Hello,

I need some help on the height and width issue of items on my form. Currently I've tried anchoring two picture boxes on my form so that they are split 50 /50 as outlined in the design but with no luck as the two picture boxes are all over the place.

Hi,

Go to Tools | Options to display the Options dialog box. On the left side, select Windows Forms Designer. On the right, under Layout Settings, set Show Grid to true.

That was already selected. If you take a look at this image on the left the picture box has been anchored to the top and left and on the right the picture box has been anchored to the top and right, however there is a big gap in the middle. It's this gap that I'm struggling to fill. this happens when the form is debugged.

Try anchoring both to "Top, Left, Right".

Did that and I also added this code but they just overlap

 picturebox1.Width = picturebox2.Width / 2

No amount of Dock/Anchor is going to get a 50/50 split that properly resizes with the form.  This is exactly what the TableLayoutPanel() control is for!
