Can somebody please educate me on the Forelayer to a form. I have never come across this in other languages and the only thing that rings bells is the Canvas in Delphi. The help file on this subject is a little curt. Is there only one Forelayer? Does that mean there are two layers, Form and Forelayer? Can they be switched between? At speed? Can it be sent to back etc. If I can draw on the Form why have a Forelayer? Why was it introduced? Anything else you can tell me about it Finally, thank you.
