Can anyone enlighten me as to the intention/meaning/effect of the ClientEdge
property of Windows?

I have tried it and it appears to have no effect.

I have looked in the Help, including the Dynatext books. It just describes
it as:

>>
ClientEdge Boolean Specifies whether the client area of the window appears
sunken within the frame. · True - Client area appears sunken· False - Client
area does not appear sunken
<<

I have searched Google PowerBuilder Groups and found no discussion of it.

I have searched Google WWW wide and found no discussion of it.

Does anyone have any clues about it?

Thanks

You are not looking good enough. Pay attention to the EDGES of the window.

Thanks Philip.

Surprisingly, given the name of the property and the description in the
Help, that was where I was looking!

I have checked again - changing the setting for windows within our PFC-based
framework, I see no difference (hence my post).

Since you were kind enough to confirm for me that it is supposed to do
something, and that that something is to do with the edges of the window, I
tried again - using File | New | Window - and I see a very obvious
difference (hence your response :-)).

So it looks like our PFC-based framework is stopping the setting from having
any effect - windows always appear as if the setting was FALSE, even if I
have set it to TRUE in the window painter for the object. I have searched
for "clientedge" throughout our PBLs (including PFE and PFC PBLs) - it isn't
referenced anywhere. I have used the Preview option within the window
painter - the ClientEdge setting does have an effect, so it is only when the
application is run that we lose the ClientEdge functionality.

So my question changes to: other than explicit references that we don't
appear to have, what could stop the ClientEdge property setting from having
any effect? Could it be the resize service?

Further info: I have just tried resizing one of our windows, with ClientEdge
set to TRUE - although the window opens without the ClientEdge, as soon as
you start resizing it, the ClientEdge appears.

I will allocate some time to investigate this sometime down the track.

Cheers

Andrew

If you do this in the Open event, it will work (even though it shouldn't be
necessary).

this.Post Resize (this.Width, this.Height)

BTW, this is not a PFC application that I am testing with.

Thanks Steve

The things I need to check are:

Is the problem inherent in the PFC resize service?

If not then is the problem caused by our additions to the of_SetResize()
method? These additions are essentially a rubberbanding technique to resize
the window to just fit around the objects on it (using
of_getminmaxpoints()).

Is there anything else in our framework that might be causing the problem?

When we get a chance to look into these, I will try your suggestion too.

Cheers

Andrew
