Hi Phil, 

Several ways of doing this in Qt 4: 


- Remove any layout in the container if present
- Place the 9 edit boxes, roughly in line with each other
- Apply the grid layout


- Remove any layout in the container if present
- Add first edit box
- Apply the grid layout
- Add the other two edits for a row or column
- Drag another edit box, a blue line should appear to add another row or
- Release the drag, the grid should create the extra row or column, with the
edit box only occupying one cell
- Drag in the other edit boxes, a red rectangle should appear in the
unoccupied cells. 
- Repeat for the third row or column. 

Hope that helps,
