Forms and properties

I have a form where I have added my own property, basically a report type.  I have 3 different frames hidden on the form based on the report type.  In the development view the form is very wide.  When it comes up in the run-time environment I change the size to make it smaller.  However, I'm getting a flickering of the original size (which I don't want).  How can I get rid of this?

Thanks,

Are you changing the size in the form_load event ?

Put all your resize code in a separate sub eg.

Public Sub ResizeTheForm()
  'do all your resizing here
End Sub

Then before you show the form call this e.g.

Load frmYourForm
frmYourForm.ResixeTheForm
frmYourForm.Show

Make the form the size you want it at design time. Write down the Width property.  Then make the form the size you want it to be when you run the program.  Then write down that Width. And then type back in the other Width (the design time one) so you can put it back how you want it. Then in 'Private Sub Form_Load()' Right under that the very first thing, Before even showing the form, Put Me.Width = (the run time size here)
That should do it.
If not, you can try Hiding the form right away as the 1st thing. (Me.Hide) then change the Width of the form. then show the form (Me.Show)
