I suppose so - you should be able to manipulate a form's window (though
of course if you do things that the form library thinks it should, there's
always the possibility of confusing it - I wouldn't expect it to know
about wresize(), or assume that it relates text you write to it in terms
of its fields since they're structures overlaid on the window contents).
