VALUEMAX attribute

The VALUEMAX attribute defines a upper limit of values displayed in widgets (such as progress bars).


VALUEMAX = integer
  1. integer is an integer literal.


This attribute is typically used to define the upper limit in PROGRESSBAR, SPINEDIT and SLIDER fields.

Default values for VALUEMIN/VALUEMAX depend on the type of the widget:
  • For a PROGRESSBAR, the default is VALUEMIN=0, VALUEMAX=100.
  • For a SLIDER, the default is VALUEMIN=0, VALUEMAX=5.
  • For a SPINEDIT, there is no default.

This attribute is not used by the runtime system to validate the field. Use the INCLUDE attribute to control value boundaries.


For maximum security, when the data is stored in a database, define a CHECK constraint on the SQL column corresponding to the field, in order to allow only values matching the VALUEMIN / VALUEMAX attributes, when an INSERT or UPDATE statement is executed.
