Description Sergey Petrov 2008-11-26 09:27:10 UTC
need support for containers in layouts.
currently all nodes are processed as free/independent nodes, also links are drawn accordingly to this processing.
it should be possible to specify some adapter in layout action which will provide container node for processed node(in
this case layout can be done for all nodes inside the container) or at least boolean adapter to show if node is on scene
and need to be processed or inside container and shouldn't be processed.
Comment 1 Sergey Petrov 2008-11-26 09:41:33 UTC
adapter is required because of possible different realization of containers via dependency or via children widgets or
somehow else, so can't be hardcoded in layout.
