grouping weirdness

Hi Guys, I'm working with LC 7.0.1 Community Edition, when I group two objects together it creates a group which I can rename. The thing is when I click on the first object I would expect the whole group to be selected, but the single object is selected. I don't remember this as normal behaviour, al...

Re: Geometry not working?

Hi Sparkout, I created a brand new main stack just to try it out as was intrigued. I placed 3 data grids, 2 fields, 3 option boxes, a label and locked right and bottom of the objects. All scale exactly as I would have expected. Tried applying geometry on the datagrid in my app and it fails. My app h...

Grouped objects and border

Hey Guys, Last one for today. I've grouped multiple objects on my layout applied a scrollbar to the grouped object and positioned it 0 left and 0 top. There seems to be a 4pixel gap between the objects in my group and the edge of the card. I've turned the border off on the group, is there something ...

Re: Geometry not working?

Hi Craig Lol - both of the things I've tried to get my head around :shock: …… Your idea of set the botright of the group to the botRight of the card is something that didn't even occur to me. Was looking for the easy way out with the Geometry manager. I've got your suggestion working along with the ...

Geometry not working?

Hi Guys, I've got an unusual situation with the Geometry of an object. I've got a datagrid in my app and I want to "anchor" the bottom of the datagrid to about a cm off the bottom of the card so if the user enlarges the card, the datagrid would extend or contract depending on the depth of the card. ...

Hi Guys, I've been using this code below to enter in numeric values with a decimal. This seems to work fine, however, when there are 2 decimals in the field I want to continue to allow the entry of these valid characters if the cursor is before the decimal place with two digits. I therefore need to ...
