I have a popup that I call and inside that popup is my  usercontrol with all my controls in it. I want to create an add section below it but still in the usercontrol. When they click add I want to "expand" the usercontrol and form to view those controls. Is it posible?

Sure.  Just change the size of the usercontrol and form.  The main issue is setting up the layout of the form so other controls gracefully shift when the size changes.  Depending on how the usercontrol is positioned and anchored/docked, you may be able to simply change the size of the form and the usercontrol will adjust accordingly.

How are you displaying the "popup"?

AddToGrid asg = new AddToGrid();
            PopupForm form = new PopupForm();
            form.Text = "Add User";
            form.Height = asg.Size.Height + 30;
            form.Width = asg.Size.Width;
            form.Controls.Add(asg);
            form.ShowDialog();

Open in new window

Cool.  The only other thing I would mention is that some would recommend you not directly manipulate the parent form from the usercontrol in that manner.  Instead, you would make the usercontrol raise a custom event that requests the parent form resize itself.  If that particular usercontrol is very tightly integrated with the parent form, and doesn't get used in any other capacity, then it might not be worth the time.
