Yu can actually do this in FXRuby.
Usually, you'd subclass a container widget like FXPacker, FXMatrix or
FXVerticalFrame. That's the most
preferable way to easily to manage and react child widgets. Even in C++
that's the best solution since
most of the child wigets are going to be automatically destroyed by
their parent, then.
