To open this dialog box, choose WindowProperties Window. It displays certain properties for the currently selected object. The displayed properties are different for different object types. If more than one object is currently selected, it displays only those property types they have in common (generally no more than their dimensions.) Figure 55 shows the Properties Window for a control frame, such as that automatically supplied by AppBuilder when you place an OCX object.
