Gtk2::Paned is the base class for widgets with two panes, arranged either horizontally (Gtk2::HPaned) or vertically (Gtk2::VPaned). Child widgets are added to the panes of the widget with "$paned->pack1" and "$paned->pack2". The division between the two children is set by default from the size requests of the children, but it can be adjusted by the user.

A paned widget draws a separator between the two child widgets and a small handle that the user can drag to adjust the division. It does not draw any relief around the children or around the separator. Often, it is useful to put each child inside a Gtk2::Frame with the shadow type set to 'in' so that the gutter appears as a ridge.

Each child has two options that can be set, resize and shrink. If resize is true, then when the Gtk2::Paned is resized, that child will expand or shrink along with the paned widget. If shrink is true, then when that child can be made smaller than its requisition by the user. Setting shrink to FALSE allows the application to set a minimum size. If resize is false for both children, then this is treated as if resize is true for both children.

The application can set the position of the slider as if it were set by the user, by calling "$paned->set_position".

$paned->add1 ($child)

$child (Gtk2::Widget)

$paned->add2 ($child)

$child (Gtk2::Widget)

widget = $paned->child1

widget = $paned->get_child1

boolean = $paned->child1_resize

$paned->child1_resize (newval)

$newval (boolean)

"child1_resize" determines whether the first child should expand when $paned is resized.

boolean = $paned->child1_shrink

$paned->child1_shrink (newval)

$newval (boolean)

"child1_shrink" determines whether the first child may be made smaller than its requisition.

widget = $paned->child2

widget = $paned->get_child2

boolean = $paned->child2_resize

$paned->child2_resize (newval)

$newval (boolean)

"child2_resize" determines whether the second child should expand when $paned is resized.

boolean = $paned->child2_shrink

$paned->child2_shrink (newval)

$newval (boolean)

"child2_shrink" determines whether the second child may be made smaller than its requisition.

$paned->set_position ($position)

$position (integer)

'max-position' (integer : default INT_MAX : readable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
Largest possible value for the "position" property
'min-position' (integer : default 0 : readable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
Smallest possible value for the "position" property
'position' (integer : default 0 : readable / writable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
Position of paned separator in pixels (0 means all the way to the left/top)
'position-set' (boolean : default false : readable / writable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
TRUE if the Position property should be used

'resize' (boolean : default true : readable / writable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
If TRUE, the child expands and shrinks along with the paned widget
'shrink' (boolean : default true : readable / writable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
If TRUE, the child can be made smaller than its requisition

'handle-size' (integer : default 5 : readable / private / static-nick / static-blurb)
