MDI Application and 'Tile' -> Delphi Bug ??

Hi Experts,

Weird problem ...
I'm having a MDI application.
I use menu-items to Tile all active ChildForms vertically or horizontally.
Before calling 'Tile' on the MDIForm I set the TileMode property to 'tbHorizontal' or 'tbVertical'.

The 'Tiling' works if there are only 2 or 3 Childs open. When I open the 4th Child and Tile them, there is no difference between horizontal or vertical Tiling.

Is this normal, or a Delphi Bug, or even worse an application bug of my app (which is abslotely impossible since I am a real expert on Delphi ;-))

Does anyone has ever had this annoying problem too, and perhaps know a workaround for this ?

Thanx in advance,

The Mayor.

i think thats a normal bahaviour
(i tested it with acrobat-reader-> no delphi app)

a workaround could be to position byself

It's the normal behaviour...

and i agree with meikl, the "simplest" workaround would be to position them by code...

get the count of them, and in a for loop decide their height, width, top and left..

Hi Meikl, Raios,

Normal behaviour ?

I suppose if you call the Tile-method, internally an API-call is made. So I blame Bill for hiring bad programmers ;-)

Since I'm a lazy developer, I refuse to code the Tile myself. I'm not responsible for the bad behaviour of Windows ! ;-)

So I'm gone leave this question open for some time. Maybe there is someone who knows another workaround.

Anyway thanx for your replies.

The Mayor.

I want to delete my question (since there is nobody who can give me a 'non-programming' workaround), but this is not an option anymore. Can anyone help me out how I can delete my question ?
