    Question Layout manager advise

    For an existing (old) SDL2 based C++ project (Windows/Mac OS/Linux), we plan to (partially) refactor our UI to use a layout manager. In the past I have had a very good experience in Java with ClearThought's TableLayout (http://www.clearthought.info/sun/pro...out/index.html), therefore I am looking for something similar. So I have searched the web and besides bloated tool kits I couldn't find anything.

    Optimal would be a 1:1 conversion of the TableLayout Java source code. But anything which comes close would be helpful.

    Re: Layout manager advise

    A layout manager is usually part of or builds on a graphics subsystem of some kind. For example, according to the link you supplied, TableLayout is a third-party addition to the Java AWT (where it enhances the built-in GridBagLayout).

    So a layout manager cannot be selected in isolation. It will depend of your choice of graphics subsystem and ultimately which GUI package you decide to use or are using already.
