TGXYLayoutHints Class Reference

This layout hint must be used for the TGXYLayout manager!

Example how to use this layout manager:

: TGMainFrame(gClient->GetRoot(), 30, 12)
// frame is 30 character long and 12 character heigh
SetLayoutManager(new TGXYLayout(this));
// create a button of size 8 X 1.8 at position 20 / 1
TGTextButton * button;
button = new TGTextButton(this, "&Apply", 1);
AddFrame(button, new TGXYLayoutHints(20, 1, 8, 1.8));
// create a listbox of size 18 X 10 at position 1 / 1.
// The height will increase if the frame height increases
TGListBox * listBox;
listBox = new TGListBox(this, 2);
AddFrame(listBox, new TGXYLayoutHints(1, 1, 18, 10,

Normally there is one layout hint per widget. Therefore these can be deleted like in the following example in the destructor of the frame:

// Destructor, deletes all frames and their layout hints.
// delete all frames and layout hints
if (fList) {
TIter next(fList);
while ((ptr = (TGFrameElement *) next())) {
if (ptr->fLayout)
delete ptr->fLayout;
if (ptr->fFrame)
delete ptr->fFrame;

TGXYLayoutHints::TGXYLayoutHints ( Double_t  x,
Double_t  y,
Double_t  w,
Double_t  h,
UInt_t  rubberFlag = kLRubberX | kLRubberY 


The x, y, w and h define the position of the widget in its frame and the size of the widget. The unit is the size of a character. The rubberFlag defines how to move and to resize the widget when the frame is resized. Default is moving the X and Y position but keep the size of the widget.
