resizing controls (webbrowser control)

I put 4 webbrower controls on a winform. I can set the initial position of
the controls during design time. however, I need to be able to allow isers
to resize the windows (maximize, for example) and have the browser windows
to resize accordingly. To start with, I would like teh controls remain in
their own quadrant, 1, 2, 3, 4 respectively.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Check out the splitter and splitcontainer controls. In addition take a look
at the controls' 'Dock' and 'Anchor' properties.

This seemes to work good.

Is there a way to add a "floating" control (groupbox/menu/buttons) to the
window screen so that user can select options (for example, number of split
screens 2,4, or 8, etc...)? Ideally, the floating control can be
collapsed/hidden when not used.

Thanks again

Bill

I was able to use dock (fill) and TableLayoutPanel to split a screen into 4
quadrant.
Can I have either a floating control panel or a fixed area in the screen
(similar to statusbar) so that I can put some information/controls on the
same form? Currently, any control (such as groupbox) would overlap these
panels.

Thanks

Bill
