NAME ^

Padre::Wx::Main - The main window for the Padre IDE

DESCRIPTION ^

Padre::Wx::Main implements Padre's main window. It is the window containing the menus, the notebook with all opened tabs, the various sub-windows (outline, subs, output, errors, etc).

It inherits from Wx::Frame, so check Wx documentation to see all the available methods that can be applied to it besides the added ones (see below).

PUBLIC API ^

Constructor

There's only one constructor for this class.

new

    my $main = Padre::Wx::Main->new($ide);

Create and return a new Padre main window. One should pass a Padre object as argument, to get a reference to the Padre application.

Accessors

The following methods access the object attributes. They are both getters and setters, depending on whether you provide them with an argument. Use them wisely.

Accessors to GUI elements:

Accessors to operating data:

Accessors that may not belong to this class:

left

    my $panel = $main->left;

Returns the left toolbar container panel, creating it if needed.

right

    my $panel = $main->right;

Returns the right toolbar container panel, creating it if needed.

bottom

    my $panel = $main->bottom;

Returns the bottom toolbar container panel, creating it if needed.

find

    my $dialog = $main->find;

Returns the Find dialog, creating it if needed.

findfast

    my $find = $main->findfast;

Returns the Fast Find panel, creating it if needed.

findinfiles

    my $dialog = $main->findinfiles;

Returns the Find in Files dialog, creating it if needed.

foundinfiles

    my $panel = $main->foundinfiles;

Returns the Find in Files results panel, creating it if needed.

replace

    my $dialog = $main->replace;

Return current Find and Replace dialog. Create a new one if needed.

goto

    my $dialog = $main->goto;

Return the Goto dialog. Create a new one if needed.

Public Methods

load_files

    $main->load_files;

Load any default files: session from command-line, explicit list on command- line, or last session if user has this setup, a new file, or nothing.

lock

  my $lock = $main->lock('UPDATE', 'BUSY', 'refresh_toolbar');

Create and return a guard object that holds resource locks of various types.

The method takes a parameter list of the locks you wish to exist for the current scope. Special types of locks are provided in capitals, refresh/method locks are provided in lowercase.

The UPDATE lock creates a Wx repaint lock using the built in Wx::WindowUpdateLocker class.

You should use an update lock during GUI construction/modification to prevent screen flicker. As a side effect of not updating, the GUI changes happen significantly faster as well. Update locks should only be held for short periods of time, as the operating system will begin to treat your application as "hung" if an update lock persists for more than a few seconds. In this situation, you may begin to see GUI corruption.

The BUSY lock creates a Wx "busy" lock using the built in Wx::WindowDisabler class.

You should use a busy lock during times when Padre has to do a long and/or complex operation in the foreground, or when you wish to disable use of any user interface elements until a background thread is finished.

Busy locks can be held for long periods of time, however your users may start to suspect trouble if you do not provide any periodic feedback to them.

Lowercase lock names are used to delay the firing of methods that will themselves generate GUI events you may want to delay until you are sure you want to rebuild the GUI.

For example, opening a file will require a Padre::Wx::Main refresh call, which will itself generate more refresh calls on the directory browser, the function list, output window, menus, and so on.

But if you open more than one file at a time, you don't want to refresh the menu for the first file, only to do it again on the second, third and fourth files.

By creating refresh locks in the top level operation, you allow the lower level operation to make requests for parts of the GUI to be refreshed, but have the actual refresh actions delayed until the lock expires.

This should make operations with a high GUI intensity both simpler and faster.

The name of the lowercase MUST be the name of a Padre::Wx::Main method, which will be fired (with no parameters) when the method lock expires.

locked

This method provides the ability to check if a resource is currently locked.

Single Instance Server

Padre embeds a small network server to handle single instance. Here are the methods that allow to control this embedded server.

single_instance_address

    $main->single_instance_address;

Determines the location of the single instance server for this instance of Padre.

single_instance_start

    $main->single_instance_start;

Start the embedded server. Create it if it doesn't exist. Return true on success, die otherwise.

single_instance_stop

    $main->single_instance_stop;

Stop & destroy the embedded server if it was running. Return true on success.

single_instance_running

    my $is_running = $main->single_instance_running;

Return true if the embedded server is currently running.

single_instance_connect

    $main->single_instance_connect;

Callback called when a client is connecting to embedded server. This is the case when user starts a new Padre, and preference "open all documents in single Padre instance" is checked.

single_instance_command

    $main->single_instance_command( $line );

Callback called when a client has issued a command $line while connected on embedded server. Current supported commands are open $file and focus.

Window Geometry

Query properties about the state and shape of the main window

window_width

    my $width = $main->window_width;

Return the main window width.

window_height

    my $width = $main->window_height;

Return the main window height.

window_left

    my $left = $main->window_left;

Return the main window position from the left of the screen.

window_top

    my $top = $main->window_top;

Return the main window position from the top of the screen.

window_save

    $main->window_save;

Saves the current main window geometry (left, top, width, height, maximized).

Called during Maximize, Iconize, ShowFullScreen and Padre shutdown so we can restart the next Padre instance at the last good non-Maximize/Iconize location.

Saves and returns true if and only the window is regular or maximized.

Skips and returns false if the window is currently hidden, iconised, or full screen.

Refresh Methods

Those methods refresh parts of Padre main window. The term refresh and the following methods are reserved for fast, blocking, real-time updates to the GUI, implying rapid changes.

refresh

    $main->refresh;

Force refresh of all elements of Padre main window. (see below for individual refresh methods)

add_refresh_listener

Adds an object which will have its ->refresh method called whenever the main refresh event is triggered. The refresh listener is stored as a weak reference so make sure that you keep the listener alive elsewhere.

If your object does not have a ->refresh method, pass in a code reference - it will be called instead.

Note that this method must return really quick. If you plan to do work that takes longer, launch it via the Action::Queue mechanism and perform it in the background.

refresh_title

Sets or updates the Window title.

refresh_syntax

    $main->refresh_syntax;

Do a refresh of document syntax checking. This is a "rapid" change, since actual syntax check is happening in the background.

refresh_vcs

    $main->refresh_vcs;

Do a refresh of version control checking. This is a "rapid" change, since actual version control check is happening in the background.

refresh_outline

    $main->refresh_outline;

Force a refresh of the outline panel.

refresh_menu

    $main->refresh_menu;

Force a refresh of all menus. It can enable / disable menu entries depending on current document or Padre internal state.

refresh_menu_plugins

    $main->refresh_menu_plugins;

Force a refresh of just the plug-in menus.

refresh_notebook

    $main->refresh_notebook

Force a refresh of the notebook panel titles

refresh_windowlist

    $main->refresh_windowlist

Force a refresh of the list of windows in the window menu

refresh_recent

Specifically refresh the Recent Files entries in the File dialog

refresh_toolbar

    $main->refresh_toolbar;

Force a refresh of Padre's toolbar.

refresh_status

    $main->refresh_status;

Force a refresh of Padre's status bar.

refresh_status_template

    $main->refresh_status_templat;

Force a refresh of Padre's status bar. The part that is driven by a template.

refresh_cursorpos

    $main->refresh_cursorpos;

Force a refresh of the position of the cursor on Padre's status bar.

refresh_functions

    $main->refresh_functions;

Force a refresh of the function list on the right.

refresh_tasks

    $main->refresh_tasks;

Force a refresh of the TODO list on the right.

refresh_directory

Force a refresh of the directory tree

refresh_aui

This is a refresh method wrapper around the AUI Update method so that it can be lock-managed by the existing locking system.

refresh_diff

    $main->refresh_diff;

Do a refresh of saved and current document differences. This is a "rapid" change, since actual calculating differences is happening in the background.

refresh_breakpoint_panel

    $main->refresh_breakpoint_panel;

Refresh of the Breakpoints panel if open, required as we load and switch tabs.

Interface Rebuilding Methods

Those methods reconfigure Padre's main window in case of drastic changes (locale, etc.)

change_locale

    $main->change_locale( $locale );

Change Padre's locale to $locale. This will update the GUI to reflect the new locale.

relocale

    $main->relocale;

The term and method relocale is reserved for functionality intended to run when the application wishes to change locale (and wishes to do so without restarting).

Note at this point, that the new locale has already been fixed, and this method is usually called by change_locale().

restyle

    $main->restyle;

The term and method restyle is reserved for code that needs to be run when the Padre::Wx::Theme of the editor has changed and the colouring of the application needs to be changed without restarting.

Note that the new style must be applied to configuration before this method is called, and this method is usually called by the apply handler for the editor_style configuration setting.

rebuild_toolbar

    $main->rebuild_toolbar;

Destroy and rebuild the toolbar. This method is useful because the toolbar is not really flexible, and most of the time it's better to recreate it from scratch.

Tools and Dialogs

Those methods deal with the various panels that Padre provides, and allow to show or hide them.

find_view

    my $name = $main->find_view('Padre::Wx::FunctionList');

The find_view method locates the name of the panel in which a tool is currently being shown. We assume each tool is only being shown once.

Returns the name of the panel in string form (such as 'left') or false if the view is not currently being shown.

show_view

    $main->show_view( functions => 1 );

The show_view methods displays or hides a named view of the main window.

show_functions

    $main->show_functions( $visible );

Show the functions panel on the right if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_tasks

    $main->show_tasks( $visible );

Show the to do panel on the right if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

    $main->show_output( $visible );

Show the output panel at the bottom if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_findfast

    $main->show_findfast( $visible );

Show the Fast Find panel at the bottom of the editor area if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_foundinfiles

    $main->show_foundinfiles( $visible );

Show the Find in Files panel at the bottom if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_replaceinfiles

    $main->show_replaceinfiles( $visible );

Show the Replace in Files panel at the bottom if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_command

    $main->show_command( $visible );

Show the command panel at the bottom if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_syntax

    $main->show_syntax( $visible );

Show the syntax panel at the bottom if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_vcs

    $main->show_vcs( $visible );

show_debugoutput

    $main->show_debugoutput( $visible );

Show the version control panel at the left if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

show_debugger

    $main->show_debugger( $visible );

Show the version control panel at the left if $visible is true. Hide it otherwise. If $visible is not provided, the method defaults to show the panel.

Introspection

The following methods allow to poke into Padre's internals.

current

    my $current = $main->current;

Creates a Padre::Current object for the main window, giving you quick and caching access to the current various object members.

See Padre::Current for more information.

pageids

    my @ids = $main->pageids;

Return a list of all current tab ids (integers) within the notebook.

editors

    my @editors = $main->editors;

Return a list of all current editors. Those are the real objects, not the ids (see pageids() above).

Note: for now, this has the same meaning as pages() (see above), but this will change once we get project tabs or something else.

documents

    my @document = $main->documents;

Return a list of all current documents, in the specific order they are open in the notebook.

documents_modified

Returns a list of all modified documents, in the specific order they are open in the notebook.

Process Execution

The following methods run an external command, for example to evaluate current document.

on_run_command

    $main->on_run_command;

Prompt the user for a command to run, then run it with run_command() (see below).

Note: it probably needs to be combined with run_command() itself.

on_run_tdd_tests

   $main->on_run_tdd_tests;

Callback method, to build and then call on_run_tests

on_run_tests

    $main->on_run_tests;

Callback method, to run the project tests and harness them.

on_run_this_test

    $main->on_run_this_test;

Callback method, to run the currently open test through prove.

on_open_in_file_browser

    $main->on_open_in_file_browser( $filename );

Opens the current $filename using the operating system's file browser

run_command

    $main->run_command( $command );

Run $command and display the result in the output panel.

run_document

    $main->run_document( $debug )

Run current document. If $debug is true, document will be run with diagnostics and various debug options.

Note: this should really be somewhere else, but can stay here for now.

Session Support

Those methods deal with Padre sessions. A session is a set of files / tabs opened, with the position within the files saved, as well as the document that has the focus.

capture_session

    my @session = $main->capture_session;

Capture list of opened files, with information. Return a list of Padre::DB::SessionFile objects.

open_session

    $main->open_session( $session );

Try to close all files, then open all files referenced in the given $session (a Padre::DB::Session object). No return value.

save_session

    $main->save_session( $session, @session );

Try to save @session files (Padre::DB::SessionFile objects, such as what is returned by capture_session() - see above) to database, associated to $session. Note that $session should already exist.

User Interaction

Various methods to help send information to user.

Some methods are inherited from Padre::Wx::Role::Dialog.

status

    $main->status($msg);

Temporarily change the status bar leftmost block only to some message.

This is a super-quick method intended for transient messages as short as a few tens of milliseconds (for example printing all directories read during a recursive file scan).

info

    $main->info($msg);

Print a message on the status bar or within a dialog box depending on the users preferences setting.

The dialog has only a OK button and there is no return value.

prompt

    my $value = $main->prompt( $title, $subtitle, $key );

Prompt user with a dialog box about the value that $key should have. Return this value, or undef if user clicked cancel.

simple_prompt

    my $value = $main->simple_prompt( $title, $subtitle, $default_text );

Prompt user with a dialog box about the value that $key should have. Return this value, or undef if user clicked cancel.

Search and Replace

These methods provide the highest level abstraction for entry into the various search and replace functions and dialogs.

However, they still represent abstract logic and should NOT be tied directly to keystroke or menu events.

find_dialog

    $main->find_dialog;

Show the find dialog, escalating from the fast find if needed

search_next

  # Next match for a new explicit search
  $main->search_next( $search );

  # Next match on current search
  $main->search_next;

Find the next match for the current search.

If no files are open, silently do nothing (don't even remember the new search)

search_previous

  # Previous match for a new search
  $main->search_previous( $search );

  # Previous match on current search (or show Find dialog if none)
  $main->search_previous;

Find the previous match for the current search, or spawn the Find dialog.

If no files are open, do nothing.

replace_next

  # Next replace for a new search
  $main->replace_next( $search );

  # Next replace on current search (or show Find dialog if none)
  $main->replace_next;

Replace the next match for the current search, or spawn the Replace dialog.

If no files are open, do nothing.

replace_all

  # Replace all for a new search
  $main->replace_all( $search );

  # Replace all for the current search (or show Replace dialog if none)
  $main->replace_all;

Replace all matches for the current search, or spawn the Replace dialog.

If no files are open, do nothing.

General Events

Those methods are the various callbacks registered in the menus or whatever widgets Padre has.

on_brace_matching

    $main->on_brace_matching;

Jump to brace matching current the one at current position.

on_autocompletion

    $main->on_autocompletion;

Try to auto complete current word being typed, depending on document type.

on_activate

The on_activate method is called when Padre has been in the background for some period of time, and has just returned to the foreground.

It calls a subset of refresh methods where something may have been changed by the user while they were using some other program that wasn't Padre.

on_deactivate

The on_deactivate method is called when the user has switched away from Padre to some other application.

Currently all this does is hide away from short-lived tools like Fast Find if they are open, so that when the user returns it is not to a stale UI context.

on_close_window

Callback when window is about to be closed. This is our last chance to veto the $event close, e.g. when some files are not yet saved.

If close is confirmed, save configuration to disk. Also, capture current session to be able to restore it next time if user set Padre to open last session on start-up. Clean up all Task Manager's tasks.

setup_editors

    $main->setup_editors( @files );

Setup (new) tabs for @files, and update the GUI. If @files is undef, open an empty document.

on_new

    $main->on_new;

Create a new empty tab. No return value.

setup_editor

    $main->setup_editor( $file );

Setup a new tab / buffer and open $file, then update the GUI. Recycle current buffer if there's only one empty tab currently opened. If $file is already opened, focus on the tab displaying it. Finally, if $file does not exist, create an empty file before opening it.

create_tab

    my $tab = $main->create_tab;

Create a new tab in the notebook, and return its id (an integer).

on_deparse

Show what perl thinks about your code using B::Deparse

on_open_selection

    $main->on_open_selection;

Try to open current selection in a new tab. Different combinations are tried in order: as full path, as path relative to cwd (where the editor was started), as path to relative to where the current file is, if we are in a Perl file or Perl environment also try if the thing might be a name of a module and try to open it locally or from @INC.

No return value.

on_open_all_recent_files

    $main->on_open_all_recent_files;

Try to open all recent files within Padre. No return value.

Should be merged with ->on_open or at least a browsing function should be added.

on_open

    $main->on_open;

Prompt user for file(s) to open, and open them as new tabs. No return value.

on_open_with_default_system_editor

    $main->on_open_with_default_system_editor($filename);

    $main->on_open_last_closed_file;

Opens the last closed file in similar fashion to Chrome and Firefox.

reload_editor

    $main->reload_editor;

Returns 1 on success and 0 in case of and error.

reload_editors

    my $success = $main->reload_editors(@editors);

Reloads a series of editors.

Returns true upon success, false otherwise.

reload_all

    my $success = $main->reload_all;

Reload all open files from disk.

reload_dialog

  $main->reload_dialog;

Displays the "Reload Files" dialog, asking the user which files should be reloaded and reloading them as specified.

on_save

    my $success = $main->on_save;

Try to save current document. Prompt user for a file name if document was new (see on_save_as() above). Return true if document has been saved, false otherwise.

on_save_as

    my $was_saved = $main->on_save_as;

Prompt user for a new file name to save current document, and save it. Returns true if saved, false if cancelled.

on_save_intuition

    my $success = $main->on_save_intuition;

Try to automatically determine an appropriate file name and save it, based entirely on the content of the file.

Only do this for new documents, otherwise behave like a regular save.

on_save_all

    my $success = $main->on_save_all;

Try to save all opened documents. Return true if all documents were saved, false otherwise.

_save_buffer

    my $success = $main->_save_buffer($id);

Try to save buffer in tab $id. This is the method used underneath by all on_save_*() methods. It will check if document has been updated out of Padre before saving, and report an error if something went wrong. Return true if buffer was saved, false otherwise.

on_close

    $main->on_close( $event );

Handler when there is a close $event. Veto it if it's from the AUI notebook, since Wx will try to close the tab no matter what. Otherwise, close current tab. No return value.

close

    my $success = $main->close( $id );

Request to close document in tab $id, or current one if no $id provided. Return true if closed, false otherwise.

close_all

    my $success = $main->close_all( $skip );

close_where

    # Close all files in current project
    my $project = Padre::Current->document->project_dir;
    my $success = $main->close_where( sub {
        $_[0]->project_dir eq $project
    } );

The close_where method is for closing multiple document windows. It takes a subroutine as a parameter and calls that subroutine for each currently open document, passing the document as the first parameter.

Any documents that return true will be closed.

on_delete

    $main->on_delete;

Close the current tab and remove the associated file from disk. No return value.

No return value.

on_prev_pane

    $main->on_prev_pane;

Put focus on tab previous to current document. Currently, only right to left order is supported, but later on it can be extended to follow a reverse last seen order.

No return value.

on_join_lines

No return value.

STC related methods

Those methods are needed to have a smooth STC experience.
