The box is not a "container", like a tab or an option group.

I think you could probably use a tab control, but the items in the tab, then set the visible property of the tab control or tab page as appropriate.  Delete all but one of the tabs from the control, then change the tab controls style to "None" so that no tab is displayed.  You can also set the background style of the tab control to transparent, if you need to.

You will be able to set the tab control or the pages Visible to property to True or False, but only if the control with the focus is outside the tab.

The box is not a container.  The only control that sort of acts like a container in some instances is the tab control.  The only control that really is a container is the subform control.

Yes!
Group the Box and other controls.
