VLayoutView can be a parent to other views, and it automatically arranges its child views in vertical order, expanding their width to its own bounds. Only the height of the children is relevant.
When arranging its children, VLayoutView takes the values of their 'minHeight' and 'maxHeight' properties into account. This is useful when a child's resize mode is set to 4, 5, or 6. See examples below.
VLayoutView inherits some useful formatting methods from its superclasses.
