Detailed Description

This class is used to construct horizontal box layout objects. See QBoxLayout for details.

The simplest use of the class is like this:

window = QWidget()
button1 = QPushButton("One")
button2 = QPushButton("Two")
button3 = QPushButton("Three")
button4 = QPushButton("Four")
button5 = QPushButton("Five")

layout = QHBoxLayout()
layout.addWidget(button1)
layout.addWidget(button2)
layout.addWidget(button3)
layout.addWidget(button4)
layout.addWidget(button5)

window.setLayout(layout)
window.show()

First, we create the widgets we want in the layout. Then, we create the QHBoxLayout object and add the widgets into the layout. Finally, we call setLayout() to install the QHBoxLayout object onto the widget. At that point, the widgets in the layout are reparented to have window as their parent.
