What I'm saying isn't exactly that. What I'm saying is, for instance, if I change the height of the first child of the VBox than the other children below would re-position themselves.
-VBox- - ------- - - c1 - - - - - - - - ------- - - ------- - - c2 - - ------- - - ------- - - c3 - - - - - ------- First child (c1) gets smaller. Result - c2 and c3 move up automatically (and the height of the VBox would also get smaller automatically): -VBox- - ------- - - c1 - - ------- - - ------- - - c2 - - ------- - - ------- - - c3 - - - - - ------- Thanks, On Thu, Apr 3, 2014 at 5:29 PM, Jasper Potts <jasper.po...@oracle.com>wrote: > VBox preferred size will grow if one of its children's preferred sizes > grows.
