try either a me.refresh or a vsElasticLight1.refresh in your resize method, this should work

This is my resize function
vsElasticLight1  has no refresh method
It didn't work

Private Sub Form_Resize()
  Me.Refresh
  'vsElasticLight1.refresh
End Sub

More infroamtion about my form.

I have a tab on the form and then 3 frames each on top of the other and then the text boxes.

Thanks

ok try to make your controls visible when you resize your form:

 Private Sub Form_Resize()
    Text1.visible  = True
    Text2.visible = True
    'and so on  

 End Sub
