Custom Container Control and availabe screen size

Hi folks,

When you instantiate a custom control then you need to pass the name of the container screen object that you have added to that particular screen with the screen painter.

I am wondering how you can actual achieve that the complete available screen is being used by that control ...

If I define a container object in the screen painter I have to give it a fixed dimension - if a user with a higher screen resolution uses my transaction then a part of the screen is not being used as I have no control over the actual size of the container ...

Is there a solution for this? I have looked at all the methods of the custom container class and its superclasses but I haven't found anything usefull ...

    Make the object big (say, 240x200).

    Set the resizing attributes (vertical and horizontal)

    Set Min lines Min columns to a low value (say 5)
