public class FlowBox : Container, Implementor, Buildable, Orientable

A GtkFlowBox positions child widgets in sequence according to its orientation.

For instance, with the horizontal orientation, the widgets will be arranged from left to right, starting a new row under the previous row when necessary. Reducing the width in this case will require more rows, so a larger height will be requested.

Likewise, with the vertical orientation, the widgets will be arranged from top to bottom, starting a new column to the right when necessary. Reducing the height will require more columns, so a larger width will be requested.

The size request of a GtkFlowBox alone may not be what you expect; if you need to be able to shrink it along both axes and dynamically reflow its children, you may have to wrap it in a ScrolledWindow to enable that.

The children of a GtkFlowBox can be dynamically sorted and filtered.

Although a GtkFlowBox must have only FlowBoxChild children, you can add any kind of widget to it via add, and a GtkFlowBoxChild widget will automatically be inserted between the box and the widget.

Also see ListBox.

GtkFlowBox was added in GTK+ 3.12.
