  2. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    I've added more screen shots to the original post of additional sizing issues (with labels and links a like). I have also tried running the compiled EXE and it reverts back with improper sizing....
  3. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    So I'm wondering..is there a stress free resolution to this or no?

  4. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

  5. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    Yes and Sizable is the only border style that is correct. All other border styles are incorrect but vary by how much.
  6. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    Quoted you for the attention. Changing my FormBorderStyle from FixedDialog to Sizable fixed the issue. Still confused nor can this form be sizable. :confused:
  7. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    I have this weird gut feeling it has to do with Fonts and how they're measured.. I can only back this statement up with some research I did on the first issue. That link and label controls a like...
  8. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    Yup. I've also made sure all WinForms with links and labels that also grow have the same properties.

  10. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    Come on...another one? I couldn't find much about this particular one, would you mind providing a link? Have there been any known work around? This would make sense because our upgrade to 2012 was a...
  11. VS 2012 Re: Wonky Sizing/Auto Scaling randomly started happening.

    Nope I haven't' I've gone through all the settings, padding is still set to their defaults. Also I toggle auto size off and on for a lot of properties to no effect.

  13. VS 2012 Re: Breakpoints cause dialog to become non-responsive.

    Nailed it. It's exactly as I'm doing. Typically they're border-less forms. With panels placed in such a way to obtain the look we desire. I have a custom toolbar, with toolbar buttons and a label in...
  14. VS 2012 Re: Breakpoints cause dialog to become non-responsive.

  24. Re: Toggle project (enterprise software) features at build.

  26. Toggle project (enterprise software) features at build.

  27. Re: Legals when "randomly" selecting a winner.

  28. Re: Legals when "randomly" selecting a winner.

    WOW incredible stuff jmcilhinney!

    A very neat approach to reuse the Random class. One I didn't even think of doing myself. In all honestly I was trying to stay away from it, but in retrospect I...
  29. Re: Legals when "randomly" selecting a winner.

    Actually the above post works, but not entirely. I need something with a maximum of 37,000, minimum... Perhaps I'm doing this wrong. But when I use 1000 for a maximum, it never produces a value...

  31. Re: Legals when "randomly" selecting a winner.

    Whoa! nail on the head. I can now see why the use of the Random class in this situation is bad. And in all honestly coincided my gut feeling! An interesting solution to. I'll be sure to look into...
  32. Legals when "randomly" selecting a winner.

    You can split up each line by commas as you've done, then just assign them to the appropriate array item within the same loop.
