Resizing the Text Control

The following is involved in order to make the Text Control resize properly when the main window is resized.

Open the code window for the form that contains the Text Control. In the combo boxes on top of the code window, select Form in the Object: box and Resize in the Proc: box. The code window should show an empty procedure for the Resize event:

[Visual Basic 6]
Private Sub Form_Resize ()
End Sub

Extend it as follows:

[Visual Basic 6]
Private Sub Form_Resize ()
   TXTextControl1.Left = TXRuler2.Width
   TXTextControl1.Top = TXButtonBar1.Height + TXRuler1.Height
   TXTextControl1.Height = ScaleHeight - TXButtonBar1.Height _
      - TXRuler1.Height - TXStatusBar1.Height
   TXTextControl1.Width = ScaleWidth - TXRuler2.Width
End Sub

These lines of code will cause the Text Control's position, width and height to be adjusted every time the size of the form is altered. (The '_' character is used to extend one logical line of code to two or more physical lines).
