Re: Window resizing event

NNTP-Posting-Host:  67.102.65.50

Speaking of, I'll bet you a dime and a half that the reason pep wants
events during window resizing is because the Win32 resizer elements
don't respect the min-width and min-height values on a window element.
And if the box model wants to make a reflow "just happen" that causes
the min-width to grow larger than the current window size, the internal
box just happily grows itself to be larger than the OS window and a
bunch of my UI gets clipped off the left hand side.

So, is there any way to prevent the kind of "it just happens" that just
happens to mess up the user experience at the same time?  In win32
land, these constraints are usually implemented by responding to the
WM_GETMINMAXINFO message that the OS sends right before a window's size
changes.

Either that, or I missed an extra magic attribute somewhere that tells
the OS and the top box they need to stay in sync with each other's
min/max values.
