NAME ^

Tickit::Widget::Placegrid - a placeholder grid display

DESCRIPTION ^

This class provides a widget which displays a simple grid pattern in its display area, and prints the size of the area in its centre.

It is intended as a placeholder for other widget code while applications are under development. It easily allows a container to have a child that can take any size, and will keep its window area painted (so avoiding bugs caused by "empty" containers that do not clear unused child areas).

STYLE ^

The default style pen is used as the widget pen. The following style pen prefixes are also used:

grid => PEN

The pen used to render the grid lines

CONSTRUCTOR ^

$placegrid = Tickit::Widget::Placegrid->new( %args )

Constructs a new Tickit::Widget::Placegrid object.

Takes the following named arguments.

title => STR

Optional. If provided, prints an identifying title just above the box dimensions in the centre of the grid.
