Implemented Interfaces

GtkVButtonBox implements AtkImplementorIface.

Description

A button box should be used to provide a consistent layout of buttons throughout your application. The layout/spacing can be altered by the programmer, or if desired, by the user to alter the 'feel' of a program to a small degree.

A GtkVButtonBox is created with gtk_vbutton_box_new(). Buttons are packed into a button box the same way widgets are added to any other container, using gtk_container_add(). You can also use gtk_box_pack_start() or gtk_box_pack_end(), but for button boxes both these functions work just like gtk_container_add(), ie., they pack the button in a way that depends on the current layout style and on whether the button has had gtk_button_box_set_child_secondary() called on it.

The spacing between buttons can be set with gtk_box_set_spacing(). The arrangement and layout of the buttons can be changed with gtk_button_box_set_layout().
