The property editor for each of the App Builder objects is unique, but there are a number of properties common to almost all of them.
- Object Type
Not a property. Object Type is an option menu for choosing the type of property editor to be displayed. Properties change depending on which object type is chosen.
Not a property. Objects lists the objects of the selected object type in the current project. The list displays the full, unique name for each object, which is comprised of the name of the module in which the object exists, two colons, and the Object Name.
- Object Name
Displays the default name or the name given by you to the object selected in the Objects list.
- Initial State, Visible
Specifies whether the selected object is visible when the application starts up; all objects except a custom dialog are visible by default.
- Initial State, Active
A check box for specifying whether the object selected is "active" when the application starts up. An inactive object is not functional: it is dimmed and no functions can be activated from the object.
- Color: Background
Specifies the background color of the selected object. You can either type in a known color name or choose Color Chooser from the menu and select a color from the palette displayed.
- Color: Foreground
Specifies the foreground color of the selected object. You can either type in a known color name or choose Color Chooser from the menu and select a color from the palette displayed.
