Delphi: Select multiple components on panel

Tip by Delphian | 2012-09-13 at 15:21

If you would like to select several components in the Delphi IDE, you can easily draw a frame with your mouse around the components to select them.

However, this is not possible, if the components, you want to select, are located on a Panel, TabControl, PageControl, TabSheet, Scrollbox or an other component. In this case, you would move the underlying component instead.

To nevertheless select multiple components lying on a panel in common, Delphi is providing two possibilities:

  • Hold the SHIFT-key down and click on the components you want to select one after each other.
  • Hold the STRG-key. With this key pressed, you can select multiple components also by dragging a frame around them with the mouse.
