2) Add Scroller to Canvas. ( get an ilayout related error when I try
3) Have Canvas Constraints dynamically change with the screen size.
(live binding does not work here. So I presume 4) everytime the canvas

key with nothing selected an exception is raised.

needs. But it works well.

Please and thank you for any help anyone can give.

created progmaitcally after fail to delete, even though they are the
same object path.
