    I have tried every combination of Horizontal Layout Group (HLG) and Layout Element settings I can think of, and have failed miserably to get a number of buttons (contained in a prefab) to stretch as I would like.

    Here is my setup: a Vertical Layout Group with 3 Game Objects. The third is a HLG with up to 4 Prefab buttons.

    In code, I show between 2 and 4 buttons. The buttons spread out as expected across the HLG. But the size doesn't change. When I look at the widths, the prefab holding the button stretches as expected. But the button in the prefab doesn't resize.

    The prefab has a Layout Element with Flexible Width enabled. The button also has a Layout Element with Flexible Width enabled.

    What is the correct way to set this up?
