Cannot find Label control

Post by TickTick » 19 Feb 2009, 14:10

Hello!
Am I just too stupid to find the label control or is there really none?

Dear Timo,

would you include a label for 100 €? I know you have very, very little time, and 100 € is not much, but that is all that I could give you right now (and only at the middle of the month or so). I think that many people need it very much as well.

Regards,
Hans

If I do this, it will be a control without any extras. No OLE drag'n'drop, no exotic features, no help files, no testing.

A friend of mine who is also a big fan of your controls had money in his PP account, and he sent you the money right away.
Thank you so very much.

Okay, I'll do it. If no serious problems arise, it should be ready within a week or less.

Oh, that is so very cool! The missing label is the only reason (okay, beside the ComboBox, which is very important as well) why I did not completely equip my app with your controls. I cannot wait to see everything without the question marks!!
And if you could take a look at the speed/ redraw issue... oh my god, that would be heaven on earth for me!

How important is something like the AutoSize property to you?

Hmmmm, I don't know yet. Is it much work?
I cannot really say how important it is because I don't know how your control will behave regarding overlapping and so.

I thought about it, and I think that AutoSize (and WordWrap as well) are indeed important to me.

Here's a first version. AutoSize will come later. I have to think about how to do it.

Amazing!!
What is the problem with the AutoSize. As I know you it isn't simply the fact that you cannot determine how much space the text needs, is it? I tried a label myself, and that was 1 thing that I didn't have problems with.

I wanted to say "What is the problem with AutoSize, please?"
I was too excited about this great control, you really did that nicely!!! Thank you so much!

Bug report:
When I place the label on a frame, and I click anywhere on the frame (not on the Label), the label becomes invisible.
Also, when I copy a label control by Ctrl+C and then paste it, it becomes invisible as well after a few milliseconds of being visible. When I drag it around, it becomes visible again and stays visible.
