A frame is a way to show relationships visually; it provides no additional functionality. Example Guidelines Is this the right control Use a frame to arrange related controls that cannot be labeled. But always consider to use a labeled group box. Do not group single controls. Consider to communicate relationship by layout only. Behavior Do not nest grouping elements; use layout to show relationships within a group. Do not disable groups. To indicate that a group of controls doesn't currently apply, disable all the controls within the group, but not the group itself. Put a splitter between aligned grouping controls. Appearance Use a 'raised' shadow if the frame is used to convey relationship.
