From where?...

From within the main form itself, use the Size() property:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.form.size.aspx

     this.Size.Width

If you are not in the main form then you need a reference to it...

Yeah... I don't know why I wasn't doing that.  Realized it after a couple of minutes.  Thanks.
