[Glade-users] [SOLVED] Re: Button packing

ok, I think I've got it.

I used a non-homogeneous GtkBox (horizontal) with two fields. I put a button in each field. Then I clicked on 
the first (left) button and in the Packing field I set Pack Type to "Start." I clicked on the second (right) 
button and in the Packing field I set Pack Type to "End." I used the defaults for Fill and Expand for the 
buttons, which were "Yes" and "No", respectively.

That's pretty neat and tidy.? Glade is great.

Subject: [Glade-users] Button packing


I would like to place two buttons in my window. I want one button to be at the left side of the window, and 
the other at the right side of the window.

I tried putting a GtkBox (horizontal) with 5 columns. I chose 5 so that I'd get the width of buttons I want. 
Then I put one button in position 0, and the other at position 4.

What I find is that when the window is rendered, it expands the buttons so that each one takes half the 
window width, filling the entire row.

I tried the same thing with a GtkGrid with 1 row, but had the same result. I've fooled around with every 
Expand/Fill combination I could think of, but it didn't help.

The solution was to put blank labels in the 3 inner positions. This worked whether I used a GtkBox or 
GtkGrid. But I can't help feeling like I shouldn't need to put empty labels to make this work.
