Good Morning all,

I was recently asked by the QA dept if there was a rule to define the
maximum size of a dialog box? And that would work for all environments.?
Some of our dialog boxes are so big that on some machines (Unix/Linux),
the users can't see the entire dialog box. These are not resizable

I am working with development to move things around, but for the would be nice to tell them you cannot exceed x by y. Any one
faced these issues? Any pointers,
