TableLayoutPanel Limitations

Hello,

I am working on a vb.net(vs2010) project and am using a TableLayoutPanel for the first time. I have an arrangment of say 14 columns and 5 rows. In one of the rows I place 14 progressbars(one in each column). I set each progressbars anchor property to r/l/t/b and everything re-sizes very nicely when I re-size the form.

I want to add a few characters of text on top of each of the scroll bars and have the text also re-size. However, when a control is hosted in a cell of the TableLayoutPanel, it only appears to accept one control per cell.

Any suggested workarounds? (text on top of scroll bar and clean re-sizing)

Thanks,
bartj

Can you wrap the controls in a panel?

eg:

Add a panel to the cell and then add the controls to the panel.
