The box-wide spacing setting determines how much blank space to leave between children; so this value is multiplied by the number of chilren minus one, and added to the base size request. Note that spacing does not belong to a child; it is blank space between children and is unaffected by the expand and fill parameters. Padding, on the other hand, is the space around each child and is affected by the child’s packing parameters. 5. All containers have a "border width" setting; two times the border width is added to the request, representing a border on either side.

If no child can expand, the extra is used to add more space in the center of the box, between the start-packed widgets and the end-packed widgets. 3. If the box is homogeneous, the extra is distributed according to need; those children who requested more space get less extra, so that everyone ends up with the same amount of space. The expand parameter is ignored for homogeneous boxes—extra is distributed to all children, not just the expandable ones. 4. When a child gets some extra space, there are two possibilities.
