I am having a hard time wrapping my head around setting up the relationship between a view and a panel when the view must be scrolled (using Scrollview2D). I am designing for the small screen (320 x 480) and I get it to work correctly there, but when I go to a larger screen (Nexus 7 for example) it just does not look right.

It seems that the panel must exceed the dimensions of the view to enable scrolling. Studying the example program(s) has not made it any clearer for me. If the screen is big enough that you don't need to scroll should they panel and view be the same size? Is there a rule about the relationship of the view and panel when you need scrolling?

Color me confused.
