Thread: Drag a numeric field onto Canvas - don't want spinner

    Drag a numeric field onto Canvas - don't want spinner

    Dragging a numeric field onto a form produces a different field to dragging a numeric field onto a Canvas.

    The Canvas is a spinner. Why?
    I don't want a spinner - how can I change it from a spinner? Or even better can I drag it onto Canvas as a non-spinner?

    Hi Cyrilbaskir,

    If you look under the advanced canvas controls there is a Numeric TexBox, you can use that and set the Data source if you don't want a spinner.

    I think this is an ER: assign a control as a default for a data type.

    In the future, when we can visually subclass controls, this functionality will be even more relevant.

    Sure one can do that. But it takes a lot longer. For example, creating this simple form took quite a long time (try it!).

    I dragged the fields onto the canvas so I would have the caption and data source at hand. I then created the numeric textboxes.
    The copy across of the captions and data source is time consuming, as one has to open and close the attributes may times.

    We could probably add a shift+click to add a numeric textbox rather than a spinner if its that important.

    Yes please.
    I suggest it would be more user-friendly to make the default a numeric textbox and shift+click the spinner.
