Container to Stretch Vertically with resizing of content -Whats the best layout to use?

Basically I'm creating a comment box similar to the one they have in facebook.
It will contain a main Comment - then sub comments.
My issue is that when a user adds a comment I want to overall component to resize (vertically) to make room for the new comment.
One obvious option is to just get the height of the new comment area and resize the container but there seems like there should be a more trivial way of doing this.
Currently I have a DockLayoutPanel -
West - is just a user icon - I want that space
North - is the main comment
Center - is a VerticalLayout - I was hoping that as the verticallayout panel is populated the whole component would resize.
NOTE: this docklayout panel -i.e. the whole component is in a scrollpane - I want several of these components...
