I have midi form with a rich textbox control. I have buttons on the form below the rich control, but when the form opens, the buttons sit ontop of the rich control. What am I missing here?

Try putting the buttons in a frame and RTF control in a different frame. The frame will contain it.

take a look at the form_resize
(from the form with the richtextbox)


i assume there is some code to resize the richtextbox, like this:
Richtextbox1.move 0,0,me.scalewidth,me.scaleheight

or

richtextbox1.top = 0
richtextbox1.left=0
richtextbox1.width=me.scalewidth
richtextbox1.height=me.scaleheigt



edit that code to take care of the buttons
