Maximize DataGrid With Form

I'm using VB6 against an SQL Server database.

From the main application screen a form is launched which has a DataGrid on the form.
It's a Sheridan datagrid but has many of the same properties as a Microsoft datagrid.
The user can maximize the form but the datagrid doesn't resize along with the form.
Is there a way I can resize my datagrid when the user maximizes the form?
And if so, which event would this code be placed into?

Thanks in Advance.
John

Private Sub Form_Resize()
  On Error Resume Next
  DataGrid1.Height = Me.Height
  DataGrid1.Width = Me.Width
End Sub

Or adjust the height/width/top/left to correctly size within the form.

You need the on error as if the form is minimized or resized too small you may generate an error because the datagrid height or width may go less than zero.

Private Sub Form_Resize()

    On Error Goto 0

    grd.top = coords here
    grd.left = coords here
    grd.height = me.scaleHeight - grd.left
    grd.width = me.scaleWidth - grd.top
       
   
End Sub


something like that, don't have VB on this comp now, just a guide I hope it works for you =)
