There is a flexible height gallery, and it would be awesome it we could use a flexible width gallery as well. I'd like to use it to simulate tabs.
It's possible to do it today with a normal horizontal gallery, but it does not look good since some items will have lots of space, see the green rectangle in the attached image.
Today I use a drop down as menu, but with a flexible with gallery it could be done as in the rectangle, just looking way nicer
Great! I want to implement this flexible width in gallery too, but I don't know how.
As showed in the attached image, are they fixed width?
Yes, in my app they are fixed width. That's why some items have so much space. I did center the labels and the text in them and it was slightly better. With a flexible width it would look very good!
Don't forget to Vote on the idea to tell MS that we want this feature!
Found myself really wanting this today when I couldn't get Combo or Dropdowns to be large (wide) enough to read the text in a horizontal gallery.
I need that too, as flexible header row for a "super" gallery type custom component where the column widths - hence the header widths - need to be flexible.
