Remarks:Top

This object contains the most important information on a defined dynamic element, e.g. type, position, colour, ...

Dynamic elements are created in the Editor of the contol system. With a DynPicture you get the list of the defined elements. In the project the central list of the defined pictures is available.
Most of the dynamic elements can be linked to variables or functions. Additionally these elements can be linked to different VBA macros. The VBA macros are managed in the Macro Browser of the Editor and liked to the properties of the elements.

Hint:
The VBA macros are only available within the control system. External applications have no access to the defined macros.

The following VBA macros are available:

VBA macro Meaning
Init Executed on creating the element
LeftClickUp Executed on clicking the left mouse button
LeftClickDown Executed on releasing the left mouse button
LeftDClick Executed on doubleclicking the left mouse button
RightClickUp Executed on clicking the right mouse button
RightClickDown Executed on releasing the right mouse button
RightDClick Executed on doubleclicking the right mouse button
SetFocus Executed on activating the element
KillFocus Executed on leaving the element
Draw Executed on drawing the element

Controls the visibility of elements in pictures under Windows CE. Projects which are used under CE and on the PC can be created more flexible; the user handling is improved. For example buttons can be made invisible which lead to pictures which cannot be displayed under CE (e.g. IPA).

Active: The picture/element is also visible under Windows CE.

Default: Active
