GUICreateGroup and GUICtrlCreateGroup

4 posts in this topic

This may or may not be easy to accomplish but I think it is.

AutoIt has

GUICreateGroup()

and

GUICtrlCreateGroup(****)

In Delphi and (I think others) the GUICtrlCreateGroup() would more accurately be described as GUICtrlCreateFrame() and the functionality remains the same. Any controls placed within the Frame are treated as a group.

This doesn't really have any effect on me, because I seldom use frames anyway, but it may be a bit easier for new users.

Just another thought that I am always forgetting to mention here.

From what I've seen from a distance, Delphi takes standard Windows controls and renames them to the point that non-Delphi users (Read, people who use C/C++ like myself) don't even recognize them by name anymore. The name "Group" is consistent with what Microsoft call the control. I don't think that should be changed.

It was just a thought. I didn't know what it was for C/C++/C#. If that's what works then it's wise to stay with it.

Moreover, some controls are even not have underlying API controls, but emulate them. Group and Frame are such controls.
