Frame control that is not a container
Posted on 2006-03-20
Using VB6, it is possible to have a frame control that doesn't act as a container?
The client likes frames (and I generally do) but I don't like difficultly of selecting the controls contained in a frame whenever I need to rearrange or work with the controls. Not being able to group select the controls within a frame by using the mouse is my major concern. I can deal with keeping the frame and the controls together manually.
I don't have a problem with using a third party custom control.
An API call to change the behaviour of the standard frame control would be nice.
I don't want to use the line control and label control to emulate a frame.
