Layout::Manager::Flow(User Contributed Perl DocumentatLayout::Manager::Flow(3)

NAME
       Layout::Manager::Flow - Directional layout manager

DESCRIPTION
       Layout::Manager::Flow is	a layout manager that anchors components in
       one of the four cardinal	directions.

       When you	instantiate a Flow manager, you	may supply it with an anchor
       value which may be one of north,	south, east or west.  The example
       below shows how the default anchor value	of north works when you	add
       two components.

			north
	 +--------------------------------+
	 |	     component 1	  |
	 +--------------------------------+
	 |	     component 2	  |
	 +--------------------------------+
	 |				  |
	 |				  |
	 |				  |
	 +--------------------------------+

       Components are placed in	the order they are added.  If two items	are
       added with a 'north' anchor then	the first item will be rendered	above
       the second.  Components will be expanded	to take	up all space
       perpendicular to	their anchor.  North and south will expand widths
       while east and west will	expand heights.

       Flow is similar to Java's FlowLayout
       <http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/layout/flow.html>.  It
       does not, however, center components.  This features may	be added in
       the future if they are needed.

SYNOPSIS
	 $cont->add_component($comp1);
	 $cont->add_component($comp2);

	 my $lm	= Layout::Manager::Flow->new(anchor => 'north');
	 $lm->do_layout($cont);

ATTRIBUTES
   anchor
       The direction this manager is anchored.	Valid values are north,	south,
       east and	west.

   used
       Returns the amount of space used	an arrayref in the form	of "[ $width,
       $height ]".

   wrap
       If set to a true	value, then component will be 'wrapped'	when they do
       not fit.	 This currently	only works for East and	West anchored layouts.

METHODS
   do_layout
       Size and	position the components	in this	layout.
