When an object is locked, we can not change, neither his position, nor its size. but we can still change its color. This is not logical.
i disagree with this behavior
When an object is locked, we should not be allowed to change its color(s).
(sorry for my broken english, i try to do my best)
I filed this as a bug report as CAR #342471. The behavior goes back at least to LV 7.1, probably longer.
As this choice is in a menu related to positioning and order I've always thought of the lock as a position lock, not a change lock.
the position is locked, the size is locked ... and color should also be locked.
When an object is locked, it can not be half locked.
I believe locked only applies to size and position, too.
only for position and size ?yes, obviously, since for now we can still change the color.
This is either not a bug or it is a much bigger bug than just the color. Here are a few more things you can do to interact with a control that is locked.
The list goes on and on. Locking as currently defined only covers 3 operations: selection, context menu (right click) and resize. We can decide to change the definition of the feature but until then I'm closing the CAR that AQ created. If you think we should change the feature, feel free to Kudo the idea.
"only covers 3 operations: selection, context menu (right click) and resize"
For me, this is ok. I usually use locking just for not accidently moving it (especially for tab controls or pictures where you want to drop control/indictors on top).
I still would like to be able to change everything else.
After GregR talked to me yesterday... I agree it would be bad to change this behavior.
