Resizing controls on a form

How do I resize all controls on a form when the form is resized, keeping the layout intact?
The easiest way to do this is to dock the controls to the form. From the Form Designer (in Visual Studio.NET), select a control, and then adjust the "Dock" attribute in the Properties view. You are presented with a diagram to select how you want the control to dock to the parent. Do this for all the controls on the form, and they will resize with the parent form.
