As you may notice, I will periodically share a Uniface tip with you. Some big, some small. Some obvious, others hopefully a surprise. But usually somewhere in between. Although sometimes you can be fooled by it. When you think something is obvious and then it turns out to be different.
I recently surprised a very experienced Uniface professional with this tip. Which I thought everyone would know by now.
On a FORM component you define widgets and these widgets often have a label. That label is associated with the widget it belongs to. They have the same name. So far, nothing new.
A quick way to get that done:
- Draw the widget or field. Give it a name.
- Select the label template, but start drawing it on the GFP from the widget. So as if you were dragging the label out of the widget.
- Uniface will associate label and widget to each other.
Not Rocket science perhaps, but you never know. ?
