Can't layout window properly

  • Hello, i'm still a noob using Qt and would like you to help me with this:

    So i'm creating a desktop app, with a menu bar and two tabs using Qt designer. For the first TAB i want an OpenGL widget to be displayed in about 3/4 of the total TAB space, just like this:

    But when i try to apply an horizontal layout to both sections (buttons on the left and OpenGL widget on the right), so that when i resize the main window they scale properly, my OpenGL window only fills half the screen..
    I would be very appreciated if anyone could help me out! Thanks in advance.

    you can do that with
    alt text
    it works as procent sort of.
    say you write 1,2
    second would take up as 2/3 space. fool around with some values and see.
