DESCRIPTION

The Cdk itemlist widget creates a widget which allows a user to select from a list of preset character strings such as the days of the week or the months of the year. The following functions create or manipulate the Cdk itemlist widget.

AVAILABLE FUNCTIONS

activateCDKItemlist
  activates the itemlist widget and lets the user interact with the widget. The parameter itemlist is a pointer to a non-NULL itemlist widget. If the actions parameter is passed with a non-NULL value, the characters in the array will be injected into the widget. To activate the widget interactively pass in a NULL pointer for actions. If the character entered into this widget is RETURN or TAB then this function will return a value from 0 to the number of buttons -1, representing the button selected. It will also set the widget data exitType to vNORMAL. If the character entered into this widget was ESCAPE then the widget will return a -1 and the widget data exitType will be set to vESCAPE_HIT.
destroyCDKItemlist
  removes the widget from the screen and frees memory the object used.
drawCDKItemlist
  draws the itemlist widget on the screen. The box option is true if the widget is drawn with a box.
drawCDKItemlistField
  draws the contents of the field.
eraseCDKItemlist
  removes the widget from the screen. This does NOT destroy the widget.
getCDKItemlistBox
  returns true if the widget will be drawn with a box around it.
getCDKItemlistCurrentItem
  returns the index of the currently displayed item in the widget.
getCDKItemlistDefaultItem
  returns the index of the default item in the widget.
getCDKItemlistValues
  returns the list of pointers to the items. The parameter size points to a location which receives the item count.
injectCDKItemlist
  injects a single character into the widget. The parameter itemlist is a pointer to a non-NULL itemlist widget. The parameter character is the character to inject into the widget. The return value and side-effect (setting the widget data exitType) depend upon the injected character:
RETURN or TAB
  the function returns a value ranging from zero to one less than the number of buttons, representing the button selected. The widget data exitType is set to vNORMAL.
ESCAPE the function returns -1. The widget data exitType is set to vESCAPE_HIT.
Otherwise
  unless modified by preprocessing, postprocessing or key bindings, the function returns -1. The widget data exitType is set to vEARLY_EXIT.
moveCDKItemlist
  moves the given widget to the given position. The parameters xpos and ypos are the new position of the widget. The parameter xpos may be an integer or one of the pre-defined values TOP, BOTTOM, and CENTER. The parameter ypos may be an integer or one of the pre-defined values LEFT, RIGHT, and CENTER. The parameter relative states whether the xpos/ypos pair is a relative move or an absolute move. For example, if xpos = 1 and ypos = 2 and relative = TRUE, then the widget would move one row down and two columns right. If the value of relative was FALSE then the widget would move to the position (1,2). Do not use the values TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT, RIGHT, or CENTER when relative = TRUE. (weird things may happen). The final parameter refresh is a boolean value which states whether the widget will get refreshed after the move.
newCDKItemlist
  creates a pointer to an itemlist widget. Parameters:
screen
  is the screen you wish this widget to be placed in.
xpos controls the placement of the object along the horizontal axis. It may be an integer or one of the pre-defined values LEFT, RIGHT, and CENTER.
ypos controls the placement of the object along the vertical axis. It may be an integer or one of the pre-defined values TOP, BOTTOM, and CENTER.
title is the string which will be displayed at the top of the widget. The title can be more than one line; just provide a carriage return character at the line break.
label is the string to use as the label of the itemlist field.
itemList
  is the list of the strings which will be displayed in the widget.
itemCount
  is the number of elements in the list.
defaultItem
  is the index of the default item for the list.
box is true if widget should be drawn with a box around it.
shadow
  turns the shadow on or off around this widget.
If the widget could not be created then a NULL pointer is returned.
positionCDKItemlist
  allows the user to move the widget around the screen via the cursor/keypad keys. See cdk_position (3) for key bindings.
setCDKItemlist
  lets the programmer modify certain elements of an existing itemlist widget. The parameter names correspond to the same parameter names listed in the newCDKItemlist function.
setCDKItemlistBackgroundAttrib
  the background color attribute the widget. The parameter attribute is a curses attribute, e.g., A_BOLD.
setCDKItemlistBackgroundColor
  sets the background color of the widget. The parameter color is in the format of the Cdk format strings. See cdk_display (3).
setCDKItemlistBox
  sets whether the widget will be drawn with a box around it.
setCDKItemlistBoxAttribute
  sets the attribute of the box.
setCDKItemlistCurrentItem
  sets the currently displayed item in the widget.
setCDKItemlistDefaultItem
  sets the default item in the widget.
setCDKItemlistHorizontalChar
  sets the horizontal drawing character for the box to the given character.
setCDKItemlistLLChar
  sets the lower left hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKItemlistLRChar
  sets the lower right hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKItemlistPostProcess
  allows the user to have the widget call a function after the key has been applied to the widget. The parameter function is the callback function. The parameter data points to data passed to the callback function. To learn more about post-processing see cdk_process (3).
setCDKItemlistPreProcess
  allows the user to have the widget call a function after a key is hit and before the key is applied to the widget. The parameter function is the callback function. The parameter data points to data passed to the callback function. To learn more about pre-processing see cdk_process (3).
setCDKItemlistULChar
  sets the upper left hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKItemlistURChar
  sets the upper right hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKItemlistValues
  sets the contents of the list from an array of string pointers item whose final index is given by count. If defaultItem is in the range 0..count, that sets the default item value for the list.
setCDKItemlistVerticalChar
  sets the vertical drawing character for the box to the given character.
