Resize Table cell dynamically

Hi,

I am trying to do the following:
I have a 2 by 2 table in VC++2005 and I would like to be able to have a button in each cell that, when clicked, expands the cell to span the entire table and, when clicked again, returns to original (50% by 50%) view.

Basically, I would like to change the ColumnStyle and RowStyle as I see fit at runtime... and have no idea how to do so


Level: NEWBIE in Visual C++ but with a solid background in C/C++

Thanks,
Alex

If your table is built using TableLayoutPanel, as I suggested in your previous question, use this code. To test it create new C++/CLI Windows application and paste this code to Form1.h replacing existing code:

#pragma once


namespace test {

    using namespace System;
    using namespace System::ComponentModel;
    using namespace System::Collections;
    using namespace System::Windows::Forms;
    using namespace System::Data;
    using namespace System::Drawing;

    public ref class Form1 : public System::Windows::Forms::Form
    {
    public:
        Form1(void)
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            //
            //TODO: Add the constructor code here
            //
        }

    protected:
        ~Form1()
        {
            if (components)
            {
                delete components;
            }
        }
    private: System::Windows::Forms::TableLayoutPanel^  tableLayoutPanel1;
    protected:
    private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button1;
    private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button2;
    private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button3;
    private: System::Windows::Forms::Button^  button4;

    private:
        /// <summary>
        /// Required designer variable.
        /// </summary>
        System::ComponentModel::Container ^components;

#pragma region Windows Form Designer generated code
        /// <summary>
        /// Required method for Designer support - do not modify
        /// the contents of this method with the code editor.
        /// </summary>

Small correction: move maximized variable outside of Windows Form Designer region. This makes code clear: maximized is my variable and not variable generated by code designer.

    private:  bool maximized;
