I have an application in which the Main Window ('ECMOSimulator') is a DocumentContainer component.

It is populated with elements  - all of which are 'UserControls' (eg 'ECMOSystem').

How do I instantiate such an element programmatically and then set it's size?           

The snippet below opens the element in the container, but does not set the Height and Width.

ECMOSystem ecmoDevice = new ECMOSystem();

ecmoDevice.Height = 400;

ecmoDevice.Width = 800;
