New to Delphi 5 - some properties are missing (Views: 35)


Problem/Question/Abstract:

I just found out that Ctrl3D property is not showing in IDE in all components.I tried with TDBEdit, TEdit, TStringGrid. The code has Ctrl3D published, but it wouldn't show on any of components in Delphi 5.

Answer:

The Object Inspector can now hide properties based on categories. The Ctl3D property is part of the "Legacy" category, which is hidden by default.

Right click on the Object Inspector, and select the View submenu. Click on 'Legacy' to show the Ctl3D property. You can also select 'All' to show all properties.

You can tell exactly how many properties are currently hidden by looking closely at the statusbar at the bottom of the D5 Object Inspector window.
