For text and combo boxes, you can define the maximum number of characters that the user can enter. If this control field property is uncertain, the default setting will be zero.

If the control is linked to a database and the text length is to be accepted from the field definition of the database, you must not enter the text length here. The settings are only accepted from the database if the control property was not defined ("Not Defined" state).


स्क्रोलपट्टी वा स्पिन बाकसका लागि तेर्सो वा ठाडो अभिमुखिकरण वर्णन गर्दछ।

किनाराको रङ

Specifies the border color for controls that have the "Border" property set to "flat".

क्लिकमा फोकस लिनुहोस

If you set this option to "Yes", the Push button receives the focus when you click the button.

घुसाउने बटन

Numerical fields, currency fields, date and time fields can be introduced as spin buttons in the form.

चयन लुकाउनुहोस

Specifies whether a text selection on a control remains selected when the focus is no longer on a control. If you set Hide selection to "No", the selected text remains selected when the focus is no longer on the control that contains the text.

Defines the width of the control.


Specifies whether you want the control field to appear in a document's printout.


Specifies if a Push button behaves as a Toggle Button. If you set Toggle to "Yes", you can switch between the "selected" and "not selected" control states when you click the button or press the Spacebar while the control has the focus. A button in the "selected" state appears "pressed in".

ट्याब क्रम

The "Tab order" property determines the order in which the controls are focused in the form when you press the Tab key. In a form that contains more than one control, the focus moves to the next control when you press the Tab key. You can specify the order in which the focus changes with an index under "Tab order".


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.

तपाईँंले फरक नियन्त्रणहरूको अनुक्रमणिका सजिलै सँग ट्याब क्रम संवादमा परिभाषित पनि गर्न सक्नुहुन्छ।

दशमलव शुध्दता

With numerical and currency fields you can determine the number of digits displayed to the right of the decimal point.


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.

दृश्यात्मक साइज

Specifies the size of scrollbar thumb in "value units". A value of ("Scroll value max." minus "Scroll value min." ) / 2 would result in a thumb which occupies half of the background area.

If set to 0, then the thumb's width will equal its height.


Specifies if the action of a control such as a spin button repeats when you click the control and hold the mouse button down.


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.


यदि तपाईँं म्याक्रोहरू सँग काम गर्नुहुन्छ भने,निश्चित गर्नुहोस कि नियन्त्रणहरूका नामहरू अद्वितिय हुनु पर्दछ।

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.


Specifies to show or hide the navigation items in a selected Navigation bar control. Navigation items are the following: First record, Previous record, Next record, Last record.

नेभिगेसन पट्टी

Specifies whether to display the Navigation bar on the lower border of the table control.
