    you cannot increase the size for greater lengths...normally it is not advisable to increse the lengths of the form...
    if you want a lengthy form...then add a picture box with scroll bars and move the controls accordingly...

    picture box? I have controls, labels and textboxes and image boxes filling the entire form from top to bottom, how can I get these controls inside a picture box?

    Probably that's all that will fit with your screen resolution.

    Is there an error message?

    cut and paste may sound lousy using a picture box...
    but you can make scrollable forms with picture box by poroperly handling it...
