This article explains the cause and solution to a CODESOFT problem that causes the wrong object properties to appear when right clicking on an object.
When editing a label in CODESOFT and right clicking on a field, the properties shown sometimes are from a different object on the label.
There are a couple of possible explanations for this phenomenon:
- Clicking on an object with the left mouse button in CODESOFT will put the focus of the software on that object. If you right-clicked on another object without first left clicking on it, you will still see the properties of the former object.
- There are multiple objects at the spot where you right-clicked. When that happened, right-click will only apply to the object that is ‘on top’. If you wish the right-click to apply to another object at the same location, you will either have to move the ‘top’ object out of the way or perform a send-to-back to effectively send it to the ‘bottom’ so the item below will be the ‘top’ object. Depending on the number of objects, you may have to do this a few times.
