Setting properties

When you select a control object, the properties view displays the type of control you have selected and the properties that apply to that object. Some properties are common to all control or layout objects, while others are object specific. The Forms Designer online Help contains a description of each control and its corresponding properties.

You can use the dynamic view dependencies feature to conditionally display some controls or conditionally change how some controls appear on a form.

Properties for a design object can be divided into the following categories:

  • Common properties
  • Font properties
  • Box properties
  • Object specific properties
