I created a custom control in a "ContainerControl"
the base control is set to 100px wide (so when it is dragged to the Window that is the size it shows initially)
Then at design time I adjust the width to be 450px...
However when I run the app, in the Open Event of the control placed on the window, it still says it is 100px wide
here is what is REALLY strange
W=self.width // reports 100 px [me.width gives same answer]
but if I put a breakpoint there and examine the control.... is says it is 450px wide
