The XInitial property is used to:
  • Get the X-coordinate:
    • of a control (position on the X-axis) when opening the window or the page.
    • of a window (position on X-axis) when opening the window.
  • Change the X-coordinate of a control anchored "to the right" (position on the X-axis) when opening the window.
  • Get the X-coordinate of a control in relation to its block (position in millimeters on the X-axis) when opening the report.
Remark: The X-coordinate of a control or window corresponds to the X-coordinate specified in the "UI" tab, in their description window.
This X-coordinate defines the control or window position when opening the window, page or report.
Example
// Moves the control 10 millimeters to the right
STC_Title.X = STC_Title.X + 10
// Restores the initial position
STC_Title.X = STC_Title.XInitial
Syntax

Getting the X-coordinate of a control or window Hide the details

<Result> = <Element used>.XInitial
<Result>: Integer
  • X-coordinate of specified element:
    • If the control belongs to a window: this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels. When the window is opened, it corresponds to the horizontal 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).
    • If the control belongs to a report: this X-coordinate is expressed in millimeters. It corresponds, when opening the report, to the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the block.
    • If the control belongs to a page: this X-coordinate is expressed in pixels. It corresponds, when opening the report, to:
      • WEBDEV - Server code the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page. If the control belongs to a container control (HTML cell, looper, etc.), the X-coordinate is given in relation to this container control.
      • WEBDEV - Browser codePHP the horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the control in relation to the upper-left corner of the page.
  • WINDEVUniversal Windows 10 AppAndroidiPhone/iPadIOS Widget X-coordinate of window (in pixels) when it is opened. Horizontal position of the upper-left corner of the window in relation to the upper-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>

Changing the X-coordinate of a control anchored "to the right" Hide the details

<Control used>.XInitial = <New X-coordinate>
<Control used>: Control name
Name of the control to be used. If the control is not anchored to the right, the XInitial property has no effect.
For a control associated with a tab, use the following notation:
<Tab name>.<Control name>
<New X-coordinate>: Integer
New X-coordinate of the specified control (in pixels). Horizontal 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).

Position of a Tab control

The XInitial property is used to get and change the horizontal position (in pixels) of the Tab control, relative to the upper-left corner of the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
Important: If the coordinates of a tab anchored to the right are changed with the XInitial property, all the controls positioned on the tab will also be moved.
WINDEVJavaUser code (UMC)

Position of a control in a Tab control

  • If a control is associated with a Tab control, its coordinates are not relative to the Tab control but to the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
  • If a control is positioned on a Tab control without being associated with it, the coordinates of this control are relative to the window's client area (i.e. the window without title bar, menu bar or borders).
