spacer

An element that takes up space but does not display anything. It is usually used to place spacing within a container. If you don't specify that the spacer has a size or is flexible, the spacer does not occupy any space. If you want a small gap, consider using a separator instead.

More information is available in the XUL tutorial.

Examples

<box>
  <button label="Left"/>
  <spacer flex="1"/>
  <button label="Right"/>
</box>
