And another related problem:
When using the TIB_Datasource Control Generator, when
dragging and dropping the first and several fields to a
form: The first field only generates a label and the second
ignores the autolabel kind setting (left, top, etc), but
places the label to the left of the edit field, overlaying
the label for the first field. (Which happens to be the
primary key for the dataset, and matches the data type,
When selecting and dropping any further down the list the
labels are generated with the edits but still ignores the
kind setting.

Also, btw, isn't the datasource field supposed to be carried
to the form alos? I get TIB_Edits, for example, that all have
the Datasource field left empty. I have to reassigne them on
the form.
