Matthew,

<< I showed my current work to the customer and they asked if the whizzing is supposed to happen. This is the top animation that I set in the form that is then parented. The animation is needed later but it is a pity to not be able to preset it and control when it happens. Perhaps an animations active property in the TAnimations object? Or a global. >>

Animations.Top.Style:=asNone == Inactive
Animations.Top.Style:=as* == Active

The TControl BeginUpdate/EndUpdate methods allow you to control when the actual animations occur *after* they are set to something other than asNone.

So if I have some items on a panel, and want to move them around, the
BeginUpdate stops anything moving until they are all ready and
EndUpdate makes that happen.

I will email you a link that shows that I am talking about. I can't
make it public unfortunately, at this point.

The key is that I want to make things all nice and smooth.

Email sent.
