Remarks

In UseMinSizeAndGrow mode, the embedded LayoutControl's minimum size is limited; it is calculated based on the size constraints of child layout items and can be obtained by reading the root group's LayoutGroup.MinSize property. The LayoutControl maximum size is unlimited.

If the AutoSizeInLayoutControl property is set to ResizeToMinSize, the embedded LayoutControl's size is fixed and is equal to its minimum size.

If you choose UseMinAndMaxSize mode, the embedded LayoutControl's size can vary between the minimum and maximum sizes, which are returned by the root group's LayoutGroup.MinSize and LayoutGroup.MaxSize properties, respectively.
