Hi EOTR

Each type of MobGUI control responds differently to alt-double click, for example tab buttons get wider to fill the space, left buttons align themselves 10 pixels in from the left of the stack and buttons are horizontally centered.

The MobGUI documentation explains how each control type responds to alt-double click in the entry for the control.

I hope that helps.

Kind regards
