    form view and controls sizing

    Hello,

    I am implementing a form view with controls but I am having problems sizing the width of the controls if the width of the MDIChildWnd frame which holds the view is changed.

    Apparently there are two borders that have to work together.

    The border of the MDIChildWnd frame and the border of the dialog box, the property of which I have set to Resizing.

    There are OnSize functions available for both.

    I was able to correctly size the controls in the form view in the OnActivateView code using MoveWindow for the controls. But that is as far as I was able to go.

    I have also tried using the same code in the Form View OnSize unsuccessfully.

    I have looked everywhere including Code Guru for sample code to do this but have been unsuccessful.

    Please help.

    And CYourFormView::OnSize is called when you resize the CMDIChildWnd ?

    What dialog box do you mean / refer to?
