Scout (or probably SWT/Swing) are pretty good at adjusting element sizes and positions when resizing form windows as long as resizing means increasing the size of a form.|
However, when making a form smaller by dragging on its edge, elements that no longer fit just disappear. This is not acceptable behaviour in our application so I'm looking at ways to solve this issue.
I can think if two methods to use in this situation:
- add scroll bars to the form, so the user can scroll down to the "hidden" elements on the form
-> is it possible to have these scrollbars automatically added to the form when needed? If not, is it possible to add them explicitely?
- lock the form window size, so the user cannot make it too small to fit all elements.
-> is this possible? If yes, how would I do this?
How are others solving this issue in their applications?
