Member variable XbpTabPage():drawMode Foundation
Specifies the drawing mode of the tab page object.
The :drawMode instance variable specifies the mode used to display the XbpTabPage object on the screen. In the default draw mode (XBP_DRAW_NORMAL), the operating system takes full control over the drawing process. In this mode, a tab page object is displayed using default imagery and the object's appearance cannot be controlled by the application. However, this default behaviour can be overriden. If the value XBP_DRAW_OWNER or XBP_DRAW_OWNERADVANCED is assigned to the :drawMode instance variable, no drawing is performed by the operating system. Instead, the Xbase++ runtime system uses xbeP_Draw events to notify the application about the display state of the XbpTabPage object. The application is responsible for processing this event, and for creating the on-screen visualization of the tab page object. For this, the Graphics Engine commands can be used.
This protocol is called owner-drawing because displaying the tab page object is the responsibility of the object's owner. Using owner-drawing, an application can customize the visualization and the behaviour of an XbpTabPage object.
|XBP_DRAW_NORMAL *)||Tab page object is drawn by the system|
|XBP_DRAW_OWNER||Caption or image within the tab element of the object may be drawn by the application.|
|XBP_DRAW_OWNERADVANCED||All elements of the tab page object may be drawn by the application.|
The desired drawing mode must be assigned to :drawMode before the method :create() is executed.
