Resize controls on a form when the user maximizes the window

Hello experts

I need to dynamically resize the controls on a form when the user clicks the maximize button.

I have found plenty of examples about how to do this sort of thing if the resolution changes but cn find nothing if it is just the size of the parent window that changes.

Why don't you use the Resize event of the form ?

If the code has only to be executed on Maximised status, then look at WindowState property of the form.

You need to set the Anchor/Dock properties of your controls.  This will allow them to be resized as your form size changes.
