Control.ClientSize Property

Gets or sets the height and width of the client area of the control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public function get ClientSize () : Size 
public function set ClientSize (value : Size)

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Size
A Size that represents the dimensions of the client area of the control.

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

The Size.Width and Size.Height properties represent the width and height of the client area of the control. You can use this property to obtain the size of the client area of the control for tasks such as drawing on the surface of the control.

For more information about drawing on controls, see Rendering a Windows Forms Control.

NoteNote:

You cannot bind application settings to this property. For more information on application settings, see Application Settings Overview.

The following code example resizes the specified control so the control will accommodate its formatted text. The formatted text is the Text property with the control's assigned Font applied to the text. The AutoSizeControl method in this example also has a textPadding parameter that represents the padding to apply to all edges of the control. To make the padding appear equal, align the text with the ContentAlignment.MiddleCenter value, if your control supports it.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
