Change form width ???

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

With this code I can change the width of a panel til the width of the form - the useable part of the form !

  public partial class Form1 : Form
    public Form1()

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
      Panel aPanel = new Panel();
      aPanel.BorderStyle = BorderStyle.FixedSingle;
      aPanel.Width = ClientSize.Width;

How can I do it the other way around = set the form width to the width of a panel ?

It seems like the ClientSize.Width is READ ONLY !

I can use

this.Width = aPanel.Width + 8;

but what is this spooky 8 ????

Change dimensions of image if width exceeds certain amount


(In a different post  I asked about how to access an Image control held in a FormView template. This topic has been mixed into it, so I thought I would start a fresh post only about this problem.)

I would like to perform a simple check to ascertain the width of an image. If it exceeds a certain dimension I would like to give the image a width property. I understand this doesn't not affect file size, just dimensions, but it is for presentation purposes. I'm still learning VB, but the code below is what I have tried so far:

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Dim LargeImage As Image = DirectCast(FormView1.FindControl("Image1"), Image)

        Dim Width As Integer
        Width = LargeImage.Width.Value

        If Width > 560 Then
            LargeImage.Width = Unit.Pixel(560)
        End If

    End Sub


Thanks in advance,

Change Site.Master width in CSS


Hi, I'm all new to ASP.NET but not to CSS/HTML.

I created a new WebApplication in Visual Studio 2010. In the CSS document (Site.css) it says:

    width: 960px;
    background-color: #fff;
    margin: 20px auto 0px auto;
    border: 1px solid #496077;

And the first div tag in the Site.Master file is:

<div class="page">

If I change that 960px to 400px for instance, it does not change the width of my document. Even if I write 0px it does not "recognize" the change.

RoundedCornersExtenders, change border width?


Is it possible, either through layout tricks, or modifying the roundedCorners.js file, to change the default border width of the roundedCornersExtender?  I would like to make the border a little thicker than the default 1px width.

I have read a few people who have tried to do this but no one could seem to come up with anything, and most of the posts were several years old, so I wanted to check back and see if anyone knows if this is possible?

Thanks in advance!
