This property is applicable only for direct children of auto-layout frames. Determines whether a layer's size and position should be dermined by auto-layout settings or manually adjustable.


layoutPositioning: 'AUTO' | 'ABSOLUTE'


Changing this property may cause the parent layer's size to change, since it will recalculate as if this child did not exist. It will also change this node's x, y, and relativeTransform properties.

  • The default value of "AUTO" will layout this child according to auto-layout rules.
  • Setting "ABSOLUTE" will take this child out of auto-layout flow, while still nesting inside the auto-layout frame. This allows explicitly setting x, y, width, and height. "ABSOLUTE" positioned nodes respect constraint settings.
