ATTRIBUTES

Attributes are handled through the common get_ATTR(), set_ATTR() style accessors, but they are mostly passed once to the object constructor and must not be altered after the associated FormFactory was built.
title = SCALAR [optional]
Each container may have a title. How this title actually is rendered depends on the implementation of a particular container resp. the implementation of this container in Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Layout. Default is to draw a frame with this title around the container widget.
content = ARRAYREF of Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Widget's [optional]
This is a reference to an array containing the children of this container.

For more attributes refer to Gtk2::Ex::FormFactory::Widget.  

METHODS

$container->add_child_widget ( $widget )
With this method you add a child widget to a container widget. If the container actually wasn't built yet the widget is just appended to the content list of the container and will be built later together with the container.

Otherwise the widget will be built, shown and updated, so adding widgets at runtime is no problem.

$container->remove_child_widget ( $widget )
Removes a child widget from this container. If the container is built the widget will be destroyed completely and the $widget reference may not be used furthermore.
