Introducing the Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge Visual Designer : Concepts : UI controls : Control properties
Control properties
Each UI object has a number of properties that define its appearance and behavior. The Visual Designer lets you set these properties in several ways:
*Size and position can be set by clicking and dragging objects on the Design Canvas.
*Menus provide commands for setting alignment, spacing, front-to-back order, and tab order.
*The Properties view lets you edit all available properties of selected objects.
The set of available properties depends on the control. Many controls have built-in wizards or other design aids tailored to the characteristics of that specific control.
