How to left justify or right justify a control inside a container.

Hi,

 

I'm trying to place a label in a container to the complete left, and then another control (ToggleButton in my immediate case) on the complete right. How can I do this?

 

I've tried the following to no avail:

 

ToggleButton *toggle = new ToggleButton();

toggle->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Right);

myContainer->add(toggle);

 

Thanks!

Re: How to left justify or right justify a control inside a container.

Hi, I find trying to figure stuff like this out is done best by setting the background colour of the container holding a control... That way you can see if you're inside a container that isn't the full width (for example)... Can you provide more code, what's the parent look like?

Re: How to left justify or right justify a control inside a container.

I've actually gotten this to work by using the following code, I'm using a DockLayout in this case:

 

//Setup controls

 

ScrollView *scrollView = new ScrollView();

scrollView->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Fill);

ScrollViewProperties* scrollViewProp = scrollView->scrollViewProperties();

scrollViewProp->setScrollMode(ScrollMode::Vertical);

 

Container *mainContainer = Container::create().left(0).right(0);

mainContainer->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Fill);

 

Container *subContainer= Container::create().left(20).right(20).top(20).bottom(20);

subContainer->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Fill);

subContainer->setBackground(Color::fromARGB(0xffffffff));

 

Container *subContainerLeft= Container::create().left(0).right(0);

subContainerLeft->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Left);

subContainerLeft->setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment::Center);

 

Container *subContainerRight= Container::create().left(0).right(0);

subContainerRight->setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment::Right);

subContainerRight->setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment::Center);

 

DockLayout* subContainerLayout = newDockLayout;

subContainer->setLayout(subContainerLayout);

 

//Controls are added to left and right here!

 

subContainer->add(subContainerLeft);

subContainer->add(subContainerRight);

 

mainContainer->add(subContainer);

 

scrollView->setContent(mainContainer);

 

this->setContent(scrollView);

 

Thanks for your reply!
