Base class for GtkHButtonBox and GtkVButtonBox.
GtkButtonBox is a base class underlying GtkHButtonBox and GtkVButtonBox, that provides some methods to control the button layout within those widgets. One of this methods is set_layout() , that applies one of the GtkButtonBoxStyle layouts to the button box. Another one is set_child_secondary() , that causes the child to appear in a secondary group of the button box.
The main purpose of GtkButtonBox is to make sure the children have all the same size. Therefore it ignores the homogeneous property which it inherited from GtkBox, and always behaves as if homogeneous was true.
