I'm trying to create a split column inside a box. Seems pretty simple but I just can't figure it out...any ideas?

For example, I would all of the below in a layout.box()

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, just like that. My script has a box = layout.box() but it doesn't work with the aligned split columns in my script, I'm trying to change it now to see if it works... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The thing is I have multiple boxes, how would I go about doing this for just one box? Using the layout = layout.box() does it for the whole thing... $\endgroup$

you can stack layouts, as each of the container layout elements can host other containers:

    layout = self.layout
    box = layout.box()

    # put a column layout into the box
    col = box.column(align = True)

    # also separators work

    # add a row layout into the column, which is inside the box, which is inside a panel,.....
    row = col.row(align = True)
  • $\begingroup$ Thats good, but they are aligning horizontally, I want them to align vertically, like the above image in 'Column Two'. $\endgroup$
