I try to set a ListBox, TreeBox, or TableBox to a size so the scroll bars don`t show.
Adjust the width of the GUI and it`s size jumps back and forth the size of the vert. scroll.
This then triggers the hoz. scroll bar to appear also as the vert. scroll bar took up the space.
With plenty of space, make the width size 1 number smaller and the vert. scroll bar appears.
So some of the gtkDialog boxes will never give up the space needed for the vert. scroll bar.

This behavior could be related to the gtk version and may differ from one major version to another.

Hi technosaurus ; I didn`t bother to go back and try, but I seem to recall this years ago.
So it`s likely that gtkDialog2 and maybe gtkDialog1 have the same issue also.
The only possibility for a fix would be something like: <table no_vert_scroll>

sorry, I meant the actual gtk+ package not the gtkdialog version, have you tried it with gtk-2.18.X?

I hadn`t thought of that technosaurus, but for an app. like DriveMan it would complicate it?
I assume that any Puppy distro. using DriveMan would have to install gtk-2.18.X ? Dicey...

but may be yet another reason to jump to a higher version of gtk in base - there has been some discussion of additional functionality with later versions as well
