Hello community

I have a problem with positioning a window containing a tab inside a mdidockhelp!

My case:
1) I have a frame of type 'mdidockhelp!' with a menu that has the toolbars enabled with visible icons.
2) I have a window of type 'main!' with a menu that has the toolbars enabled with visible icons. The window has a tab_1.
3) I open the window with the command "opensheetwithparmasdocument (w_test_sheet10," ", w_test_frame," ")"

In my test, I used the 'PB template application' and I put a tab_1 in windows.
In the resize event, I placed the tab_1 at 0.0, (code: tab_1.y =0 ; tab_1.x =0 )

At open The system iwrongs . 

Specifically, x and y have value 0, but it creates a border at the top between tab_1 and window.


Do you have any solutions? I'm waiting for the sun!

thank you


​p.s: I do not know how to attach the screenshot or example

The easiest work-around is to manually specify the X and Y positions of the window in the POST-OPEN event of the window.
You and assign a fixed position, or calculate an offset from the edge of the screen, or you can calculate the coordinates required to center your window.

Thanks OLAN, very useful.

someone have idea if they put a patch on this issue? I find it difficult to pass all of my ERPs to reposition all the tabs.
