VB5 form

VB5 form

Is there any way to make a form in VB5 longer then 1 screen page? I want to create a form for the college I work for but I can only make the form 1 screen page not 8.5 x 11 paper size. I have to open another form to finish the form I'm designing and then printing it takes 2 pieces of paper instead of getting it all on one.
Thanks in advance,

Sure, and it is really pretty easy. Put a picture box (or any container control) on your form. Specify the form to the size you want (which can be significantly larger than the screen size), then set the container control to the form size minus the size(s) of any scroll bar(s). Place all other controls on the container control, adjusting the Top/Left of the container control at design-time to get your placement correct. Then use the scrollbar controls to position the container as needed, either by manipulation of the scroll bar, or by direct (e.g., response to a TAB keystroke) control at run-time.
