#563 closed enhancement (wontfix)

LayoutPane cannot size itself based on it's content

In the example, changing the text sizes does not cause the layout pane to resize itself. In fact, when loading content in dynamically, if the new content is much larger than the previous content, the results will be clipped. This behaviour can be seen in both FF and IE by: choosing the smallest text size refresh the browser to ask the LayoutPane? to resize itself choose the largest text size

You can notice that splitpane bar position never moves. This isn't so much of a problem in the test harness, but this behaviour is wrong for applications with liquid layouts.

Summary: ContentPane does not resize itself in layout when content changes (or when text size changes)LayoutPane cannot size itself based on it's content
Type: defectenhancement

You can specify style="overflow: auto" on the content pane so you get a scrollbar.

But, you have to specify an explicit size for LayoutPane? (and SplitPane? and TabPane?, etc.). It's a design limitation.

Changing this to an enhancement request. Not sure if it's possible though (since the LayoutPane? doesn't have anyway of knowing when the font size has changed).

Layout widgets aren't supposed to do this. If you want dynamic sizing use a plain <div>. Sorry, closing this.
