`GtkCenterBox` arranges three children in a row, keeping the middle child centered as well as possible.

![An example GtkCenterBox](centerbox.png)

To add children to `GtkCenterBox`, use [method@Gtk.CenterBox.set_start_widget], [method@Gtk.CenterBox.set_center_widget] and [ method@Gtk.CenterBox.set_end_widget].

The sizing and positioning of children can be influenced with the align and expand properties of the children.

GtkCenterBox as GtkBuildable

The `GtkCenterBox` implementation of the `GtkBuildable` interface supports placing children in the 3 positions by specifying “start”, “center” or “end” as the “type” attribute of a <child> element.

CSS nodes

`GtkCenterBox` uses a single CSS node with the name “box”,

The first child of the `GtkCenterBox` will be allocated depending on the text direction, i.e. in left-to-right layouts it will be allocated on the left and in right-to-left layouts on the right.

In vertical orientation, the nodes of the children are arranged from top to bottom.


`GtkCenterBox` uses the gtk_accessible_role_group role.
