Tickit::Event - event information structures
When event handlers bound to Tickit::Term or Tickit::Window instances are invoked they receive an object instance to contain information about the event. Details of the event can be accessed as via accessor methods on these instances.
The following methods are shared between Tickit::Event::Key and Tickit::Event::Mouse instances.
Convenient shortcuts to tests on the mod bitmask to test if each of the modifiers is set.
The Tickit::RenderBuffer instance containing the buffer for this redraw cycle.
A Tickit::Rect instance containing the region of the window that needs repainting.
This accessor has two forms of operation.
The new behaviour is that it returns a dualvar giving the focus event type as an integer or a string event name (in or out). This behaviour is selected if the method is invoked with any true value as an argument.
The legacy behaviour is that it returns a simple boolean giving the focus direction; 1 for in, 0 for out. This legacy behaviour will be removed in a later version.
The child Tickit::Window instance for child-focus notify events.
A dualvar giving the key event type as an integer or string event name (text or key).
A string containing the key event string.
Printing keys besides Space (letters, numbers, symbols) are encoded as a single-character string. Numbered function keys are named F1, F2, etc... Other non-printing keys such as arrows, cursor control, and Space use a multi-character name taken from a list of known names, which includes:
Backspace Tab Enter Escape Space
Up Down Left Right
Insert Delete PageUp PageDown Home End
Modifiers are prefixed onto this string with a hyphen each; M- for Meta (or Alt), C- for Control and S- for Shift. Printing keys will never include a Shift modifier; non-printing keys might.
An integer bitmask indicating the modifier state.
A dualvar giving the mouse event type as an integer or string event name (press, drag, release or wheel).
An integer for non-wheel events or a dualvar for wheel events giving the wheel direction (up or down).
Integers giving the mouse position.
Integers giving the new size.
