Hi
For some reason I can't fit my wording into the space provided for a checkbox label.
When I try to increase the label size it autiomatically goes back down.
Amy ideas?

Are you increasing the label size in your code while the program is running , or in the designer?

If the Autosize property is turned on, the designer will automatically set the size according to the text you have entered. It's possible that something flaky is happening with that. Set that property to False and you'll have complete control over sizing it.
