DrawStyle - Name Property

The name of the Drawstyle

Member of DrawStyle (PRIM_THM.DrawStyle)

Data Type - String


The Name property identifies the DrawStyle.
Unlike most components, where the name is simply the unique name of the variable instance, the Name of a DrawStyle is also used to define its use.
Most user defined DrawStyles will have abstract names such as Heading1, Subtitle or Emphasis. However, some names already have a predefined meaning such as PushButton, ListItem and ListColumn. DrawStyles with these names are automatically applied to controls as and when appropriate. The full list of predefined names is below.
This naming sytem allows for simple overriding of default behaviors. For example, if you define a DrawStyle called ListColumn and set the Fill color to red, all column headings will automatically turn red.
