Problem centering a label

Hi

I have frame.

Inside i want to put a static text as title, centered.

I use two sizers, one vertical an other horizontal.

But title is not centered, is put to left.

My code is :

require ‘wx’;

class TarefasNova < Wx::Panel

def initialize(parent)

    rect = parent.get_client_rect();



    super( parent, 1011, Wx::Point.new( 0, 0 ),  rect.get_size(),

SIMPLE_BORDER, “NovaTarefa” );

    sizer = Wx::BoxSizer.new(Wx::VERTICAL );

    box   = Wx::BoxSizer.new(Wx::HORIZONTAL);



    label = Wx::StaticText.new( self, :label => "CADASTRO DE TAREFAS

(NOVA)", :size => [250,-1] );

    box.add( label, 1, Wx::ALIGN_CENTER_VERTICAL, 5);



    sizer.add_item(box, 0, Wx::ALIGN_CENTER|Wx::ALL, 5);

 end

end

How to make my title centered in the panel?

Hi Alejandro,

you just need one sizer on your panel. Add one spacer
(sizer.add_stretch_spacer) before and one after your text.

Like so:

sizer = BoxSizer.new HORIZONTAL
sizer.add_stretch_spacer
sizer.add StaticText.new(self, -1, 'asdf'), 0, 1
sizer.add_stretch_spacer

hth,
Christian.

Christian :

I say in the other mail “I have a frame”, brong i have a panel.

The panel is inside the main frame.

I change my code to :

class TarefasNova < Wx::Panel

def initialize(parent)

    rect = parent.get_client_rect();



    super( parent, 1011, Wx::Point.new( 0, 0 ), rect.get_size(),

          SIMPLE_BORDER,

          "NovaTarefa" );



    #sizer = Wx::BoxSizer.new(Wx::VERTICAL)



    box   = Wx::BoxSizer.new(Wx::HORIZONTAL);



    box.add_stretch_spacer();



    box.add Wx::StaticText.new(self, -1, 'asdf'), 0, 1



    #label = Wx::StaticText.new( self, :label => "CADASTRO DE 

TAREFAS
(NOVA)", :size => [250,-1] );

    #box.add( label, 1, Wx::ALIGN_CENTER, 5);



    box.add_stretch_spacer();



    #sizer.add_item(box, 0, Wx::ALIGN_CENTER|Wx::ALL, 5);

end

end

But the text is not centered, the text is in the left.

Exist some diferences between frame and panel to user sizer?

Simpler, using StaticText ALIGN styles instead of extra spacers

box = Wx::VBoxSizer.new
st = Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => ‘adsf’, :style =>
Wx::ALIGN_CENTRE)
box.add st, 0, Wx::GROW

Watch for the parents’ constructor - you needn’t set size and position.

This is a good point - use sizers to have children adjust to their
parent’s size. Also, if a window is the only child of a frame parent
(often the case with Panels inside Frames) then it will automatically
take up all the avaiable space - no sizer needed.

Hi Alejandro,

this one actually works:

class TarefasNova < Wx::Panel
def initialize(parent)
super( parent, 1011, {:style => SIMPLE_BORDER, :name
=>“NovaTarefa”} );

  box = Wx::BoxSizer.new(Wx::HORIZONTAL);
  box.add_stretch_spacer();
  box.add Wx::StaticText.new(self, -1, 'asdf'), 0, 1
  box.add_stretch_spacer();

  set_sizer box
end

end

Watch for the parents’ constructor - you needn’t set size and position.
Also never forget to call Panel#set_sizer or your sizer won’t have any
effect.

hth,
Christian.

Hi Alejandro,

I’m not sure to understand why you need 2 sizers but your main problem
is that you haven’t told the panel to use the sizer !

Here is a sample code where there are 3 texts :

  • at the top, the text is centered
  • at the middle, the text is left aligned
  • at the bottom, the text is right aligned

The important line is the one with self.sizer = box.
You should also use wx constants to make your code clearer.

#!/usr/bin/env ruby

wxRuby2 Sample Code. Copyright © 2004-2008 wxRuby development team

Freely reusable code: see SAMPLES-LICENSE.TXT for details

begin
require ‘rubygems’
rescue LoadError
end
require ‘wx’

class MyPanel < Wx::Panel
def initialize(parent)
super(parent)
box = Wx::BoxSizer.new (Wx::VERTICAL)
box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => “Centered Title”),
:flag => Wx::ALIGN_CENTER)
box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => “Leftside Text”),
:flag => Wx::ALIGN_LEFT)
box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => “Rightside Text”),
:flag => Wx::ALIGN_RIGHT)
self.sizer = box
end
end

This is the minimum code to start a WxRuby app - create a Frame, and

show it.

Wx::App.run do
frame = Wx::Frame.new(nil, :title => “Minimal wxRuby App”)
panel = MyPanel.new(frame)
frame.show
end

Cheers.

Hi :

The problem is that, after call to create the child panel, i need to
call
send_size_event().

I find the solution becouse i minize the aplication to see the code in
the
editor and when i maxsimize the aplicattion the panel is ok filling all
the
frame space.

Chauk-Mean. :

Your code runs ok in a separate file.

If i call MyPanel from my menu to put the panel in my main frame, the
code
does not work.

This code :

begin

require ‘rubygems’

rescue LoadError

end

require ‘wx’;

class TarefasNova < Wx::Panel

def initialize(parent)

super(parent)

box = Wx::BoxSizer.new (Wx::VERTICAL)

box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => "Centered Title"),

:flag => Wx::ALIGN_CENTER)

box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => "Leftside Text"),

:flag => Wx::ALIGN_LEFT)

box.add_item(Wx::StaticText.new(self, :label => "Rightside Text"),

:flag => Wx::ALIGN_RIGHT)

self.sizer = box

end

end

The panel only shows “Righ”.

Does not size to fill frame.

When i put :

    rect = parent.get_client_rect();



    super( parent, 1011, Wx::Point.new( 0, 0 ), rect.get_size(),

SIMPLE_BORDER, “NovaTarefa” );

This makes the panel fill frame.

The frame has menu bar and statusbar.
