Sizing form-based views

Sizing form-based views

I am having trouble with sizing the windows of a form-based application. The view inherits from the CFormView class (as opposed to CView)and consists of a simple dialog that is popped up for every new document that is created. The problem is that I cannot seem to specify the size of the dialog that is popped up and thus have to scroll to see all the controls. I have tried overriding the CFormView create function so that I can specify my own RECT coordinates, but it still uses a default-sized window when the view is popped up. There does not seem to be any easy wasy to fix this - can anyone help?


RE: Sizing form-based views

Dear Dan,

Take a look at ResizeParentToFit() member function.

Hope this helps
