i've written a game board currently but its minimal. i draw the board and then i've added two labels that i've postiioned off to the right side with setlocation. I dont know that set location will work as i add more controls so i'm looking for a better way.
currently i draw the board with drawing methods in teh area starting at 0,0 to an x dimension of 3/4 the current window width and a y dimension of 4/5 the current window height. the rest of the area should be available for controls like labels and a console window and some type of control i'm going to use for a move list and a scroll bar.
How do i reserve the area for the board and then have the freedom of using some kind of flow layout in the other areas.
I dont know a lot about layouts but i'm willing to learn and was hoping someone can get me started on what sort of layout management i need for this task.
