|Type||Layout type, including NONE, HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL and GRID.|
|ResizeMode||Resize mode, including NONE, CHILDREN and CONTAINER.|
|PaddingLeft||The left padding between the children and the container frame.|
|PaddingRight||The right padding between the children and the container frame.|
|PaddingTop||The top padding between the children and the container frame.|
|PaddingBottom||The bottom padding between the children and the container frame.|
|SpacingX||The spacing between children in the horizontal layout. NONE mode doesn't have this property.|
|SpacingY||The spacing between children in the vertical layout. NONE mode doesn't have this property.|
|HorizontalDirection||When it is designated as horizontal layout, this property determines which side(left or right) does the first child node start in the layout. When the Layout type is set to GRID, this property along with
|VerticalDirection||When it is designated as vertical layout, this property determines which side(top or bottom) does the first child node start in the layout. When the Layout type is set to GRID, this property with
|CellSize||This property is only available in GRID layout, CHILDREN resize mode, determines the size of each child node.|
|StartAxis||This property is only available in GRID layout, determines the arrangement direction of children.|
|AffectedByScale||Whether the scale of the child node affects the layout.|
|Constraint||Layout constraints that constrain the number of alignments in a given direction, supporting NONE, FIXED_ROW and FIXED_COL.|
|ConstraintNum||The layout constraint value, valid in
After adding the
Layout component, the default layout type is NONE, you can toggle the container alignment type by modifying
Type in Inspector. The types are HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL and GRID layouts. Also,
ResizeMode is supported for all layout types except NONE.
The modes of
When Resize Mode is NONE, the size of the container and children is independent from each other.
When Resize Mode is CHILDREN, the size of the children will change with the size of the container to make sure all children fit inside the container's bounding box.
When Resize Mode is CONTAINER, the size of the container will change with the size of the children to make sure the container is large enough to contain all children inside its bounding box.
All alignments are calculated based on the container size. If the sorting needs to be fixed, set the
Gridand then set the
ConstraintNumto fix the sorting.
The modes of
When Constraint is NONE, the layout is free of Constraint.
When Constraint is FIXED_ROW, a fixed number of rows is used with
When Constraint is FIXED_COL, a fixed number of columns is used with
Note: if the Layout's configuration is set in runtime, the results need to be updated until the next frame, unless you manually call
