Common Desktop Environment: Application Builder User's Guide

To Create a Child Pane

  1. Drop a text pane, draw area pane, or term pane on a control pane in the interface.

    A message dialog box will be displayed, asking if you want to create the dropped pane as a child of the control pane or as a layered pane.

    Click Cancel if you do not want to create a child pane or a layered pane.

  2. Click Child.

    The pane will be instantiated at the drop location, just as if it were a control object. The pane will be a sibling of the control objects on the control pane. You will be able to select the pane and move it around on the control pane just like any other control object.
