Irritating Delphi IDE problem
Posted on 2002-04-17
Okay got this frame (the new unit and frame) wich will be Bigger than my screensize but that what the user is seeing trhough the "framebox" (scrollbox or whatever it's called) is just a part of a form)
What i'm making is just large scrollable frame inside a form something like u get while browsing the net using IE and being able to scrolldown anyway
everything works fine except for one thing Delphi doesn't seem to add a scrollbar to be albe to scroll down the frame and edit it (design time)
doesn't the ide have a solution for this cause i see this as a BIG FAT BUG i never would have thought i'd dislike something about delphi and this is where VB was right with putting forms etc in side a window at least u can scroll there
but anyway how can i be able to test the parts of the frame that are outside the screen ? i also managed to get a scrollbar ones but i wasn't able to click on it (if i clicked it my mouse would move near the scrollbar) and scrolbar didn't move
this is very irritating and i can't view the frame as text since it gives me an error !
if i set the scrollbox vertical scrollbar position i can see the part of the frame that's outside the screen height and are able to move the components around BUT i can't rename them (and i have to)
I hope there's way to be able to edit / add controls on a frame that's bigger then my screen height !
If you don't know what i mean please tell me i'll make some screenshots then u know what i mean then !!
seems like noone knows so this is really a flaw in the IDE :(
please help tnx
