Size Constraints

The Layout Control applies certain default size constraints to its items, which are dependent on the types of embedded controls. You can also apply custom size constraints.

Size constraints allow you to handle how layout items are resized during the LayoutControl's resize operations. For instance, you can specify that an item's width/height can only lie within a particular range. Or you can allow free sizing for a layout item vertically and/or horizontally.

See the links below for more information.
