[Bug] Mutate GroupBox.Static to GroupBox gives a walkback error

[Bug] Mutate GroupBox.Static to GroupBox gives a walkback error

Post by mact » Wed, 05 Jul 2006 04:37:31


I have created a dialog box with a GroupBox.static and notice that it doesn't
draw properly (the text has a line through it). I right click and pick Mutate
View and choose GroupBox (hoping to mutate it to a GroupBox.Default without
having to redo all its contained items (in my case two radio buttons - Male
/Female).

I get a walkback:

Tim,


I can't reproduce this error at my end. Do you have any exact sequence
of events to reproduce it starting with an empty view composer?

Also, remember that the group box is simply an implementation of the
equivalent Windows static control. This doesn't have any true contents
so the radio buttons you have placed within it aren't actually children
of the group box that of the parent view.

Best Regards,
