Ok...here's a chance for someone to pick up some easy points....I have a standard form nothing special here, but my problem is that the form length (or height) is maxed out in design view. I am needing to create a very long form with a scrollbar. (when I say long I mean very long!!).  It's not an option for me to use a tab control and try to shorten the length..etc...  I need a form longer than what vb is allowing me to drag it at in design view.   So my question is...is there a maximum length...I can't imaging there would be with scrollbar capabilites...so my next question is how do I increase the length, if I can no longer drag the boundaries of the form down any more??

Hopefully this is easy points for someone!
Thanks

The maximum height of the form depends on the screen resolution.  In my VB6 days, I found that forms with border style None would let you increase that beyond the limit, but I haven't found that to be the case with VB.NET.

Typically in Access, if I build a form with a 1024x768 resolution then switch to 800x600 is will just add scrollbars as will vb.  Are you saying that with vb.net there is a limit in the length of a form?  (Seems like the scrollbars wuold allow for an unlimited length)....

You might try adding a Panel to the form.  It appears that with AutoScroll = True with the Panel control, that it will let the control's position go beyond the working area for the form.

You'd think vb.net wouldn't requrie a work around like this for something that seems so basic, but it works great usig a panel to increase the size to the desired length.....so thanks for the help!!
