Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the boundingRect property to control how a group responds when you move one of the group's controls to the edge of the group.

Value:

The boundingRect of a group consists of four integers separated by commas.

By default, the boundingRect property of a group is set to empty.

Comments:

If a group's boundingRect is empty and its lockLocation is false, when you drag an object toward the boundary of the group, the group automatically expands, resizing itself to fit. If the lockLocation is true, the object is clipped to the group's rectangle.

If a group's boundingRect is not empty and its lockLocation is false, when you drag an object toward the boundary of the group, the group does not automatically resize to fit its objects. Instead, the object is clipped at the boundingRect. (In group-editing mode, the entire control is shown, but when you exit group-editing mode, controls outside the boundingRect are clipped.)

If the group is a scrolling group, dragging an object in it automatically scrolls the group. When you drag beyond the scrollable area, the object is clipped.
