Fix object is not visible in Delphi’s Live Bindings Designer

I recently hit a problem where an object on a form was not visible in Delphi’s Live Bindings Designer.  Ill show you how I fixed that


This is easy to fix.  Simply select the object in the IDE, then change this property to TRUE.

LiveBindings Designer … Visible Element = TRUE


It was set to FALSE by default for the TLayer3D that I was working with.  I don’t know why its set to FALSE for TLayer3D when it is TRUE for most other components.

Its a matter of personal opinion as to whether TRUE or FALSE one makes more sense as the default.  For me … Ill put my hand up for TRUE.

Happy coding !
