Group Option & Panel ?

I put a group option box on my form in order to have a box around some controls. But what happened is that the controls around which the box is drawn is now glued to this box.
How can I remove the box from the screen w/o removing the control?
How can I put a panel or group option frame around controls without it gluing itself to the controls?

Check the container property.
Also you might draw lines around your controls instead of using the groupbox

You can also use a panel with the borderstyle = fixedsingle to make a lined box around your controls.

I don't find a Container property. Also I don't see any line drawing control.

There are no line controls. You can use either label or textbox making them small vertically or horizontally
