Does anybody know of a library in c# that will aid in making resizable
dialogs?

Layout managers are fairly easy to create. If you want a sample of a layout
manager in action then you
can examine my PDDrop code that I've placed on Project Distributor. I made the
layout manager to
allow me an easier time laying out my forms. Some simple changes can provide
better features and I'm
more than happy to split the layout manager code into a separate project and
start supporting it.

The application itself won't matter much to you, but the layout features may.
Again, let me know and I
can split it out and support it.

Looks like anchor points will do the trick. I didn't know visual studio
already had this ability.

thanks for the reply Justin.

Anchor points only allow for you to dynamically resize or move a
single control within any vertical or horizontal layer. This is heavily
limiting, especially if you want a feature like growing two controls
that are side by side and maintaining 50% of the space and a given
separate of say 5 pixels from the edge and 5 in between.

The layout controls in Whidbey are a bit better, but still lack some
basic functionality in my opinion (like justification). Here is a focus
on some different types of layouts and their shortcomings.
