The controls
Home Documentation Smile Custom GUI Developing your own custom dialog The controls  
The sections below present the different kinds of controls. All controls are objects of the same class: dialog item. Two different kinds of control differ by their control kind property, an integer.

For instance, the control kind of a Push Button is 368, while it is 288 for a Static Text Box.

The sections below provide the following information for each kind of control:
  • the value of its control kind property,
  • the events that the item detects, in other terms what user's action(s) will result in a notification to a script,
  • where relevant, the information specific to that kind of control

When programming a dialog, keep in mind that the click in event is sent, not to the control targeted by the user's action, but to its container: the dialog window itself or possibly a container such as a Group Box.
