#844 ooDialog - move() and resize() methods broken

ooDialog (58)

In ooDialog there are methods to move a dialog (or dialog control) and methods to resize a dialog (or dialog control). These methods are broken and neither resize nor move correctly.

Attached is an example program that demostrates this. By using the program along with Microsoft's Spy++ which shows the actual size and position of any window on the system it is easily verified that resizing or moving dialogs under ooRexx 4.0.0 and earlier does not produce correct results. Even if Spy++ is not available, the example program prints out the expected size or new position and the actual. This also shows that the results are incorrect.

    This is fixed in trunk by the addition of the moveTo() and resizeTo() methods which work correctly. These methods will be in the next major release of ooDialog

    This fix will be in the next major release of ooDialog, but not in the ooRexx 4.1.0 release.

    This fix will appear in the next major release of ooDialog, it will not be included in an ooRexx bug fix release
