Vertical line Y2 position + slide up : all above

Hi all,

We have 4 columns to be printed in a freeform datawindow followed by a horizontal line.

All 4 columns and horizontal line have the setting : slide up all above checked.





---------------------- (l_42)

This works great for us.

What i want to achieve is the Y1 or Y2 position of the horizontal line after the slide up generation by PB.

I am not sure how to explain this.  But no matter what i try , i always end up having the Y1/Y2 values of the design window and not the actual Y1/Y2 positions due to the slide up all above checked property.

Lets say in above example in design time , that the Y1 and Y2 of the horizontal line is = 1000

Data in the 4 columns contain multiple lines , so the line is dropped a few units down. Lets say Y1 and Y2 are visually on 1500 , when i code the following

dw_1.Describe("l_42.Y2") I always end up having 1000 as the value and not 1500.

Any solutions ? Or workarounds ?

Kind regards,

    Hi John,

    I don't think there is a solution. The y2 after the "slide-up" is not available.

    Any workaround depends on what you need the value for?
