Geometry Manager tutorial?

That's why I have made NativeGeometry, to keep the simplicity of the
geometry manager without the bonkers ;)

Best,

I suggest to use both the preopenstack and resizestack messages. I also
suggest not to use the geometry manager. sooner or later it goes bonkers,
and moves a control into a million negative pixel position, or some such.

Setting these properties, makes you able to resize anything however you
like:
rectangle
topleft
bottomright
location
left
bottom
width
height
etc...

Note: The working rectangle (so to say) is the card, and not the stack:
lock screen
set the width of field "first" to the width of this card
set the topleft of field "first" to the topleft of this card

Finally, don't forget that grouping controls, as well as lock screen, can
make things easier and quicker for you.

the geometry manager work for this?
