Yep. In fact, I recommend that for all GUI toolkits; instead of
thinking about your layout in terms of positions of widgets on a
window, think about it in terms of what your toolkit provides you with
- usually that'll be some kind of tree structure of layout objects,
like vertical and horizontal boxes. And if you plan your layout that
way, you may as well just write it directly as code.
