Re: ResizableLib

The AVOS and AVTS server dialogs are now resizable, and maximizable.  More dialogs to come...  All these will be in GEMS 1-19 series.

A customer has asked why the maximize button on the upload results window in GEMS 1-11-8 is not active.  (Nor is it active in any other GEMS version that I know of.)
Is there a specific reason for this? 
Modeless dialogs can be minimized but not resized.  Its just the way Windows works.  Maximize is just a special case of resize.
Now, there is the fair question of whether the dialog should be resizable.  Anything is possible, and it probably would be nice, especially if you have thousands of machines.  Unfortunately, making it resizable isn't as simple as saying it.  Windows doesn't have any built-in functionality for resizing dialogs.  Open a few dialogs in other programs, and try to resize them.
