Q: How do I modify groups of objects in a report in ObjectPAL?

 

A: The following code shows how using Report.enumUIObjectNames and using the UIObject.attach methods:

method pushButton(var eventInfo Event)
var
  tc  TCursor
  r   Report
  ui  UIObject
endVar
r.load("REPORT1.RSL")
r.enumUIObjectNames ("OBNAMES.DB")
tc.open("OBNAMES.DB")
scan tc for tc.ObjectClass="Text" or tc.ObjectClass="Box" or
            tc.ObjectClass="Field":
  ui.attach(r,tc.ObjectName)
  ui.color=RED
endScan
endmethod
