Scrollbar with Allign Top.

Hi,
I was surprised to know the fact that if u have a scrollbox, form or any other container, and u add new panels to it with all altop allignment, no scrollbar appears no matter if the height of all the newly added panels increases the height of the container. can anyone tell me y is it so and how can i get a scrollbar in the above mentioned case.

just drop a tlabel in the lower right corner
adjust the left and top-property there to expand the nonvisible clientarea
before dropping your panels

I can resize the container at run time and there are many panels, in that container which can also resize themselves while running

if you do use the align altop, then a verticalscrollbar appears,
if the viewable area isn't high enough

ya i know in case of alclient, but i am talking about alTop alignment. Vertical scrollbar is not appearing although the visble client area of the container is smaller than the total height of all the panles. last panel is shown cut(height wise).

You have pended this for deletion, but as I stated in all the others you've tried deleting, Moderator assistance is required once comments have been added.

The solution posted above should be accepted, since it was tested and works.
