    GetPreferredSize Method (EditBase)
    In This Topic
    Retrieves the size of a rectangular area into which a control can fit.
    Syntax
    'Declaration
     
    
    Public Overrides Function GetPreferredSize( _
       ByVal proposedSize As Size _
    ) As Size
    'Usage
     
    
    Dim instance As EditBase
    Dim proposedSize As Size
    Dim value As Size
     
    value = instance.GetPreferredSize(proposedSize)
    public override Size GetPreferredSize( 
       Size proposedSize
    )

    Parameters

    proposedSize
    The custom-sized area for a control.

    Return Value

    An ordered pair of type System.Drawing.Size objects that represent the width and height of a rectangle.
    Remarks
    The behavior of GetPreferredSize differs by control. The LayoutEngine might be unable to assign the returned size to the control. You can return a size larger than the constraints indicated in the proposedSize parameter, but proposedSize should decrease as the constraint decreases. For example, GetPreferredSize(new Size(100, 0)) should not be wider than GetPreferredSize(new Size(200, 0)). The exception is a proposedSize of 0 or Size.Empty, which is defined as unconstrained.
