    Overlapping Controls


    I am creating a view with multiple controls namely CEikLabel & CEikEdwin. What is the best way to place CEikEdwin to overlap with other controls say labels?

    I have simply passed overlapping cordinates but it seems to work. However if a label has SetExtent set, it does not work.

    Re: Overlapping Controls

    you should not overlap any controls in your container, it is bad thing, and you can end up having funny efects, though, the drawing should indeed be done in the order you give the controls out, but I'm sure it would not be too hard to desing the container in a way that all could have their own area in it.
