Force tiledlayout('flow') to layout vertically

The problem I have with tiledlayout('flow') is that it it will often end up arranging the plots in a 2x2 grid, rather than a 4x1.
I understand tiledlayout('flow') tries to keep a 4:3 ratio for plots, but this is not useful for my data.
Tiledlayout(x,1) won't work because I don't know x beforehand.
I had hoped that in the case of tiledlayout(x,1) I could set the GridSize property, but it is read only.
Any suggestions on how to overcome this would be helpful, thank you.

Based on the above information and the documentation of tiledlayout & nexttile, for this particular problem you can make use of the 'nexttile(span)' syntax as follows:
% Let the max number tiles are maxTiles = 1000 (>>n or just >=n)
maxTiles = 1000;
x = linspace(0,30);
tiledlayout('flow')
n = randi([1 10]);
for i=1:n
nexttile([1 maxTiles])
y = rand(1,numel(x));
plot(x,y)
end

Thank you! That does work flawlessly indeed. I did read that documentation before, and I would not have thought to use it in this way.
