Target cell handle.
New cell width expressed as screen width.
1.0= 100% of screen width,
0.05= 5% of screen width.
The multiboard is right-aligned (begins at the right) at the window border. See Tasyen's The Big UI-Frame Tutorial for the explanation of screen width.
NOTE! Multiboard's total width is calculated based on ONLY the first row's widths.
Example: Your first row is very short, but second row is twice is long.
Result: The second row will not fit inside the table and overflow to the right, beyond the visible area.
Summary: To set the multiboard width, set the width of columns in the first row.
Although the column width is set immediately and items in the same row are moved left/right, the multiboard is not redrawn to accomodate the new width.
To update the entire multiboard's width, you must manually minimize/maximize the multiboard or call
For example, if you only change the width of cell at (x=0, y=0) to be 0.2x of screen width, then the cell (x=1, y=0) will be moved right beyond the visible screen.
Sets the new text width for the cell.
Default width is
0.03(3%), this is enough to fit 1-3 characters (depending on font and character).
