NAME

XmSpinBox --- The SpinBox widget class  

SYNOPSIS

#include <Xm/SpinB.h>
 

DESCRIPTION

SpinBox allows the user to select a value from a ring of related but mutually exclusive choices which are displayed in sequence. The SpinBox always has an increment arrow, a decrement arrow, and one or more other children. The choices are displayed, one at a time, in a traversable text child ( XmText or XmTextField. The user clicks <Btn1> on an arrow to display the next (or previous) item in the ring of choices. By pressing and holding <Btn1> on an arrow, the user continuously cycles through the choices.

The traversable children in a SpinBox can be of type XmNUMERIC or XmSTRING, as defined by the XmNspinBoxChildType constraint resource. The ring of choices for numeric children is defined by minimum, maximum, incremental, and decimal point values. The ring of choices for string children is defined in an array of compound strings.

The application programmer can include multiple traversable children in the SpinBox. For example, a SpinBox might consist of a pair of arrows and month, day, and year text fields. The arrows only spin the child that currently has focus.

Arrow size is specified by the SpinBox resource XmNarrowSize. This value sets both width and height of each arrow in pixels.

The programmer can display SpinBox arrows in one of several layouts, as specified by the XmNarrowLayout resource:

XmARROWS_BEGINNING
Places a pair of left and right arrows before the children.
XmARROWS_END
Places a pair of left and right arrows after the children.
XmARROWS_SPLIT
Places one arrow on each side of the children.
XmARROWS_FLAT_BEGINNING
Places a pair of arrows side by side before the XmSpinBox children.
XmARROWS_FLAT_BEGINNING
Places a pair of arrows side by side after the XmSpinBox children.

Positions for XmARROWS_BEGINNING and XmARROWS_END are dependent on the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection. When layout direction is left-to-right, beginning arrows are positioned to the left of the children. When layout direction is right-to-left, beginning arrows are positioned to the right.

The actions of the arrows are determined by the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection. For left-to-right layouts, the right arrow is the increment arrow and the left arrow is the decrement arrow. For right-to-left layouts, the right arrow is the decrement arrow and the left arrow is the increment arrow.

For a numeric type child, the increment arrow increases the displayed value by the incremental value up to the maximum. The decrement arrow decreases the displayed value by the given incremental value down to the minimum.

The increment arrow for a string type child moves toward the last entry of the array of compound strings (by increasing the SpinBox constraint resource XmNposition). The decrement arrow moves toward the first entry of the compound string array.

The programmer can also control the sensitivity of each arrow in the SpinBox. Sensitive arrows spin choices; insensitive arrows do not spin choices. Arrow sensitivity is set for the SpinBox widget by using the XmNdefaultArrowSensitivity resource, but it can be modified on a per child basis by using the XmNarrowSensitivity constraint resource.

SpinBox provides two callbacks to application programmers. (In addition, the callbacks of the SpinBox's children may be invoked.) Each of these callbacks receives a pointer to XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct. The XmNmodifyVerifyCallback procedures are called before a new choice is displayed. The XmNvalueChangedCallback procedures are called after a new choice is displayed.

XmNmodifyVerifyCallback tells the application what the new position will be in the ring of choices. This callback can be used to make the SpinBox stop at the upper and lower limits or go to a different, nonconsecutive choice. The application allows the change in position by leaving the doit member set to True. The application can spin to a position other than the next consecutive position by leaving doit set to True and by changing the position member to the desired position. When doit is set to False by an application, there is no change in the choice displayed.

After a new choice is displayed, the XmNvalueChangedCallback procedure is called. The application can use this procedure to perform tasks when specific values are reached or when boundaries are crossed. For example, if the user spins from January back to December, the application could change to the previous year. If the user spins from December to January, the application could change to the next year.

SpinBox dimensions can be set using the Core resources XmNheight and XmNwidth. If dimensions are not specified, the SpinBox size is determined by the sizes of its arrows and children. The SpinBox will attempt to grow so that the arrows and all children are visible.

SpinBox uses the XmQTaccessTextual trait and holds the XmQTnavigator trait.  

Classes

SpinBox inherits behavior, resources, and traits from the Core, Composite, Constraint, and XmManager classes.

The class pointer is xmSpinBoxWidgetClass.

The class name is XmSpinBox.  

New Resources

The following table defines a set of widget resources used by the programmer to specify data. The programmer can also set the resource values for the inherited classes to set attributes for this widget. To reference a resource by name or by class in a .Xdefaults file, remove the XmN or XmC prefix and use the remaining letters. To specify one of the defined values for a resource in a .Xdefaults file, remove the Xm prefix and use the remaining letters (in either lowercase or uppercase, but include any underscores between words). The codes in the access column indicate whether the given resource can be set at creation time (C), set by using XtSetValues (S), retrieved by using XtGetValues (G), or is not applicable (N/A).

XmNarrowLayout
Specifies placement of the two arrows in the widget. Possible layouts are as follows:
XmARROWS_BEGINNING
Places left and right arrows beside each other, before the child(ren). Positioning for this layout is dependent on the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection.
XmARROWS_END
Places left and right arrows beside each other, after the child(ren). Positioning for this layout is dependent on the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection.
XmARROWS_FLAT_BEGINNING
Places a pair of arrows side by side before the XmSpinBox children. Positioning for this layout is dependent on the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection.
XmARROWS_FLAT_END
Places a pair of arrows side by side after the XmSpinBox children. Positioning for this layout is dependent on the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection.
XmARROWS_SPLIT
Places a left arrow on the left side and a right arrow on the right side of the child(ren).
XmNarrowSize
Specifies both the width and height of the arrow in pixels.
XmNdefaultArrowSensitivity
Specifies the default sensitivity of the arrows in the widget. Insensitive arrows change color, cannot be depressed, and perform no action. (This resource may be overridden by the constraint resource XmNarrowSensitivity for individual traversable text children of the SpinBox.) Possible default sensitivity values are as follows:
XmARROWS_SENSITIVE
Both arrows are sensitive.
XmARROWS_DECREMENT_SENSITIVE
Only the decrement arrow (as determined by XmNlayoutDirection) is sensitive. The increment arrow is insensitive.
XmARROWS_INCREMENT_SENSITIVE
Only the increment arrow (as determined by XmNlayoutDirection) is sensitive. The decrement arrow is insensitive.
XmARROWS_INSENSITIVE
Both arrows are insensitive.
XmNdetailShadowThickness
Specifies the thickness of the inside arrow shadows. The default thickness is 2 pixels.
XmNinitialDelay
Specifies how long, in milliseconds, the mouse button must be held down before automatic spinning begins. In other words, when the user selects the increment or decrement arrow and keeps it depressed, this delay occurs before the choices start spinning. If XmNinitialDelay is 0, then XmNrepeatDelay is used as the initial delay.
XmNmarginHeight
Specifies the amount of blank space between the top edge of the SpinBox widget and the first item in each column, and the bottom edge of the SpinBox widget and the last item in each column.
XmNmarginWidth
Specifies the amount of blank space between the left edge of the SpinBox widget and the first item in each row, and the right edge of the SpinBox widget and the last item in each row.
XmNmodifyVerifyCallback
This callback is called before the SpinBox position changes (see the Constraint resource XmNposition). The application can use this callback to set the next position, change SpinBox resources, or cancel the impending action. For example, this callback can be used to stop the spinning just before wrapping at the upper and lower position boundaries. If the doit member is set to False, nothing happens. Otherwise the position changes. Reasons sent by the callback are XmCR_SPIN_NEXT, XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR, XmCR_SPIN_FIRST, or XmCR_SPIN_LAST.
XmNrepeatDelay
When the user selects and keeps an arrow button depressed by pressing and holding <Btn1>, spinning begins. After the time specified in XmNinitialDelay elapses, the SpinBox position changes automatically until the arrow button is released. The XmNrepeatDelay resource specifies the delay in milliseconds between each automatic change. If XmNrepeatDelay is set to 0 (zero), automatic spinning is turned off and XmNinitialDelay is ignored.
XmNspacing
Specifies the horizontal and vertical spacing between items contained within the SpinBox widget.
XmNvalueChangedCallback
This is called n+1 times for n SpinBox position changes (see the Constraint resource XmNposition). Reasons sent by the callback are XmCR_OK, XmCR_SPIN_NEXT, XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR, XmCR_SPIN_FIRST, or XmCR_SPIN_LAST. Other members are detailed in the callback structure description.

XmNarrowSensitivity
Specifies the sensitivity of the arrows for a SpinBox child. By using this resource in the definition of a SpinBox child, the application programmer can override the default SpinBox sensitivity (set by XmNdefaultArrowSensitivity) for a particular child. This allows each traversable child to have a different arrow sensitivity. The arrow sensitivity values are as follows:
XmARROWS_SENSITIVE
Both arrows are sensitive.
XmARROWS_DECREMENT_SENSITIVE
Only the decrement arrow (as determined by XmNlayoutDirection) is sensitive.
XmARROWS_INCREMENT_SENSITIVE
Only the increment arrow (as determined by XmNlayoutDirection) is sensitive.
XmARROWS_INSENSITIVE
Both arrows are insensitive.
XmARROWS_DEFAULT_SENSITIVITY
Use the sensitivity specified in the XmNdefaultArrowSensitivity resource.
XmNdecimalPoints
Specifies the number of decimal places used when displaying the value of a SpinBox numeric type child. If the number of decimal places specified is greater than the number of digits in a displayed value, the value is padded with 0 (zeros). For example, when XmNinitialValue is 1 and XmNmaximumValue is 1000 and XmNdecimalPoints is 3, the range of values displayed in the SpinBox is 0.001 to 1.000. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmNUMERIC.
XmNincrementValue
Specifies the amount by which to increment or decrement a SpinBox numeric type child. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmNUMERIC.
XmNmaximumValue
Specifies the highest possible value for a numeric SpinBox. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmNUMERIC.
XmNminimumValue
Specifies the lowest possible value for a numeric SpinBox. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmNUMERIC.
XmNnumValues
Specifies the number of strings in XmNvalues. The application must change this value when strings are added or removed from XmNvalues. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmSTRING.
XmNposition
Specifies the position of the currently displayed item. The interpritation of XmNposition is dependent upon the value of the XmNpositionType resource.
When XmNpositionType is XmPOSITION_INDEX the XmNposition value is interpreted as follows: For XmSpinBox children of type XmNUMERIC, the XmNposition resource is interpreted as an index into an array of items. The minimum allowable value for XmNposition is 0. The maximum allowable value for XmNposition is (XmNmaximumValue-XmNminimumValue)/XmNincrementValue. The value display by the XmSpinBox child is XmNminimumValue+(XmNposition*XmNincrementValue). For XmSpinBox children of type XmSTRING, the XmNposition resource is interpreted as an index into an array of XmNnumValues items. The minimum allowable value for XmNposition is 0. The maximum allowable value for XmNposition is XmNnumValues - 1. The value displayed by the XmSpinBox is the XmNposition'th value in the XmNvalues array.
When XmNpositionType is XmPOSITION_VALUE the XmNposition value is interpreted as follows:
For XmSpinBox children of type XmNUMERIC, the XmNposition resource is interpreted as the actual value to be displayed. The minimum allowable value for XmNposition is XmNminimumValue. The maximum allowable value for XmNposition is XmNmaximumValue. The value displayed by the XmSpinBox child is XmNposition. For XmSpinBox children of type XmSTRING, the interpretation is the same for XmPOSITION_VALUE as for XmPOSITION_INDEX.
Position values falling outside the specified range are invalid. When an application assigns a value to XmNposition which is less than the minimum, XmNposition is set to the minimum and an error message is displayed. When an application assigns a value to XmNposition which is greater than the maximum, XmNposition is set to the maximum and an error message is displayed.
XmNpositionType
Specifies how values the XmNposition resource are to be interpreted. Valid values include XmPOSITION_INDEX and XmPOSITION_VALUE.
XmNspinBoxChildType
Specifies the type of data displayed in the child:
XmNUMERIC
The SpinBox choice range is defined by numeric minimum, maximum, and incremental values.
XmSTRING
The SpinBox choices are alphanumeric.
XmNvalues
Specifies the array of XmStrings to be displayed in a SpinBox string type child. The application must change XmNnumValues when strings are added to or removed from XmNvalues. This is used only when XmNspinBoxChildType is XmSTRING.

Callback

A pointer to the following structure is passed to each callback:

typedef struct
{
        int reason;
        XEvent * event;
        Widget widget;
        Boolean doit;
        int position;
        XmString value;
        Boolean crossed_boundary;
} XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct;
reason
Indicates why the callback was invoked. Reasons may be the following:
XmCR_OK
Spinning has stopped because the SpinBox arrow has been disarmed. XmCR_OK is either the last or only call.
XmCR_SPIN_NEXT
The increment arrow has been armed and position is increasing. Further callbacks will come. For a numeric type child, the values displayed are approaching the maximum. For a string SpinBox, the values displayed are approaching the last entry in the array of XmString s.
XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR
The decrement arrow has been armed and position is decreasing. Further callbacks will come. For a numeric type child, the values displayed are approaching the minimum. For a string type child, the values displayed are approaching the first entry in the array of XmStrings.
XmCR_SPIN_FIRST
The begin data (<osfBeginData>) key sequence has been pressed. The SpinBox is at its first position, displaying the lowest value or the first entry in the array of XmStrings.
XmCR_SPIN_LAST
The end data (<osfEndData>) key sequence has been pressed. The SpinBox is at its last position, displaying the highest value or the last entry in the array of XmStrings.
event
Points to the XEvent that triggered this callback.
widget
Specifies the child widget affected by this callback.
doit
When the callback is XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, doit indicates whether or not an action will be performed before the SpinBox position changes. If the callback leaves doit set to True (the default), the spinning action is performed. If the callback sets doit to False, the spinning action is not performed. When the callback is XmNvalueChangedCallback, doit is ignored.
position
Specifies the next value of the SpinBox position (same as XmNposition). This is an output field for the XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, which may change the next position as dictated by the needs of an application.
value
Specifies the new XmString value in the text child widget. The user program must copy this string if it is to be used outside the callback routine.
crossed_boundary
Specifies whether or not the SpinBox has crossed the upper or lower boundary (the last or first compound string, or the maximum or minimum value). The crossed_boundary value is True if the SpinBox has just crossed a boundary, and False if it has not.

Action Routines

The XmSpinBox action routines are as follows:

SpinBArm():
Visually arms the SpinBox by drawing the armed arrow so that it appears to be depressed. This action is initiated when the user presses <Btn1> while the pointer is within the boundaries of either the increment or decrement arrow. The arrow remains visually armed as long as <Btn1> remains depressed.
If the time period specified by XmNrepeatDelay is not greater than zero milliseconds, nothing else happens while <Btn1> remains depressed.
If the time period specified by XmNrepeatDelay is greater than zero milliseconds, and the arrow is disarmed before the time period specified by XmNinitialDelay has elapsed, nothing else happens in this action.
If the time period specified by XmNrepeatDelay is greater than zero milliseconds, and the arrow is still armed after the time period specified by XmNinitialDelay has elapsed, the following occurs:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure, XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct, is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT if the increment arrow is armed, or to XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR if the decrement arrow is armed.
The position member is set to the next position.
The doit member is set to True.
XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, if it exists, is invoked. The application may change the value of position and doit. If the application sets doit to False, nothing else happens until the XmNrepeatDelay period has elapsed, or until <Btn1> is released.
If doit remains set to True, the following occurs:
The value of XmNposition is changed to the value of position in the SpinBox callback structure.
The text corresponding to the new position is displayed in the traversable text child that currently has focus.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT if the increment arrow is armed, or XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR if the decrement arrow is armed.
The position member is set to the current (new) value of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called. SpinBox ignores any changes to position or doit members made by XmNvalueChangedCallback.
These events are repeated each time the XmNrepeatDelay period elapses and the arrow remains armed.
SpinBDisarm():
Visually disarms the SpinBox by drawing the previously armed arrow so that it no longer appears to be depressed.
If the time period specified by XmNrepeatDelay is not greater than zero milliseconds, or the time period specified by XmNinitialDelay has not elapsed, the following then occurs:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure, XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct, is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT if the increment arrow is armed, or to XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR if the decrement arrow is armed.
The position member is set to the next position.
The doit member is set to True.
The XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, if there is one, is invoked. The application may change the value of position and doit. If the application sets doit to False, nothing else happens until the XmNrepeatDelay period has elapsed, or until <Btn1> is released.
If doit remains set to True, the following occurs:
The value of XmNposition is changed to the value of position in the SpinBox callback structure.
The text corresponding to the new position is displayed in the traversable text child that currently has focus.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT if the increment arrow is armed, or XmCR_SPIN_PRIOR if the decrement arrow is armed.
The position member is set to the current (new) value of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called. SpinBox ignores any changes to position or doit members made by an XmNvalueChangedCallback.
If an XmNvalueChangedCallback procedure is issued after the button has been armed, regardless of the value of XmNrepeatDelay or whether the XmNinitialDelay has expired:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_OK.
The position member is set to the current value of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called.
SpinBFirst():
The following occurs:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure, XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct, is set to XmCR_SPIN_FIRST.
The position member is set to the first (0) position.
The doit member is set to True.
XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, if it exists, is invoked. The application may change the value of position and doit. If the application sets doit to False, nothing else happens until the XmNrepeatDelay period has elapsed, or until <Btn1> is released.
If doit remains set to True, the following occurs:
The value of XmNposition is changed to the value of position in the SpinBox callback structure.
The text corresponding to the new position is displayed in the traversable text child that currently has focus.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_SPIN_FIRST.
The position member is set to the current (new) value of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_OK.
The position member is set to the current (new) XmNposition value.
The XmNvalueChangedCallback is called again. SpinBox ignores any changes to position or doit members made by XmNvalueChangedCallback.
SpinBLast():
The following occurs:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure, XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct, is set to XmCR_SPIN_LAST.
The position member is set to the last position.
The doit member is set to True.
XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, if it exists, is invoked. The application may change the value of position and doit. If the application sets doit to False, nothing else happens until the XmNrepeatDelay period has elapsed, or until <Btn1> is released.
If doit remains set to True, the following occurs:
The value of XmNposition is changed to the value of position in the SpinBox callback structure.
The text corresponding to the new position is displayed in the traversable text child that currently has focus.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_SPIN_LAST.
The position member is set to the current (new) value XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_OK.
The position member is set to the current (new) of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback is called again. SpinBox ignores any changes to the position or doit members made by XmNvalueChangedCallback.
SpinBLeft():
If the VendorShell resource XmNlayoutDirection is left-to-right, the SpinBPrior action is invoked. Otherwise, the SpinBNext action is invoked.
SpinBNext():
Visually arms the SpinBox by drawing the increment arrow so that it appears to be depressed. The following occurs:
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure, XmSpinBoxCallbackStruct, is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT.
The position member is set to the next position.
The doit member is set to True.
XmNmodifyVerifyCallback, if it exists, is invoked. The application may change the value of position and doit. If the application sets doit to False, nothing else happens until the XmNrepeatDelay period has elapsed, or until <Btn1> is released.
If doit remains set to True, the following occurs:
The value of XmNposition is changed to the value of position in the SpinBox callback structure.
The text corresponding to the new position is displayed in the traversable text child that currently has focus.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_SPIN_NEXT.
The position member is set to the current (new) value of XmNposition.
XmNvalueChangedCallback, if it exists, is called.
The reason member of the SpinBox callback structure is set to XmCR_OK.
The position member is set to the current (new) XmNposition.
The XmNvalueChangedCallback is called again. SpinBox ignores any changes to position or doit members made by XmNvalueChangedCallback.
