I have a datawindow with three columns that contain variable amounts of text. I want to position them vertically one above another. I also want the control to grow as needed based on the amount of text it has, so I'm using Autosize Height = true. 

Unfortunately, this does not seem to automatically push down the starting positions of the controls underneath it, so when there is a lot of text the text ends up on top of each other. 

Is there a technique I can use to get what I want? Text auto growing as needed, and pushing down the controls underneath?


Powerbuilder 2021 build 1509.

Windows 10 Enterprise.

Hi Troy

If I understood your question correctly, setting the Slide Up property in the controls below the autosized ones to "All above" or "Directly Above" should do the trick.

Thanks! I swear I tried that already, but I did it again just now and it is working the way I want it to.
