• Hi,

The problem is.

When I have an Box of

Height=50

Width=50

As It grow's, Then 'text1' one must display an number that not increase(Box.width + Box.Height /4), But instead decrease depending on the box's size.

Does anyone have the brains to help me with this one?

• Max number - (Box.Width+Box.Height/4) ?

• If you don't have a maximum value, create 2 variables.

1) startvalue = (Box.width + Box.Height /4)

needs to be calculated when the box is created.

2) currentvalue = startvalue - ((Box.width + Box.Height /4) - startvalue)

needs to be calculated whenever the box increases its size. Thi is the value to be shown in the text box.

Example:

at start of layout the box is created with 50, 50

startvalue = 50 + 50 / 4 = 50 + 12.5 = 62.5

the box grows by 10 pixel in width

currentvalue = 62.5 - ((60 + 50 / 4) - 62.5) = 62.5 - (72.5 - 62.5) = 62.5 - 10 = 52.5

box grows again by 10 pixel im height

currentvalue = 62.5 - ((60 + 60 / 4) - 62.5) = 62.5 - (75 - 62.5) = 62.5 - 12.5 = 50

etc.
