    Layout Advise

    wyattbiker Level 1
      I want to make a page and have 3 resizable frames similar to frames in HTML.

      E.g. something like the layout below:
      If I resize any of the frames I want the other ones to adjust accordingly. Do I use Canvases and layout vertical or absolute? Also how do I add resize handles to the frames.

          Look at the VDividedBox and HDividedBox classes.

            Of, if you do not want user interactivity and only programmatic control, use an HBox, containing view/component 1, plus a VBox containing views 2 and 3.

            Use percentage sizing on all containers.

              Thanks Amy and Tracy. I started using the V and H classes and layouts as you suggested Its exactly what I was looking for. Cool stuff.
