The QHBoxLayout class lines up widgets horizontally. More...
|qmake:||QT += widgets|
This class is used to construct horizontal box layout objects. See QBoxLayout for details.
The simplest use of the class is like this:
QWidget *window = new QWidget; QPushButton *button1 = new QPushButton("One"); QPushButton *button2 = new QPushButton("Two"); QPushButton *button3 = new QPushButton("Three"); QPushButton *button4 = new QPushButton("Four"); QPushButton *button5 = new QPushButton("Five"); QHBoxLayout *layout = new QHBoxLayout(window); layout->addWidget(button1); layout->addWidget(button2); layout->addWidget(button3); layout->addWidget(button4); layout->addWidget(button5); window->show();
First, we create the widgets we want to add to the layout. Then, we create the QHBoxLayout object, setting
window as parent by passing it in the constructor; next we add the widgets to the layout.
window will be the parent of the widgets that are added to the layout.
If you don't pass parent
window in the constrcutor, you can at a later point use QWidget::setLayout() to install the QHBoxLayout object onto
window. At that point, the widgets in the layout are reparented to have
window as their parent.
