ranchers,
i'm getting ready to upload my assignment. thanks to everyone who has helped out with their postings and replies.
my ui seems to handle resizing fine in that the controls therein remain visible and usable and they hold their relative position to one another.
an "extreme" resizing directive will cause some controls to no longer appear, but we're talking about someone grabbing the window border and really smashing the viewable area down the point that the app would not be usable anyway.
even if this sort of resizing is extreme, is the behavior observed (the controls no longer being rendered until the window again is upsized and has breathing room) ok w/ the evaluators? the window behaves just fine for more moderate resizing directives.

Seems fine to me - an alternative is to make it impossible to resize the window below a minimum usable size

thanks, ben! that's a great idea! i figured that disallowing resizing altogether would draw fire from the evaluators. your solution would be perfect.
