VBox

A gtk.VBox is a container that organizes child widgets into a single column.

Use the gtk.Box packing interface to determine the arrangement, spacing, height, and alignment of gtk.VBox children.

All children are allocated the same width.

GtkVBox has been deprecated. You can use gtk.Box instead, which is a very quick and easy change. If you have derived your own classes from GtkVBox, you can simply change the inheritance to derive directly from gtk.Box, and set the orientation property to GTK_ORIENTATION_VERTICAL in your instance init function, with a call like:

gtk_orientable_set_orientation (GTK_ORIENTABLE (object),
GTK_ORIENTATION_VERTICAL);

f you don’t need first-child or last-child styling and want your code to be future-proof, the recommendation is to switch to gtk.Grid instead of nested boxes. For more information about migrating to gtk.Grid, see [Migrating from other containers to GtkGrid][gtk-migrating-GtkGrid].

Constructors

this
this(GtkVBox* gtkVBox, bool ownedRef = false)

Sets our main struct and passes it to the parent class.

this
this(bool homogeneous, int spacing)

Creates a new gtk.VBox

Inherited Members

From Box

gtkBox
GtkBox* gtkBox;

the main Gtk struct

getBoxStruct
GtkBox* getBoxStruct(bool transferOwnership = false)

Get the main Gtk struct

getStruct
void* getStruct()

getType
GType getType()
getBaselinePosition
GtkBaselinePosition getBaselinePosition()

Gets the value set by Box.setBaselinePosition.

getCenterWidget
Widget getCenterWidget()

Retrieves the center widget of the box.

getHomogeneous
bool getHomogeneous()

Returns whether the box is homogeneous (all children are the same size). See Box.setHomogeneous.

getSpacing
int getSpacing()

Gets the value set by Box.setSpacing.

packEnd
void packEnd(Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding)

Adds child to box, packed with reference to the end of box. The child is packed after (away from end of) any other child packed with reference to the end of box.

packStart
void packStart(Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding)

Adds child to box, packed with reference to the start of box. The child is packed after any other child packed with reference to the start of box.

queryChildPacking
void queryChildPacking(Widget child, out bool expand, out bool fill, out uint padding, out GtkPackType packType)

Obtains information about how child is packed into box.

reorderChild
void reorderChild(Widget child, int position)

Moves child to a new position in the list of box children. The list contains widgets packed GTK_PACK_START as well as widgets packed GTK_PACK_END, in the order that these widgets were added to box.

setBaselinePosition
void setBaselinePosition(GtkBaselinePosition position)

Sets the baseline position of a box. This affects only horizontal boxes with at least one baseline aligned child. If there is more vertical space available than requested, and the baseline is not allocated by the parent then position is used to allocate the baseline wrt the extra space available.

setCenterWidget
void setCenterWidget(Widget widget)

Sets a center widget; that is a child widget that will be centered with respect to the full width of the box, even if the children at either side take up different amounts of space.

setChildPacking
void setChildPacking(Widget child, bool expand, bool fill, uint padding, GtkPackType packType)

Sets the way child is packed into box.

setHomogeneous
void setHomogeneous(bool homogeneous)

Sets the homogeneous property of box, controlling whether or not all children of box are given equal space in the box.

setSpacing
void setSpacing(int spacing)

Sets the spacing property of box, which is the number of pixels to place between children of box.
