Specifies how the control is anchored to its parent.
property Anchors: TAnchors;
__property TAnchors Anchors;
Use Anchors to ensure that a control maintains its current position relative to an edge of its parent, even if the parent is resized. When its parent is resized, the control holds its position relative to the edges to which it is anchored.
If a control is anchored to opposite edges of its parent, the control stretches when its parent is resized. For example, if a control has its Anchors property set to [akLeft, akRight], the control stretches when the width of its parent changes.
Anchors is enforced only when the parent is resized. Thus, for example, if a control is anchored to opposite edges of a form at design time and the form is created in a maximized state, the control is not stretched because the form is not resized after the control is created.
