DriveWorks Solo 15: Caption, Text (Appearance Property) [send feedback...]

Caption or Text

The caption or text property is the text to display, on the user form, alongside or on the control.

Property Type: Static

Default Value: Takes the name given to the control when it was added

To Change the Default Value

Ensure the property is a static property (It will display the gray orb alongside the property name)

The default value of the static Caption property can be changed by typing the required caption directly into the caption property field

  1. Click in the Caption property for the control to be changed
  2. Type the required caption directly into the property field
Changing the Caption will NOT change the name of the control
When changing the caption, spaces in between words are permitted. Capitalizing each word without using spaces will not have the same affect as when the control is first created.

Examples
