DriveWorks Pro 15: Frame Control [send feedback...]

Target Form Preview

The Frame Control displays a preview of the target form and also gives layout information during design mode.

The information given includes the Name of the target form and its actual Width and Height.

This information is displayed during design mode in the Form Designer along with a background preview of the target form.

Once the user form enters Test Mode the information is hidden and the target form becomes operational.
