Positioning elements in a control array.
Posted on 1998-06-16
I'm writing a routine that dynamically adds check boxes onto a form based on the contents of a database; the routine that loads the controls and positions them down the form works fine but i'm having the following problem.
As I create the controls and move them down the form I need to resize the Frame3D control that holds them, move a group of buttons below the frame and also resize the form. I've tried writing code to do this but i'm having a few problems with the co-ordinate system in VB.
I'm placed the buttons that need moving into a picturebox that now acts as the container, thus I only have to move the picturebox and not all the individual buttons. However, if I resize the frame, form and move the picturebox by the appropriate amount i'm left with either big gaps or the newly created items are chopped off - why is this? Is there some kind of weird scaling issue that i'm not aware of??
