Hi guys

This is a general question to the GXT guys i guess....

Is there likely to be any improvement in the layout techniques in later releases or perhaps any more detailed documentation.

I find it very time prohibitive trying to knock quick screens together for demo purposes. Everything else.. server comms, widget creation, event handling, action listeners and much more are excellent and very quick, but i just find it very diffficult to know which layouts to use and how to use them properly.

For example, RowLayout. I am dynamically adding elements to a layout. If i specify RowLayout(Orientation.Vertical) i then have to specify a height, but why? cause if i dont specify a layout they just fill the section with as much space as they need.

Has anyone else experienced this or is it just me not really getting it (most probably).

THank in advance.
