A container that allows for precise placement of widgets.
A GtkFixed container performs no automatic layout
management, as it is left to the programmer to provide the placement and
size of all child widgets, in pixels, through the
move() methods. The
add() method should not be used
Although this container allows for a fine grain of control over the exact
layout of a program, it is should not be used for most applications. One
reason for this recommendation is that it requires great care and effort to
prevent display bugs (such as truncated text or overlapping widgets), and
makes it troublesome to add or remove widgets, as probably many others will
have to be rearranged. It has some other limitations, particularly when it
comes to tranlating text and handling right-to-left languages. It is also
harder to maintain layout consistency, especially in applications with
complex and/or multiple windows.
