Control.SetClientSizeCore Method

Sets the size of the client area of the control.

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

'Declaration
Protected Overridable Sub SetClientSizeCore ( _
	x As Integer, _
	y As Integer _
)

Parameters

x
Type: System.Int32

The client area width, in pixels.

y
Type: System.Int32

The client area height, in pixels.

The client area starts at the (0, 0) location and extends to the (x, y) location.

Typically, you should not set the ClientSize of the control.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding SetClientSizeCore in a derived class, be sure to call the base class's SetClientSizeCore method so that the ClientSize property is adjusted.

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

The following code example overrides the SetClientSizeCore method to ensure that the control remains square. This example requires that you have a class that is either directly or indirectly derived from the Control class.

Protected Overrides Sub SetClientSizeCore(x As Integer, y As Integer)
   ' Keep the client size square. 
   If x > y Then 
      MyBase.SetClientSizeCore(x, x)
   Else 
      MyBase.SetClientSizeCore(y, y)
   End If 
End Sub
