How to rotate an object and respect the Align to Client property in firemonkey


I am going to use a Switch to make the point more obvious. This applies to any component.

Say you have a Layout in a form (Layout1) and you drop a switch (switch1) in layout1. Set the property of the switch like this


By default, switch1 occupies the full space of Layout1. Now, execute the following code:


This will rotate the switch but the actual component doesn’t change dimensions. FMX rotates the visual part only. This means that the Client alignment is not respected visually.

I tried to adjust the dimensions of the switch but need to turn the Client alignment off.


Anyway, this code doesn’t work either as it doesn’t follow any changes due to form resize.

So, my question is how do I make a component respect the Align property when rotated?

Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.
