Specifies how a control will behave when its AutoSize property is enabled.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
|The control grows or shrinks to fit its contents. The control cannot be resized manually.|
|The control grows as much as necessary to fit its contents but does not shrink smaller than the value of its Size property. The form can be resized, but cannot be made so small that any of its contained controls are hidden.|
The following code example shows a form created using code that automatically resizes to fit its contents. When ran, the form will display a Label, a TextBox for entering a URL, and a Button for displaying that URL inside of the user's default Web browser. The code example uses a FlowLayoutPanel to lay out the contained controls one after the other, and sets the AutoSize and to grow and shrink to fit the contents of its form.
