Incredible Shrinking/Growing Controls

P: n/a
I have just tried form inheritance for the first time and
I am having trouble with the controls shrinking each I
build the project on my home computer and growing each
time I build on my work computer.

I had found that the AutoScaleBaseSize setting was
inconsistent on some of the inherited forms and changing
that stabilized the forms at home. But at work all the
control widths are growing 28% on each build and all the
control heights are growing 24%. The same thing is
happening with the location.

Is it possible to work with a project on two different
computers with two different screen resolutions or could
my problem be something else?

Thanks,

Keith

You can try to set the form's 'AutoScale' property to 'False' (untested).
