Arrangement

@Immutable object Arrangement
kotlin.Any
   ↳ androidx.compose.foundation.layout.Arrangement

Used to specify the arrangement of the layout's children in layouts like Row or Column in the main axis direction (horizontal and vertical, respectively).

Summary

Nested classes

abstract

Used to specify the horizontal arrangement of the layout's children in layouts like Row.

abstract

Used to specify the horizontal arrangement of the layout's children in horizontal layouts like Row, or the vertical arrangement of the layout's children in vertical layouts like Column.

abstract

Used to specify the vertical arrangement of the layout's children in layouts like Column.

Public methods
Arrangement.Horizontal

Place children horizontally one next to the other and align the obtained group according to an alignment.

Arrangement.Vertical

Place children vertically one next to the other and align the obtained group according to an alignment.

Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical
spacedBy(space: Dp)

Place children such that each two adjacent ones are spaced by a fixed space distance across the main axis.

Arrangement.Horizontal
spacedBy(space: Dp, alignment: Alignment.Horizontal)

Place children horizontally such that each two adjacent ones are spaced by a fixed space distance.

Arrangement.Vertical
spacedBy(space: Dp, alignment: Alignment.Vertical)

Place children vertically such that each two adjacent ones are spaced by a fixed space distance.

Properties
Arrangement.Vertical

Place children vertically such that they are as close as possible to the bottom of the main axis.

Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical

Place children such that they are as close as possible to the middle of the main axis.

Arrangement.Horizontal

Place children horizontally such that they are as close as possible to the end of the main axis.

Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical

Place children such that they are spaced evenly across the main axis, including free space before the first child and after the last child, but half the amount of space existing otherwise between two consecutive children.

Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical

Place children such that they are spaced evenly across the main axis, without free space before the first child or after the last child.

Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical

Place children such that they are spaced evenly across the main axis, including free space before the first child and after the last child.

Arrangement.Horizontal

Place children horizontally such that they are as close as possible to the beginning of the horizontal axis (left if the layout direction is LTR, right otherwise).

Arrangement.Vertical

Place children vertically such that they are as close as possible to the top of the main axis.

Public methods

aligned

@Stable fun aligned(alignment: Alignment.Horizontal): Arrangement.Horizontal

Place children horizontally one next to the other and align the obtained group according to an alignment.

Parameters
alignment: Alignment.Horizontal The alignment of the children inside the parent.

aligned

@Stable fun aligned(alignment: Alignment.Vertical): Arrangement.Vertical

Place children vertically one next to the other and align the obtained group according to an alignment.

Parameters
alignment: Alignment.Vertical The alignment of the children inside the parent.

spacedBy

@Stable fun spacedBy(space: Dp): Arrangement.HorizontalOrVertical

Place children such that each two adjacent ones are spaced by a fixed space distance across the main axis. The spacing will be subtracted from the available space that the children can occupy. The space can be negative, in which case children will overlap.

Parameters
space: Dp The space between adjacent children.

spacedBy

@Stable fun spacedBy(
    space: Dp,
    alignment: Alignment.Horizontal
): Arrangement.Horizontal

Place children horizontally such that each two adjacent ones are spaced by a fixed space distance. The spacing will be subtracted from the available width that the children can occupy. An alignment can be specified to align the spaced children horizontally inside the parent, in case there is empty width remaining. The space can be negative, in which case children will overlap.

Parameters
space: Dp The space between adjacent children.
