Hi all,

I am writing an application for windows. I use Group boxes but some of them are different in the IDE as during runtime while some are the same. I checked the settings and they are the same (unless I've overlooked something). Any ideas what can be the reason?

I have made a screenshot but don't know how to attach it ...

Thanks in advance

Best regards,

Guy

Different visually? On the same window? or on different windows?

I know on OSX there is a setting that makes GB look a bit different .... but it would be consistent for any given window.. I don't think that setting (composite) applies to WIN.

Thanks for your fast reply! It looks like the font is different. They are all in the same window. you can find the screenshot here:

I tried to grab both the runtime as the IDE view.

Thanks again,

Guy

I think parenting can cause visual anomalies in groupboxes. Watch how you're layering your controls.

You're right, that was the problem! Thank you :-)
