a Picture Box question

Anyone can tell me how to make sure
that the width of a picture box would
become 100 pixels width if i do use the
autosize true

because the width is like 2055 for a
100 pixel width how to convert that?

Thank you all

when I do change the ScaleWidth
the real Width does not change

Can you explain that?

You can change the "ScaleMode" property of the picturebox to Pixels instead of the default Twips" scale.

This way if you want the picture box to be 100 you can simply set the
Picture box's width to 100 instead of that 2055 you're talking about.

Borders = Width - ScaleWidth
what do you mean by Borders ?
a picture box has no Borders

Try it - with a PictureBox with BorderStyle set to FixedSingle

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Me.Print Picture1.Width - Picture1.ScaleWidth
End Sub

You should get 60 printed - eg: 4 pixels

Actually I was being obscure
- the ScaleWidth property is rather different from the Width property
- changing the ScaleWidth property directly changes the 'ScaleMode'
- it is like changing the ScaleMode from vbTwips to vbPixels
(like, but not exactly that - look up ScaleWidth in the Help File)

To adjust something to have a desired ScaleWidth you _must_ attack it
through the Width property
- hence

Borders = Width - ScaleWidth
or
Width = Borders + ScaleWidth

Obviously the ScaleMode must be the same ...
