Can you be a little bit more clear what you really want to achieve ?

If you want to spit your form into pages, I suggest that you use a tab control.
You can then place groups of controls on each tab.

There are two tab controls, the TabStrip and the SSTab. The Tabstrip needs to be programmed to show and hide each set of controls.

The SSTab easier to set up because it is a container.

You could expand the width by placing a wide frame control on the form and moving it sideways with a horizontal scroll bar.

Sorry. I clicked on the wrong button.

This file has been renamed .txt. You need to change it to .frm
