modifying GridLayout?

For the purpose of my program, I figured a grid layout would be preferable. However, GridLayout arranges items like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
And I want it to lay them out like this:
1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9
Is there anyway I can modify the GridLayout to output my items vertically instead of horizontally? If not, what alternative layout should I use to acheive such distribution?
Let me know! Thanks

Don't know if you can do it automatically, but this seems to work OK
