NAME

Prima::Label - static text widget  

DESCRIPTION

The class is designed for display of text, and assumes no user interaction. The text output capabilities include wrapping, horizontal and vertical alignment, and automatic widget resizing to match text extension. If text contains a tilde-escaped ( hot ) character, the label can explicitly focus the specified widget upon press of the character key, what feature is useful for dialog design.  

SYNOPSIS

        my $label = Prima::Label-> create(
                text      => 'Enter ~name:',
                focusLink => $name_inputline,
                alignment => ta::Center,
        );

 

API

 

Properties

alignment INTEGER
One of the following "ta::XXX" constants:

        ta::Left
        ta::Center 
        ta::Right

Selects the horizontal text alignment.

Default value: "ta::Left"

autoHeight BOOLEAN
If 1, the widget height is automatically changed as text extensions change.

Default value: 0

autoWidth BOOLEAN
If 1, the widget width is automatically changed as text extensions change.

Default value: 1

focusLink WIDGET
Points to a widget, which is explicitly focused when the user presses the combination of a hot key with the "Alt" key.

Prima::Label does not provide a separate property to access the hot key value, however it can be read from the "{accel}" variable.

Default value: "undef".

showAccelChar BOOLEAN
If 0, the tilde ( ~ ) character is collapsed from the text, and the hot character is underlined. When the user presses combination of the escaped character with the "Alt" key, the "focusLink" widget is explicitly focused.

If 1, the text is showed as is, and no hot character is underlined. Key combinations with "Alt" key are not recognized.

Default value: 0

showPartial BOOLEAN
Used to determine if the last line of text should be drawn if it can not be vertically fit in the widget interior. If 1, the last line is shown even if not visible in full. If 0, only full lines are drawn.

Default value: 1

wordWrap BOOLEAN
If 1, the text is wrapped if it can not be horizontally fit in the widget interior.

If 0, the text is not wrapped unless new line characters are present in the text.

New line characters signal line wrapping with no respect to "wordWrap" property value.

Default value: 0

valignment INTEGER
One of the following "ta::XXX" constants:

        ta::Top
        ta::Middle or ta::Center
        ta::Bottom

Selects the vertical text alignment.

NB: "ta::Middle" value is not equal to "ta::Center"'s, however the both constants produce equal effect here.

Default value: "ta::Top"
