How to prevent Controls from growing in a scene

Any Control has a property grow_direction in case it is given larger contents than its Rect. I would rather like to fix the Rect of a Control (as a ScrollContainer looks like), but there is no such option in grow_direction. I am wondering what rect_clip_content does now.

To be more specific, I am using a VBoxContainer as a text log of events (each log is, say, an HBoxContainer). When too many logs are created, the container grows automatically according to grow_direction, even though rect_clip_content is turned on. This is not what I want.

Could I fix Rect of any general Control?
