Hi

I am trying to recreate a UserControl that is in a C# project in VB.net as shown in the images below.
The first image shows the control and the second my attempt so far. I added a RichTextBox first but it took up the whole area. The same happened with a button that I tried to add.
How do I design it neatly like the first image?

Add a split container to your control.

Set Orientation = Horizontal for the split container

On Upper Panel, add your RichTextbox.

Set value of Dock Proerty to Fill for the RichTextBox

Add two buttons on the Lower Panel

for first button, set Dock= Left
and for second button, set Doc = Right.

This is give your desired result

It sounds like the Dock() property was set to Fill.  Turn that off.  Also, check the Anchor() properties to make sure they aren't all on.

Why recreate the control though?  If it is in C# you can just add it to your VB project and use it...
