The THOUS, MM, and POINTS attributes specify the coordinate measures used to position controls on the REPORT or WINDOW (using runtime properties).

THOUS (PROP:THOUS) specifies thousandths of an inch, MM (PROP:MM) specifies millimeters, and POINTS (PROP:POINTS) specifies points (there are seventy-two points per inch, both vertically and horizontally).

If all these attributes are omitted, the measurements default to dialog units. Dialog units are defined as one-quarter the average character width by one-eighth the average character height. The size of a dialog unit is dependent upon the size of the default font for the report. This measurement is based on the font specified in the FONT attribute of the REPORT, or the system default font specified by Windows.
