If you know the increment of the height, do this:

Form1.Size=New Point(Form1.Width, Form1.Height + HeightIncrement)

1) I am on design mode, i need to controls from design. I really dont want to write any code .. as because .. we are not increasing the size of the form on run time. Size of the form will decided before compiling the code.

2) i need to have vertical scroll bar on right hand side of the form

ZhaolaiCommented:
Ah,at design time, just point your mouse at the lower right corner of the form and drag it down to get bigger.
Or as @tommyBoy pointed out, change the Size property on the form's property list.

Do you have MaximumSize property set to (1004, 780)? if so, change it to (0,0).

chokkaStudentAuthor Commented:


Maximum Size - 0,0

Minimum Size - 0,0

Size :- 1004, 780 ..!

More than this, even if use drag on either side of the Form .. its not changing ..!

ZhaolaiCommented:
I believe you hit the maximum ALLOWED height of your machine, which is your display setting.

You may be right ..!

How to change the setting ..

Some thing in Visual Studio Environment setting properties ..!

ZhaolaiCommented:
See the image below. Right click on your desktop->Properties->Settings.

Note: Making it too big may not be a good idea because you need to consider your users' settings when you deploy your project.

You can always add your controls to a Panel inside your form and set AutoScroll to True in the properties. This will produce a scroll bar for any controls that do not fit.

Thanks, I have set the property -to True ..

Still the main issue of setting the Form  Property is not able to succeed ..!

I have attached the screen shot of Form 1

What ever controls, i have added to the Form 1 .. I need to add similar set of controls in the Form 2 with one common submit button.

If i am keeping two forms ..! Technically, i need to maintain the Visible of both forms and also i will face the issue of transfering the values from one FORM to another FORM ..!

It is tedious for programmer and also end user

This is actually  a serious issue .. not only for end user .. but also for me ..!

Since we need to store the data on single click event .. which has more than 50 Values..!

Imagine, if we split 25 values from Page 1 and 25 Values on Page 2 ..!  There can be some issue arises while proceeding for storing the data  ..!

Now that you already resolved the issue in other thread, you can probably go ahead to close this question.

chokkaStudentAuthor Commented:
In other thread, i discussed about Vertical Scroll bar
0
 
ZhaolaiCommented:
Yes, by using scrollbar, you can place more controls on the form. You or end users just need to scroll up/down or left/right to see all the fields on the form.

Does this technique resolve your problem?

I have to follow different approach .. for handling many controls on one Form

ZhaolaiCommented:
What different approach are you taking? Would you mind sharing with rest of us? I do not see any suggestions in the link of your earlier post.

Thanks.

Initial Posting of this question is .. I am not able to increase the size of the Form.

Ans should be .. it is possible or not ?

On my research, i realized that we cannot increase the size of the Form .. On changing the resolution will impact the Application when it goes for deploying on User's Machine
