    userform is large.....how to use scrollbar of userform to show all of the userform

    I created a "dynamic" userform based off of some code that i found on the internet. I seem to have it working.

    Let me tell you kinda what it does and then explain my issue.
    The user indentifies how many Quizes and problems per quiz. I then show the userform to get the possible points per problem. The issue is that IF the user wants say 3 quizes with say 12 questions/problems per quiz then the userform height is too large for the screen.

    I did activate the scroll bar for the userform and as long as i go into the properties of the userform and set the scrollbar properties to the following then things work ok.
    Keepscrollbarsvisible = 2
    scrollbars = 2
    scrollheigh = 10000

    The problem is that for a scrollheight > than userform height i think it will work ok. However, if i use scrollheight of 10000 this means there will be a lot of "unpopulate" space at the bottom of the userform. I was thinking that if i could also update the scrollheight based on what the userform height is that i could get rid of this "unpoplulated" space.

    Does this make sense?

    When you initialize the userform, you should be able to set the properties. So make the scrollheight = the userform height. That will do it, right?

    since the userform is dynamic.......i cant set it during the initialize step ...at least i dont think so and still have it work.

    What i did find works is the following:
    Once i have finished adding controls to the userform.........so i know the userform height wont change any more.......i then set this height to the "scrollheight" and then i reduce the actual userform height to something that will fit on the screen. It works.......i think.
    Not as professional looking as some i have seen but it works ok.
