ContainerControl.PerformAutoScale Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Performs scaling of the container control and its children.

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

void PerformAutoScale ()
public void PerformAutoScale ()
public function PerformAutoScale ()

An explicit call to the PerformAutoScale method is typically only required after programmatic changes to the layout during run time. PerformAutoScale is implicitly called from the OnLayout method.

PerformAutoScale is recursive; each child control, if it is a container, will have its version of this method called when the container's version executes.

For more information about automatic scaling, see Automatic Scaling in Windows Forms.
