Thanks for the link. I was able to get it working by placing all the widgets
in the dock widget into a container frame placed in a vertical layout. That
part done in Designer. Then in the application I place the custom lable
widget with reimplimented sizeHint function at the bottom as a blank field
so it just serves as a spacer with 0 height.
