I love the improvements, but I noticed a few things:


1. If you have a panel and place it over controls, it eats the mouse events for those controls EVEN WHEN  the panel  not visible.  I would think the controls would receive the events when they are the top-most visible control.

2. I don't see a way to set the colour of a dialog box border/header.I really like the black and white you used.  I went through the JSON file but didn't see where I could set the colour for dialog boxes.  It would be nice if there were a theme for the application, and you only set the dialog colour once.

3. When someone uses theTPagePanel and there isn't enough screen real estate, you place up a right-hand scroll left/right box, but it covers up the last TPagePanel tab and you can't click that tab.  For example

then set responsive design to a cell phone.  You can't click the last tab - Blog.

Keep up the good work.

Erick,

I'm not seeing that here at all.  If you have an example that demonstrates this, please post it or email it to me.

Are you referring to your own dialogs (descended from TDialog) or the built-in message dialogs ?  To modify the message dialog caption bar colors, you need to copy the TMessageDialog control interface into your project-specific folder and customize it there.

Yeah, I'll see if I can move that down a bit.
