how to resize panels to fit all controls


I'm thinking there must be a way to tell a panel to resize to exactly the size required for all its controls to be visible. So if it's too big, it shrinks to fit all the controls snugly, and if it's too small, it grows so that all the controls can be seen.

How can I do this?

Yes, it's called the AutoSize property.

This works in conjunction with the AutoSizeMode property, and will only shrink to fit if it is set the GrowAndShrink.

Thank you very much Borvik.
