position on the vertical axis) when opening the window.
  • Find out the Y-coordinate of a control in relation to its block (position in millimeters on the vertical axis) when opening the report.
Remark: The origin of a control or window corresponds to the Y-coordinate specified in the "UI" tab, in their description window.
This Y-coordinate defines the control or window position when opening the window, page or report.

Syntax

Finding out the Y-coordinate of a control or window Hide the details

<Result> = <Element used>.YInitial
<Result>: Integer
  • Y-coordinate of specified control
    • in a window, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels. When the window is opened, this coordinate corresponds to the vertical position of the upper-left corner of the control, relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
    • in a report, this Y-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. This Y-coordinate corresponds, when opening the report, to the vertical position of top left corner of control in relation to the top left corner of the block to which the control belongs.
    • in a page, this Y-coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds, when opening the page, to:
    • Y-coordinate of specified window (in pixels) when it is opened. Vertical position of top left corner of window in relation to the top left corner of the screen.
    <Element used>: Control name or window name
    Name of element (control or window) to use.
    For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
    <Tab name>.<Control name>

    Modifying the Y-coordinate of a control anchored "to bottom" Hide the details

    <Control used>.YInitial = <New Y-coordinate>
    <Control used>: Control name
    Name of the control to be used. If the control is not anchored to the bottom, the YInitial property has no effect.
    For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
    <Tab name>.<Control name>
    <New Y-coordinate>: Integer
    New Y-coordinate of specified control (in pixels).
    Vertical position of the upper-left corner of the control, relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
