Selecting Parent Controls or Cells on a Form

From a menu, you can select a parent control or cell that you want to modify in a form. This lets you see the parent hierarchy for that control and makes it easy to select a control that is behind another control on the form.

Note: You can also select a control, and then press the Esc key to select the next highest control in the hierarchy.

To select containers:

  1. Select a control in a form, or the form itself.
  2. Right-click and select Select Element. In the menu that opens, a hierarchical list of controls is displayed. The parent control is at the bottom of the list.
  3. Click a control in the menu to select it in the form. If you click (Selected cell) or (Containing cell), the cell in which the control was placed is selected.
Note: If you drag a field control (or label control), the corresponding label control (or field control) is also moved.
