Keeping child windows in their place
I've created a bunch of custom widgets for my latest application.
Now I have a thought of expanding them to include setting child windows within these widgets, however before I attempt it I have a bit of a problem in concept.
How oh how do I keep those darn child windows in their place?
Say I have a scrolling area, nothing simple just a boring old widget with scrollbars. Now if I add a child to this widget, i would say want them to wrap vertically, and I might add a bit of padding between the children and the parent for looks.
Now, when this is resized or something I may have to move the children or whatever (this is a bad example I realise but I'm too lazy to come up with another.) should I just enumChildWindows() and simply relocate them according to my rules and numbers?
I guess, trial and error for this most likely but I really cant think of any other ways so I have nothing to fall back on if this method is an error.
