Maximize a control when a form is maximized?


Is it possible to make a control bigger or maximize it also when the
user maximizes the form? I have a calendar control on a form and I
would like to automatically make it bigger when the form is maximized
so the user can see more detail.

I see there is only a height property for a form and no width
propertly. The calendar control on the form has both.

Any ideas?

Detail section has the Height property. Form itself has the Width property.

You can set your controls's height and width in the forms OnResize event:

Private Sub Form_Resize()

Const TPI As Long = 1440 'number of TWIPS per INCH.
Me.lboID.Height = 2 * TPI 'set height to 2 inches
Me.lboID.Width = 2 * TPI 'set width to 2 inches

End Sub
