Description

GooCanvasItem defines the interface that canvas items must implement, and contains methods for operating on canvas items.

Details

GooCanvasItem

typedef struct _GooCanvasItem GooCanvasItem;

GooCanvasItem is a typedef used for objects that implement the GooCanvasItem interface.

(There is no actual GooCanvasItem struct, since it is only an interface. But using 'GooCanvasItem' is more helpful than using 'GObject'.)

GooCanvasItemIFace holds the virtual methods that make up the GooCanvasItem interface.

Simple canvas items only need to implement the get_parent(), set_parent(), get_bounds(), get_items_at(), update() and paint() methods (and also get_requested_area() and allocate_area() if they are going to be used inside a layout container like GooCanvasTable).

Items that support transforms should also implement get_transform() and set_transform(). Items that support styles should implement get_style() and set_style().

Container items must implement get_canvas(), set_canvas(), get_n_children(), get_child() and request_update(). Containers that support dynamic changes to their children should implement add_child(), move_child() and remove_child(). Layout containers like GooCanvasTable may implement get_child_property(), set_child_property() and get_transform_for_child().

get_canvas ()

returns the canvas the item is in.

set_canvas ()

sets the canvas the item is in.

get_n_children ()

returns the number of children of the item.

get_child ()

returns the child at the given index.

request_update ()

requests that an update is scheduled.

add_child ()

adds a child.

move_child ()

moves a child up or down the stacking order.

remove_child ()

removes a child.

get_child_property ()

gets a child property of a given child item, e.g. the "row" or "column" property of an item in a GooCanvasTable.

set_child_property ()

sets a child property for a given child item.

get_transform_for_child ()

get_requested_area ()

returns the requested area of the item, in its parent's coordinate space. This is only used for items in layout containers such as GooCanvasTable.

allocate_area ()

get_transform ()

gets the item's transformation matrix.

set_transform ()

sets the item's transformation matrix.

get_style ()

returns the requested height of the item, given a particular allocated width, using the parent's coordinate space.

get_model ()

gets the model that the canvas item is viewing.

set_model ()

sets the model that the canvas item will view.

enter_notify_event ()

signal emitted when the mouse enters the item.

goo_canvas_item_is_visible ()

gboolean            goo_canvas_item_is_visible          (GooCanvasItem *item);

Checks if the item is visible.

This entails checking the item's own visibility setting, as well as those of its ancestors.

Note that the item may be scrolled off the screen and so may not be actually visible to the user.

item :

a GooCanvasItem.

Returns :

TRUE if the item is visible.

goo_canvas_item_get_is_static ()

gboolean            goo_canvas_item_get_is_static       (GooCanvasItem *item);

Returns TRUE if the item is static. Static items do not move or change size when the canvas is scrolled or the scale changes.

item :

an item.

Returns :

Notifies the item that it is static. Static items do not move or change size when the canvas is scrolled or the scale changes.

Container items such as GooCanvasGroup should call this function when children are added, to notify children whether they are static or not. Containers should also pass on any changes in their own status to children.

item :

an item.

is_static :

if the item is static.

goo_canvas_item_animate ()

void                goo_canvas_item_animate             (GooCanvasItem *item,
