I just wanted to verify whether the behavior I am seeing is expected before coding around it.
In jqxLayout, if I set the width of a layoutGroup, it is immediately converted to a percentage width.
For example, in the demo
The left-hand tool panel is a layoutGroup with a width of 300, but the inspected element has a width of 37.5%.
Therefore, is it correct that all initial widths are automatically converted to percentages?
The reason I ask is two-fold:
1. Is there a recommended way to set the widths to not be percentages so that resized windows maintain a consistent width and/or is there a reason that it must be left as percentages?
2. In my previous question about modifying layouts:
I was told to use loadLayout and modify the layout reference directly. When I do this, the widths are not automatically converted to percentages. Is this a problem in this context?
