One suggestion is that write the code in the Resize event of your form

cntrl.Top = FrmEdit.ScaleHeight - cntrl.height
cntrl.Left = FrmEdit.ScaleWidth - cntrl.width

Hope this helps

I DONT THINK YOU UNDERSTOOD

WHEN I SET ALINGABLE IN PROPERTIES OF A USERCONTROL
THIS ALLOWS ME, ONCE I HAVE PLACED THE CONTROL ON A FORM, TO ALIGN MY CONTROL EITHER TO THE LEFT, TOP, RIGHT OR BOTTOM OF MY FORM VIA THE PROPERTY ALIGN OF THE USERCONTROL.

THIS IS FINE BUT I DO NOT WANT THE USER TO BE ABLE TO ALIGN THE CONTROL TO THE TOP.

HOPE THIS IS MORE CLEAR

So you want to disable the align-to-top function?

Create a new enumeration that excludes that option, and apply it to the property for the align function.
