I'm having trouble figuring out how large to make the layout in order to fill the nest provided by the TabCtrl widget. Somehow I need to get this so I can use the layout editor to setup pages for TabCtrl.

My first thought was to make the layout page a different color so I could at least see how much geometry was used, but I couldn't figure out how to make the layout a different color.

Any help is appreciated.

It is the best, to strech your layout to have a fixed margin within its container (tab):
const int m = 4;
your_layout.HSizePosZ(m, m).VSizePosZ(m, m);

And it is a good idea to use your layout as a ParentCtrl child, like WithYourLayout<ParentCtrl>. So it will not have a different color than the tab.
