Sorry but no - still gives the same error.

But I've tried a slightly different tack of setting the .MinimumWidth
property rather than .Width (which should still do what I need to do).

If I set the .MinimumWidth = 100 ' (px)

then all runs fine. But if I set:

..MinimumWidth = 120

then the NRE exception gets thrown!

Bizarre! (But I'm having to use VB2005 currently and so this
(presumed) bug was maybe fixed in VB2008/2010?)
