SYNOPSIS



  use Curses::Widgets::Label;

  $lbl = Curses::Widgets::Label->new({
    COLUMNS      => 10,
    LINES       => 1,
    VALUE       => Name:,
    FOREGROUND  => undef,
    BACKGROUND  => black,
    X           => 1,
    Y           => 1,
    ALIGNMENT   => R,
    });

  $tf->draw($mwh);

  See the Curses::Widgets pod for other methods.



REQUIREMENTS

Curses
Curses::Widgets

DESCRIPTION

Curses::Widgets::Label provides simplified OO access to Curses-based single or multi-line labels.

METHODS

    new (inherited from Curses::Widgets)



  $lbl = Curses::Widgets::Label->new({
    COLUMNS      => 10,
    LINES       => 1,
    VALUE       => Name:,
    FOREGROUND  => undef,
    BACKGROUND  => black,
    X           => 1,
    Y           => 1,
    ALIGNMENT   => R,
    });



The new method instantiates a new Label object. The only mandatory key/value pairs in the configuration hash are <B>XB> and <B>YB>. All others have the following defaults:



  Key         Default   Description
  ============================================================
  COLUMNS           10   Number of columns displayed
  LINES             1   Number of lines displayed
  VALUE               Label text
  FOREGROUND    undef   Default foreground colour
  BACKGROUND    undef   Default background colour
  ALIGNMENT         L   Right, Left, or Centered



If the label is a multi-line label it will filter the current VALUE through the Curses::Widgets::textwrap function to break it along whitespace and newlines.

    draw



  $tf->draw($mwh);



The draw method renders the text field in its current state. This requires a valid handle to a curses window in which it will render itself.
