    Resizing Program Window

    This may be a stupid question, however I would like to know...

    Right now my program cannot resize or maximize because when doing so it will not move the buttons or objects in the window but just will make the window bigger.

    I want to know how I can do this, so when I go to resize the window, the buttons that are suppose to be on the right side,(after resizing the window), will be on the right side...

    Just to say again if not made clear.
    I want the objects in the window to either get bigger or move along so that everything will be centered after resizing the window...


    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks Jobartley515

    on the form resize event you'll have to define poisition and/or size of your controls based off the size of your controls

    for example

    Private Sub Form_Resize()
    picture1.width = me.scalewidth
    End Sub

    you want to use the scalewidth and scaleheight properties too, because thats only the area inside the form.
