Not for VID (the standard GUI system built-in). The layout system is very simple, in that the LAYOUT function performs a distribution of the faces that are parsed in the dialect. That means, it places them inside an area and organises them in a face object tree, depending on use of panels, buttons, fields, etc. After that, VID can't do much with it, i.e. it's static, can't be resized or moved without poking the face objects directly, which you've probably already been doing. There are some other tricks, like storing a position for later use, that you can use during layout: view layout [ button "my button" here: guide box red at here button "on the box" ] I'm not sure if that's useful. -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen
