VB6 Auto Resize Form Elements

For the last 16yrs I have been manually writing all my form resize code which is always a bit of an annoyance. Its error prone, you have to fuss with it and its unique for every form you work on. Its not a huge task so whatever I just dealt with it.

I know .NET has the anchoring properties, I played with it a little bit but it still wasnt really in a format that I liked, so even there I just wrote the resize code manually.

I know there are resizing/anchoring libraries already available for vb6, but I wanted something simple and lite weight and something I wrote. I finally got around to writing one this morning which you can find here.
