Thanks Jannis,

I have begun implementing it based off of FXVerticalFrame. Here's a
related question. This widget needs to expand/contract based on the
number of items that have been added to it. I can do this after
everything is created and call myframe.create; myframe.recalc to
update the controls that need to be drawn or hidden and resize my
frame accordingly. But! If I attempt to add or remove an item
before the rest of the containing window is drawn for the first time,
I get a segfault when trying to .create. Is there a way to test if
I need to run .create or should I be doing something different?
