gtk.Box



class Box : gtk.Container.Container, gtk.OrientableIF.OrientableIF;
The GtkBox widget organizes child widgets into a rectangular area.

The rectangular area of a GtkBox is organized into either a single row or a single column of child widgets depending upon the orientation. Thus, all children of a GtkBox are allocated one dimension in common, which is the height of a row, or the width of a column.

GtkBox uses a notion of packing. Packing refers to adding widgets with reference to a particular position in a #GtkContainer. For a GtkBox, there are two reference positions: the start and the end of the box. For a vertical #GtkBox, the start is defined as the top of the box and the end is defined as the bottom. For a horizontal #GtkBox the start is defined as the left side and the end is defined as the right side.

Use repeated calls to gtk_box_pack_start() to pack widgets into a GtkBox from start to end. Use gtk_box_pack_end() to add widgets from end to start. You may intersperse these calls and add widgets from both ends of the same GtkBox.

Because GtkBox is a #GtkContainer, you may also use gtk_container_add() to insert widgets into the box, and they will be packed with the default values for expand and fill child properties. Use gtk_container_remove() to remove widgets from the GtkBox.

Use gtk_box_set_homogeneous() to specify whether or not all children of the GtkBox are forced to get the same amount of space.

Use gtk_box_set_spacing() to determine how much space will be minimally placed between all children in the GtkBox. Note that spacing is added between the children, while padding added by gtk_box_pack_start() or gtk_box_pack_end() is added on either side of the widget it belongs to.

Use gtk_box_reorder_child() to move a GtkBox child to a different place in the box.

Use gtk_box_set_child_packing() to reset the expand, fill and padding child properties. Use gtk_box_query_child_packing() to query these fields.

Note that a single-row or single-column #GtkGrid provides exactly the same functionality as #GtkBox.

# CSS nodes

GtkBox uses a single CSS node with name box.

In horizontal orientation, the nodes of the children are always arranged from left to right. So :first-child will always select the leftmost child, regardless of text direction.

protected GtkBox* gtkBox ;
the main Gtk struct

GtkBox* getBoxStruct ();
Get the main Gtk struct

protected void* getStruct ();
the main Gtk struct as a void*

this(GtkBox* gtkBox, bool ownedRef = false);
Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.

static GType getType ();


this(GtkOrientation orientation, int spacing);
Creates a new #GtkBox.

Params:
GtkOrientation orientation the box’s orientation.
int spacing the number of pixels to place by default between children.

Return:
a new #GtkBox.

Since:
3.0

Throws:
ConstructionException GTK+ fails to create the object.

GtkBaselinePosition getBaselinePosition ();
Gets the value set by gtk_box_set_baseline_position().

Return:
the baseline position

Since:
3.10

Widget getCenterWidget ();
Retrieves the center widget of the box.

Return:
the center widget or %NULL in case no center widget is set.

Since:
3.12

bool getHomogeneous ();
Returns whether the box is homogeneous (all children are the same size). See gtk_box_set_homogeneous().

Return:
%TRUE if the box is homogeneous.

int getSpacing ();
Gets the value set by gtk_box_set_spacing().

Return:
spacing between children

void packEnd (Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding);
Adds @child to @box, packed with reference to the end of @box. The @child is packed after (away from end of) any other child packed with reference to the end of @box.

Params:
Widget child the #GtkWidget to be added to @box
bool expand %TRUE if the new child is to be given extra space allocated to @box. The extra space will be divided evenly between all children of @box that use this option
bool fill %TRUE if space given to @child by the @expand option is actually allocated to @child, rather than just padding it. This parameter has no effect if @expand is set to %FALSE. A child is always allocated the full height of a horizontal #GtkBox and the full width of a vertical #GtkBox. This option affects the other dimension
uint padding extra space in pixels to put between this child and its neighbors, over and above the global amount specified by #GtkBox:spacing property. If @child is a widget at one of the reference ends of @box, then @padding pixels are also put between @child and the reference edge of @box

void packStart (Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding);
Adds @child to @box, packed with reference to the start of @box. The @child is packed after any other child packed with reference to the start of @box.

Params:
Widget child the #GtkWidget to be added to @box
bool expand %TRUE if the new child is to be given extra space allocated to @box. The extra space will be divided evenly between all children that use this option
bool fill %TRUE if space given to @child by the @expand option is actually allocated to @child, rather than just padding it. This parameter has no effect if @expand is set to %FALSE. A child is always allocated the full height of a horizontal #GtkBox and the full width of a vertical #GtkBox. This option affects the other dimension
uint padding extra space in pixels to put between this child and its neighbors, over and above the global amount specified by #GtkBox:spacing property. If @child is a widget at one of the reference ends of @box, then @padding pixels are also put between @child and the reference edge of @box

void queryChildPacking (Widget child, out bool expand, out bool fill, out uint padding, out GtkPackType packType);
Obtains information about how @child is packed into @box.

Params:
Widget child the #GtkWidget of the child to query
bool expand pointer to return location for expand child property
bool fill pointer to return location for fill child property
uint padding pointer to return location for padding child property
GtkPackType packType pointer to return location for pack-type child property

void reorderChild (Widget child, int position);
Moves @child to a new @position in the list of @box children. The list contains widgets packed #GTK_PACK_START as well as widgets packed #GTK_PACK_END, in the order that these widgets were added to @box.

A widget’s position in the @box children list determines where the widget is packed into @box. A child widget at some position in the list will be packed just after all other widgets of the same packing type that appear earlier in the list.

Params:
Widget child the #GtkWidget to move
int position the new position for @child in the list of children of @box, starting from 0. If negative, indicates the end of the list

void setBaselinePosition (GtkBaselinePosition position);
Sets the baseline position of a box. This 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 @position is used to allocate the baseline wrt the extra space available.

Params:
GtkBaselinePosition position a #GtkBaselinePosition

Since:
3.10

void setCenterWidget (Widget widget);
Sets a center widget; that is a child widget that will be centered with respect to the full width of the box, even if the children at either side take up different amounts of space.

Params:
Widget widget the widget to center

Since:
3.12

void setChildPacking (Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding, GtkPackType packType);
Sets the way @child is packed into @box.

Params:
Widget child the #GtkWidget of the child to set
bool expand the new value of the expand child property
bool fill the new value of the fill child property
uint padding the new value of the padding child property
GtkPackType packType the new value of the pack-type child property

void setHomogeneous (bool homogeneous);
Sets the #GtkBox:homogeneous property of @box, controlling whether or not all children of @box are given equal space in the box.

Params:
bool homogeneous a boolean value, %TRUE to create equal allotments, %FALSE for variable allotments

void setSpacing (int spacing);
Sets the #GtkBox:spacing property of @box, which is the number of pixels to place between children of @box.

Params:
int spacing the number of pixels to put between children
