Hi,

I am faced with the following problem. I need to have 4 containers inside a tabcontroller page ( 2 columns with the rows each). The problem is that I want them all the grow/shrink with the resizing of the tabcontroller. Also, I would like to have the possibility to "maximize" one of the containers to cover the entire tabpage...

Is this possible? And if so... HELP !!

I am a newbie with .net but have some preety solid background in C/C++, especially under linux

Thanks,
Alex

Place TableLayoutPanel control with two rows and two columns on the form and set it's Dock property to fill. Fill every cell with required controls using Dock, Anchor, Padding properties to get required control behavour inside of cell.
Set 50% size for every column and row of TableLayoutPanel (or any other value you need). Test how this program behaves when form is resized - you can do this both at design and at run time.
For maximization, change cell size dynamically at run time. For example, to maximize cell (0, 0), set first row and column size to 100%, and all other rows and columns to 0%.
