Infinite Scroll Canvas DataCard Y Property Behavior

Using the infinite scroll canvas data cards, the Y property is the order of the cards. This is super helpful, but when I address that property with either 'Self.Y' or 'Parent.Y' from a component within the card, the return value is not the order position, it's the pixel value of the top position of the card. Is there any way to get that order position instead of the pixel/screen location?

Hi @Ajh :

Could you tell me:

  • What is the "order" you mentioned?Is it a control?

Besides, please let me explain the difference between "Self.Y" and "Parent.Y":

Self.Y can get the Y axis value of the control itself.For example:


Parent.Y can get the Y axis value of the control's parent control.For example:


If my response is not what you want, could you describe your app in detail and provide some screenshots?

Best Regards,



That's not quite what I'm looking at. If you go to new screen - scrollable canvas you get a new scrollable canvas and you add sections to the bottom of it. Each section is in an 'order' from the top most section. So in this screen shot you can see that the default section is the height of the full page almost, while section 1 and section 2 are 100 pixels tall. When you go to Section 2 (which is DataCard3 in the tree view) you can see the properties show the x,y, positions and the height and width.  Hopefully this gif loads and you can see me navigate to show where the Y is shown in advanced properties as 2 instead of the actual 'physical' Y position of 1048 as shown in the basic properties screen for that datacard.recording2.gif
