Making a model scaleable using parameters

Hey guys,

I'm new with Solidworks (since this week) and i'm trying to figure out a lot of stuff. So far it goes great, however i have this one challenge:


I want to create an object with diffrent parts (let's say for example a cube with a smaller cube stacked on top of it). Now i want to stretch the cube into a rectangle:

versoe 1.PNGversoe 2.PNG

The yellow part is ''stretchable'' so to speak. So if i ever want to give the object more width i can simply select the object and ''stretch'' it to the desired measurement. In the old AutoCAD days u could make a block with a stretchable side. Is this also possible in Solidworks? So if i fill in this parameter or change it from 1>2 it stretches out, making a rectangle.

Advice and tips are welcome!
