NAME ^

PostScript::ScheduleGrid::Role::Style - Something that customizes a cell's appearance

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.01 of PostScript::ScheduleGrid::Role::Style, released December 7, 2013 as part of PostScript-ScheduleGrid version 0.04.

DESCRIPTION ^

This role describes a style for displaying the contents of a cell in the grid. The class must provide a define_style method.

If a style has PostScript definitions that are invariant, it may define them by adding a function block under its class name (with :: replaced by _). If it needs more than one function block, it may append a hyphen and an arbitrary identifier.

The definitions must begin with the class name (with PostScript::ScheduleGrid::Style:: replaced by s and any remaining :: replaced by _. That prefix may be followed by a hypen and any legal PostScript identifier. For example, PostScript::ScheduleGrid::Style::Stripe can define PostScript identifiers beginning with sStripe-.

The name function created by the define_style method will be called with no parameters. The clipping path is set to the boundaries of the cell, and the current font is the grid's cell_font. The graphics state has been saved and will be restored after the cell's text is drawn.

The function must perform whatever drawing it wants to, and leave the color and font set for the cell's text.

ATTRIBUTES ^

name

This is the name of the PostScript function that the Style must define. It may also use any identifiers beginning with name followed by a hyphen for any purposes it likes.

METHODS ^

_ps_eval

  $style->_ps_eval(\$string, ...);

This method is provided by this role. It substitutes values from the object into each $string (which is modified in-place). Any number of string references may be passed.

The following substitutions are performed on each $string:

First, any $ followed by an identifier are replaced by calling that method on the object and passing its return value to PostScript::File's str function.

Second, any %{...} is replaced with the result of evaluating ... (which may not contain braces).

define_style

  $style->define_style($schedule_grid);

This method must return a string containg PostScript code to define the function specified by name. $schedule_grid is the PostScript::ScheduleGrid object using the style.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

PostScript::ScheduleGrid::Role::Style requires no configuration files or environment variables.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
