196 N e w f e a t u r e W D W B WM CHECK BOX & RADIO BUTTON CONTROLS: ACCESS OPTIONS BY PROGRAMMING VIA THEIR CAPTIONS In earlier versions of WINDEV, the options of Check Box and Radio Button controls could only be accessed using their in- dexes, for programming purposes. It was a hidden source of mistakes. When an option was added or deleted in a 7-tab window, the indexes changed without warning: The developer had to immediately change these indexes in the source code. In version 26, you can use the caption of the option for pro- gramming. If a caption is added or deleted, it does not change the code. The code becomes: CheckBox.Food = True In multilingual projects, you can use the caption in the lan- guage of your choice. CheckBox.Comida = True If a caption is modified in the 7-tabs window and not in the code, a compilation error is displayed. Benefit provided by this new feature of version 26: Easily handle these controls by programming 197 N e w f e a t u r e W D W B WM TAB PANE: ACCESS PANES BY THEIR NAMES The access to panes evolves in the same way as the access to Check Box controls: it is now possible to use the caption of the pane in the code, instead of its index. Benefit provided by this new feature of version 26: No index? No problem 198 N e w f e a t u r e W D W B WM MAP CONTROL: EVOLUTIONS The possibilities of the Map control take an incredible leap for- ward in version 26!

When this mask is applied, an auto complete feature shows all the files in the directory. In version 26, you can filter these files by extension. • Token edit control: the color of the text entered may be similar to the color of the selected token; the text is there- fore no longer visible. In version 26, an option allows you to define an adaptive text color. • Edit control with custom mask: custom masks can be set by programming using Mask variables. A new Callback is called automatically when a value is assigned to the con- trol. Benefit provided by this new feature of version 26: More refined programming on Edit controls HELP IN YOUR APPLICATIONS 201 N e w f e a t u r e W D W B WM GENERATED HELP: MANAGEMENT OF REPORT LAYERS Reports can consist of several layers.
