Control types 100 & 101 do not respect controls groups
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The UI map control types do not respect the expected positioning rules when within a controls group (i.e. that their positions are given with respect to the position of the controls group).

Control type 101, positioned within a controls group at [0.5,0.5] for testing purposes:

Control type 100, positioned within a controls group:

The exact same config as above, but with a RscText control (type 0):

It also looks as though they are not bound to the controls group region and will simply display wherever they want to.


Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Define a new display with a controls group not positioned on [0,0]
  2. Within the controls group, add a control type 100 or 101 and position it relative to the controls group
  3. Load any mission and create the display, the control will be in an unexpected position (I believe it's using absolute coordinates)
