    Default bested layouts or explicit css positioning

    Hi;
    I have a rather large view with many simple components (custom ones).
    in order to achieve the layout I need I have to use a rather complex use of sencha nested layouts. my alternative is just to place the components using css positioning.
    the explicit positioning is much easier to do, less flexible maybe, but still easy.
    what would you guys suggest in such cases?
    thanks

    Nesting things too much will degrade performance so if you have to do it too much then I would suggest using your own CSS. For instance, I see many people using hbox and vbox a lot to get a grid structure but the browsers have some performance issues handling the box layouts.
