Setting autosize to false

In Visual Studio 2005, using Visual Basic, Is there a way to set the
autosize property [such as in a label control] to false as a standard, and
change it to true as needed?

Or does it always start out as true when a label [or other such control] is
brought in to a form?
This is probably a very basic question, but I appreciate any help anyone can

The control itself (the label in this case) controls what the value defaults

The only way I know of to change the default would be to inherit from Label,
creating a derived label that has the new default. Then using the derived
Label instead.

Something like:

Public Class Label
Inherits System.Windows. Forms.Label

Public Sub New()
AutoSize = False
End Sub

<System.Compone ntModel.Default Value(False)> _
Public Overrides Property AutoSize() As Boolean
Return MyBase.AutoSize
End Get
Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
MyBase.AutoSize = value
End Set
End Property

End Class

The System.Componen tModel.DefaultV alueAttribute above, is suppose to tell
the forms designer that the property defaults to False and not True, so the
generated code doesn't include the value...

Unfortunately it appears that the above doesn't want to work in VS 2005
(.NET 2.0), I'll need to try it in VS 2003 this evening, as I'm sure I used
the above in VS 2002 & VS 2003 (.NET 1.x)

Hope this helps

In VB.Net 2003 and previous versions new labels were created with AutoSize=False. In VB.Net 2005, new labels are created with AutoSize=True. Why was it changed? Is there somewhere in VB.Net 2005 where this defalut can be changed back to Autosize=False. I am not interested in creating my own custom class to fix the problem.

I have a panel set to autosize. Inside it I have a custom label, which changes the height (using measure string) based on the length of the string. (i.e. the label autosizes vertically) this label is anchored top, left and right. The panel is docked to the top. When form the panel is on is resized by width, the text will resize if it's needed, which will cause the panel to autosize verically, since it's set to autosize.

Hi, I'm trying to change the default height of Textboxes in a form of my Mobile Application, without resorting to making them MultiLine, which turns off the Passwordchar substitution).
