I don't know what you were doing, but normally the components do not 
move and resize, they remain at their position relative to the top and 
left edges of their parent. If - as the title of your message suggests - 
you misconfigured ChildSizing you should set ChildSizing.Layout to 
cclNone (for the Parent), and all controls should be movable again.
