Hi, I am trying to build a web page to display map and legend / some of my custom widgets that I planed. currently the map and custom widget show up ok, but I use border layout and try to put map in the left and leave a place in right panel and will put legend and my custom widget in it. But two content pane always on top of each other even though I specified region is "center" and "right".

Can anyone point out for me what I did wrong here. I appreciate any of input. See the codes below.
