With this advertising-like subject Very Happy I want to describe one little demo written by me in the last couple of days, that demonstrates one interesting technique for working with complex layouts of rectangular cells.
I mean such as auto aligned children windows with splitters between them and also complex tada grids very similar to HTML type tables.
The simple demo project demonstrates both uses of the algorithm. The algorithm is pretty OS independent and actually I plan to use this libraries in the next generation of Fresh visual library that should be more or less OS independent.

Download demo package here: SplitGrids.zip

Every opinions are welcome.

Regards.

Very good algorithm. It could help me to review the html table rendering I'm using.

btw. using splitters improve the GUI usability because optimize the available working space (it is better than floating windows, imho.)

I hope it will help you, even little.

Actually I am not very sure whether it is true in all cases. The splitted workspace have one disadvantage - if you have narrow window at the left - it must be as high as the big window at the right. But if the left window contains only little information, the most of its space will be empty and lost. On the other hand, if you make this same left window to be float - it will cover the part of the main window, that is unacceptable in most cases...
Actually, IMHO, every particular program workspace must be optimised separately in order to get best results.
