4. Click Bottom Left in the Anchoring gallery, click the ContractType text box, click
the Anchoring button, and then click Top Right . The SigningDate and StartDate
controls shifted down, and the ContractType controls shifted to the right.
Next, you’ll open the Navigation Pane, and then increase the height of the form to
simulate the effect of a larger screen for the form.
5. Open the Navigation Pane. The two sets of controls on the left shift to the right,
because the horizontal dimensions of the form decreased from the left, and these
two sets of controls are anchored to the left in the form. The ContractType controls
remain in the same position in the form.
6. Position the pointer on the border between the form and the datasheet until the
pointer changes to a shape, and then drag down until you see only the column
headings and the first row in the datasheet. The bottom set of controls shifts down,
because it’s anchored to the bottom, and the two sets of controls at the top remain
in the same positions in the form. See Figure 6-18.

Finally, you’ll show Sarah one of the anchoring options that resizes the ContractType
text box as the form dimensions change.
7. Click the ContractType text box, click the Anchoring button, and then click
Stretch Down and Right . Because the ContractType text box is already anchored
to the top right, it can’t stretch any more to the right, but it does stretch down to
increase the height of the text box.
8. Position the pointer on the border between the form and the datasheet until the
pointer changes to a shape, and then drag up until you can see several rows in
the datasheet. The bottom set of controls shifts up, and the bottom edge of the
ContractType text box shifts up, reducing its height.
