wxTreeCtrl(3erl) Erlang Module Definition wxTreeCtrl(3erl)

NAME

wxTreeCtrl - Functions for wxTreeCtrl class

DESCRIPTION

A tree control presents information as a hierarchy, with items that may be expanded to show further items. Items in a tree control are referenced by wxTreeItemId (not implemented in wx) handles, which may be tested for validity by calling wxTreeItemId::IsOk() (not implemented in wx).

A similar control with a fully native implementation for GTK+ and macOS as well is wxDataViewTreeCtrl (not implemented in wx).

To intercept events from a tree control, use the event table macros described in wxTreeEvent.

Styles

This class supports the following styles:

See also overview_windowstyles.

Win32 notes:

wxTreeCtrl class uses the standard common treeview control under Win32 implemented in the system library comctl32.dll. Some versions of this library are known to have bugs with handling the tree control colours: the usual symptom is that the expanded items leave black (or otherwise incorrectly coloured) background behind them, especially for the controls using non-default background colour. The recommended solution is to upgrade the comctl32.dll to a newer version: see http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=cb2cf3a2-8025-4e8f-8511-9b476a8d35d2

See: wxDataViewTreeCtrl (not implemented in wx), wxTreeEvent, wxTreeItemData (not implemented in wx), Overview treectrl, wxListBox, wxListCtrl, wxImageList

This class is derived (and can use functions) from: wxControl wxWindow wxEvtHandler

Types:

Parent = wxWindow:wxWindow()


new(Parent, Options :: [Option]) -> wxTreeCtrl()


Types:

Parent = wxWindow:wxWindow()
Option =
{id, integer()} |
{pos, {X :: integer(), Y :: integer()}} |
{size, {W :: integer(), H :: integer()}} |
{style, integer()} |

Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Text = unicode:chardata()
Option =
{image, integer()} |
{selectedImage, integer()} |
{data, term()}

Adds the root node to the tree, returning the new item.

The image and selImage parameters are an index within the normal image list specifying the image to use for unselected and selected items, respectively. If image > -1 and selImage is -1, the same image is used for both selected and unselected items.


appendItem(This, Parent, Text) -> integer()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Parent = integer()
Text = unicode:chardata()


appendItem(This, Parent, Text, Options :: [Option]) -> integer()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Parent = integer()
Text = unicode:chardata()
Option =
{image, integer()} |
{selectedImage, integer()} |
{data, term()}

Appends an item to the end of the branch identified by parent, return a new item id.

The image and selImage parameters are an index within the normal image list specifying the image to use for unselected and selected items, respectively. If image > -1 and selImage is -1, the same image is used for both selected and unselected items.


assignImageList(This, ImageList) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
ImageList = wxImageList:wxImageList()

Sets the normal image list.

The image list assigned with this method will be automatically deleted by wxTreeCtrl as appropriate (i.e. it takes ownership of the list).

See: setImageList/2


assignStateImageList(This, ImageList) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
ImageList = wxImageList:wxImageList()

Sets the state image list.

Image list assigned with this method will be automatically deleted by wxTreeCtrl as appropriate (i.e. it takes ownership of the list).

See: setStateImageList/2


collapse(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Collapses the given item.


collapseAndReset(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Collapses the given item and removes all children.


create(This, Parent) -> boolean()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Parent = wxWindow:wxWindow()

{id, integer()} |
{pos, {X :: integer(), Y :: integer()}} |
{size, {W :: integer(), H :: integer()}} |
{style, integer()} |
{validator, wx:wx_object()}

Creates the tree control.

See new/2 for further details.


delete(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Deletes the specified item.

A EVT_TREE_DELETE_ITEM event will be generated.

This function may cause a subsequent call to getNextChild/3 to fail.


deleteAllItems(This) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

Deletes all items in the control.

This function generates wxEVT_TREE_DELETE_ITEM events for each item being deleted, including the root one if it is shown, i.e. unless wxTR_HIDE_ROOT style is used.


deleteChildren(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Deletes all children of the given item (but not the item itself).

A wxEVT_TREE_DELETE_ITEM event will be generated for every item being deleted.

If you have called setItemHasChildren/3, you may need to call it again since deleteChildren/2 does not automatically clear the setting.


editLabel(This, Item) -> wxTextCtrl:wxTextCtrl()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Starts editing the label of the given item.

This function generates a EVT_TREE_BEGIN_LABEL_EDIT event which can be vetoed so that no text control will appear for in-place editing.

If the user changed the label (i.e. s/he does not press ESC or leave the text control without changes, a EVT_TREE_END_LABEL_EDIT event will be sent which can be vetoed as well.

See: EndEditLabel() (not implemented in wx), wxTreeEvent


ensureVisible(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Scrolls and/or expands items to ensure that the given item is visible.

This method can be used, and will work, even while the window is frozen (see wxWindow:freeze/1).


expand(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Expands the given item.


getBoundingRect(This, Item) -> Result


Types:

Result =
{Res :: boolean(),
Rect ::
{X :: integer(),
Y :: integer(),
W :: integer(),
H :: integer()}}
This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()


getBoundingRect(This, Item, Options :: [Option]) -> Result


Types:

Result =
{Res :: boolean(),
Rect ::
{X :: integer(),
Y :: integer(),
W :: integer(),
H :: integer()}}
This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()
Option = {textOnly, boolean()}

Retrieves the rectangle bounding the item.

If textOnly is true, only the rectangle around the item's label will be returned, otherwise the item's image is also taken into account.

The return value is true if the rectangle was successfully retrieved or false if it was not (in this case rect is not changed) - for example, if the item is currently invisible.

Notice that the rectangle coordinates are logical, not physical ones. So, for example, the x coordinate may be negative if the tree has a horizontal scrollbar and its position is not 0.


getChildrenCount(This, Item) -> integer()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()


getChildrenCount(This, Item, Options :: [Option]) -> integer()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

If recursively is true, returns the total number of descendants, otherwise only one level of children is counted.


getCount(This) -> integer()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

Returns the number of items in the control.


getEditControl(This) -> wxTextCtrl:wxTextCtrl()


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

Returns the edit control being currently used to edit a label.

Returns NULL if no label is being edited.

Note: This is currently only implemented for wxMSW.


getFirstChild(This, Item) -> Result


Types:

Result = {Res :: integer(), Cookie :: integer()}
This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Returns the first child; call getNextChild/3 for the next child.

For this enumeration function you must pass in a 'cookie' parameter which is opaque for the application but is necessary for the library to make these functions reentrant (i.e. allow more than one enumeration on one and the same object simultaneously). The cookie passed to getFirstChild/2 and getNextChild/3 should be the same variable.

Returns an invalid tree item (i.e. wxTreeItemId::IsOk() (not implemented in wx) returns false) if there are no further children.

See: getNextChild/3, getNextSibling/2


getNextChild(This, Item, Cookie) -> Result


Types:

Result = {Res :: integer(), Cookie :: integer()}
This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = Cookie = integer()

Returns the next child; call getFirstChild/2 for the first child.

For this enumeration function you must pass in a 'cookie' parameter which is opaque for the application but is necessary for the library to make these functions reentrant (i.e. allow more than one enumeration on one and the same object simultaneously). The cookie passed to getFirstChild/2 and getNextChild/3 should be the same.

Returns an invalid tree item if there are no further children.

See: getFirstChild/2

Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Returns the font of the item label.

If the font hadn't been explicitly set for the specified item with setItemFont/3, returns an invalid ?wxNullFont font. wxWindow:getFont/1 can be used to retrieve the global tree control font used for the items without any specific font.

scrollTo(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Scrolls the specified item into view.

Note that this method doesn't work while the window is frozen (See wxWindow:freeze/1), at least under MSW.

Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()
Data = term()

Sets the item client data.

setItemFont(This, Item, Font) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()
Font = wxFont:wxFont()

Sets the item's font.

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()


setItemHasChildren(This, Item, Options :: [Option]) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

Image list assigned with this method will not be deleted by wxTreeCtrl's destructor, you must delete it yourself.

See: assignStateImageList/2


setWindowStyle(This, Styles) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Styles = integer()

Sets the mode flags associated with the display of the tree control.

The new mode takes effect immediately.

Note: Generic only; MSW ignores changes.

See: wxTreeItemData (not implemented in wx), OnCompareItems() (not implemented in wx)


toggle(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Toggles the given item between collapsed and expanded states.


toggleItemSelection(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

For multiselection controls only.


unselect(This) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

Removes the selection from the currently selected item (if any).


unselectAll(This) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()

This function either behaves the same as unselect/1 if the control doesn't have wxTR_MULTIPLE style, or removes the selection from all items if it does have this style.


unselectItem(This, Item) -> ok


Types:

This = wxTreeCtrl()
Item = integer()

Unselects the given item.

This works in multiselection controls only.
