I can't figure out how to use the spacer widgets (the little springy thingies).
I'm trying to space a table in a panel such that there is a space around the panel. This is what I did:
-I select the panel.
-I select break layout (it was a grid layout)
-I select a horizontal spacer and add it to the left of the panel.
At this point the spacer seems to have no idea that it is "in" the selected panel.
- I re-select grid layout (other wise the system gives me a weird error message: "There are not empty panels with XY layouts" ---whatever that means).
The resulting layout pushes the table all the way to the right.
At this point I go back to the form layout attmept to delete the spacers and, unfortunately I have broken everything.
I guess my question is: How are the spacers supposed to work? Do they require binding? Can the width or height of the spacer be set? Are they really spring-like in that they will push something as far as it can go. If I put two springs on one side and one on the other will the two springs push further than the one?
