ScreenshotThe AG_Pane container divides its allocated space into two partitions (general-purpose AG_Box(3) containers) horizontally or vertically.


AG_Object(3)-> AG_Widget(3)-> AG_Pane.


AG_Pane * AG_PaneNewHoriz (AG_Widget *parent, Uint flags)

AG_Pane * AG_PaneNewVert (AG_Widget *parent, Uint flags)

void AG_PaneAttachBox (AG_Pane *pane, int which, AG_Box *box)

void AG_PaneAttachBoxes (AG_Pane *pane, AG_Box *box1, AG_Box *box2)

void AG_PaneSetDividerWidth (AG_Pane *pane, int pixels)

void AG_PaneSetDivisionMin (AG_Pane *pane, int which, int min_w, int min_h)

int AG_PaneMoveDivider (AG_Pane *pane, int x)

int AG_PaneMoveDividerPct (AG_Pane *pane, int pct)

void AG_PaneResizeAction (AG_Pane *pane, enum ag_pane_resize_action resizeAction)

The AG_PaneNewHoriz() and AG_PaneNewVert() functions allocate, initialize, and attach a new AG_Pane container, dividing space in the specified orientation.

Acceptable flags include:
AG_PANE_DIV1FILLBy default, the size of the first (left or top) division is computed from its child widgets, and the second division is sized to use the remaining space. This option arranges for the first division to be sized from the remaining space instead.
AG_PANE_FRAMERender decorative frames.
AG_PANE_UNMOVABLEDo not allow the user to move the divider.
AG_PANE_HFILLExpand horizontally in parent container.
AG_PANE_VFILLExpand vertically in parent container.

If AG_PANE_FRAME is set, the depth of the frame can be adjusted by invoking AG_BoxSetDepth(3) on the partitions.

By default, the two AG_Box(3) sub-containers of AG_Pane are created automatically. AG_PaneAttachBox() allows existing boxes to be attached and re-used. which must be 0 or 1. AG_PaneAttachBoxes() is a variant that accepts two box arguments.

AG_PaneSetDividerWidth() sets the width of the divider widget in pixels. If the argument is 0 then the divider will be invisible and not selectable. If the argument is -1, reset to default (which is based on the zoom level).

By default, the user is allowed to move the separator such that one of the two partitions can be shrunk to zero. AG_PaneSetDivisionMin() prevents this by setting a minimal geometry in pixels for the given partition which (which must be either 0 or 1). If the value -1 is given, no minimum is set.

The separator can also be moved programmatically with the AG_PaneMoveDivider() function. AG_PaneMoveDivider() tries to move the divider to the specified position x (in pixels) and returns the actual new position. Note that AG_PaneMoveDivider() will not have any effect if any of the AG_PANE_FORCE_* options are set.

The AG_PaneMoveDividerPct() variant accepts an argument in % of total available size. If AG_PaneResizeAction() is used with AG_PANE_DIVIDE_PCT, this percentage is preserved through resizing.

AG_PaneResizeAction() specifies the behavior of AG_Pane following a resize of the parent container widget. Possible arguments include:
AG_PANE_EXPAND_DIV1Expand or shrink the left/upper division (default).
AG_PANE_EXPAND_DIV2Expand or shrink the right/lower division.
AG_PANE_DIVIDE_EVENDivide the space evenly in two.
AG_PANE_DIVIDE_PCTDivide the space by the percentage value specified in AG_PaneMoveDividerPct().


The AG_Pane widget does not generate any event.


For the AG_Pane object:
AG_Box *div[2] Division containers (assuming that AG_PaneAttachBox() was not used).
int dmoving Divider is currently being moved by the user (read-only).
int dx Actual divider position (read-only)


The following code fragment displays two expanded, multi-line AG_Textbox(3) widgets, separated horizontally by a AG_Pane.
AG_Window *win;
AG_Pane *pane;
AG_Textbox *textbox[2];

win = AG_WindowNew(0);
pane = AG_PaneNewVert(win, AG_PANE_EXPAND);
textbox[0] = AG_TextboxNew(pane->div[0],
textbox[1] = AG_TextboxNew(pane->div[1],
AG_PaneMoveDividerPct(pane, 50);


AG_Box(3), AG_Intro(3), AG_MPane(3), AG_Widget(3), AG_Window(3)


The AG_Pane widget first appeared in Agar 1.0.
