Stored procedures
The AnchorRateRight property is used to:
  • Find out the anchor rate when a control moves on the horizontal axis
  • Modify the anchor rate when a control moves on the horizontal axis.
The anchor rate is used to define how the control is moved or resized in relation to the evolution of size of window (or report) to which it is anchored. The anchor rate corresponds to the percentage by which the control moves in relation to the window (or report). Therefore, if the anchor rate is set to 0, the control will not be resized. If it is set to 1000, the control will be resized normally.
The right anchor rate (AnchorRateRight property) is applied if the control is anchored to the right (anchorRight constant used with the Anchor property).
WEBDEV - Server code This property can only be used to find out the anchor rate of the report controls.
Example
// The List Box control will be resized by 50% relative to the window size
LIST_ListPersons.AnchorRateRight = 500
