Group Container control

The Group Container allows us to build a certain set of controls inside a same group container, for functional and / or decorative purposes. We can group different kinds of controls (textboxes, combos, calendars, etc.) inside this container, and we also can validate all these inner elements as a whole or toggle its visibility through the container properties.

How to create a Group Container in a Form

The way to add a new group container would be through the add control / Group Container options.

Once we added the group container to the form, we will proceed to place our inner controls inside it. We have to position into our control and add the desired elements right-clicking on it

The properties for the Group Container control are:

Visible: controls if the control is visible to the user. This can be adjusted on runtime to improve performance or include new application functionalities.

Height: Optional property. Handles the height of the Group Container (in pixels). Useful in cases in which there are various group containers, aligned horizontally, with different content, and we want them to have the same height for layout purposes (image below).

Figure 6. Two aligned group containers, the first one does not have the height property set.

Figure 7. “Height” property set in the first group container, to match the same height of the second group container
