Re: widget sizing and alignment

Not all the size requests are being honoured. Specifically the button

the vbox is created $vbox->new(0, 0) the packing call is

Any suggestions?

You pack the button in a VBox, that means that all you specify about expanding and filling only applies to the vertical direction. Objects in a vbox always get the maximum horizontal space. You need to wrap the button in a HBox or even a HButtonBox to make it look better.

I must say that the XML you use looks very clean and readable.
