The position of an object may be changed by dragging the object within the Surface. The size and shape of an object may be changed by dragging the green handles that appear when the object is selected. Position, size, and shape may also be edited in the Display Attributes of the Property Sheet.
The color of various aspects of an object may be edited in the Format Bar and in the Display Attributes of the Property Sheet. Some color aspects that may be edited include: On/Off, Text, Border, Back, Fore, Hilite, and Shadow.
Certain objects allow more in-depth editing of appearance,
including such aspects as: Border Style & Width,
Scale Markings, Button or Thumb
(knob) Style, Control Orientation,
Textures may be applied as the background for certain objects. Textures are images imported via the Display Attributes of the Property Sheet. Pictures may also be imported, from the Control Bar, for use as Surface backgrounds or placement of logos, etc. Textures and Pictures both utilize the Image Dialog box. Frames may be placed from the Control Bar, for organizing and labeling associated controls. Text (Static Controls) may be placed from either the Object Bar or the Control Bar. Text/Static Controls can also help organize and label, as well as provide backgrounds for, other controls. Pictures, Frames, and Text/Static Controls may be grouped with associated controls, so they might all be selected and positioned as one object. The appearance of the Surface itself can be edited in ways similar to those described above.
