I decided to upgrade to .NET 1.1 SP1. Then I ran one of my .NET winforms applications which has nested groupbox controls on a winform and FlatStyle set to System so they will be XP themed.
Then I saw that the nested groupbox controls had their captions in bold arial font and this made the caption to be too big and the text wasn't readable. See this screenshot:
As you can see: a butt-ugly caption which is also crippled. This is an existing app, so I didn't do anything. It worked perfectly on .NET 1.1.
What to do? How can this be solved? I googled on this but all I find are some people having the same problem. Needless to say, I'm really pissed off by this. I hope there is an easy fix for this.
Update: It seems that when you add a panel and dock the groupbox inside the panel it works.So I now have to replace all nested group boxes with panels and dock the groupboxes inside these panels.
So Microsoft, how about FIXING this stupid bug A.S.A.P. ?
