Resizing window problems.

Ok, here's my setup:

I have a program in which the main window consists of the following:

3 list boxes
1 edit box
2 buttons.

2 of the list boxes are stacked on top of each other, the third runs the height of the first two, but is along the right edge.

The edit box runs along the bottom of this entire mess
the buttons are below the edit box.

Ok, first off - the problems is with resizing the list boxes.

I can change the size of the window via dragging the corner (duh;) and I have it so that it will lock to a minimum screen size.

The list boxes are resizing, BUT:

they jump.

Instead of resizing gracefully, leaving the same gap between the boxes, they jump what appears to be an entire character size each time.

Is there a way to change this so I can have them looking nice and maintaining my spacing?  Mostly because I have text between each of the listbox and edit box windows, and the spacing keeps screwing that up, sometimes it looks correct, other times, well, half the words are covered.

here is my wm_size case:

     case WM_SIZE:
          SendMessage(hStatus, WM_SIZE, 0, 0);

          GetWindowRect(hStatus, &rcStatusBar);
         iStatusHeight = rcStatusBar.bottom - rcStatusBar.top;

         GetClientRect(hwnd, &rcMainWnd);
         iMainHeight = rcMainWnd.bottom - iStatusHeight-100;

          siListWidth = rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET;
          siAdminWidth = rcMainWnd.right -(rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET);

          MoveWindow(hList,0,TOPOFFSET,rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET, iMainHeight-CHATOFFSET,TRUE);
         

          MoveWindow(hServerResponse,0,iMainHeight-SERVEROFFSET,rcMainWnd.right-rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET,
               95, TRUE);

         
          MoveWindow(hChatters,rcMainWnd.right-rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET,TOPOFFSET,LISTOFFSET, iMainHeight,TRUE);


          MoveWindow(hEditBox,0,iMainHeight+5, rcMainWnd.right-rcMainWnd.left-(LISTOFFSET+20),
               25,TRUE);
     
          MoveWindow(hStart,rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET,iMainHeight,
               rcMainWnd.right -(rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET),     20, TRUE);
          MoveWindow(hStop,rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET,iMainHeight+20,
               rcMainWnd.right -(rcMainWnd.right - rcMainWnd.left-LISTOFFSET),     20, TRUE);
     
          return 0;

You probably need to ensure that your listbox has the VLBS_NOINTEGRALHEIGHT style set.

Hey cool!  I never knew about that attribute!  I always thought that some sort of math had to be done for it in the WMSize.  This makes it much easier!
