Since some time I've converted to a huge fan of LCL's autosize feature ^^

Also as my current phone has basically the same structure (portrait

I thought more in the terms of using the treeview component provided by 
fpGUI (Graeme?)... especially as I only need it working for two apps and 
thus it's rather likely that I'll implement only the features needed.
