If you want to read about a technique for resizing fields and font  
sizes within those fields on a window, I wrote an article for Omnis  
Tech News back in 2003 that did this on a resize of the window  
instance. The article can be found here:


There is also a demonstration library for that technique on my  
OmnisTraining web site. Just go to:


and click on the "Demonstration Libraries" link in the sidebar on the  
left - then scroll down the main frame.
