Groupbox Control ?

How can I have a Checkbox that appears inside a Groupbox but it should not be bound to the Groupbox, so if I set the Groupbox to Enable=False the CheckBox will still be Enabled?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Dim pt = Me.PointToClient(GroupBox1.PointToScreen(CheckBox1.Location))
CheckBox1.Parent = Me
CheckBox1.Location = pt

Open in new window

PS. For any control:
Private Sub UnBox(c As Control)
    If c.Parent Is Me Then Return
    Dim pt = Me.PointToClient(c.Parent.PointToScreen(c.Location))
    c.Parent = Me
    c.Location = pt
End Sub

Open in new window

Using: UnBox(CheckBox1).
Another option - do not disable groupbox but disable control(s) instead:
Private Sub EnableBoxControls(box As GroupBox, ParamArray enabledControls() As Control)
    For Each c As Control In GroupBox1.Controls
        c.Enabled = enabledControls.Contains(c)
End Sub

Open in new window
