Jetpack Compose: Row with all items same height

Issue

I’m trying to implement a layout in Compose where the items of a horizontally scrollable Row should all have the same height, so smaller items should adjust to the size of the biggest item in the row. I know about intrinsic size but I just can’t get it to work. Also I don’t want to assign a fixed height to the Row, as the Row’s height should also be the height of its biggest child composable.

This is the simplified layout

@Composable
fun Screen(
    modifier: Modifier = Modifier,
) {
    Row(
        modifier = modifier
            .height(IntrinsicSize.Min)
            .horizontalScroll(state = rememberScrollState()),
        horizontalArrangement = Arrangement.spacedBy(10.dp),
    ) {
        Item(
            text = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy " +
                    "eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam"
        )

        Item(
            text = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy " +
                    "eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam " +
                    "voluptua. At"
        )

        Item(
            text = "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam"
        )
    }
}

@Composable
private fun Item(
    modifier: Modifier = Modifier,
    text: String,
) {
    Column(
        modifier = modifier.width(200.dp),
        horizontalAlignment = Alignment.End,
        verticalArrangement = Arrangement.SpaceBetween
    ) {
        Column {
            Text("Some static text")

            // Dynamic text
            Text(
                text,
                modifier = Modifier.padding(top = 5.dp)
            )
        }

        // The space between these two composables should be flexible,
        // hence the outer column with Arrangement.SpaceBetween

        Button(
            modifier = Modifier.padding(top = 20.dp),
            onClick = {}
        ) {
            Text("Button")
        }
    }
}

This is the result

what I get

but what I actually want is

what I want

When I apply fillMaxHeight() to Item, the items take up the whole height and all buttons are aligned to the bottom of the screen.

Jetpack Compose version: 1.1.0

Solution

The described behaviour is a bug in Compose which I reported on Feb 11, 2022. It was marked as fixed on Aug 13, 2022. However it is yet unknown which Compose version will contain this fix.
