\"It would be very useful to be able to attach a \"\"Line Frame\"\" to the window border. This would mean that if the form was resized, or maximised, the line frame would stretch to the new size of the form. It would also be useful to be able to made it non 3D, so that it just appeared as a simple linw.\"

Use Case

\"There could be properties against the \"\"Line Frame\"\" widget which would allow you to attach it to the window borders. There wouls also be a checkbox to identify whether it should be 3D or not.\"


Medium. It would save having to use split bars to perform the same function. Split bars take up quite a lot of space, and also mean you cannot change the position of widgets at runtime

One thought on “Line Frame: Attach to border and 3D properties”

  1. The “importance”section mentions splitbars taking up a lot of space.
    Please be advised that the need for using split bars has been greatly reduced inĀ Uniface 9.6.03 (9.6.02 plus service pack MX02)

    The Attach to Window Border (ATTACH) widget property has been significantly enhanced.

    New values enable you to choose whether to re-size attached widgets, or maintain the same size and simply move the widget with the border or split bar.

    A new extended trigger is available on the Form Container and Tabex widgets.

    The Resized trigger allows you to control the response of the widget when the widget is re-sized.

    For example, you could display a different component when the size is larger or smaller than a specified size.

    The Radio Group widget now also supports the Attach and AttachMargin properties.
