Specfies whether the rectangle of the group or the union of the rectangles of the child controls of the group governs the groups displayed rectangle.Syntax:

set the clipsToRect of <group> to {true | false}


set the clipsToRect of group "ScrollingList" to true

Use the clipsToRect property to make a group rectangle property clip the objects within the group and prevent resizing of the group when its child objects are moved or resized. The behavior of the group when clipsToRect is true mirrors the behavior of a group with the lockLocation property true with the exception that the selection handles can be freely moved. By default, the clipsToRect property of a newly created group is set to false.
