There doesn't happen to be a way to use this approach, and somehow embed a
container like a vertical-panel% in the resulting canvas%, is there?

The idea being that I might make a component that uses a canvas to draw a
green border, and then embed other GUI components (say, a series of buttons)
in this newly drawn area.

I've poked around the docs and don't see a way to do it, but I thought I
should get confirmation from the pros.


Have an idea for software? I can make it happen -
