It appears that users are unable to order widgets within a grid panel so as to set what widget that would like to be in the front. The layer option in the details panel says that it affects draw order, however it does not appear to have affect on the order in which the widgets are drawn.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open the editor
  2. Create a new widget blueprint
  3. Delete the canvas panel in the designer tab
  4. Add a grid panel to the designer tab
  5. Add an image, a border, and a text block to the grid panel (so that they are all stacked on top of each other)
  6. Notice that no matter how they are added or what their layer settings may be that they are always drawn in the order of Text on top, Border in the middle, and image at the bottom (Colors will need to be changed to make this easier to see)

Expected: Setting the layer option for widgets in a grid panel would move them forward or backward in rendering order
Result: Certain widgets always appear in front of others
