I have an application with a dialog box with an embedded
Microsoft Rich Textbox Control, which is used to display
to the user formatted information produced by the application.
As the application generates all the text, the control
is disabled, therefore scroll bars don't work.

The problem is that the amount of text we want to
put in the control varies widely, and we have to
make the control big enough to accomodate the
maximum, which makes the thing look pretty silly
when it winds up being the minimum.

Is there some way I can make a dialog box (including
the embedded Rich Textbox control) resize gracefully?
It's created from a resource.  Or, is there a way
to make scrollbars work in a disabled Rich Textbox
