Hey all,

Yes I was just looking to resize the field that the prof sees purely for 
aesthetic reason. I was trying to make the gui look nicer. Matt's pythonware 
link put me in the right direction.

Thanks for all the responses!

Yes.  Are you looking to resize as the entire app resizes, or to resize as the 
content grows/shrinks?  Are these input boxes editable by the student, or is the 
content solely from the professor?
