    I was wondering if there is any way that you can have only one side of a form change when you click different buttons. I'm trying to achieve an effect similar to that of having frames on a web page. I have several buttons that when you click them, change the controls on the form, however the form size, look, and layout remain the same. I have kind of a logo bar that takes up the entire left side of the form, and I was wondering if there is any way to keep that from reloading with every form. I've probably confused you by now, but just think of it this way, basically I want to have a program that acts like a web page that is divided into two vertical frames. The one on the left side is just a logo, and then on the right side is where all of the controls are. Thanks

    You could use Frames to achieve that. Just put one Frame on another (with controls in every Frame) and then just turn them on and off by setting their visible prop to false or true.

    I hope I didn't confuse you.
    Let me know if I did, I'll try to make it less confusing.

    No, I think I understand what you're saying, I'll give that a try and let you know. Thanks.
