Overview

The Box widget allows you to arrange various elements within it. This widget is separate and adaptive and acts as the layout's building block.

The following code adds a simple Box containing three items to your page. These items are plain texts placed in differently-colored rectangles arranged in a row. Equal ratio option values ensure they have equal widths.
