    @Joost R Next, when you put the container control on a tab- or page-panel then you get things completely messed up and not refreshed.

    How about this? The IDE is on the left for comparison.
    If placing in a tab you need to set the container.parent = nil then manually manage visibility when the tabvalue changes.

    Just a quick look.
    It's really smart work you come up with here.
    Hope some of this work can once be included in the framework.

    Mind there are some NilObjectExecptions to get fixed.

    How did you get a nilobjectexception?

    Hi Neil,

    First - this is a magnificent bit of work.

    As for the NOE, the project is missing the OnButton/OffButton images.

    Oops I missed that.
    This should work better.

    There are still some dead ends in regard to flicker. I've done a lot of fooling around and wouldn't have gotten anywhere close to this without help from @Julian S . The most notable one is after the window is resized flicker again begins until the app is restarted. Also when animating the collapse/axpand for the container that is over the tabcontrol there is flicker.

    Which is linux distro that you have tested this app? If I remember correctly, Linux has own issue on scrolling a tall container placed inside a short container.

    I tested on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

    You're right the child container scrolls off the top of it's parent and displays in the main window outside the bounds of it's parent container. I'll look into it.

    I doubt you can fix it. It's old issue, similar to this one . I've invested a lot of time to fix scrolling issue and come with a really hard coding solution. A solution that required to coding the solution from scratch for every projects.

    @Neil B - congratulations - this is a GREAT peace of work.
    (To be onnest: on my Windows 10 i like it most with animation switched off.)

    Actually I hate the animation on windows. It's still to 'choppy'.
