When resizing a file listbox or a directory list box, the size you input is not the size you get.  It seems to round the number up or down to the nearest 225 twips or so.  Is there any way around this?  I'm using vb4-32.

No, no workaround.
Still in VB5 & 6 same issue.

I guess it is because of the files... so you do not get one that is halfy displayed.


Happy programming.

Umm, there is (on some controls an .IntegeralHeight property that forces the size to be a multiple of the current font's height. Dunno about this specificially on a file listbox, but if you set it False you get much finer control over the sizing.

Okay then...if there is no real fix, are there any ocx's that don't have this glaring flaw.  If not,what I'm triing to get accomplished is to use a frame, narrowed down to a bar, and have my file/dir list box resize according to the relative position of the frame. Since the two boxes will resize and then change their minds and then resize, I end up with a flicker.  Any ideas on a work around for this problem?

Turn .Visible to False while you resize up & down. Have the default value of the property be False, only switch to True when you're done tinkering with size.
