GridView and distance between delegates

  • Hi!
    My delegates vary in width. How do I set the distance between delegates?
    cellWidth doesn't suit me.

  • Post some working code :)

  • Really, 'spacing' id required here, but GridView doesn't support that. There is another question here on the forum; which suggests cellWidth, which you say doesn't suit you. In which case, can you not use Row instead of GridView?, all I see when your code is compiled, is 4 grey radiused buttons in a row.

    If you use Row, you can individually control the width between each button by nesting each button and then you can use 'spacing: ?' to whatever you like. This is demonstrated by me on this link;

    Should I be seeing more than just four labelled buttons from your code?

    or, as a cheat, pad out the names of the buttons. 'green' is the longest name (5 characters), so add a space into the appropriate words; e.g. add 2 spaces to the end of "Red " - your buttons are now of equal width that I can see and the spacing is even.

  • @Markkyboy This is incomplete code. Each delegate will have several words and they will be of different lengths. There may be many delegates, or there may be more than one row, so row will not work.

  • it is work
