NAME ^

Curses::Toolkit::Widget - base class for widgets

VERSION ^

version 0.207

DESCRIPTION ^

Base class for widgets

CONSTRUCTOR ^

None, this is an abstract class

METHODS ^

set_name

Set the name of the widget. It's only a help, the name is used only in error message, so that you know which sicget it is talking about. Default name is 'unknown'.

  input  : the name
  output : the widget

get_name

Get the name of a widget

  input  : the widget
  output : the name

set_sensitive

  $widget->set_sensitive(1); # set this widget to be sensitive
  $widget->set_sensitive(0); # set this widget to be non sensitive

Sets the sensitivity on/off on the widget. non-sensitive widgets can be seen as "greyed-out"

  input : a boolean
  output : the widget

is_sensitive

Retrieves the sensitivity setting of the widget.

  input : none
  output : true if the widget is sensitive, or false if not

set_visible

  $widget->set_visible(1); # set this widget to be visible
  $widget->set_visible(0); # set this widget to be non visible

Sets the visibility on/off on the widget. non-visible widgets are not displayed, but they still take space

  input : a boolean
  output : the widget

is_visible

Retrieves the visibility setting of the widget.

  input : none
  output : true if the widget is visible, or false if not

set_property

  $widget->set_property('group name', 'property name', 'value');
  $widget->set_property('group name', { name1 => 'value1', ... });

Sets a single property or a whole group of property

properties are arbitrary caracteristics of widgets. They are grouped by groups. To set a property, you need to specify the group name, then the property name, then the value name. However you can specify the group name, and a hash representing this group values.

Returns the widget

get_property

  my $value = $widget->get_property('group name', 'property name');
  my $group_hash = $widget->get_property('group name');

Return the property or the group of property of a widget.

set_theme_property

  $widget->set_theme_property('property name', 'value');
  $widget->set_theme_property({ name1 => 'value1', ... });

Sets a single theme property or a whole group of theme property

Theme properties are arbitrary theme caracteristics of widgets. They are specifically theme oriented properties. To set a theme property, you need to specify the property name, then the value name. However you can specify a hash representing the values.

Returns the widget;

get_theme_property

  my $value = $widget->get_theme_property('property name');
  my $hash = $widget->get_theme_property();

Return the theme property or the hash of theme properties of a widget.

add_event_listener

  $widget->add_event_listener($event_listener);

Adds an event listener to the widget. That allows the widget to respond to some events. You probably don't want to use this method. Please see signal_connect and possible_signals instead.

  input : a Curses::Toolkit::EventListener
  output : the root window

get_event_listeners

  my @listeners = $widget->get_event_listener();

Returns the list of listeners connected to this widget.

  input : none
  output : an ARRAY of Curses::Toolkit::EventListener

fire_event

  $widget->fire_event($event, $widget, 1);

Sends an event to the mainloop so it gets dispatched. You probably don't want to use this method. Please see signal_connect and possible_signals instead.

  input  : a Curses::Toolkit::Event
           optional, a widget. if given, the event will apply on it only
  output : the widget

draw

This is the method that draws the widget itself. Default drawing for the widget. This method doesn't draw anything

render

Default rendering method for the widget. Any render method should call draw

  input  : curses_handler
  output : the widget

get_parent

Returns the parent of the widget

  input : none
  output : a Curses::Toolkit::Widget object or undef

set_theme_name

Set a specific display theme name.

  input  : a STRING, name of a class inheriting from Curses::Toolkit::Theme
           a BOOLEAN, if true, recursively sets the themes to the children
  output : the widget

get_theme_name

Get the theme name used for this widget. If there is none, tries to get it from the parent. If there is no parent, the default theme name is used

  input  : none
  output : a STRING, name of a class inheriting from Curses::Toolkit::Theme

get_theme

Get the widget current theme instance. If none is set, creates a new instance from the widget's theme name (see get_theme_name).

  input  : none
  output : a Curses::Toolkit::Theme object

get_window

  my $window = $widget->get_window();

If the widget has been added in a window, get_window() will return this window. If the widget is not part of window, void returned.

  input  : none
  output : the window in which the widget is (Curses::Toolkit::Widget::Window), or void

get_root_window

  my $window = $widget->get_root_window();

If the widget has been added in a window, get_root_window() will return the root window. If the widget is not part of window, void is returned.

  input  : none
  output : the root window (Curses::Toolkit), or void

get_coordinates

Get the absolute coordinates (see Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates )

  input  : none
  output : a Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates object

get_relatives_coordinates

Get the relative coordinates (see Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates )

  input  : none
  output : a Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates object

get_visible_shape

Gets the Coordinates of the part of the widget which is visible

  input  : none
  output : the shape (Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates) or void

get_visible_shape_for_children

Gets the Coordinates of the part of the widget which is visible and that its children can draw on. By default it's the same as get_visible_shape, but it may be overloaded to reduce it some time (for instance if the widget has borders)

  input  : none
  output : the shape (Curses::Toolkit::Object::Coordinates) or void

rebuild_all_coordinates

  $widget->rebuild_all_coordinates();

Recompute all the relative coordinates accross the whole window

  input  : none
  output : the widget

needs_redraw

  $widget->needs_redraw()

When called, signify to the root window that a redraw is needed. Has an effect only if a mainloop is active ( see POE::Component::Curses )

  input : none
  output : the widget

set_modal

unset_modal

get_next_focused_widget

  my $next_focused_widget = $widget->get_next_focused_widget();

Returns the widget next in the focus chain

  input : optional, a true value to start searching from $widget
  output : the next focused widget

possible_signals

my @signals = keys $widget->possible_signals();

returns the possible signals that can be used. See signal_connect to bind signals to action

  input  : none
  output : HASH, keys are signal names, values are signal classes

possible_signals

  # quick
  $widget->signal_connect(
      clicked => sub { do_something }
  );

  # additional args passed
  $widget->signal_connect(
      clicked => \&click_function, $additional, $arguments
  );

  # the corresponding method
  sub click_function {
    my ($event, $widget, $additional, $arguments) = @_;
    print STDERR "the signal came from " . ref($widget) . "\n";
    do_stuff(...)
  }

Connects an action to a signal.

  input  : STRING, signal_name,
           CODEREF, code reference to be executed,
           LIST, additional arguments
  output : HASH, keys are siagnal names, values are signal classes
