How to Insert Controls

To insert controls:

1. Use the Windows Designer catalog to open the appropriate window/dialog.
2. Select the object into which you want to insert a control.


Make sure that the parent object (usually an Info Window, Dialog Box or Column Box object) has a horizontal or a vertical orientation. If the parent object has an XY orientation, you cannot predict the location of the control you are adding. In the case of a horizontal or vertical orientation, the added control will be the last object (i.e. it will have the highest Position number).

3. Open the Control tab page of the Windows Designer catalog, and then drag and drop the desired control onto the design view.


From the menu bar, choose Insert and the corresponding option.

4. Repeat the previous step for each of the controls that you want to insert.
