I asked this exact question on StackOverflow a couple of weeks ago and before I was attacked by Mark for not asking the question he answered we were getting somewhere... I did create solution that works by retaining an offset for the child objects to use in their resizing.


Anyway... all will be revealed at the conference on Tuesday

This is on mobile and I need to resize a scrolling group based on the position of the UI (navbar and toolbar when in portrait and landscape) when the UI changes and then after the scrolling group is right I then need to separately resize the contents for retina if needed -- to double their height, width and topleft -- or regular.
