1. I want to move controls from one panel to another. Can I just do a drag and drop?

2. I am not able to move one of the controls downwards by dragging it. I went to the properties and saw that it's locked property is set to false (setting it to true didn't make any difference). Location is 0,0 (even though it is not in the center or any corner of the form). Maximum size and minimum size properties all show 0,0; but size is shown as 129, 36. Just above that attached to it is treeview control, and the control below is getting all its data from it.

3. If these two controls are inside a very little panel, is there a way to find it. I don't think they are inside a panel, but I'm just asking if there is a way to find it if it is tiny and present.

Actually, the control (let's call it button1) is in a container. Its location property is 0,0.
Location is described as: "The coordinates of upper-left corner of the control relative to the upper left corner of it's container".

So it is in a container, but I am unable to find the container using my mouse. Can anyone help me with that?

devexpress crap is weird on panels -- try docking it in designer and then you should be able to drag -- or highlight and then use the arrow keys.

you should be able to lasso after docking and select all controls in the panel -- assuming they are not outside the bounds. other than that you can select them by selecting them in the properties drop down in designer. after you select them there they are automatically selected on the form.

Thanks davis, I'm gonna try this out. 2 other questions remain:
Can I drag and drop controls from one panel to another?

Why do you think I cannot move the controls down? Is it because they are inside a container, and I have to move the container?

no, you should be able to  drag and drop --

are your panels docked in designer? if they aren't docked there is a lot of, lets say, instability, with the way devexpress controls work in designer.

and is it only those controls? do you have source control where you have to have the file checked out to manipulate?
