Hi,

I have used a Panel on my WinForm. When I resize the form, or maximize or minimize the form, I wanted that the Panel should resize accordingly.

What property would I have to modify?

You can use the anchor property for this. You first place the panel on the form and then enable the anchors to left, top, right and bottom. The panel will then resize relative to the form.

Good luck!

I had already tried that. The panel I have used has TableLayoutPanel inside it. Panel's Auto size property is true. When the Panel is anchored to Top, Left (by default), the TableLayout forms rows and columns which are equal in width and height.

However, when I anchor the Panel to all the sides, the TableLayoutPanel inside the Panel doesn't form rows and columns which are equal in size. Any suggestions.

Try to set the anchors of the panel to left, top, right and bottom and auto size to false. For the inner TableLayoutPanel only set the anchors left and top and auto size to true.
