Hi All,
I have build ActiveX control which was working for years.
Now I decided to update it.I did not toch any sizing functionallity.After registering the new ocx,with comletely new ProgID,I'm able to change Height and Width from everywhere but NOT using scripting in IE.Same problem on different computers.This is the public method of my control I'm using to resize:

Public Sub Resize(HT, WD)
Print #1, "Resize(HT, WD),BEGIN"
Print #1, "Resize(HT, WD).Passed val:" & CStr(vLng(HT) * _
Screen.TwipsPerPixelY) & "," & CStr(vLng(WD) * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX)
UserControl.Height = vInt(HT) * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY
UserControl.Width = vLng(WD) * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
Print #1, "Resize(HT, WD) control height=" & CStr(UserControl.Height)
Print #1, "Resize(HT, WD),END"
End Sub

Private Sub UserControl_Resize()

end sub

This is the log file:
Resize(HT, WD),BEGIN
Resize(HT, WD).Passed val:3000,14385
Resize(HT, WD) control height=15
Resize(HT, WD),END

As you can see from the log,UserControl got 3000,
was trying to assing:
UserControl.Height=3000,
But after this it is still 15...

Any ideas,please..

From VB (Working):
Private Sub Form_Resize()
NavBar1.Resize (Me.Height - 1000) / Screen.TwipsPerPixelY, (Me.Width - 1000) / Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
End Sub
From Script(NOT Working):
function window_onresize() {
NavBar1.Resize(document.body.offsetHeight,document.body.offsetWidth);
prevheight=document.body.offsetHeight;
}

....
<body onresize="window_onresize()">
<OBJECT id=NavBar1 style="LEFT: 0px; WIDTH: 50px; TOP: 0px; HEIGHT: 250px" height=250
     width=50 classid="clsid:52F8B7B5-E7E5-433B-ABDE-385168EF41CE" VIEWASTEXT>
     <PARAM NAME="_ExtentX" VALUE="1323">
     <PARAM NAME="_ExtentY" VALUE="6615">
     <PARAM NAME="Color" VALUE="14737632">
</OBJECT>

Hi,
Actually I found a bug in my code:
I was trying to do this:

1)Usercontrol.height=...
2)UserControl.Width=...

3)sub UserControl_Resize ....
4)somethingelse=UserControl.Width
5)end sub

So what happend is:
From line 1) execution going to Line 3),so my "somethingelse" still has the old size...

I resolved it by replasing lines 1) ans 2) with:
UserControl.Size x,y   Method.
Thanks
