Super cool. I missed that in the v6.2 Release Notes when it appeared -
thanks for pointing it out.
As long as we're exploring methods for encapsulating resizing, what are
the odds this enhancement you submitted may be implemented in v9?:
ANOMALY: Messages are blocked if a control is disabled
I very much appreciate your submitting that one.
Without that it can be quite cumbersome to write extra blocks of code to
explicitly send those messages if a group is disabled. But once in
