Bring to Front etc

Post by drees » Thu Dec 08, 2016 3:50 am

How do I ensure any object is in the front. While 'move to front' etc is in the tools menu it is never highlighted, making it very difficult to create the interface design I'm after i.e. somethings are behind others, when I want them in front.

Thanks

David

Those bring to front/back etc commands are for drawing objects (lines, rectangles, round rectangle and ellipse).

The drawing order of all other controls "should" be ok. The background is drawn drawn first, followed by group boxes, then frames, tab controls and then all other controls. This should leave the correct "thing" visible and ensure that an images does not cover up a button (for example).
