Bring to front? Send to Back? Ordering of Controls

Post by bob3695 » Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:59 pm

Hey guys,

I can't seem to find any way order controls on a screen. I would like to have buttons that get covered by an slide out sub page. Use case is the slide out item would have less used buttons that I have connected to toggle button to bring the slide in and out. In the designer whatever item I select last is on top but once in the software the buttons I want on the bottom appear on top. Is there any way to set the ordering of the controls?

Controls are drawn in the following order in the app:

WebViews
Images
Gauges
Buttons
Text
Subpages

Within each category, controls are drawn in the order they are added to the interface (making a copy of an object & deleting the original counts as adding it last). Typically, if you want one control to be 'on top' of another, you should simply hide one, using a reveal flag.

I wonder if the software has been updated since this post?

There is now an option to "Bring to Front" or "Send to Back", but it still doesn't appear to enable me to bring a web view in front of an image?

I'm using a panel image to section the app and would like my webview to appear on top of the image so that it is framed by it, but I don't seem to be able to do that?
