Dialogs that should be resizable
« on: June 12, 2019, 07:55:07 pm »
As a general rule: Any dialog which can display a dynamic amount of content, or has child controls with scrollbars should always be resizable.

Specifically I am talking about the edit dialog for language formatting.  The preview text box on this dialog is very tiny and ends up with scrollbars so you can see all of the code.  This is tedious, if the dialog was resizable everything would be grand.

Repro Steps:
  • Open Tools -> Options Menu
  • Select Languages -> Application Languages -> C/C++ -> Formatting
  • Click the Edit... button
  • Select Brace Style - > Statement Styles
  • Observe the scrollbars on the bottle left textbox, and the dialog not being resizable

That should be resizable.  I can fix that in a hotfix, but not sure I'll get to it before the next hotfix.
