We show here how to group elements inside a common parent.
In the first example, the parent is an invisible element.
In the second example, the parent is an instance of thorpy.Box.
import pygame, random
W, H = 1200, 700
screen = pygame.display.set_mode((W,H))
thorpy.init(screen, thorpy.theme_classic) #bind screen to gui elements and set theme
## *** Example 1 *** (comment out to try)
## group some elements in an invisible element.
# Mode is "h" (horizontal), "v" (vertical), "grid" (with optionnal args nx and ny) or None
group = thorpy.Group([thorpy.Button("GroupOne "+str(i)) for i in range(6)], "grid")
## *** Example 2 *** (comment out to try) : group some elements in a Box element.
## group some elements in a box. If you want a specific sorting fashing, indicate it afterwards.
group2 = thorpy.Box([thorpy.Button("GroupTwo "+str(i)) for i in range(6)], sort_immediately=False)
group2.sort_children("grid", nx=3, ny=2) #nx and ny are optional
metagroup = thorpy.Group([group, group2], gap=20)
#For the sake of brevity, the main loop is replaced here by a shorter but blackbox-like method
player = metagroup.get_updater()
