Hi Everyone
I'm using a timer to shink a form, i've got it working now, but I don't understand why it didn't work is the first place, or why my change made it work!!???!!!
in line 38 of my code

this.Width -= 30;

the 30 was originally 10, the form would try shrink then almost get stuck( My best description)
Anyway i've attached the solution if anybody out there knows the answer PLEASE enlighten me
thanks

Couldn't read the solution, but for this kinda thing you might want to give WPF a shot. It has an animations engine that can handle this sort of thing with a breeze.
