I am in progress of learning GTK+, and maybe using GTKD might not be the best way to do it, but it'll have to do. My error here is probably extremely stupid but I really couldn't figure it out.

When I create a MenuBar, it takes up all height available.

To get more control of how things are laid out you'll want to wrap thins
in a gtk.Box or gtl.Grid.

int main(string[] arguments) {
	Window window = new Window("Test");
	window.setDefaultSize(640, 360);

	auto menu = new MenuBar;
	auto menuItem = menu.append("File");
	auto menuItem2 = menu.append("Edit");


auto vbox = new Box(GtkOrientation.VERTICAL);
// Setting both expand and fill to false, so the extra
// space isn't used by the menu.
vbox.packStart(menu, false, false, 0);


return 0;


How to fix this?

Thanks, it did indeed work. Just one little note, new Box(GtkOrientation.VERTICAL); should be new Box(GtkOrientation.VERTICAL, 0);.
