Layout managers are responsible for automatic reposition of controls hosted in a window for which layout management is enabled.You can enable layout management for the following objects:
- dialog bars
- property sheets
- form views
A class, for which layout management is enabled, is called "host window". Its child controls are anchored to its edges. You can also specify a distance between controls and edges, and "move type", which defines how a child control is repositioned when its host is resized.
