enum Gtk.Align

Description [src]

Controls how a widget deals with extra space in a single dimension.

Alignment only matters if the widget receives a “too large” allocation, for example if you packed the widget with the GtkWidget:hexpand property inside a GtkBox, then the widget might get extra space. If you have for example a 16x16 icon inside a 32x32 space, the icon could be scaled and stretched, it could be centered, or it could be positioned to one side of the space.

Note that in horizontal context GTK_ALIGN_START and GTK_ALIGN_END are interpreted relative to text direction.

Baseline support is optional for containers and widgets, and is only available for vertical alignment. GTK_ALIGN_BASELINE_CENTER andGTK_ALIGN_BASELINE_FILLare treated similar toGTK_ALIGN_CENTERandGTK_ALIGN_FILL`, except that it positions the widget to line up the baselines, where that is supported.



Stretch to fill all space if possible, center if no meaningful way to stretch.
