I have a C# program, using .NET... I have a bunch of controls in a tab container inside a main form... I want the user to be able to resize the mainForm window and have the other objects resize proportionally.

Can that be done?  If so, how?

Yes...controls automatically adjust themselves to their containers based on their Anchor() and Dock() properties.

I don't think there is anything automatic for adjusting fonts...you would have to manually adjust sizes.
(I could be wrong though)

OK... I have made some changes, and when I try to resize the window by dragging the bottom, it moves (I can see the dotted line outline) and then snaps back!  Why?
