New to reaction programming and I am having a bit of trouble understanding a couple concepts. One thing I am trying to do is completely control positioning of gadgets utilizing LAYOUT_NoLayout
1. Without using GIMMIEZEROZERO on the window attribute how do you get the proper metrics for the borders and other gadgets?
2. The label image class.
How do you control the size and position of label in a layout if you are using so you have manual control over placement like you can with gadgets.
Hopefully some of you can point me in right direction. I have been reading all the articles here and have gleaned much but I am really trying to wrap my head around some of the conceptual differences from other GUI APIs. ie. no child windows, labels are not gadgets etc...
