Humm. It's pretty clear that the author of IDLgrLegend
was *trying* to solve this problem in the ComputeDimensions
method. Have you tried using this when you resize or change
to another destination device? It looks to me like this
would solve all your problems, although I confess I've
never used IDLgrLegend.
