Parent page: Component Categories

The Tool Palette's Altium Standard tab consists of standard type components with an Altium theme (look and feel) applied. In most cases, custom methods and additional properties are available.

To see the associated Properties and Events for an Altium Standard component placed on a script Form, use the Properties or Events tab in the Object Inspector panel (View » Panels » Object Inspector).

To find a particular Method (or Property) for an Altium Standard component, use the Code Completion feature (see Script Editor Tools). For example, typing TXPCheckBox.get the Code Completion window will show a suitably filtered list of methods and properties for the TXPCheckBox component. Use Ctrl+Space to manually invoke the Code Completion window.

Use the Code Completion (Ctrl+Space) feature to see the available Methods or Properties for a component.
Use the Code Completion (Ctrl+Space) feature to see the available Methods or Properties for a component.

Inheritance

The majority of Altium Standard Control classes inherit their Methods (and Properties and Events) from the Delphi VCL TCustomControl base class. The descending inheritance is typically:

TCustomControl
    TXPCustomControl
        ... Altium Standard controls

Therefore the methods for each Altium Standard control covered here are in addition to the standard TCustomControl methods, as noted in each reference.

By way of example, the descending inheritance for the TXPCheckBox control is as follows:

Inheritance path Methods
TCustomControl See the matching Delphi reference.
    TXPCustomControl See the TXPCheckBox entry below.
        TWinXPCustomButtonControl See the TXPCheckBox entry below.
            TXPCheckControl See the TXPCheckBox entry below.
                TXPCheckBox See the TXPCheckBox entry below.

The exceptions to the 'TCustomControl TXPCustomControl xxx' inheritance path are the TXPLabel, TXPSpinnerImage, TXPImageList, TXPSplitter and TXStatusBar controls. These inherit directly from standard controls, as noted in their respective entries below.

Component Methods

In general, the Altium Standard components offer the basic methods of its common counterpart along with a number of additional, custom methods. For example, both the TXPCheckBox and common TCheckBox components offer the GetChecked function, whereas the GetAlphaImage function is exclusive to TXPCheckBox.
