I wanted to create an app which makes visible one forms or the other according to the switch position. Some forms are always visible, but changing their positions
But I've met a problem: my app in the AppDesigner editor looks like this:
And after running like this:
Maybe there is a way to change size of the tabs' names before running? I tried to change window's size, but in this case I got an unexpected behavior of dropdown, that have to change position.
Both 3 of dropdowns should change their position (I change property ".Position" in a switch callback)
But 2 of them don't
But when I use breakpoints or toggle switch twice they do change position:
Hope you are not afraid of cyrillic

I'm sorry - I tried to make a question with clearer heading, but Mario Malic commented this post before I posted the other, so I couldn't delete this one.
I use R2020a

I have included the grid layout in the attached example showing the grid layout for Panel. You'll get a warning in the command window, because changing the position property of a component is a little bit different when you use grid layouts, which I have never did before. You can figure out how to do it on your own and I have no doubt that you'll succeed!
Without GridLayout, if you take a look at Switch position
Y coordinate is inconsistent which may be a bit problematic, so, using grid layout in general is better, thus you'll have less issues when dealing with different resolutions when your app is ran on different monitors.
