Return Value

Opens a child panel with return values. The position of the panel is relative to the calling object, the coordinates are specified via offsetX and offsetY. The return values are handled in the same way like ChildPanelOnReturn()ChildPanelOnReturn(). Before the panel is opened a check is made as to whether this panel is already open (isPanelOpen()). The size ratio between child and parent panel is 1 (scale = 1). If the size of the parent panel is changed, the child panel is not scaled to the new size. See chapter ChildPanelOnRelativModalReturn() for an example.

A child panel can not be resized. The only exception to this is the use of Layout Management in the child panel.

This function cannot be used in panel events.
