By default, all confirmation dialogs show the title on the left and the close icon on the right. For right to left languages, you might want to change this.
- Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Xdialog/Understanding the Grid Nature of a Dialog Box.xml
While Xdialog does a pretty good job of spacing out the controls you define in a logical way, you will typically want to tweak the default layout of a dialog box. The controls on an Xdialog are laid out in much the same way as text is laid out in a document that you create on your word processor (actually a word processor that does not have automatic word-wrap). In a word processor, the characters appear on the line, starting at the left and moving to the right until you press Enter to move to the next line (remember, we are talking about a pretty lame word processor that does not have an automatic word-wrap feature). Then, text appears on the next line until you press Enter to move to the third line and so on. You can line up columns of text in your word processor by using the Tab key.
- Getting and Setting Ink Control Values
/documentation/pages/Guides/Mobile and Web Components/UX/Controls/Data Controls/Ink/Getting and Setting Ink Control Values.xml
The Ink Control is a 'Data Control' and the getValue() and
setValue() functions, that are used with other data controls, will also work with the Ink Control.
The data generated from any given image defined in the Ink Control is stored as simple text. This
makes ink files lightweight and easy to store.
- Table and Set Information Dialog Boxes
/documentation/pages/Desktop/Reference/Design/View/Database/Table and Set Information Dialog Boxes.xml
When you are viewing a form or browse, it is often helpful to see the structure of the table or set on which the form or browse is based. The View > Structure Information command displays the Set Information or Table Information dialog box. These dialog boxes provide quick summaries of table relationships (in a set), field and index characteristics, and database statistics.

- Automatic Backup and Revision Control of Layouts and Field Rules
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/FieldRules/Automatic Backup and Revision Control of Layouts and Field Rules.xml
Every time you make an edit to any Form, Label, Letter, Report, Browse or Field Rule, Alpha Anywhere automatically make a backup of the object you editing. You can roll back to any previous version of your layout, or Field Rule definition that you want. This means that it is now virtually impossible to lose work because of a file corruption. And it lets you experiment with your layouts more freely because if you make a design change you don't like, its easy to revert back to a pervious version.
To restore a prior version of a Layout, right click on the Layout and select the 'Restore Prior Version' command.
