The class of layout-spacing sub-objects of object-editor dialogs. If the default spacing that is used when an object-editor automatically lays out its widgets is not satisfactory, then the object-editor can be given a layout-spacing object whose properties specify custom spacing values.

Creating an object-editor programmatically with a layout-spacing sub-object would have this general format:

(make-window :my-object-editor
  :class 'object-editor
  :edited-class ...
  :edited-slots ...
  :layout-spacing (make-instance 'layout-spacing
                    :layout-widget-spacing 4
                    :layout-outer-margin 12

Here are the particular properties of a layout-spacing object:
