PostScript::Report::Role::Container - A component that has components
This document describes version 0.07 of PostScript::Report::Role::Container, released April 4, 2012 as part of PostScript-Report version 0.10.
This role describes a Component that contains other Components.
In addition to the standard attributes, a Container provides the following:
These attributes are provided so that child components can inherit them. They have no effect on the container itself. "Optional Attributes" in PostScript::Report::Role::Component.
This is an arrayref containing the child Components.
This is a hash of additional attributes that can be inherited by child Components. You wouldn't normally set this directly, because PostScript::Report::Builder will automatically move any unknown attributes into this hash.
(Inherited) This is used by VBoxes to set the height of children that don't specify their own height. PostScript::Report::VBox.
The Container role provides an
after draw modifier to draw a border around the container.
The container must still provide its own
Child Components call this method to get the inherited value of any non-standard style attribute.
The Container role provides an
after init modifier that calls
init on each child Component.
The following containers are available by default:
This draws its children in a horizontal row.
This draws its children in a vertical column.
