Make Your First ActiveX Control
So now the Control look like a button.
it's not a button, it's a form with button on it.
But what if the user will
resize the control at design time
(like you do to Command Button, after you
enter it to your form)?
Suppose you have a regular
form with a button on it,
and the form is resized to the button size (like
in your current control).
When the user will resize the form, he will
see the form
that was before 'under' the button.
The same thing
will happen in our case.
To solve this problem, when
the user resize the form (i.e the control),
we need to resize the button to
fit the form and the form will be
again at the size of the button.
When the user resize the control, he
actually try to resize the button.
Enter the following code to let the
user resize the button
instead of resizing the form:
Private Sub UserControl_Resize()
Command1.Width = UserControl.Width
the name of the Form/Control.
thus, UserControl.Width is the
UserControl.Height is the Form/Control Height and
the event that occur when the user resize the control.
