Remarks

OBJTOCLIENT(В ) returns the position or dimension of a control or object relative to the client area of the form on which it resides. For example, a control or object can be placed on a page in a page frame, and the page frame is placed on a form. The Top, Left, Width, and Height properties return the position or dimension of a control or object relative to the page on which it is placed. However, you can use OBJTOCLIENT(В ) to determine the position or dimension of a control or object relative to the form on which the page is placed.

The value returned by OBJTOCLIENT(В ) is in pixels.

Example

The following example uses OBJTOCLIENT(В ) to display the positions and dimensions of two check boxes relative to the form they're placed on. The Top, Left, Width, and Height properties are also used to display the positions and dimensions of the two check boxes relative to the page frame on which they're placed.

A command button and a page frame are placed on a form. The PageCount property is used to specify the number of pages on the page frame. The Tabs property is set to true (.T.) to specify that the page frame has tabs for each page. Check boxes are placed on each page in different positions.

When a check box is clicked, the Click procedure for the check box is executed. If the check box is checked, the Top, Left, Width, and Height properties are used to display the positions and dimensions of the check box relative to the page frame, and OBJTOCLIENT(В ) is used to display the positions and dimensions of the check box relative to the form. If the check box is unchecked, the main Microsoft Visual FoxPro window is cleared.
