Position settings

Positioning elements

Because the size of image segments 2,4,5,6 and 8 (see above) will depend on the size of the user's screen, you cannot place control elements in these segments.


Image 1: The segments of the background image

Rules:

Control elements:

  • You are only permitted to position control elements in image segments 1,3,7 and 9
The following applies to window areas for info, status and canvas areas:
  • The upper left corner must always be placed in one of the following segments: 1,3,7 or 9.
  • The bottom right corner must always be placed in one of the following segments: 1,3,7 or 9.


Specifying the coordinates for positioning

The most common approach is to relate the coordinates specified to the upper left corner. Because the overall size of the Player window is unknown to the designer, however, the following rules are used:

Image segment 1:
        x-position: distance from left edge
        y-Position: distance from upper edge

Image segment 2:
        x-position: distance from right edge with negative sign
        y-position: distance from upper edge

Image segment 3:
        x-position: distance from left edge
        y-Position: distance from bottom edge with negative sign

Image segment 4:
        x-position: distance from right edge with negative sign
        y-position: distance from bottom edge with negative sign


To make determining a coordinate as simple as possible, you will find a help dialog window in the places where positioning coordinates need to be entered. Open this dialog window and then left click on the required position and then on OK. The position will then be calculated complete with sign and adopted for the entry.

left click on position.

Please note: It is not possible to specify coordinates within the areas shaded in red.
