Assigns a property setting on all, or a certain class of, controls in a Container object.
Container.SetAll(cProperty, Value [, cClass])
- Specifies the property to be set.
- Specifies the new setting for the property. The data type of Value depends on the property being set.
- Specifies the class name (the class on which the object is based, not the Visual FoxPro base class for the object).
Use the SetAll method to set a property for all, or a certain class of, controls in a Container. For example, to set the BackColor property on all the Column objects in a Grid control to red, issue the following:
Form1.Grid1.SetAll("BackColor", RGB(255, 0, 0), "Column")
You can also set the properties for objects that are contained by other objects within the container. To set the ForeColor property of the Headers that are contained by each Column object contained in a Grid control to green, issue the following:
Form1.Grid1.SetAll("ForeColor", RGB(0, 255, 0), "Header")
The following example uses the SetAll method with the DynamicBackColor property to specify the background colors for the records in a Grid control. If the number of a record displayed in the Grid is even, the record's DynamicBackColor is white, otherwise its DynamicBackColor is green.
A Grid control is placed on a form, and the
customer table is opened and its contents displayed in the grid. The Caption property is used to specify a different header caption (Customer ID) for the CUST_ID field. A command button is placed on the form to close the form.
