For most of LC/Rev/MC's life, the resizeControl message was consistently
sent only after the user stopped performing a resize action with the
But in v3.5 RunRev introduced behaviors and some new enhancements to
group objects to allow folks to make custom controls like the DataGrid.
In addition to being sent continuously as the control is resized (to
allow your custom control to adjust its contents), that message is also
sent to the control whenever it's resized by any means, such as a script
adjusting its rect, rather than strictly when the user is interacting
with it using the pointer tool.
Useful as these enhancements are, it seems they're described only in the
engine change log and the Dictionary entry for the resizeControl message
hasn't been updated.
Anyone here got time to either add a user comment to that entry and/or
file a documentation bug report at the RQCC?
