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(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 to install the QHBoxLayout object onto window. At that point, the widgets in the layout are reparented to have window as their parent.
