Dynamically resize subforms

P: n/a

What I'd like to do display a form that consists of subforms, and
allow a user to resize the sections of a form at will.

For example, if a form has three subforms, each placed vertically and
using a 1/3 of the width, I'd like the user to be able to grab and
drag the edge of one subform to increase/decrease the width of that
subform and decrease/increase the width of the adjacent subform.

Is this doable in Access? Does anyone know of sample code to
accomplish this?

Perhaps a tab control would be able to show full-width view of each
subform?
