oh this is great ! I loved QT for having this and hated MFC for not having this :)

It would be even more great if these could be specified within the .layout files, to achieve this you would need to make the GridLayout be a CEGUI custom widget, I think.

Maybe the two files (.cpp/.h) could be uploaded to the CEGUI server, so if noware.info should go down in the future, these great files are still available !

edit:
there should be a link to the article somewhere on the page, so nobody misses it. maybe in the FAQ, create a point "how to lay out my widgets in a grid like for QT/Gtk" ?

my suggestion is to create a contrib directory where code such as this could live. similar to how wxWidgets has a contrib directory in their source release.

just a thought.

Good idea! Makes me somewhat proud to see my code there :)

I've been investigating the code base to see if that's possible and I think it is:
One can create a custom GridLayoutWidget with a property defining the layout of its children. The solution via the property is quite ugly though, because it would take a very long string to define the layout of a more complex window (alternatives welcome ;) ).
By the way, using a widget has got another advantage: it is very easy to create stacked layouts by making a GridLayoutWidget a GridLayoutWidget's child.

you can upload images at imageshack.us, but they disappear after a time.

Looks nice. I'll let you know once I've tried this. This kind of manager class can be very useful.
