Within a Screen type you can have multiple Screen components. Here is also a possibility to set Screen component properties.

I'd like to know:

  • Which properties are available?
  • What values can they have and what will be the effect of each value?
  • If there is a possibility to define our own screen component properties?

Hi Roy, 

To answer all your questions:

  • Which properties are available?

Every component has its own Properties. All available properties are listed on the right of the Design tab of the Screen type:

  • What values can they have and what will be the effect of each value?

In the same screen all available entries are given. One addition is for the Universal GUI. Since the 2021.1.13 release, the developer can enter 'HIDE_TOOLBAR’ with value Yes/No. This will hide the toolbar with Refresh, add and such in the screen type.

The effect will be based on the property and its value. Like Show tab header is False, then no Tab header will be shown for the Tab. Try out the different values to see what happens. We currently don’t have a complete list of all properties and values and how it reacts to all different values.

  • If there is a possibility to define our own screen component properties?

It is not (easily) possible to create your own screen component properties as it has to be supported by the GUI. Custom screens could be created but that requires additional C# coding and expanding the GUI. This does require maintenance as every new GUI release, it might cause the own created code to not function properly.
