How can I resize a
Surface object in Pygame? Is there a way to bind a surface object into a
Rect object, so that resizing the rect would also resize the surface (with
Rect.inflate_ip method for an example)?
There's no way to do this automatically, so if you want some sort of automation for the surface rescaling, you'd need to write your own wrapper class around
pygame.Rect, that owns a rectangle, and takes in a surface, and resizes the surface when a method of the wrapper is called.
The resizing function you are looking for is
pygame.transform.scale. Pass it a surface and the new size you want, and it will return a new surface, or place the result into an already created surface (this is faster).
