Basic Usage

To build a layout with a grid:

  1. Add a grid with the elm_grid_add() function:

    Evas_Object *grid;
    
    grid = elm_grid_add(parent);
    
  2. Set the size of the grid with the elm_grid_size_set() function. The size is 100 x 100 by default.
    grid = elm_grid_size_set(grid, 20, 30);
    
  3. Add objects and pack them into the grid with the elm_grid_pack() function:
    Evas_Object *button;
    
    elm_grid_pack(grid, button, 0, 0, 10, 10);
    

The following example shows a simple use case of the grid component.

Example: Grid use case

Grid

Evas_Object *win;
Evas_Object *conf;
Evas_Object *nf;
Evas_Object *grid;
Evas_Object *button;

/* Starting right after the basic EFL UI layout code */
/* (win - conformant - naviframe) */

/* Add a grid to contain buttons and push the grid into the naviframe */
grid = elm_grid_add(nf);
elm_object_content_set(nf, grid);
evas_object_show(grid);
elm_naviframe_item_push(nf, "Grid", NULL, NULL, grid, NULL);

/* Add a button to the grid */
button = elm_button_add(grid);
elm_object_text_set(button, "Button1");
elm_grid_pack(grid, button, 10, 10, 40, 20);
evas_object_show(button);

/* Add a button to the grid */
button = elm_button_add(grid);
elm_object_text_set(button, "Button2");
elm_grid_pack(grid, button, 50, 50, 40, 30);
evas_object_show(button);

/* Add a button to the grid */
button = elm_button_add(grid);
elm_object_text_set(button, "Button3");
elm_grid_pack(grid, button, 10, 80, 30, 10);
evas_object_show(button);
