Properties Details

anchors

Enables a component to stick to a specific side of form and/or to grow or shrink when a window is resized.

If opposite anchors are activated then the component with grow or shrink with the window. For example if Top and Bottom are activated, then the component will grow/shrink when the window is vertically resized. If Left and Right are activated then the component will grow/shrink when the window is horizontally resized.

If opposite anchors are not activated, then the component will keep a constant distance from the sides of the window which correspond to the activated anchors.

Returns Number

Sample

var form = solutionModel.newForm('mediaForm', 'db:/example_data/parent_table', null, false, 400, 300);
var strechAllDirectionsLabel = form.newLabel('Strech all directions', 10, 10, 380, 280);
strechAllDirectionsLabel.background = 'red';
strechAllDirectionsLabel.anchors = SM_ANCHOR.ALL;
var strechVerticallyLabel = form.newLabel('Strech vertically', 10, 10, 190, 280);
strechVerticallyLabel.background = 'green';
strechVerticallyLabel.anchors = SM_ANCHOR.WEST | SM_ANCHOR.NORTH | SM_ANCHOR.SOUTH;
var strechHorizontallyLabel = form.newLabel('Strech horizontally', 10, 10, 380, 140);
strechHorizontallyLabel.background = 'blue';
strechHorizontallyLabel.anchors = SM_ANCHOR.NORTH | SM_ANCHOR.WEST | SM_ANCHOR.EAST;
var stickToTopLeftCornerLabel = form.newLabel('Stick to top-left corner', 10, 10, 200, 100);
stickToTopLeftCornerLabel.background = 'orange';
stickToTopLeftCornerLabel.anchors = SM_ANCHOR.NORTH | SM_ANCHOR.WEST; // This is equivalent to SM_ANCHOR.DEFAULT
var stickToBottomRightCornerLabel = form.newLabel('Stick to bottom-right corner', 190, 190, 200, 100);
stickToBottomRightCornerLabel.background = 'pink';
stickToBottomRightCornerLabel.anchors = SM_ANCHOR.SOUTH | SM_ANCHOR.EAST;
