Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>]
abstract Bounds : Rectangle with get, set
[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>]
override Bounds : Rectangle with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle
A Rectangle in pixels relative to the parent control that represents the size and location of the control including its nonclient elements.

The bounds of the control include the nonclient elements such as scroll bars, borders, title bars, and menus. The SetBoundsCore method is called to set the Bounds property. The Bounds property is not always changed through its set method so you should override the SetBoundsCore method to ensure that your code is executed when the Bounds property is set.

The following code example creates three Button controls on a form and sets their size and location by using the various size-related and location-related properties. This example requires that you have a Form that has a width and height of at least 300 pixels.
