Control.ScaleChildren Property

Gets a value that determines the scaling of child controls.

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

protected virtual bool ScaleChildren { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if child controls will be scaled when the Scale method on this control is called; otherwise, false. The default is true.

If the ScaleChildren property is true, then the Scale method will recursively call the ScaleControl method of each of its child controls.

The default implementation of ScaleChildren always returns true. Derived classes can override ScaleChildren to return false to indicate that scaling should not be performed on their children.
