DESCRIPTION

The Cdk selection widget creates a selection list. The following functions create or manipulate the Cdk selection list widget.

AVAILABLE FUNCTIONS

activateCDKSelection
  activates the selection widget and lets the user interact with the widget. The parameter selection is a pointer to a non-NULL selection 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 1. Itm will also set the widget data exitType to vNORMAL. If the character entered into this widget was ESCAPE then the widget will return a value of -1 and the widget data exitType will be set to vESCAPE_HIT.
destroyCDKSelection
  removes the widget from the screen and frees memory the object used.
drawCDKSelection
  draws the selection widget on the screen. If the box parameter is true, the widget is drawn with a box.
eraseCDKSelection
  removes the widget from the screen. This does NOT destroy the widget.
getCDKSelectionBox
  returns true if the widget will be drawn with a box around it.
getCDKSelectionChoice
  returns the selection choice at the given index.
getCDKSelectionChoices
  returns an array of the current selection choices for the widget.
getCDKSelectionCurrent
  returns the current selection index.
getCDKSelectionHighlight
  returns the attribute of the highlight bar.
getCDKSelectionItems
  copies the selection-list items into the caller’s array and returns the number of items in the list.
getCDKSelectionMode
  returns the selection mode at the given index.
getCDKSelectionModes
  returns an array of the current modes for the widget.
getCDKSelectionTitle
  returns the first line of the title of the selection widget. The caller must free the returned value.
injectCDKSelection
  injects a single character into the widget. The parameter selection is a pointer to a non-NULL selection 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 1. The widget data exitType is set to vNORMAL.
ESCAPE the function returns -1. vESCAPE_HIT. 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.
moveCDKSelection
  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.
newCDKSelection
  creates a selection widget and returns a pointer to it. 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.
spos is where the scroll bar is to be placed. It may be one of three values:
LEFT puts the scroll bar on the left of the scrolling list. RIGHT puts the scroll bar on the right side of the list, and
NONE does not add a scroll bar.
height and
width
  control the height and width of the widget. If you provide a value of zero for either of the height or the width, the widget will be created with the full width and height of the screen. If you provide a negative value, the widget will be created the full height or width minus the value provided.
title is the string which to display at the top of the widget. The title can be more than one line; just provide a carriage return character at the line break.
selectionList
  is the list of items to display in the selection list
selectionListLength
  is the number of elements in the given list.
choiceList
  is the list of choices that will be selected when the user presses the space bar.
choiceListLength
  is the length of this list.
highlight
  specifies the display attribute of the currently selected item.
box is true if the 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.
positionCDKSelection
  allows the user to move the widget around the screen via the cursor/keypad keys. See cdk_position (3) for key bindings.
setCDKSelection
  lets the programmer modify certain elements of an existing selection widget. The parameter names correspond to the same parameter names listed in the newCDKSelection function.
setCDKSelectionBackgroundAttrib
  sets the background attribute of the widget. The parameter attribute is a curses attribute, e.g., A_BOLD.
setCDKSelectionBackgroundColor
  sets the background color of the widget. The parameter color is in the format of the Cdk format strings. See cdk_display (3).
setCDKSelectionBox
  sets whether the widget will be drawn with a box around it.
setCDKSelectionBoxAttribute
  sets the attribute of the box.
setCDKSelectionChoice
  sets the selection choice value at the given index.
setCDKSelectionChoices
  sets the selection choice values of the widget.
setCDKSelectionCurrent
  sets the current selection index.
setCDKSelectionHighlight
  sets the attribute of the highlight bar.
setCDKSelectionHorizontalChar
  sets the horizontal drawing character for the box to the given character.
setCDKSelectionItems
  sets the selection list items.
setCDKSelectionLLChar
  sets the lower left hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKSelectionLRChar
  sets the lower right hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKSelectionMode
  sets the selection mode at the given index.
setCDKSelectionModes
  sets the selection mode of the elements of the widget. There are two acceptable values for the modes: 0 which allows the user to change the selection value at the given index; and 1 which sets the element to a read-only state.
setCDKSelectionPostProcess
  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).
setCDKSelectionPreProcess
  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 is a pointer to void. To learn more about pre-processing see cdk_process (3).
setCDKSelectionTitle
  set the selection list’s title.
setCDKSelectionULChar
  sets the upper left hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKSelectionURChar
  sets the upper right hand corner of the widget’s box to the given character.
setCDKSelectionVerticalChar
  sets the vertical drawing character for the box to the given character.
