Gap between components




   Is their any way, how we can set the horizontal gap between components in a layout. For eg. I have FlowFieldManager with 2 labels. I want some space between both of them.


   Similarly, I have 4 gridFieldManger in my screen, I want gap between all of them. At present all are coming but one after another - whereas I want spacing between them.


 How to achieve the above ? Any help is highly appreciated.




For any helpful answers give kudo's (star) to the helper.
