FLtext

FLtext — A FLTK widget opcode that creates a textbox.

Description

FLtext allows the user to modify a parameter value by directly typing it into a text field.

Syntax

kout, ihandle FLtext "label", imin, imax, istep, itype, 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 FLtext 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 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 the mouse dragging. The istep argument allows the user to arbitrarily slow mouse motion, enabling arbitrary precision.

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

The itype argument can be set to the following values:

  • 1 - normal behaviour

  • 2 - dragging operation is suppressed, instead it will appear two arrow buttons. A mouse-click on one of these buttons can increase/decrease the output value.

  • 3 - text editing is suppressed, only mouse dragging modifies the output value.

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).

Performance

kout -- output value

FLtext allows the user to modify a parameter value by directly typing it into a text field:

FLtext.

FLtext.

Its value can also be modified by clicking on it and dragging the mouse horizontally. The istep argument allows the user to arbitrarily set the response on mouse dragging.

Examples

Here is an example of the FLtext opcode. It uses the file FLtext.csd.
