    Anchoring a controll using code

    How would I anchor all 4 sides of a control using code.

    This is what I got so far...

    Code:
    formControll.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Bottom;
    but that only sets it to bottom, and if I add somthing below that like this:

    Code:
    formControll.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Bottom;
    formControll.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Top;
    It will only anchor to the top then. I need to anchor them all on the same peice of code, how do I do that?

    You need to do a bitwise OR on them. Theres a tutorial on how it works in the C++ tutorials on this site (it's the same for C#), but this is basically what you do:
    Code:
    formControll.Anchor = AnchorStyles.Bottom | AnchorStyles.Top | AnchorStyles.Left | AnchorStyles.Right;

    omfg, I was so close. I did || instead of |.

    Second time I asked this and was answered on this bored (other time was in C++).

    Thanks once again.
