SOLVED LAYOUTGROUP Description Resource

Hello,

I want to create an LAYOUTGROUP with two column and I want to add a full width SEPARATOR between certain elements.
Here is my Description Resource code

GROUP ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES
{
	GROUP
	{
		LAYOUTGROUP; COLUMNS 2; DEFAULT 1;
		GROUP
		{	
			REAL MYOBJECT_WIDTH { UNIT METER; MIN 1.0; MAX 38000; MINSLIDER 0; MAXSLIDER 2000; STEP 1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_HEIGHT { UNIT METER; MIN 0.0; MAX 38000; MINSLIDER 0; MAXSLIDER 2000; STEP 1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_DEPTH { UNIT METER; MIN 1; MAX 100000; MINSLIDER 1; MAXSLIDER 3000; STEP 1; }
				
			SEPARATOR { LINE; }

			REAL MYOBJECT_FILLET_RADIUS { UNIT METER; MIN 0; MAX 100000; MINSLIDER 1; MAXSLIDER 700; STEP 0.1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_THICKNESS { UNIT METER; MIN 0; MAX 10000; STEP 1; }

			SEPARATOR	{ LINE; }
				
			LONG MYOBJECT_AXIS  
			{
				CYCLE
				{
					MYOBJECT_AXIS_XP;
					MYOBJECT_AXIS_XN;
					MYOBJECT_AXIS_ZP;
					MYOBJECT_AXIS_ZN;
				}
			}
		
			SEPARATOR	{ LINE; }

			BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_CAMERA {  }
			BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_TRANSPARENCY {  }
			BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_REFLECTION {  }
		}

		GROUP
		{
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_X { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_Y { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_Z { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
				
			SEPARATOR { LINE; }

			LONG MYOBJECT_FILLET_SUB	{ MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
		}
	}
}

And here is a screenshot of the result:

layoutgroup_description_resource_1.jpg

and here is an image of what I want to obtain as result (I want a full width separator line)

layoutgroup_description_resource_2.jpg

I tried with the following code, I obtain a full width separator but the first column elements doesn't have the same width

GROUP ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES
{		
	GROUP
	{
		LAYOUTGROUP; COLUMNS 2; DEFAULT 1;
		GROUP
		{	
			REAL MYOBJECT_WIDTH { UNIT METER; MIN 1.0; MAX 38000; MINSLIDER 0; MAXSLIDER 2000; STEP 1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_HEIGHT { UNIT METER; MIN 0.0; MAX 38000; MINSLIDER 0; MAXSLIDER 2000; STEP 1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_DEPTH { UNIT METER; MIN 1; MAX 100000; MINSLIDER 1; MAXSLIDER 3000; STEP 1; }
		}

		GROUP
		{
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_X { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_Y { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
			LONG MYOBJECT_SEGMENTS_Z { MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
		}
	}
		
        SEPARATOR { LINE; }

	GROUP
	{
		LAYOUTGROUP; COLUMNS 2; DEFAULT 1;
		GROUP
		{	
			REAL MYOBJECT_FILLET_RADIUS { UNIT METER; MIN 0; MAX 100000; MINSLIDER 1; MAXSLIDER 700; STEP 0.1; }
			REAL MYOBJECT_WALL_THICKNESS { UNIT METER; MIN 0; MAX 10000; STEP 1; }
		}

		GROUP
		{
			LONG MYOBJECT_FILLET_SUB	{ MIN 1; MAX 1000; }
		}
	}
		
	SEPARATOR	{ LINE; }
				
	LONG MYOBJECT_AXIS  
	{
		CYCLE
		{
			MYOBJECT_AXIS_XP;
			MYOBJECT_AXIS_XN;
			MYOBJECT_AXIS_ZP;
			MYOBJECT_AXIS_ZN;
		}
	}
		
	SEPARATOR	{ LINE; }

	BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_CAMERA {  }
	BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_TRANSPARENCY {  }
	BOOL MYOBJECT_SEEN_BY_REFLECTION {  }
}

Result:

Thank you.

Hi,

the trick is to use a dummy STATICTEXT element with the JOINENDSCALE flag. The example is taken from ddoc.res - the file for the project settings dialog. Rember you can (should) always use a text file search tool like Agent Ransack to peek into type, interface or smybol definitions to figure out how things are working.

CONTAINER Ddoc

	NAME Ddoc;

	GROUP DOCUMENT_GROUP_PROJECTSETTINGS

@zipit said in LAYOUTGROUP Description Resource:

STATICTEXT { JOINENDSCALE; }

I'm searching this solution for long time, thank you so much!!!
