I wanted something like this:


With the hierarcy above, I wanted to set the TextureRect's size on my own, not by the HBoxContainer. But I also want to use the HBoxContainer's behavior to layout it's children horizontally.

In other words, the TextureRect should have a fixed transform size of (40, 40) and the Label size is dynamically sized based on it's text content. Just like flexbox in HTML, the parent size should match it's childrens.
