Page Windows

The page window component exists only for the alphanumeric Form Painter. The graphical Form Painter uses a separate design window for the page layout.

When you define page windows, the window names are linked to page names. You must specify the position and size of the window on the assigned page.

Define the position of a window by specifying the left margin and upper margin and the size of a window by specifying its width and height.

Left margin

Space between the window and left margin of the page

Upper margin

Space between the window and upper margin of the page

Window width

Width of the window depending on the page format selected

Window height

Height of the window depending on the page format selected

Note that the width of the main window must be the same on all pages. All other window types can have different sizes and positions on different pages.

To print multiple columns, define several main windows on a page. As text entry is continuous, once the first main window has been filled, output continues in the second main window.
