How to use clsAutopositioner:

  1. Add clsAutopositioner.cls and clsAutoPositionerItem.cls to your vb-project
  2. Generate a Instance of clsAutopositioner on your form's load
  3. Attach any control to this object
  4. Call the Resize-Method of clsAutoPositioner on the form_resize event.

Example to generate some resizeable / fixed delta - controls:


private Sub Form_Load()
' Always relative to container's right border
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command1, me, _
    tCONTAINER_RELATIVE_POS_RIGHT
' Auto resizing horizontally
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command2, me, _
    tCONTAINER_WIDTH_DELTA_RIGHT
' Auto resizing vertically
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command3, me, _
    tCONTAINER_HEIGHT_DELTA_BOTTOM
' Always relative to container's bottom border
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command4, me, _
    tCONTAINER_RELATIVE_POS_BOTTOM
' Auto resizing horizontally + Auto resizing vertically
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command5, me, _
    tCONTAINER_WIDTH_DELTA_RIGHT
  m_oAutoPos.AddAssignment me.Command5, me, _
    tCONTAINER_HEIGHT_DELTA_BOTTOM
'
End Sub
'
private Sub Form_Resize()
  m_oAutoPos.RefreshPositions
End Sub
'
'
