GUI getting Expanded based on Search

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

I have a query wherein I have a GUI in which I have a find button with a text box in Text box I type something and click on find button then what I expect to happen is the GUI to expand itslef and show the results of the search based on the search list retreived.

Can anyone help me with this regards.

You could use WinMove() to change the size of the GUI and re-size/re-arrange the controls, or it might be simpler to delete the first GUI and create a new one for results, or pop-up the results in a child window. What behavior do you want?
