Here is a simple piece of code to enable you to drag your buttons to the position on the screen when designing your project.

Just replace the variable 'ButtonID' with your button ID ( or change the code to go through a loop etc. ) and put the code inside your main loop.

You will have to change the effect of clicking on the buttons within your code so it doesn't keep on activating a command etc.

It is best to use this code at the beginning, before you have linked your buttons to any events etc.

I know the Studio version has this built in, but I have had a few problems with the button arrangement and this is short, simply and cleaner in my view

Just click on a button with the left mouse button and drag to where you want your button on your screen and make a note of the positions of the button on the screen to put into your code.

I would like to add that this could be easily adapted to position other elements such as sprites, edit boxes, text positions etc.

You could also save the positions to a csv file to be read in to your project and align all your elements and make it easier when designing.
