Lesson 15. Modifying a Form > Resizing Controls

Resizing Controls

After you adjust the spacing between each text box and its label as needed (as in the preceding section), follow these steps to change a controlís length:

  1. Click the control to select it. Selection handles appear around it.

  2. Position the mouse pointer at the right edge, so the pointer turns into a double-headed arrow (see Figure 15.3).

  3. Drag the control to its new length, and then release the mouse button.

    Figure 15.3. You can change the size of the control entry area by dragging it.

    Tip

    Multiline Labels If the text displayed in a text box or label control is too long to fit in the allotted space, consider making it multiline by dragging its bottom selection handle down. That way, its text can wrap to the next line, so it doesn't require so much space from side to side.
