Suggestion: OlForm sizes with/without Reading Pane shown?

Hi Guys,

I like the way the Outlook Forms remember their sizes, as that was something I had to handle in my code before.

But would it be possible in a future release to store two heights/widths sets based on if the Reading Pane is being displayed or not.

I have many users of my ADX enabled product that flip between their Inbox folder (with Reading Pane shown) and the Calendar view - when they do this they find that the outlook form is now too big (because there is no Reading Pane on the Calendar). This then causes them to resize the form, and of course when they flip back to a view that does shows the Reading Pane it's all too big. Repeat. Loop. etc.

I know that if Splitter=None then I can set/store the sizes myself in code, but it seems like a shame to do this - especially as I like the minimizer/resizing capability when the splitter is shown?

Just a suggestion for a future feature tweak.
