Planning Form Layout in VB.NET


This article shows you how to design fairly complicated forms, which can resize, using anchors, docks and panels with a dash of code.

Most of you would have heard of, and even used the new anchoring and docking properties available to the windows form controls in VB.NET. They enable controls to resize or reposition themselves as the form resizes, without writing code.

I was definitely excited about these new features. Think of the huge amount of time saved writing stupid, nonproductive resizing code just to make the forms look the same.
