Publisher's Description:

ActiveResize Control Lite - VBGold ActiveResize Control is an intelligent VB form resizer that makes your Visual Basic applications completely resolution-independent without the need to write any code. Design your applications at any screen resolution and have them run and look exactly the same at any screen resolution. This gives your applications an equally professional look and feel on all systems, resulting in increased sales of your software.

VBGold ActiveResize Control automatically resizes and repositions all controls (and captions, text, fonts) on VB forms when the form is resized either by the user or through code. The control automatically detects the resize event of its parent form and performs a proportional accurate resizing / repositioning on all form controls without requiring you to write a single line of code! Just drag and drop the control on the form and you are done!

ActiveResize handles virtually any type of controls. It also handles complex controls like the SSTab Tabbed Dialog control, all types of Microsoft DB Grids and Data Grids, as well as both the Microsoft FlexGrid (MSFlexGrid) and Hierarchical FlexGrid (MSHFlexGrid). Version 3.x also supports all types of Sheridan controls & Grids (SSDBGrid, SSOleDBGrid, SSDBCombo, etc.). It also supports the MS Toolbar control and the MS Calendar control. Unlike other resizer controls, ActiveResize automatically resizes the form background picture and the contents of picture boxes.

ActiveResize gives you great flexibility and control over the resize / reposition process. You can individually exclude any control(s) on the form from being resized and / or repositioned.

ActiveResize is perfectly optimized for maximum processing speed, resulting in a perfect ultra-fast resizing / repositioning process that is completely invisible by the user.

ActiveResize works with the 32-bit versions of Visual Basic (5.0 and 6.0).

ActiveResize has many great features. Take a look at these features on

It looks really good. We still need to do some further testing before we upgrade to a full functioning version.

Does ActiveRisize Control Lite 3.0 work on a 64-bit version of Windows?
I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft Windows 7.

Kind regards,

Respected Sir,

i tested your activeResize control, but not working properly. my form setting are as follows:

The application developed in visual-basic 6.0

1.the form is child-form and contains a sstab
control with 4 tabs to mdi-form state is maximize.
3.the screen resolution is
(In developement)800X600

when your activeresize control used the sstab control goes out of screen in 800X600 and 1024X1260

with out your activeresize control in 800X600 resolution the sstab control completely in screen

in 1024X1260 resolution the sstab control completely in the screen but small size.

so i request you how to correct the problem using your activeresize control.I am ready to purchase the contrl if the problem solved.

thanking you sir,

with regards,

I'd like to point some small 'flaws' that may inviabilize the use of your tool (the following descriptions were taken using the Professional version):
- When we set the screen size to 800x600, even using TrueType fonts, they look 'grey' and truncated. It looks like when you convert text to image and reduce its resolution too much. Some parts becomes difficult to read. The results varies for different fonts (tested with Verdana/Helvetica) but without significant change of quality.
- Toolbars were not resized so they stay larger than the other controls.
- The ListView scrollbars weren't scaled aswell and they become HUGE compared to other controls.
- And finally, I have 20+ columns inside my ListView (all controls used in my project are from SP6) and when the form is loaded, ActiveResize screws up with column widths so, each column gets a different width and it even shows hidden columns that I need to remain hidden.

Beside those flaws, this is a great tool, easy to use and it does exactly what we'd expect. Congratulations.

I find your utility to be most useful

fairly good to use

First I was not sure to use the software, but after trying I came to the conclusion that it can be used to resize the forms in the programs I use. It works good and no extra coding is needed.

Hi Jaap,

I am not sure as to why you rated our product with only 3/5, since you already mentioned "it works good and no extra coding is needed". What else is it supposed to provide in order to rate it 5/5?!
In addition, it is totally free!!

You could also check the Professional Edition of the product (here which has an additional number of great features not available in the Lite version.

Thank you.

Works (sort of)

Very simple to use, but it does not resize everything on your form. In particular it seems to have huge problems with picture boxes.

Author's Response:
Mwo, The Lite Edition of ActiveResize Control does NOT support the resizing of the picture box graphics (the image inside the picture box). This feature and many other great features are only supported in the Professional Edition and the Standard Edition of the product. You could have taken a look first at the differences among the various editions on our web site to discover why the Lite Edition does not support that feature. The differences can be found here:

In addition, the Lite Edition of the product is offered for free. We are quite astonished why you gave a rate "3 of 5" for the price!!!

Didn`t try because of 20 control limitation

I wanted to see how it worked in my app but it wouldn't run because of the limitation.

You can try the Professional Edition of the product, which does not have any limitations. You can download a free 30-day evaluation version from here:
