Hi Guys,

Well, for a long time I have been bugged by trying to have two grids side by side in a column layout but have them take up the entire height of the panel/container that they are in. So .... with a little bit of looking .... and with a very, very small modification to the existing column layout code I've been able to finally achieve what I wanted. So, without further adieu I give you the Fit Column Layout. :D

This should work for other versions of ExtJS but in case it doesn't work, the magic line that finally made it all possible ... was this one:



c.setSize(Math.floor(c.columnWidth*pw) - c.getEl().getMargins('lr'), h);


The minor modification I was talking about ... is the addition of the "h" value to the setSize function which gets defined further up in the "onLayout" function.

Enjoy ;)

/**
* @class Ext.layout.FitColumnLayout
* @extends Ext.layout.ContainerLayout
* <p>This is the layout style of choice for creating structural layouts in a multi-column format where the width of
* each column can be specified as a percentage or fixed width, but the height is allowed to vary based on the content.
* This class is intended to be extended or created via the layout:'column' {@link Ext.Container#layout} config,
* and should generally not need to be created directly via the new keyword.</p>
* <p>ColumnLayout does not have any direct config options (other than inherited ones), but it does support a
* specific config property of <b><tt>columnWidth</tt></b> that can be included in the config of any panel added to it. The
* layout will use the columnWidth (if present) or width of each panel during layout to determine how to size each panel.
* If width or columnWidth is not specified for a given panel, its width will default to the panel's width (or auto).</p>
* <p>The width property is always evaluated as pixels, and must be a number greater than or equal to 1.
* The columnWidth property is always evaluated as a percentage, and must be a decimal value greater than 0 and
* less than 1 (e.g., .25).</p>
* <p>The basic rules for specifying column widths are pretty simple. The logic makes two passes through the
* set of contained panels. During the first layout pass, all panels that either have a fixed width or none
* specified (auto) are skipped, but their widths are subtracted from the overall container width. During the second
* pass, all panels with columnWidths are assigned pixel widths in proportion to their percentages based on
* the total <b>remaining</b> container width. In other words, percentage width panels are designed to fill the space
* left over by all the fixed-width and/or auto-width panels. Because of this, while you can specify any number of columns
* with different percentages, the columnWidths must always add up to 1 (or 100%) when added together, otherwise your
* layout may not render as expected. Example usage:</p>
* <pre><code>
// All columns are percentages -- they must add up to 1
var p = new Ext.Panel({
title: 'Column Layout - Percentage Only',
layout:'fitcolumn',
items: [{
title: 'Column 1',
columnWidth: .25
},{
title: 'Column 2',
columnWidth: .6
},{
title: 'Column 3',
columnWidth: .15
}]
});

// Mix of width and columnWidth -- all columnWidth values must add up
// to 1. The first column will take up exactly 120px, and the last two
// columns will fill the remaining container width.
var p = new Ext.Panel({
title: 'Column Layout - Mixed',
layout:'fitcolumn',
items: [{
title: 'Column 1',
width: 120
},{
title: 'Column 2',
columnWidth: .8
},{
title: 'Column 3',
columnWidth: .2
}]
});
</code></pre>

Why not just use HBoxLayout with align : stretch?

I tried that originally with Ext3 but for some weird reason the layout couldn't be found. Plus I needed this to work for Ext 2.3 and Ext3. This way I have something that works for both AND I get to give back to the community ;)
