If you have a small set of possible groups sizes, small enough so that you
can choose among them with a radio control, then what you want to do can be
done easily.  But, I am fairly certain there is not an _easy_ way to capture
the numeric value of a control and use it to modify the appearance of a
dialog window.  I suspect there may be a complicated way it can be done by
invoking an .ado and/or by using some of the non-public features of the
dialog language, but you will need to go to StataCorp for the details; they
helped me do something similar, though not identical to what you want.
