If you do not want the list entries to be written to the database or transmitted to the recipient of the Web form, but rather assigned values that are not visible in the form, you can assign the list entries to other values in a value list. The value list is determined on the Data tab. Under Type of List Contents, select the option "Value List". Then enter the values under List Contents that are to be assigned to the corresponding visible list entries of the form. For the correct assignment, the order in the value list is relevant.

Icona Nota

Estado predefinido

Especifica se unha opción ou caixa de verificación está marcada de forma predefinida.

For grouped option fields, the status of the group corresponding to the default setting is defined by the "Default Status" property.

Estilo

Specifies whether Check boxes and Option buttons are displayed in a 3D look (default) or a flat look.

Etiqueta

The "Label" property sets the label of the control field that is displayed in the form. This property determines the visible label or the column header of the data field in table control forms.

When you create a new control, the description predefined in the "Name" property is used as the default for labeling the control. The label consists of the control field name and an integer numbering the control (for example, CommandButton1). With the "Title" property, you can assign another description to the control so that the label reflects the function of the control. Change this entry in order to assign an expressive label to the control that is visible to the user.

To create a multi-line title, open the combo box using the Arrow button. You can enter a line break by pressing Shift++Enter.

The "Title" property is only used for labeling a form element in the interface visible to the user. If you work with macros, note that at runtime, a control is always addressed through the "Name" property.

For example, in a date field, only numbers or date delimiters are accepted; all alphabet entries typed with your keyboard are ignored.

Nome

Each control field and each form has a "Name" property through which it can be identified. The name will appear in the Form Navigator and, using the name, the control field can be referred to from a macro. The default settings already specify a name which is constructed from using the field's label and number.

Icona Nota

Se traballa con macros, verifique que os nomes dos controis son exclusivos.


The name is also used to group different controls that belong together functionally, such as radio buttons. To do so, give the same name to all members of the group: controls with identical names form a group. Grouped controls can be represented visually by using a Group Box.

Icona Nota

The "Tab order" property is not available to Hidden Controls. If you want, you can also set this property for image buttons and image controls, so that you can select these controls with the Tab key.


When creating a form, an index is automatically assigned to the control fields that are added to this form; every control field added is assigned an index increased by 1. If you change the index of a control, the indices of the other controls are updated automatically. Elements that cannot be focused ("Tabstop = No") are also assigned a value. However, these controls are skipped when using the Tab key.

Tamén pode definir os índices dos diferentes controis na caixa de diálogo Orde de tabulación.

O control pode seleccionarse coa tecla Tabulación.


Tamaño da icona

Specifies whether the icons in a selected Navigation bar should be small or large.

Visíbel

Defines whether the control will be visible in live mode. In design mode, the control is always visible.

Note that if this property is set to "Yes" (the default), this does not necessarily mean the control will really appear on the screen. Additional constraints are applied when calculating a control's effective visibility. For instance, a control placed in a hidden section in Writer will never be visible at all, until at least the section itself becomes visible.

If the property is set to "No", then the control will always be hidden in live mode.

Older OpenOffice.org versions up to 3.1 will silently ignore this property when reading documents which make use of it.

Áncora

Define onde se ancora o control.
