Implemented Interfaces

GogTheme implements GOPersist.

Description

The library provides two hard coded themes, "Default", and "Guppi". Other themes are described in files, some of which might be distributed with the library.

A file defining a theme is an xml file with a <GogTheme> root node. The root element needs to have an Id which should be unique. The uuid command provides such Ids.

The contents must be: _name|name+, _description?|description*, GOStyle+.

_name and name nodes:

The _name node should be used for themes distributed with goffice, localized names will be in *.po files and only the default name for "C" locale needs to be there. Other files need at least one name node for the default name, and might have some translated names with an appropriate "xml:lang" attribute.

_description and description nodes:

These work just like name nodes. The difference is that no description node is mandatory. A theme can work perfectly without a description.

GOStyle nodes:

These nodes actually define the theme. Attributes and contents are: node attributes: class, role. node contents: (line|outline)?, fill?, marker?, font?, text_layout?

The attributes define the target for the style. You might have a class and a role attribute, or just one of them. If the role attribute is given, the class attribute, if given, represents the class of the parent object. A GOStyle node with no class or role will be used as default when another style is missing. If several such nodes exist, the last one will be used. If no default style exists, the "Default" theme is applied for missing nodes. The list of GOStyle nodes might be:

class role contents comments
GogGraph outline, fill
GogGraph Title outline, fill, font, text_layout The graph title
GogChart outline, fill
GogChart Title outline, fill, font, text_layout The chart title
GogLegend outline, fill, font
GogAxis line, font, text_layout
GogAxisLine line, font
GogGrid outline, fill GogGrid is actually the back plane
MajorGrid line, fill
MinorGrid line, fill
GogLabel outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogSeries line, fill, marker One is needed for each entry in the palette
GogTrendLine line
GogRegEqn outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogSeriesLabels outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogRegEqn outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogSeriesLabel outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogDataLabel outline, fill, font, text_layout
GogEquation outline, fill, font, text_layout

The line and outline nodes are actually the same so using line in place of outline is not an issue. A color is specified either using the format RR:GG::BB:AA or a string as defined in rgb.txt, so black can be specified as "black" or "00:00:00:FF".

"line" or "outline" node:
