[SOLVED] QGridLayout does not lay out properly?

newbie here, hope you can help me.
I need to arrange the following widgets in a grid with 3 columns:
the first (header) row will have 3 bold labels,
the subsequent rows will have buttons in the first column, and short labels in 2nd and 3rd columns, that would become visible when the button is pressed.
I create this in the code (not using QT Creator) as follows:
@QGridLayout *gridLayout = new QGridLayout(this);
gridLayout->addWidget(createHeaderLabel("Buttons"), 0, 0);
gridLayout->addWidget(createHeaderLabel("Labels"), 0, 1);
gridLayout->addWidget(createHeaderLabel("LabelsToo"), 0, 2);
for (int row = 1; row < 10; row++)
QPushButton* btn = new QPushButton(QString::number(row), this);
gridLayout->addWidget(btn, row, 0);
QLabel* lbl1 = new QLabel(this); lbl1->setAlignment(Qt::AlignHCenter); gridLayout->addWidget(lbl1, row, 1); QLabel* lbl2 = new QLabel(this); lbl2->setAlignment(Qt::AlignHCenter); gridLayout->addWidget(lbl2, row, 2);
and here is createHeaderLabel() implementation:
@QLabel* createHeaderLabel(QString name)
QLabel* lbl = new QLabel(name);
QFont font = lbl->font();
When the button is pressed, the 2 labels in the same row will display their text which is a 1-3 characters long. (I omitted this part of code as I think it is not relevant here).
For some reason, when I run this, the first two columns are aligned nicely, the buttons are centered under the 1st header label; and when a button is pressed, the label in the 2nd column would appear centered under the 2nd header label; but in the third column, the header label is not aligned with the labels underneath.
I tried to set fixed size to the labels, but it didn't help. Could you please point me in the right direction?
