NAME¶Glue, HGlue, VGlue - open space between interactors
DESCRIPTION¶A glue object is an interactor that is used to define variable-size space between interactors in boxes. The HGlue subclass is for space in a horizontal box; VGlue for space in a vertical box. Along its minor axis (vertical for HGlue, horizontal for VGlue), glue has a natural size of zero and infinite stretchability.
- HGlue(int natural = 0, int stretch = hfil)
- VGlue(int natural = 0, int stretch = vfil)
- Construct glue with a given natural size and stretchability. The glue's shrinkability is defined to be the same as the natural size, meaning it can shrink to zero.
- HGlue(int natural, int shrink, int stretch)
- VGlue(int natural, int shrink, int stretch)
- Construct glue with a given natural size, shrinkability, and stretchability. If shrink is larger than natural the glue potentially can have ``negative size'', meaning interactors will overlap in a box.
