%CRLF% in Panel

Post by nodochau » Thu Jul 30, 2020 7:21 pm

Hello,
I am creating a dialog with some Panels. When I setdialogproperty for panels, the %CRLF% does not work.
Do you have any idea?
Thanks s lot

Do you mean in the caption? Can you explain what you are trying to do and show us your code?

Hi Marcus,
Yes, it is in Caption. I want two separate lines show in the panel.

Code: Select all

Dialog>Dialog1
object Dialog1: TForm
  Left = 2413
  Top = 110
  HelpContext = 5000
  BorderIcons = [biSystemMenu]
  Caption = 'CustomDialog'
  ClientHeight = 205
  ClientWidth = 586
  Color = clBtnFace
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -14
  Font.Name = 'MS Sans Serif'
  Font.Style = []
  OldCreateOrder = True
  ShowHint = True
  OnTaskBar = False
  PixelsPerInch = 120
  TextHeight = 16
  object Panel1: TPanel
    Left = 195
    Top = 65
    Width = 185
    Height = 41
    Caption = 'Panel1'
    TabOrder = 8
  end
end
EndDialog>Dialog1
SetDialogProperty>dialog1,Panel1,Caption,Value: Input %CRLF% Samples: 30
Show>dialog1,

Panels don't accept a multiline caption. The solution I've used is to place a label in the panel.

Code: Select all

Dialog>Dialog1
object Dialog1: TForm
  Left = 613
  Top = 189
  HelpContext = 5000
  BorderIcons = [biSystemMenu]
  Caption = 'CustomDialog'
  ClientHeight = 140
  ClientWidth = 228
  Color = clBtnFace
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -11
  Font.Name = 'MS Sans Serif'
  Font.Style = []
  OldCreateOrder = True
  ShowHint = True
  OnTaskBar = False
  PixelsPerInch = 96
  TextHeight = 13
  object Panel1: TPanel
    Left = 21
    Top = 18
    Width = 185
    Height = 87
    TabOrder = 0
    object Label1: TLabel
      Left = 72
      Top = 16
      Width = 32
      Height = 13
      Caption = 'One'#13#10'Two'#13#10'Three'
    end
  end
end
EndDialog>Dialog1

Show>dialog1,
