== Purpose ==
{{Note|This page is now on [[https://hig.kde.org/components/formating/groupbox.html https://hig.kde.org/]]}}
A ''frame'' (also known as panel) is an unlabeled rectangular control that surrounds a set of related controls.
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 [[KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/GroupBox| 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 [[KDE_Visual_Design_Group/HIG/Splitter| splitter]] between aligned grouping controls.
===  Appearance ===
* Use a 'raised' shadow if the frame is used to convey relationship.
== Implementation ==
