With the advent of being able to control window sizes and positions internally, it would be of use if the component had a trigger fired on manual resize. This would allow the positioning of fields, or secondary components appropriately.

Use Case

Window resized, a new trigger, or the async trigger, or a specific operation (like init and cleanup) is fired so that code may be placed in there.


It allows for intercomponent interaction where and \'slicker\' application behaviour.

One thought on “Trigger fired on window resize.”

  1. Please be advised that a trigger that fires when a form CONTAINER (TabEx or FormContainer widget) has been re-sized has been introduced in Uniface 9.6.03 (9.6.02 plus service pack MX02)

    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.

    In combination with two other enhancements that were made it is expected to solve many layout issues:

    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.

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