Hi all,

I am trying to create a frame based on another frame I have define. the problem I have is that the new frame always get defined with a width of 443 irrespective what the parent frame width is. I have a groupbox (Align = slNone) but Anchors = [akLeft, akRight, akBottom, akTop] which gets defined as a border to the frame.

The problem is that the groupbox still keep it's settings, thus starting off with the width equivalent to the original width (way more than 443!) and by resizing the new frame to the correct width increases it's width in relation.

This looks like a bug to me, anywhere or way I can fix this to not happen again?

Regards,
Js

usual i had a similar problem (what was a point, too, that i dislike frames)

leave the tframe-align by alnone (looks ugly at designtime)

in the form/component where you have the frame embedded
change at runtime in the onCreate-event the align of the TFrame to alClient

Hi Meikl,

Thanx for the info. I'll mark it as accepted, although I was hpoing more for something like an update, patch or service pack that was released to solve this. I think this has been coming on for quite a while.
