I remember using borland c++ 4 professional quite some time ago and it had a property called anchor on pretty much most of the controls, what I would like to know ( which may be a round about question or at least of my wording anyway ) is are there any control or controls that you can get for vb 6 that will allow you to add an anchor property to all if not most of the controls in vb 6 so that the controls in vb 6 automatically resize. If so has anyone got an example(s) of this

Hello Sir,

Thanks for both of the suggestions :) I hope I split the points fairly and I will probably give these suggestions a go over the next week or two ( they both look very workable ) Thx !!
