X and Y Coordinates will not change

I have a form with multiple cards. After turning off the column snap I tried to change the position of the various cards. Some work as expected. Certain cards when I enter a different X or Y value the border around the input box turns black and the value doesn't change. It shows the number you input, but if you deselect and re-select the item the value hasn't changed. No matter what order I try to change the positions, I can't get certain cards in the position I need them in. Only some of the cards have the values that will not change - others change as expected.

I have tried changing the car positions in various orders, but I still can't get them into the desired positions.

Hi @BrianS ,

 

Do you want to set the : X and Y Coordinates in your form?

Could you please check whether the Autoheight property of your controls are set to true?

If so,please change that to false and try it again.

I think this reply  of  seadude    about this case  could supply some information for you:

The Autoheight did not fix the problem - it was the card not the text label that was not mving to the correct place. The problem appears to have been casued from cards that were set to Visible False and having simmilar settings.

I had created a "Tabbed" form so many f the cards were hidden on any given "tab."

I went back to the innitial "tab" and began setting everything from there. This still seems like an area that needs some development work.
