Hi Experts
        In my winform application i am using infragistics control for UI design.I want to implement resize functionality in my winforms. ie. resolution independent resizing of all the controls inside the form. i dont want to use any third party for this. Could any one please give me some code sample for this.

Note:
 Docking and Anchoring is not a solution for this

Bind a delegate to the resize event of your form and resize and relayout your controls when this event is fired.
The actual code to do this will depend on what controls you have on your form and how you want them laid out.
