Very interesting, is when I use the MS Forms textbox, the text scales
perfectly fine. How is this done?

I have attempted to use the MS Forms (wrapped in my VB-created ocx), the
standard VB textbox, and the Windows native textbox (using

the control using VC++ with ATL, same results.

I have downloaded controls (VC++ as well as VB), and they perform once

or downloaded, have behaved like the MS Forms controls (right or wrong,
it's the behavior I want).

Any ideas/suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated
