Allow adding DataTable Control into Layout Container control

Would you be so kind to add the DataTable as a possible child to the Container LayOut controls?

Really? How can it not already be! 😭 One goes to all the hard work to set out a responsive layout to find out that not all elements will work. I mean seriously...

Er.... So all I did was add the DataTable to the form and then set the x, y, width and height props to the 'parent' container's x, y, width and height values.... (e.g. Height = MainSectionContainer1_3.Height). Seems to work. I do wonder why this is isn't natively supported MSFT... 🤔

 I noticed this is working since last week. Try a few times, because every time it drops inside of the container.

This is very frustrating

Container must accept any other control inside, even another Container.

This is still not working. Adding a DataTable to a Container control (i.e. when the Container is the currently selected control) - either by the Insert menu or Copy/Paste does NOT work correctly. It results in the DataTable being inserted as a sibling of the Container.  As an aside, Gallery controls work correctly.

I was able to add DataTabe into Container like this:

1. Add a Gallery under Container.

2. Without selecting the Data Source of Gallery but let the Gallery be selected, add DataTable. It will now become Container child.

3. Remove Gallery later.
