Summary0036070: AutoSize property of TGroupBox does not work for TLabeledEdit
Description- create at GroupBox
- create a new TLabeledEdit inside the GroupBox
- now enable the GroupBox property AutoSize

result: the size of the GroupBox is too small and the label of the edit is above the GroupBox caption. So the problem is that the AutoSize does not take into account that the label needs space too.

TLabeled edit is a composite control.
It does not report it's height correctly (it simplye returns the heigt of the edit).
An approach like that of TEditButton would probably fix this.
Maybe TLabeledEdit can be rebased to inherit from TCustomAbstractGroupedEdit, but currently this only allows it "buddy" to be to the left or the right, not above or below.

So please close this report or make it an enhancement.

TLabeledEdit shouldn't be changed. (Well, a new composite control with a new name may be introduced.)

If you use separate TLabel and TEdit, the autosize works fine.

In that case this cannot be fixed AFAICS.

I can imagine that this probably could be fixed. It's a different scenario than 0036291.

In 0036291 the anchors apply only to the edit part of TLabeledEdit, whereas here both the label and edit are placed inside the same parent, so the parent's AutoSize should be able to handle them.
