	window.Add(text.LeftPos(4, 100).TopPos(4, 20)); // Without Z suffix

}



That seems to work OK.

I filed a bug as each time the package is opened up it adds the 'Z's back in.

I filed a bug as each time the package is opened up it adds the 'Z's back in.

I think, this is not a bug. This is how it works by default - layout zooming:
Logical positions

Another issue that is related to positions is layout zooming. The problem here is that application can use font of different size or type than standard one used in layout designer when designing layout. That is why layout logical position need to be zoomed. Zoom factor is determined by ratio of text "OK Cancel Exit Retry" in runtime standard font size to Size(99, 13) - size of this text using standard font.

Zooming layout positions is done using placement methods with Z suffix (like LeftPosZ etc...).

Therefore, if you want to use layouts from layout designer, you have about two methods (for your specialized case):
1. Ctrl::NoLayoutZoom();
2. SetStdFont(Font font), where font must be the same (even DPI settings (for screen shots)) on different platforms to achieve the same sizes of layout widgets.

If you want to use placement methods without Z suffix, you could use them manually (as I already said):
Toggle Spoiler

In conclusion, what you wanted is feature, which is not implemented. This feature, like "the possibility to use zoomed and not zoomed versions of placement inside the same layout", might have own consequences.

Edit:
The feature added to Redmine: "Ide (LayDes): Zoomable and not zoomable layout items".

Thanks Sender Ghost.

I copied Toggle Spoiler and will and go through that.

It was just so many wasted hours until I found the file was being changed. Now I know what it is I can deal with it.

There are many thing in Upp I am not familiar with.
Doing much of my changes away from an internet connection is also a problem.

Thanks!

Thanks Sender Ghost for the code as the first time you mentioned this I was lost.

This question is not concerning size but whether the text in a label can be changed. Label 11 is originally " Point 1" with:
	l1.SetLabel(t_(" Point 1")).SetFont(StdFont(11));


Could the text be changed to " Something" in an if block with:
	l1.SetLabel(t_(" Something")).SetFont(StdFont(11));

without changing the Label to EditField?

	Label units, l1, l2, l3, l4, l5;

	Add(l1.LeftPos(0, 44).VSizePos(0, 67));
	l1.SetLabel(t_(" Point 1")).SetFont(StdFont(11));
	Add(l2.LeftPos(0, 44).TopPos(16, 16));
	l2.SetLabel(t_(" Point 2")).SetFont(StdFont(11));

You already wrote the code to do this:
bool check = true;

Label l1;
l1.SetFont(StdFont(11));
// l1.SetLabel(t_(check ? " Point 1" : " Something"));
// or as external function, void ChangeLabel(bool check = true):
if (check)
	l1.SetLabel(t_(" Point 1"));
else
	l1.SetLabel(t_(" Something"));

Thanks Sender Ghost

Got it to work. Using the Labels as set up within the dlg.lay:
	ITEM(Label, dv___6, SetLabel(t_(" Point 1")).SetFont(StdFontZ(11)).LeftPosZ(0, 44).VSizePosZ(0, 67))

Then in the Upp app:
    	dv___6.SetLabel(t_(" Something");


In Win I have not had to switch to doing the GUI setup directly with:
	Label l1, l2, l3, l4, l5;


It's good to know the Labels text can be changed and with both designations of the Labels.

The link you had to the 'U++ framework' or API can that be downloaded or is there plans to have it so it can be downloaded for offline use?

Actually, possible to access the same topics from U++ TheIDE:
1. Assist -> Help Topics (or F1) menu bar.
2. Used packages -> CtrlLib -> Reference -> Static widgets (or just use "SetLabel" text for Search).

Also there is uppbox/uppweb package to generate html documentation.

Sorry for offtopic.
