Actually I still do not fully understand the question. I thought
what Trent wants is the ability of resizing a form without
resizing the objects, which is achieved, as you pointed out,
by changing the object gravity. Wheather a form is resizeable or not
is completely determined at the "show" time, so I am kind of
confused about the behavior of gravity affecting the resizebility
of the form. Of course if what is wanted is changing object's
resizeabilty back'n forth, your code is the most direct way to
do it.
