Control Pseudo-object


While thinBasic allows you to define and manipulate controls via procedural commands, it also introduces the concept of the Control Pseudo-objects.


These entities behave like objects (have methods and properties), allow processing of events and make the whole process of control manipulation much easier, compared to the low level Win32 procedural way. An example:


myButton.X = 10

myButton.Y = 10

myButton.Text = "Open"


How do you create control pseudo-object variable?


They are created for you in the following cases:

oDIALOG NEW created dialog from #RESOURCE (then control pseudo-objects named as the controls in the resource for given dialog are created)

oControl Add ... has NAME parameter specified (then control pseudo-object named as NAME specifies is created for given control)
