    Default Will A5 V5 offer...

    I've been playing with object properties through XBasic. I know that when creating a form with the form editor, for example, I can set the size and position of objects on the form. I haven't yet found a way to access that information through object properties in XBasic. Have I missed something that's in V4? If not, will this stuff be accessable in V5? Please?

    Don't know what you've tried, but let me suggest:

    In design mode, right click on an object and select Actions.

    From the menu at top, select Code / Convert to Xbasic.

    Now, open up the Xbasic explorer if it's not already there, and drill down through Objects / Windows and then you'll see the name of your form there.

    Click again on the form name, and objects on the forms will be available. Click on an object name and it's Methods and Properties are available.

    Takes longer to describe than to do this.

    Hope this helps.

    - Steve

    Thank you. I'd been there, but hadn't looked thoroughly enough.
