Common Desktop Environment: Application Builder User's Guide

Control Pane


A control pane is the drop site for App Builder controls. It is created by dropping a control pane icon on a main window, a custom dialog, or another pane. In the figure above, a control pane has been dropped on the top-left corner of a main window, in anticipation of resizing it to fill the entire canvas.

Examples of control panes used in building App Builder include the pane on which the three panes palettes reside on the App Builder primary window and the pane beneath the controls on each of the property editors.
