BoundsInParent Property

CDXML Name:BoundsInParent
CDX Constant Name:kCDXProp_BoundsInParent
CDX Constant Value:0x206
Data Size:CDXRectangle
Property of objects:kCDXObj_Page
First written/read in:ChemDraw 7.0


The rectangle containing a page in the coordinate space of the containing page.

In ChemDraw 7.0, this is used only for pages that represent individual cells within a Table. In that case, the value stored by this property represents the bounds of a particular cell in the coordinate system of the page containing the table. For tables, it is essential that the BoundsInParent values be consistent: i.e., for two adjacent cells/pages, the coordinates of their common border must be exactly the same in the respective BoundsInParent properties.

If this property is absent:

Although not technically mandatory, if this property is omitted from a page that serves as a cell within a Table, the bounds of that cell will be treated as the null rectangle (0, 0, 0, 0), which isn't very useful.
