Re: Widgets to use to conform to HIG

Disregard that last, I've been looking through Gnome's viewcvs and I
found quite a few samples. Still, a lot of projects do different
things (nautilus uses GtkAlignments which seems right, while gedit
uses a GtkLabel to pad the left side). Anyways, it might be useful to
post some samples along with the HIG so that others can find it more

FWIW, the glade files used to generate many of the HIG screenshots are available in the HIG module:

I do agree that some clearer examples of dialog construction in the HIG would be useful, although only up to a point -- ideally, tools like Glade should come with some common templates and/or set the HIG spacings by default, where possible.

Hi everyone,

I was reading the Gnome HIG and came across a couple of dialogs that
are similar to what I would like to have in a preferences window.
However, I'm completely confused as to whether I should use GtkVBox,
GtkTable, GtkLayout, GtkAlignment, GtkFrame etc. for things like this,
and how these things fit together to align and display nicely. Can
somebody point me to either a .glade file or some code for dialogs
such as the following?
