FORM

Guide Section: An EASAP GUI | EASAP Tree: USER INTERFACE > FORM LIST


A FORM defines a popup window that appears following an OPEN FORM ACTION.

  • right click USER INTERFACE> USER INTERFACE STYLE LIST
  • select Add FORM LIST
  • right-click FORM LIST
  • select Add FORM

Add child GUI objects such as CHOICE LIST, REALBOX, LOGICBOX, etc….(see Tree Objects > FORM LIST )

FORM shares most of its child GUI objects with TABBED PANE.

Unlike a TABBED PANE:

  • a FORM is hidden by default
  • must be opened using an EVENT
  • may be closed or hidden again by a User

FORM
Optional Parameters:
Title:Text displayed on title bar of form window, object references allowed
Delimiter:Character to delimit object references in Title: (default: % )
Size:Size of the FORM window in pixels; width,height (eg. 640,480 )

An example FORM for entering a value is shown below.

If a POLL interval is triggered while a FORM is open, the FORM will be closed automatically so they should not be present together on the same TABBED PANE.
