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

Protected Overridable Function GetScaledBounds ( _
	bounds As Rectangle, _
	factor As SizeF, _
	specified As BoundsSpecified _
) As Rectangle
Dim bounds As Rectangle 
Dim factor As SizeF 
Dim specified As BoundsSpecified 
Dim returnValue As Rectangle 

returnValue = Me.GetScaledBounds(bounds, _
	factor, specified)


Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle

A Rectangle that specifies the area for which to retrieve the display bounds.

Type: System.Drawing.SizeF

The height and width of the control's bounds.

Type: System.Windows.Forms.BoundsSpecified

One of the values of BoundsSpecified that specifies the bounds of the control to use when defining its size and position.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle
A Rectangle representing the bounds within which the control is scaled.

This is a helper method that is called by ScaleControl to retrieve the bounds within which the control is scaled. You can override this method to reuse the ScaleControl scaling logic, but you must supply your own bounds. The default implementation returns scaled bounds that take into account the specified bounds, whether the control is top level, whether the control is fixed width or auto size, and any adornments the control might have.
