Method XbpActiveXControl():show() Foundation

Redisplays a hidden ActiveX control.

:show() --> lSuccess

This method returns the value .T. (true) when the hidden ActiveX control could be redisplayed, otherwise .F. (false) is returned.


The method :show() redisplays a hidden ActiveX control on the screen. An ActiveX control is hidden when the method :hide() is executed or the instance variable :visible is set to .F. (false) prior to the call to the :create() method. Whether a window is currently visible can be determined using the method :isVisible().

If a control has the OLECTRL_INVISIBLEATRUNTIME flag set in its :controlFlags instance variable, it cannot be shown unless the container's design mode is switched on. See the :userMode instance variable for further information.
