layout manager

a program that automatically determines the layout of graphics and user interface elements based on relationships and restrictions specified by the designer/programmer. A layout manager is particularly useful for handling layouts when a programmer cannot be certain of what graphic elements will be present or what their dimensions will be, and helps when a different font is used or the text is translated, thus changing the size of text elements in a layout.
