I'm a Delphi programmer starting using VB6 for a new project! I am searching the panel object like in Delphi. I want to separate the form in different parts and be able to set the alignment of them. One panel must be align to the top of the form, the other to the rest of the client area.

How can I do this in VB???

I think you can use a PictureBox control with the Align property set to Top and draw your controls onto that PictureBox... then just use the rest of the form for the rest of your controls.

By panels, you will mean container. There are several container under VB :
   * The Frame
   * The Tabs
   * Panels (with the Threed32.ocx)
   * The PictureBox

For me, the one you need to use is the frame.

Choose New Project and select VB Wizard as template. Now choose explorer style application. This shows you how to do it.
Another solution is to use a picturebox. A picturebox can contain other controls again just like a frame.
