I have a dialog box which is very large in size and doesn't fit the screen. How can I decrease its size on initialization and use scroll-bar to access the remaining part.
In my program I have to monitor and display 5 different data from 30 devices which makes the dialog huge.

Actually, come to think of it: This is the exact opposite problem of what people normally want to do... At least if all the spam mails I'm getting daily is anything to go by... :)

I don't mean to be a spoilsport, but if I were you, I'd try to redesign the entire user interface.

Adding a scroll bar is a solution, but not a very good one. the user still doesn't see all of it at one time, so you might as well do a redesign to get a smaller and more easily overlooked form.

Or maybe it's possible to hide some less significant parts and access them on a need to basis?

I have never tried this myself but there is an article in MSDN[^] that may help.
