widget in GroupBox is not saved by LayoutEditor

Postby westpointer » Sun Apr 19, 2009 02:39

I use CELayoutEditor 0.6 to edit my layout, but I find that whatever widget I add as the child of a GroupBox is not saved
even I save the layout by pressing File/Save or File/Save As. I also tried CELayoutEditor 0.6.2, but still doesn't work :(

I thought it is a bug of the editor until I also see a post here
http://www.cegui.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3562&p=16064&.
So it seems GroupBox doesn't have
parent/child relation with the controls which appear to be inside it

If it comes to that, in my opinion, CELayoutEditor should really forbid adding child to a GroupBox to avoid false apperarance,
because in the CELayoutEditor's "Brouse layout" window it appears that the GroupBox has a child which is actually not how it works.

So, I have to add a widget in the same level as GroupBox, and then move it into the GroupBox.

Hi,

i need to double-check this, since in the other thread i seem to say that i fixed that. But obviously i didn't or not completely.

Thanks for the heads up on this :)

Yes, at least that would conform to the 'leading' widget toolkits (mfc, wxwidgets and such).

I have always hated this functionality...and I blame Microsoft for it. It's a freaking GROUPBOX ffs! /sigh...
