You can use this property to allow your form and its controls to automatically adjust based on changes in the font. This can be useful in applications where the font might increase or decrease based on the language specified for use by Windows.

To obtain the size the form will auto scale to, use the AutoScaleBaseSize property. If you want to determine the size the form will auto scale to based on a specific font, use the GetAutoScaleSize method.
