You can see examples of custom layers in the source:
In the near future, more and simpler examples will be provided in the example.
The Preview Layer is, usually, used for graphical-only widgets, although it accepts any
Widget. The canvas is limited to the preview area, so if the preview aspect ratio is different from the device's aspect ratio, the canvas will not include the black area.
