Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Use this control in Forms Designer to add a calendar to a form. To place a calendar on a form, click Calendar and then click the form.
Note The calendar widget is displayed well only in the web client. When you view the form from the Windows client, this widget is displayed as a blank area.
Specify a unique identifier for the object on the screen. (Optional)
This name is used by external applications, such as RAD, to dynamically change the properties of the object.
Specify the object’s horizontal position based on the left edge of the object.
Specify the object’s vertical position based on the top edge of the object.
Specify the width of the object in alignment grid units.
Specify the height of the object in alignment grid units.
Select this option to make the object visible on the form. Clear the check box to hide the object from view on the form.
Example: Select this option.
Specify an expression to override the Visible property when that expression evaluates to true.
Specify the database field or variable to associate with this control. The primary use for this property is to set the focus on the graph.
Specify the tab sort order for this field. By default, the TAB key navigates the focus on a form from top to bottom and left to right. Objects that have a non-zero Tab Stop are visited first, in ascending order. For a button, file, radio button, or check box, you will almost always use the default of 0.
Specify a component description for use with accessibility software. (Optional)
Note This function is only supported by the web client. If no description is present, the web client defaults to looking for a nearby label to use for the name of the component. For buttons, check boxes, or radio buttons, the web client will use the component’s text. Accessibility software can query the web client to get this information. The client uses that information to present data to the user in a variety of ways. For example, speech simulation software will say the name and the type of component when the component gets focus, based on the settings in the Accessible Name and Accessible Description fields.
