    Default vbox inside hbox has 0 height

    I'm having trouble getting a vbox panel inside of an hbox panel to show up. The vbox panel always has 0 height regardless of its children. I've reduced it to a simple example that illustrates the issue

    items: [{
       layout: 'hbox',
       items: [{
          layout: 'vbox',
          items: [{
                html: 'left-top'
                html: 'left-bottom'
             html: 'center'
             html: 'right'
    The center and right panels are visible, but the left panel has 0 height. Giving it a fixed height works, but is not an option since the content is dynamic.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    HBox and VBox layouts do not support auto heighting so you must specify a height. Whether this is the height config, flex or within the layout config.
