Scatter Layout

.. versionadded:: 1.6.0

This layout behaves just like a
When a widget is added with position = (0,0) to a :class:`ScatterLayout`,
the child widget will also move when you change the position of the
:class:`ScatterLayout`. The child widget's coordinates remain
(0,0) as they are relative to the parent layout.

However, since :class:`ScatterLayout` is implemented using a
widget, you can also translate, rotate and scale the layout using touches
or clicks, just like in the case of a normal Scatter widget, and the child
widgets will behave as expected.

In contrast to a Scatter, the Layout favours 'hint' properties, such as
size_hint, size_hint_x, size_hint_y and pos_hint.

.. note::

    The :class:`ScatterLayout` is implemented as a
    inside a :class:`~kivy.uix.scatter.Scatter`.

.. warning::

    Since the actual :class:`ScatterLayout` is a
    :class:`~kivy.uix.scatter.Scatter`, its
    add_widget and remove_widget functions are overridden to add children
    to the embedded :class:`~kivy.uix.floatlayout.FloatLayout` (accessible as
    the `content` property of :class:`~kivy.uix.scatter.Scatter`)
    automatically. So if you want to access the added child elements,
    you need self.content.children instead of self.children.

.. warning::

    The :class:`ScatterLayout` was introduced in 1.7.0 and was called
    :class:`~kivy.uix.relativelayout.RelativeLayout` in prior versions.
    The :class:`~kivy.uix.relativelayout.RelativeLayout` is now an optimized
    implementation that uses only a positional transform to avoid some of the
    heavier calculation involved for :class:`~kivy.uix.scatter.Scatter`.
