I have application that i am resizing on start up depending on the screen resolution.

I am able to resize all the controls on the form, by passing the form into a routine and iterating through the controls.

I cant work out how I can iterate through the  LineShape's on the form as they are not actual a control?

Thanks,

You can still find LineShape controls in form's control list but you can not cast these to Control. You have to cast these to LineShape.

How would i detect that control is a Lineshape without casting it as a control?

Something like below

For Each ctrl In Me.Controls
   If Typeof(ctrl) Is LineShape Then
       Dim lctrl As LineShape = ctrl
       ...
   End If
End If

Hi, i tried this before but i get a compile error saying

systems.windows.forms.control can never be of type Microsoft.visulabasic.powerpacks.lineshape

This is where i am really stuck as far as i can see the LineShape is not a control

Thanks

Ah. I think when you use shapes, a ShapeContainer1 object is added to the form. You can access all shapes using it.
