Hello everybody, I have a qustion,can I automatically change the size of the forms according to the size of the textbox? I know textbox automatically resize goes, but I don´t know how to write code to change size a form.

What I have tried:

Form2.AutoSize = true;
isn't the right way

What exactly you intend to achieve/do?

I set the textbox to auto-size only when text form is written into the textbox it won't be large enough,therefore I would like the form to grow accordingly

so as you type and text length grows, you will grow your textbox and form accordingly?
If so, its not a good practice to play with form window like this with your text typing.

instead try multi-line text in fixed form. It can have a scroll once length of text exceed text view.

Answering here to remove from unanswered list.

As shared with OP, based on the need, it's not suggestible to have a form with size growing or shrinking with typing or removing text in a textbox.

Based on the need, using a multiline textbox would do. It would have a scroll for longer text once length of text exceed text view.

OP seems to agree with it.
