Component Property Sheet
The component property sheet is a series of property pages that allow the user to edit the properties of one or more components. The CODCompPropSheet class encapsulates the functionality of the component property sheet. Each property page in the property sheet has a corresponding class. This section describes each class used to implement the component property sheet.
CODCompPropSheet
The component property sheet handles a series of property pages that allow the user to change the attributes of a component or set of components. The pages that appear in this property sheet vary depending on the type of properties that the selected components possess. For example, although a rectangle component can be surrounded by lines and filled with color, it cannot be filled with text. Consequently, there is no text page in the property sheet when a rectangle is the selected object.

CODDefPropSheet

If multi-line is checked, then the vertical alignment fields are disabled. The horizontal and vertical alignment values are set using radio buttons.
