Structure

Gtk.HBoxClass

Gtk.HBox is a container that organizes child widgets into a single row.

Use the Gtk.Box packing interface to determine the arrangement, spacing, width, and alignment of Gtk.HBox children.

All children are allocated the same height.

Gtk.HBox 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 Gtk.HBox, you can simply change the inheritance to derive directly from Gtk.Box. No further changes are needed, since the default value of the Gtk.Orientable :orientation property is Gtk.Orientation.HORIZONTAL.

If you have a grid-like layout composed of nested boxes, and you don’t need first-child or last-child styling, the recommendation is to switch to Gtk.Grid. For more information about migrating to Gtk.Grid, see Migrating from other containers to GtkGrid.

classmethod new(homogeneous, spacing)[source]
Parameters
  • homogeneous (bool) – True if all children are to be given equal space allotments.

  • spacing (int) – the number of pixels to place by default between children.

Returns

a new Gtk.HBox.

Return type

Gtk.Widget

Creates a new Gtk.HBox.

Deprecated since version 3.2: You should use Gtk.Box.new() with a Gtk.Orientation.HORIZONTAL Gtk.Orientable :orientation instead
