Changes made to the Height and Top property values cause the Bottom property value of the control to change.

The minimum height for the derived control Splitter is one pixel. The default height for the Splitter control is three pixels. Setting the height of the Splitter control to a value less than one will reset the property value to the default height.

The following code example creates three Button controls on a form and sets their size and location by using the various size-related and location-related properties. This example requires that you have a Form that has a width and height of at least 300 pixels.

' Create three buttons and place them on a form using 
' several size and location related properties. 
Private Sub AddOKCancelButtons()
   ' Set the button size and location using 
      ' the Size and Location properties. 
   Dim buttonOK As New Button()
   buttonOK.Location = New Point(136, 248)
   buttonOK.Size = New Size(75, 25)
   ' Set the Text property and make the 
   ' button the form's default button. 
   buttonOK.Text = "&OK"
   Me.AcceptButton = buttonOK

   ' Set the button size and location using the Top, 
   ' Left, Width, and Height properties. 
   Dim buttonCancel As New Button()
   buttonCancel.Top = buttonOK.Top
   buttonCancel.Left = buttonOK.Right + 5
   buttonCancel.Width = buttonOK.Width
   buttonCancel.Height = buttonOK.Height
   ' Set the Text property and make the 
   ' button the form's cancel button. 
   buttonCancel.Text = "&Cancel"
   Me.CancelButton = buttonCancel

   ' Set the button size and location using 
   ' the Bounds property. 
   Dim buttonHelp As New Button()
   buttonHelp.Bounds = New Rectangle(10, 10, 75, 25)
   ' Set the Text property of the button.
   buttonHelp.Text = "&Help"

   ' Add the buttons to the form.
   Me.Controls.AddRange(New Control() {buttonOK, buttonCancel, buttonHelp})
End Sub
