    What do you mean that the control does not resize? Are you talking about the USERCONTROL object or the CONTROL that you have on the USERCONTROL object? Can you post a sample OCX project that does not work?

    in the vb help you will find the following as well as more examples and instruction on how to do what you are trying to do.

    "Creating an ActiveX Control"

    "Running the ShapeLabel Control at Design Time"
    ...
    To add code to the Resize event

    In the Project Explorer window, double-click ShapeLabel to make it the active designer.


    Double-click the ShapeLabel control to open the code window.


    In the Procedure box, click the Resize event to go to its event procedure. Add the following code:
    Private Sub UserControl_Resize()
    Static intCt As Integer
    intCt = intCt + 1
    Debug.Print "Resize " & intCt
    End Sub

    Note The name of the event procedure has the prefix "UserControl," just as the Form_Resize event procedure for an ordinary form has the prefix "Form."

    sure, comrade...

    sure..
    here it is..

    I'm using a datepicker and combo box in my user control.
    The datepicker is at the back/below of the combo box.
    I'm trying to combine the capability of both controls through making this user control. I've posted a question here, since everytime i resize the UserControl, the combo box and datepicker does not resize.

    Thank you for your advice.


    '--- The code..

    Private Sub UserControl_Resize()
    Combo1.Top = UserControl.ScaleTop
    DTPicker1.Top = UserControl.ScaleTop
    Combo1.Width = UserControl.Width
    DTPicker1.Width = UserControl.Width
    UserControl.Height = Combo1.Height
    End Sub
