Re: GtkGrid children and GTK_ALIGN_END

By my understanding, the explanation is this:

Assuming I understand this guide right, then it does kinda make sense to me.

I found that hexpanding the Entry too got around this, but it may not be exactly what you want.

since a test case is always useful...

#include <gtk/gtk.h>

main (int    argc,
      char **argv)
  gtk_init (&argc, &argv);

  GtkWidget *grid = gtk_grid_new ();
  gtk_widget_set_hexpand (grid, TRUE);
  gtk_widget_set_halign (grid, GTK_ALIGN_FILL);
  gtk_orientable_set_orientation ((GtkOrientable *)grid, GTK_ORIENTATION_HORIZONTAL);

  GtkWidget *entry = gtk_entry_new ();
  gtk_widget_set_halign (entry, GTK_ALIGN_END);
  gtk_container_add ((GtkContainer *)grid, entry);

  GtkWidget *window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
  gtk_container_add ((GtkContainer *)window, grid);
  gtk_widget_show_all (window);

  gtk_main ();
