Group Box Example


A group box is an object that is typically used to serve as a border for other controls whose belonging to the same group needs to be explicitly shown to the user. To create a group box, use the GroupBox class.

Group Box Example
  1. Start Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
  2. On the Start Page, click New Project (alternatively, on the main menu, you can click File -> New -> Project...)
  3. On the New Project dialog box, in the Project Types tree list, click Visual C++ Projects
  4. In the Templates list, click Managed C++ Empty Project
  5. In the Name edit box, replace the <Enter name> content with GroupBox Example
  6. In the Location combo box, accept the suggestion or type your own. If you don't have any, type C:\Programs\MSVC.NET
  7. Click OK
  8. On the main menu, click Project -> Add New Item...
  9. In the Add New Item dialog box, in the Templates list, click C++ File
  10. In the Name box, replace <Enter name> with Main and click OK
  11. Replace the contents of the empty file with the following (I have commented the whole file to indicate what each piece of code does):
    #using <mscorlib.dll>
    #using <System.dll>
    #using <System.Drawing.dll>
    #using <System.Windows.Forms.dll>
    using namespace System;
    using namespace System::Drawing;
    using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    __gc public class SimpleForm : public Form
    	GroupBox *GBox;
    	void CreateGroupBox();
    	this->Text = S"Group Box Example";
    void SimpleForm::CreateGroupBox()
    	GBox = new GroupBox;
    	GBox->Location = Point(16, 12);
    	GBox->Text = S"Team Participation";
    	GBox->Size = Drawing::Size(220, 120);
    int __stdcall WinMain()
    	SimpleForm *FM = new SimpleForm;
    	return 0;
  12. Test the application.
