When a control is displayed within a LayoutControl, you can use the AutoWidthInLayoutControl property to enable the auto-width feature. In this instance, the control's width is changed to display the control's text in its entirety.

The layout control allows you to set size constraints for controls, specifying the range in which the control's size can vary. See the Size Constraints topic, for more information.


The following code shows how to enable the auto-width feature for a SimpleButton within a LayoutControl and center this button within the corresponding layout item:
