This is a NewtonScript proto that allows programmers an easy way to create
views that can be intuitively resized by the user. I have included a
sample package which uses several resize boxes in different ways. In this
way, you can easily see how the protoResizeBox feels & reacts with
different settings, and the different design issues to be considered.
(clipping problems in particular - a good scrolling setup would usually be
an ideal solution)
The demo program is a simple little thing that allows you to add polygons
to a main view & then move them around. The views include a
protoResizeBox, and some have multiple protoResizeBoxes. This shows how
the different justifications of the protoResizeBox change its behavior.

Any 2.0 Newton system should be capable of running the demo package, and
protoResizeBox may be capable of running on older systems with some
modification. I want to move on to other projects.
It's not my fault if anything goes wrong! Tell me about it though, I will
try to keep it from happening again.
I hereby release this proto as freeware. As long as I get due credit for
the proto, I will be happy. Please inform me of inclusion on any CDs or
other mass distribution.
