Hi experts. I am a novice with vb and i am currently designing a user interface in vs 2005. I have read up on the margin and padding properties however they dont seem to be following their settings. For example: I have added a tab control on to a base form that i imported from another project. I have set the left margin of the tab control to '10' and have set the padding of the base form to '10'. Shouldn't this enforce a space of 20 pixels between the form border and the left edge of the tab control??? Am i missing something?
