The Quick Edit feature allows you to easily edit a control by changing its name, caption, alignment, and layout options.

To edit a control:

  1. Right-click the component and click Quick Edit to open the dialog box with further settings.
  2. To edit the control name, type the new name in the Name field.
  3. To edit the text displayed on the control, type the text in the Caption/Text field.
    Note: This option is not available for controls that do not display the Caption or the Text property.
  4. Click Align to modify the alignment of the component.
    Quick Edit Align
    The first group of buttons allows you to apply any of the following alignment options to the controls inside the form:
    • Most top
    • Top
    • Most left
    • Left
    • Client
    • Right
    • Most right
    • Most bottom
    • Bottom
    The second group of buttons contains the following options:
    • None: Clears all the alignment settings
    • Scale: Allows you to specify the scale of the control.
    • Center: Aligns the control to the absolute center within the space available in the form
    • Contents: Fills the form with the control buttons for additional values.
    The third group of buttons allows you to span controls horizontally or vertically, center-aligned or not, within the space available in the form.
    The fourth group of buttons allows you to span columns vertically in the form and align them to the left, right, or center.
  5. Click Layout to configure margin and padding settings for the component.
    Quick Edit Layout
    Enter the required values for Margins and Padding in the corresponding fields, which are distributed to illustrate their respective effect in the layout.
    Select the Lock icon to automatically apply the same value to all fields while editing only one field (margin or padding).
  6. Click the OK icon or press Enter to save the changes.
    Note: Press Escape, click outside the dialog box, or click the Discard icon to discard the changes.
