Q: changing control order within a component?

Is there a way at design time to change the order of controls within a
component?  I notice that when I access component.controls[x], I get the
controls in the same order I created them.  I'd like to make a particular
control appear first, but I wasn't clever enough to do it when I first built my

I've tried doing a cut and paste in the form's .dfm file, but the change didn't
stick.  Is there some other place that this ordering is kept?  Can I change it?

I realize I could probably adjust this at runtime, but I'd rather get things in
their proper places at design time.
