sizegrip on a control

Windows forms come with a resize sizegrip at the bottom right of a form, for
dynamic resizing. I am trying to do the same thing with any control, say a
listbox or a datagrid.

Is there a way to attach something like this, that has the functionality I'm
looking for? I don't want a generic resizer control that simply allows the
controls on a form to resize automatically with the form resize, unless it
also provides for individual control dynamic resizing.

Thanks for any help.

I find this a hell to do, so it is not in my sample, however you would be
able to calculate the portion where you want to have the resize grip, and
than set another cursor in my opinion.

However in my opinion a lot of work, and the most bad thing is, it is not

Hi Cor,

Thanks for your response; I'll play around with it a little.

I'm using Stephen Lebans' RTF2 control in a report, and have discovered what may be a slight bug in it. I have a lot of non-Western language (Chinese) text in my RTF field, and such records get sized strangely using the .RTFHeight property of the control. Specifically, lines of text get cut off the bottom of the control when I use the code provided in the sample report on the lebans.com site. It seems that when there is Chinese text,...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
