Functions

Methods
wibox.layout.fixed.horizontal (...)
Returns a new horizontal fixed layout. Each widget will get as much space as it asks for and each widget will be drawn next to its neighboring widget. Widgets can be added via :add() or as arguments to this function. Note that widgets ignore forced_height. They will use the preferred/minimum width on the horizontal axis, and a stretched height on the vertical axis.
  • ... widget Widgets that should be added to the layout.
wibox.layout.fixed.vertical (...)
Returns a new vertical fixed layout. Each widget will get as much space as it asks for and each widget will be drawn next to its neighboring widget. Widgets can be added via :add() or as arguments to this function. Note that widgets ignore forced_width. They will use the preferred/minimum height on the vertical axis, and a stretched width on the horizontal axis.
  • ... widget Widgets that should be added to the layout.

Object properties

Type:

  • layout The layout you are modifying.
wibox.layout.fixed.fill_space

wibox.layout.fixed.spacing
Add spacing between each layout widgets

Type:

  • spacing number Spacing between widgets.
wibox.layout.fixed.forced_height
Force a widget height.

Type:

wibox.layout.fixed.visible
The widget visibility.

Type:

  • boolean

Signals

widget::layout_changed
When the layout (size) change. This signal is emitted when the previous results of :layout() and :fit() are no longer valid. Unless this signal is emitted, :layout() and :fit() must return the same result when called with the same arguments.

See also:

widget::redraw_needed
When the widget content changed. This signal is emitted when the content of the widget changes. The widget will be redrawn, it is not re-layouted. Put differently, it is assumed that :layout() and :fit() would still return the same results as before.
