(low prio) Resizing toolbar on SizeChanged

Hi everyone,
this is a low priority question, no need to hestitate.

I would like to know what is the best way to react on the IE resize event.

Currently I do the following:

        private void coolbar_SizeChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
            timerResize.Interval = 150;
            timerResize.Enabled = true;

        private void timerResize_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
                timer1.Enabled = false;

Reposition() changes the position of controls so that they fit in the IE screen size.

This works fine. However it is kind of a nasty implementation; I don't like using the timer and think there is a better way to do it.

If I call reposition() directly in the SizeChanged, the controls are repositioned, but the toolbar's size is not in or decreased if neccessary.

I set the toolbar height with this code:

this.Module.ToolBars[0].ToolBarObj.Height = curheight;

(I only have one toolbar, so directly using Index 0 should be okay).

Kind Regards
Stephan Muller

Hi Stephan.

Please try to use the OnSendMessage event handler instead of the timer. To send a custom message to the toolbar you can use the SendMesage method of the ADXIEToolbar class.
