You know... Real resize function needs some information about what to do. It cannot be done without information. The program even doesn't know what I want until I give it!!!
For example, Let's say you have 4 controls.
First one is command box, so it should be moved on form_resize.
Second one is text box, so it should be wider or vice versa on form_resize.
Third one is multi-line text box, so it should vary on width and height both.
Fourth one is a label below the third one, so it should move vertically.
You can DEFINE very easily how your controls should resized according to the parent form's resizing.
If you are doing a lot of forms(maybe over 30, 50, 100?), this function will be very helpful.

ListBox and DBList will be shrinking more and more when you maximize and minimize.
You should code additionally on Form_Resize,
like this:
If Me.Height > 1000 Then
ListBox1.Height = Me.Height - 300
End If

Side Effects

If one control has two child controls, its resize definition will be inherited from the first child on EvtFormResize() arguments.
You'll see what I mean if you take care of the frame control on the sample project.
