Resize buttons in panel if vertical scroll is necessary

Hi,
I use a panel control with buttons I add at runtime as the 'main menu' navigation.  Depending on the user, only 3 buttons (no scroll) or 17 buttons (need scroll) appear.  So when there is 17 buttons, the panel adds the vertical scroll.  But the buttons do not resize so then a horizontal scroll also is added.  What I need it to do when the vertical scroll is added that the buttons resize so only a vertical scroll is present. I have tried both docking and anchoring; do I need to use another control...any help would be greatly appreciated.
Please let me know if more information is needed.  Thanks in advance!

I would think that you just need to calculate the width for each button, based on the client width for the Panel and the number of buttons.

Thanks TheLearnedOne...your way is the way I  ended up doing it.  I was hoping that the panel would resize the butons once it would know that it required a vertical scroll.
