Class

Gtk.Box

Description [src]

class Gtk.Box : Gtk.Widget {
  parent_instance: GtkWidget
}

The GtkBox widget arranges child widgets into a single row or column.

An example GtkBox

Whether it is a row or column depends on the value of its GtkOrientable:orientation property. Within the other dimension, all children are allocated the same size. Of course, the GtkWidget:halign and GtkWidget:valign properties can be used on the children to influence their allocation.

Use repeated calls to gtk_box_append() to pack widgets into a GtkBox from start to end. Use gtk_box_remove() to remove widgets from the GtkBox. gtk_box_insert_child_after() can be used to add a child at a particular position.

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.

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

CSS nodes

GtkBox uses a single CSS node with name box.

Accessibility

GtkBox uses the GTK_ACCESSIBLE_ROLE_GROUP role.
