A TGroupBox tgroupbox.png is a container that allows a number of objects to be grouped physically and conceptually on a form.

Usage

To use a TGroupBox on a form, you can simply select it on the Standard tab of the Component Palette and place it by clicking on the form.

Small example

  • create a new application and place two TGroupBoxes on your form
  • in GroupBox1 insert a TButton Button1 and in GroupBox2 TButton Button2
  • put on your form (outside of the groupboxes) two TRadioButton
  • change in the object Inspector the caption of RadioButton1 to User and of RadioButton2 to Administrator
  • change the property Checked of RadioButton2 to True
  • create the OnChange event handler of RadioButton1 by double clicking RadioButton1
  • use this handler also for RadioButton2
    • choose in the object Inspector RadioButton2'
    • now select the tab Events in the object Inspector
    • go to the event OnChange and select in the adjacent combobox RadioButton1Change
  • make GroupBox2 for user invisible by choosing in the RadioButton
    • write following line in the event handler of the RadioButtons in the source editor:
procedure TForm1.RadioButton1Change(Sender: TObject);
begin
  GroupBox2.Visible:=Radiobutton2.Checked;
end;
  • add still the event handler of the buttons and add some code like:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage('Users and administrators can click this button');
end;
 
procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ShowMessage('Only administrators can click this button');
end;
  • start your program, it could look like:
