    ViewStack width

    SiHoop Level 1

      In the following code, I place an image into a Canvas. The Canvas is inside a ViewSatck. The idea is that the image should expand to the full width of the screen. However, it only expands to the width of the ViewStack.

      My problem is that I do not understand why the ViewStack does not take up the full width of the stage. You will see when it runs that there is a red border around the ViewStack. Why is there a gap of approximately 10 pixels between the ViewStack and the stage and how do I get rid of it without entering an absolute value?
