Setting Images as Backgrounds for Forms

    Does anyone know if it is possible to dynamically resize a picture file, (.bmp, .jpg, .gif) being used as a background for a form, so that it stretches itself appropriately to cover the area of each of the different forms in an application, regardless of their size?

    As far as I know, you need to use an Image control for that. Set it's stretch property to true, and then in the Form_Resize event, you can add

    Image1.Move 0,0,ScaleWidth,ScaleHeight
