class Gtk::BoxLayout


GtkBoxLayout is a layout manager that arranges children in a single row or column.

Whether it is a row or column depends on the value of its Gtk::Orientable#orientation property. Within the other dimension all children all allocated the same size. The GtkBoxLayout will respect the Gtk::Widget#halign and Gtk::Widget#valign properties of each child widget.

If you want all children to be assigned the same size, you can use the Gtk::BoxLayout#homogeneous property.

If you want to specify the amount of space placed between each child, you can use the Gtk::BoxLayout#spacing property.

Constructor Detail

def : Gtk::Orientation) #

Creates a new GtkBoxLayout.

def #

Initialize a new BoxLayout.

def*, baseline_position : Gtk::BaselinePosition? = nil, homogeneous : Bool? = nil, orientation : Gtk::Orientation? = nil, spacing : Int32? = nil) #

Class Method Detail

def self.g_type : UInt64 #

Returns the type id (GType) registered in GLib type system.

Instance Method Detail

def baseline_position : Gtk::BaselinePosition #

Gets the value set by gtk_box_layout_set_baseline_position().

def baseline_position=(position : Gtk::BaselinePosition) : Nil #

Sets the baseline position of a box layout.

The baseline position affects only horizontal boxes with at least one baseline aligned child. If there is more vertical space available than requested, and the baseline is not allocated by the parent then the given @position is used to allocate the baseline within the extra space available.

def homogeneous : Bool #

Returns whether the layout is set to be homogeneous.

def homogeneous=(homogeneous : Bool) : Nil #

Sets whether the box layout will allocate the same size to all children.

def homogeneous? : Bool #

def spacing : UInt32 #

Returns the space that @box_layout puts between children.

def spacing=(value : Int32) : Int32 #

def spacing=(spacing : UInt32) : Nil #

Sets how much spacing to put between children.
