How to fix size of certain panels

Postby aap on Thu Nov 29, 2007 8:22 am

hello,

I'm building an application were the user builds an application by a graphical design.
For the final application, the program generates a GUI, based on AUI,
like shown in the top picture here:
http://oase.uci.kun.nl/~mientki/data_www/python/pylab_works_tree.html
This gives the user the possibility to
re-arrange and resize the panes, when the user has finished this layout,
he presses a button, and the captions of the panes disappear,
the sizers get a width of zero (so they can't be touched any more),
and the application is ready.

Now the image is the layer 0 pane,
so when resizing the overall frame,
this image will resize and the width of the left panels is unchanged, which is good.
When changing the height of the overall frame,
the top pane (where the filename is), should remain it's definied height,
but I can not accomplish this (tried several things, but apparently not the right ones).

Is this possible with AUI ?
Or might it be better to generate a complete new window, without AUI ?

thanks,
Stef Mientki

If I'm understanding this correctly, you should just specify Fixed() on the top left panel.

All the best,

I tried setting Fixed(),
and I even checked with IsFixed() to see if the setting id done correctly,
but the 2 panels on the left keep scaled relative to each other.
(btw I'm using wxPython, could that be the problem ?)

thanks,

I'm having the same problem, one of my panes was supposed to have a min size, but when it reaches it the other panes simple push it. It was a centerpane that had the pane infoto be CenterPane()

I tried the Fixed() command, but it didn't work as well. I realized that in the auidemo was the same problem and one strange thing. When the pane was docked you couldn't resize it in one direction, but the other not, and when was floating you could resize in any direction but the window inside expanded only in one the rest was like it had nothing.

All the best,

Hello,

The fact that with fixed panes you can't resize them in one direction, but still can resize the dock -- this is by design. It was decided that a fixed panel shouldn't penalize other panels on the dock. To solve this problem, recent versions of aui allow you to suppress the resize sash of an entire dock.

It's included in the latest version of wxWidgets, 2.8.7.

Best,

I already using this version, but i stil found this problem. I using this code:

Code: Select all
auiManager.InsertPane(legP,wxAuiPaneInfo().Name(_("Leg")).Caption(_("Legenda")).Float().BestSize(wxSize(165,150)).Fixed()
                                                               .MinSize(wxSize(165,150)).DestroyOnClose(false).PinButton(false).CaptionVisible(true).Hide()
                                                               .FloatingSize(wxSize(165,150)).CloseButton(false).FloatingPosition(wxPoint(posx,posy)));


Thanks,
Bob

Ok, The next step is to add the DockFixed() option to both panes. This is what I was referring to above.
