Possible Bug? Group Widths Not Updating

Is anybody having issues with updating the width values of groups?  I setup a group with a width of 550, but it still shows at 5.  I've tried various browsers and even published the app so see if the issue was only occuring in the Web Studio.

Hi @RyanXExner ,

I've made a similar test and meet the same problem.

I insert 2 buttons, set them as a group, insert a label,set the label's Text: Group1.Width

If I set the group's Width to 550, the label will display 5.  (same as yours)

However, I also found that, if I set the label's Text: Button1.Width or Button2.Width.

The label will display 550.

So I've searched a lot of infrmation about this, and found that:

 If you changed the value of a classic Group property, it was set on each of the children controls.

That means that even if you changed the group's width, the value of Group.Width will not change.

Actually, you've set all the chirden controls' width.

To sum up, that's not a bug, you just need to change the label's Text to a control's Width.

Here's a doc about it for your reference:
