Automatic LayoutAutomatic layout relieves the programmer from much of the burden of laying out the components of a composite morph such as a dialog box. By allowing Morphic to handle the details of placing and resizing the components, the programmer can focus on the topology of the layout, without worrying about the exact positions and sizes. Automatic layout also allows composite morphs to adapt gracefully to size changes, including font size changes.
Layout morphs manage the placement and sizing of their submorphs. Layout morphs currently include rowMorphs, columnMorphs, frameMorphs and their descendants. All other morphs leave the size and placement of their submorphs alone.
