Center a Control on a Form in .NET

It turns out to be very easy to center a control on a .NET form. Just un-anchor the control from any side and it will center from its position. If you just un-anchor from the left and right it will center horizontally, and if you just un-anchor from the top and bottom, it will center vertically. Un-anchor from all sides and it will center on the form.

this is indeed the correct way to do, but you forgot to mention how you center the form in the design view.

the correct steps are:
- select control
- remove anchors
- click in the toolbar on 'format' - 'center in form' and choose vertically and/or horizontally
