Can you not disable the autoPositionning in the dragDrop event listner just before you do a addchild ?
Actually, there is no autoPositionning property for a Panel, there is autoLayout which I already set to false when I create my Panel.
I've just tried to set it to false again in the dragDrop event handler just before adding the child but it doesn't change anything :S
Right, the panel acts as a VBox when it comes to positioning, one alternate approach would be to add a canvas inside of your panel and you can position your components where ever you want inside the canvas...set the height and width of the canvas to 100%
Yeah I just read on the livedoc about the Canvas container :
"It is the only container that lets you explicitly specify the location of its children within the container by using the
yproperties of each child. "
I guess I don't have the choice!
