On the click of a button I shrink the width of a panel. The panel contains a button upper right. Long story short, the button doesn't believe the panel has a new width, even though the effect appears to work - visually the panel shrinks. The button just hangs there out in space to the right of the panel, however, because the "actual" width of the panel is what it originally was prior to the effect.
My impression was that the effect's "widthTo" property '"really" changed the actual width of the component. Am I mistaken? How can the appearance of the panel and it's actual "width" property be out of sync?
