Note

  • The Float value is available as of GeneXus 15 Upgrade 4.
    Some considerations:
    • It only applies for Character or Numeric based attributes/variables. Another data types (such as Image, Audio, etc) will behave as its value would have been Top. 
    • On Android, the value of the invite message and the label must be the same; otherwise, the label adopts the value of the invite message.
  • As of GeneXus 15 Upgrade 4 the default value of this property can be changed at the Pattern settings of the Work With for Smart Devices Pattern.
  • For web environments, so far only the options "None" and "Left" are supported.
