maxWidth resizes but not maxHeight - Which is right?

Hi Tom,

The maxHeight and maxWidth don't change the stack's size immediately.  
These properties only affect the actual window size if the user  
resizes the window manually. So, at the moment when you press the  
button, your script does nothing. Only if the user has manually set  
the height to the mexHeight, the script will have an effect the *next*  
time the user resizes the window. What do you need this script for?

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
