This package is replacement for VCL TFlowPanel and TGridPanel.

Main goal of the package is to escape from absolute positioning in form design and all induced problems.

It’s inspired and mimics W3C CCS3 Template Layout Specification.

Likewise to VCL TGridPanel, this control aligns children based on grid.

Contrary to VCL TGridPanel that places only one child control to a grid cell, TGridLayoutPanel adds new additional concept a slot. Slots are placed into cells of the grid and can be spanned to several rows and/or columns. Slots can hold any number of child controls. But they are not windowed containers, so consider them as virtual panels.

Children in a slot are aligned and sized according to slot flow direction that could be vertical, horizontal or horizontal with wrapping to multiline. Last choice makes TGridLayoutPanel similar to VCL TFlowPanel.

And this package could be used in Delphi 7 too. With margins support.

The package is released under double license: free (GPL) and chargeable for commercial applications.
