displayVerticalDrawingGridEvery (Distance between Vertical Gridlines)
This element specifies the number of vertical grid units defined using the drawingGridVerticalSpacing element (§22.214.171.124) which shall be allowed between subsequent vertical gridlines in this document, if gridlines are being shown. [Note: The display of gridlines is an application-level setting not specified in /IEC 29500. end note] The drawing grid is a grid which can be used by applications to help position floating objects in the document.
If this element is omitted, then vertical gridlines shall not be displayed.
[Example: Consider the image below illustrating a WordprocessingML document in which all vertical grid units are visible (the default setting):
If the vertical drawing gridlines in this document must only be displayed for every 4th gridline, that requirement would be specified using the following WordprocessingML in the document settings:
<w:displayVerticalDrawingGridEvery w:val="4" />
The resulting grid would look like the following:
The displayVerticalDrawingGridEvery element has its val attribute equal to 4, therefore every fourth vertical gridline is displayed in the document when the drawing grid is turned on. end example]
val (Decimal Number Value)
Specifies that the contents of this attribute contains a decimal number.
The contents of this decimal number are interpreted based on the context of the parent XML element.
[Example: Consider the following numeric WordprocessingML property of simple type ST_DecimalNumber:
<… w:val="1512645511" />
The value of the val attribute is a decimal number whose value must be interpreted in the context of the parent element. end example]
The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_DecimalNumber simple type (§17.18.10).
[Note: The W3C XML Schema definition of this element’s content model (CT_DecimalNumber) is located in §A.1. end note]
