Textbox Length

I need to set TextBox length based on the text length in the TextBox, so the
entire text in the box is visible. Can anyone point me to an info on how to
accomplish this?

Thank You
Peter

Peter, try something like this:

using (Graphics g = textBox1.CreateGraphics())
{
SizeF s = g.MeasureString(textBox1.Text, textBox1.Font);
textBox1.Size = new Size((int) s.Width, (int) s.Height);
}

Hope it helps,
Thi
