ADH 2002 FormResize

P: n/a
Is there any updates to this code since the book?

Everything's working OK except for one particular form, it is big, 3
pages with a table control on each but it's not the only 3 page form in
the db.

All forms were originally designed at 640x480, this one form, if I have
Access at 800x600 or less (or just main window sized to that size) it
resizes as though it was trying to stretch to 1024x768 so not all
controls are visible on the form (only 3/4 of the form is visible). At
1024 and above it resizes fine (until you get to 1280x1024 where we
reach the limit of Access' form height).

Anyone come across this or know of a fix?

Neither worked, actually turning off auto_resize broke it at 1024 and
above. I've got a workaround for now, if it's that form and Access
window is < 950 wide it will use the old resizing code that I've hacked
since the Access 2.0 ADH :-)
