Delphi: AutoSize property resizes a container (panel, scrollbox, form, frame…) to grow it to fit all controls

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/26

A while back I needed a design-time way to automatically resize a Delphi container control (descendants from the, [WayBackTWinControl Class like [WayBack] TPanel, [WayBack] TScrollbox, [WayBack] TForm, [WayBack] TFrame) to grow/shrink so it just fits around it’s contained controls.

Back then I needed it for VCL design time, if possible taking into account non-visual components.

The [WayBackTControl.AutoSize Property does just that for visual controls and works way better than suggestions on doing this manually.

Manually adjusting many controls at design time is a tedious job, especially when trying to prevent mouse usage (I’ve had RSI in the early 1990s, so I’m extra careful).

Thanks Uwe Raabe for helping me out on this.

I’ve not had the need for non-visual components or FMX yet, but if I ever need it, then this piece of code by Stefan Glienke might work:

Back then it was convoluted to get going. Hopefully by now that has changed.

TED Talks on Twitter: “The real reason female entrepreneurs get less funding: @KanzeDana… they get asked different questions than male ones”

Gender gap in startup funding: Dana Kanze and collaborators found a surprising, consistent trend: in meetings with funders, men and women were being asked completely different types of questions.

Carmen en Matijn zijn sowieso een stel apart (:

PS: Het is al vaak door me heen gegaan. De lijm van Radio 2 zit in de nieuwslezers: de nieuwslezers hebben behalve een perfecte verbinding met de DJ’s, ook de verbinding tussen de diverse programma’s. Dat zorgt voor een totaal-sfeer over de dag heen wat bij andere zenders goeddeels ontbreekt. Wat inmiddels ook helpt is dat diverse DJ’s aan het einde de DJ van het volgende programma live in de uitzending hebben, maar de nieuwslezers vormen nog steeds de basis.
