[PyQt] Help on resizing a custom widget

P: n/a
Ok, here's what's going on. I've just created a custom widget. it
works great. I'm having some trouble, however, figuring out how to
allow the said widget to resize. For example, when I throw the widget
into a new dialog (using Qt Designer), I want to be able to drag it
larger/smaller and have widget expand/shrink to that size. Right now,
I can drag the widget bigger/smaller all I want, but it doesn't
actually change size.

I'm pretty new to PyQt (and therefore, Qt), so I'm pretty sure that
the answer is a property that needs to be set somewhere. I'm just not
sure which one. So you know, I'm using Python 2.4.3 and PyQt 3.1.6.

Any help and suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I'll take a look at it.
