Yes, it will even adjust on the fly. Picking e.g. another scheme,
and the width of the window will probably change.

This is not necessarily true for list-like widgets, for which a
width (and height) can be specified. Instead, I have made such
widgets resizable.

may be better, the button text switching appropriately.
