FLroller

FLroller — A FLTK widget that creates a transversal knob.

Description

FLroller is a sort of knob, but put transversally.

Syntax

kout, ihandle FLroller "label", imin, imax, istep, iexp, itype, idisp, \
      iwidth, iheight, ix, iy

Initialization

ihandle -- a handle value (an integer number) that unequivocally references a corresponding widget. This is used by other opcodes that modify a widget's properties (see Modifying FLTK Widget Appearance). It is automatically output by FLroller and must not be set by the user label. (The user label is a double-quoted string containing some user-provided text placed near the widget.)

label -- a double-quoted string containing some user-provided text, placed near the corresponding widget.

imin -- minimum value of output range.

imax -- maximum value of output range.

istep -- a floating-point number indicating the increment of valuator value corresponding to of each mouse click. The istep argument allows the user to arbitrarily slow roller's motion, enabling arbitrary precision.

iexp -- an integer number denoting the behaviour of valuator:

  • 0 = valuator output is linear

  • -1 = valuator output is exponential

All other positive numbers for iexp indicate the number of an existing table that is used for indexing. Linear interpolation is provided in table indexing. A negative table number suppresses interpolation.

[Warning] IMPORTANT!

Notice that the tables used by valuators must be created with the ftgen opcode and placed in the orchestra before the corresponding valuator. They can not placed in the score. In fact, tables placed in the score are created later than the initialization of the opcodes placed in the header section of the orchestra.

itype -- an integer number denoting the appearance of the valuator.

The itype argument can be set to the following values:

  • 1 - horizontal roller

  • 2 - vertical roller

idisp -- a handle value that was output from a previous instance of the FLvalue opcode to display the current value of the current valuator in the FLvalue widget itself. If the user doesn't want to use this feature that displays current values, it must be set to a negative number by the user.

iwidth -- width of widget.

iheight -- height of widget.

ix -- horizontal position of upper left corner of the valuator, relative to the upper left corner of corresponding window (expressed in pixels).

iy -- vertical position of upper left corner of the valuator, relative to the upper left corner of corresponding window (expressed in pixels).
