anchor picturebox in vb.net not working

Hello,

Note: Using VB2010 framework 4.0

In an effort to create a progress bar that functions vertically instead of the default left right I have some code that creates a bitmap on a picture box (uses an invisible instance of the progress bar) . This all works well Here is the code:

Sub SetProgressbar( Byval x as integer)

Dim thebitmap as Bitmap = New Bitmap(ProgressBar1,Width, ProgressBar1.Height)
ProgressBar1.DrawToBitmap(thebitmap,New Rectangle(0,0,ProgressBar1.Width,ProgressBar.Height))
thebitmap,RotateFilp(RotateFlipStype.Rotate270FlipNone)
PictureBox1.image = thebitmap

End Sub

However, if I set the anchor property of the picturebox to top,bottom,left,right and resize the form, the picturebox and its bitmap do not re-size.

Any suggestions of getting a progress bar to run vertically AND have it resize automatically?
Thanks!
Bartj

All,

I was able to solve this by using a "codeproject" control:
