    UserControl won't fit on Form

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble getting my UserControl to fit snuggly in my panel. Here's a screen shot of what it looks like:

    Name:  usercontrol not fitting.jpg
Views: 47
Size:  21.6 KB

    The UserControl is in red and the panel I'm trying to fit it onto is in grey (the white is a ListBox in my UserControl). As you can see, it's going off the right edge of the Form.

    I have these settings for both the panel and the UserControl:

    AutoSize: true
    AutoSizeMode: GrowAndShrink
    Anchor: AnchorStyle.Left | AnchorStyle.Top | AnchorStyle.Right
    Dock: DockStyle.Top

    But for some reason, either the panel or the UserControl doesn't want to shrink down to the appropriate size.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Have you tried Dock: DockStyle.Fill yet?

    That doesn't seem to work.

    Open the xxx.designer.cs file and make sure the user control has the proper parent control set. It's parent should be the panel.

    I seem to have solved the problem by docking my ListBox to "top". Thanks for everyone's help.
