    Default Component's Height

    I have a long list of items defined using a simple div structure and put them into a component, which has been configured to scroll vertically, like so...
    var listHtml = "<div>item 1</div><div>item 2</div><div>item 3</div><div>item 4</div>...<div>item 50</div>"
        var listPanel = new Ext.Component(
                    layout: { type: 'vbox' },
                    scroll: 'vertical',
                    html: listHtml,
                    title: 'title'
    The component itself is on a tabbed panel.

    If I don't set a height on the Component, then I only can only scroll to get the first say 10 items. On setting a height I can scroll to the bottom of the list.

    The problem I've got is that if I set the height to be suitable for an iPhone, then the list is too long/short for other devices. Equally if i change the orientation, the height is wrong.

    On the tabbed panel there is a property that can be set "fullscreen: true" which forces it to fill the available height. Is there a similar property that I can set on the component to achieve this?

    Or do i need to write some code to look at the device's screen size and orientation in order to figure out how big to make the component's height?

    By putting an item inside a tab panel, the card is automatically sized to the height of the tab panel:

        onReady: function(){
            var main = new Ext.TabPanel({
                fullscreen: true,
                items: [{
                    title: 'Foo',
                    html: 'Foo'
            }, 1000);
