In this section:
This format code takes two integer arguments and positions the next control at the given (x, y) point. The units are the same as those used in the %gd (Grid) format code described below. This format code is not recommended for general use. The following points should be noted if %ap (Absolute Position) is used:
· Try to place all the absolute positioned objects at the end of a format, or follow a %ap format with a %ff (Form Feed) to enable the automatic control placement mechanism to recover.
· It is possible to place controls on top of each other using this format. This is usually undesirable unless all but one of the overlapping controls are given the 'hidden' attribute.
