Always false. This element cannot have input focus.
An active control is the one with keyboard focus—that is, the one that accepts keystrokes, or in the case of a Button, is selected when the user types Return or Enter in Windows, or the space bar in Mac OS.
The alignment style for this element. If defined, this value overrides the alignChildren setting for the parent container.
This can be a single string, which indicates the alignment for the orientation specified in the parent container, or an array of two strings, indicating both the horizontal and vertical alignment (in that order). Allowed values depend on the orientation value of the parent container. They are not case sensitive.
- For orientation=row:
- For orientation=column:
- For orientation=stack:
The boundaries of the element, in parent-relative coordinates.
Setting an element's size or location changes its bounds property, and vice-versa.
|characters||Number||r/w||A number of characters for which to reserve space when calculating the preferred size of the element. |
|children||Array of Object||readonly||An array of child elements.|
True if this element is enabled.
An enabled element can accept input, according to its type. When false, control elements do not accept input, and all types of elements have a dimmed appearance.
|graphics||ScriptUIGraphics||readonly||The graphics object that can be used to customize the element's appearance, in response to the |
|helpTip||String||r/w||The help text that is displayed when the mouse hovers over the element.|
The number of pixels to indent the element during automatic layout.
Applies for column orientation and left alignment, or row orientation and top alignment.
The text justification style. (default: left)
right. Justification only works if this value is set on creation of the element.
The upper left corner of this element relative to its parent.
The location is defined as [bounds.x, bounds.y]. Setting an element's location changes its bounds property, and vice-versa.
|maximumSize||Dimension||r/w|| The maximum height and width to which the element can be resized.|
|minimumSize||Dimension||r/w||The minimum height and width to which the element can be resized.|
|parent||Object||readonly||The parent element.|
The preferred size, used by layout managers to determine the best size for each element.
If not explicitly set by a script, value is established by the UI framework in which ScriptUI is employed, and is based on such attributes of the element as its text, font, font size, icon size, and other UI framework-specific attributes.A script can explicitly set preferredSize before the layout manager is invoked in order to establish an element size other than the default.
An object that contains one or more creation properties of the container (properties used only when the element is created).
Creation properties of a StaticText object can include:
- multiline: When false (the default), the control displays a single line of text. When true, the control displays multiple lines, in which case the text wraps within the width of the control.
- scrolling: When false (the default), the displayed text cannot be scrolled. When true, the displayed text can be vertically scrolled using the Up Arrow and Down Arrow; this case implies multiline=true.
|shortcutKey||String||r/w||The key sequence that invokes the |
onShortcutKey callback for this element (in Windows only).
The current dimensions of this element.
Initially undefined, and unless explicitly set by a script, it is defined by a LayoutManager. A script can explicitly set size before the layout manager is invoked to establish an element size other than the preferredSize or the default size, but this is not recommended. Defined as [bounds.width, bounds.height]. Setting an element's size changes its bounds property, and vice-versa.
|text||String||r/w||The text to display, a localizable string.|
|type||String||readonly||The element type, "statictext".|
True if this element is shown, false if it is hidden.
When a container is hidden, its children are also hidden, but they retain their own visibility values, and are shown or hidden accordingly when the parent is next shown.
|window||Window||readonly||The window that this element belongs to.|
|windowBounds||Bounds||readonly||The bounds of this element relative to the top-level parent window.|
