[izpack-users] 3.9.0: textXGap and layoutAnchor question

Hi Yuri,

text, label and control gaps (and the combined) are detected
automatically. If there is no panel with a text-text layout,
it is not used. If you create one, then you can see it.

The paragraphYGap was the first non-detected gap. It should 
separate MultilineLabels which looks like paragraphs.
During developing I needed something like that for the x direction.
But a name like paragraphXGap is not really good, I thought.
Therefore I created the filler.
With this it is possible to use different gaps.

Gaps are created with 
IzPanelLayout.createVerticalFiller( number ) or
IzPanelLayout.createHorizontalFiller( number )

The standard IzPanels uses in the moment only once a
horizontal filler.
In my "private" panels I have over 40 horizontal filler.

In short words:
Filler ar only for people how made own panels.
