This little script is not only useful to resize controls like buttons or
fields, but also for graphics objects like lines, rectangles, etc that as
you know requires more accuracy. Never thought when I wrote this script that
it could be integrated to a biggest project. I'm really honored, thank you.
8) It's now yours and the property of all the community. You can make it
follow the destiny that you want. ;) Since, I have integrated a feature to
stop the resize when the bottom right corner is not within the limits of the
card. Just a line in fact. ;)

You're welcome 8)
