The Variable Vertical Panel Widget

[A View of a Horizontal Panel Widget]

View Class: VariableVerticalPanel
Spec Class: VariableVerticalPanelSpec

The Variable Vertical Panel Widget arranges other widgets vertically and provides a resizing bar in between.

By default, a variablePanel as built by the GUI painter will divide its area evenly among its subviews.
In order to change this default, switch the GUI painter to "Geometry Test Mode", resize the subviews as required, go back into editing mode, and save the window specification.
I.e. the windowSpec will include the size ratios as present at saving time, and the panel will use those size ratios initially when the application is started.

The Basics Section:

ID Unique symbolic name (ID) of the box.  
This ID can be used by the application to access the widget via "builder>>componentAt:#ID".
