Setup strings for LaunchPad objects


Captured from a message in a public CompuServe Forum 
Author: Dick Goran, (see EMail Addresses) (see also Changing the 
LaunchPad; see Sample code to create a LaunchPad for a working example) 

 
The third edition of the REXX Reference Summary Handbook has all of the
setup strings for WPLaunchPad. In addition,
I have included them here:

  Class WPLaunchPad

  Key Name         Value          Description    (OS/2 3.0)
  ---------------------------------------------------------
  DRAWEROBJECTS    n,object [, ...]
                                  A comma delimited list,
                                  each of which
                                  represents a drawer
                                  number followed by
                                  either object IDs or
                                  fully qualified path
                                  names. The drawer
                                  number (0 = LaunchPad
                                  itself, 1 = first
                                  drawer, etc.) is
                                  separated from the
                                  object name with a
                                  comma.

  FPOBJECTS        <object ID> | filename [, ...]
                                  A comma delimited list
                                  of objects to be added
                                  to the end of the
                                  LaunchPad. The value(s)
                                  for this key name
                                  is/are an object IDs or
                                  fully qualified path
                                  names.

       Note:  This is equivalent to specifying
       DRAWEROBJECTS with a drawer number of 0.

  LPACTIONSTYLE    TEXT           Display action buttons
                                  as text.

                   OFF            Do not display action

  LPCLOSEDRAWER    NO | YES       Specifies whether a

                                  after a LaunchPad
                                  object is opened.

  LPDRAWERTEXT     NO | YES       Specifies whether

                                  LaunchPad drawers (not
                                  buttons).

  LPFLOAT          NO | YES       Specifies whether the

                                  to the top of other
                                  windows.

  LPHIDECTLS       YES | NO       Specifies whether the

                                  controls (i.e. title
                                  bar and icon) should be
                                  hidden.

  LPSMALLICONS     NO | YES       Specifies whether small
                                  icons or default size
                                  icons should be
                                  displayed on the
                                  LaunchPad.

  LPTEXT           NO | YES       Specifies whether
                                  object titles should be
                                  displayed on the
                                  LaunchPad buttons (not
                                  drawers).

  LPVERTICAL       NO | YES       Specifies whether the
                                  LaunchPad should be
                                  displayed horizontally
                                  or vertically.
