Tickit::Widget::Fill - fill an area with repeated text


This class provides a widget which displays a given piece of text repeatedly over its entire area. By default the text is a single space, meaning the area will be entirely drawn with spaces.


The default style pen is used as the widget pen.

The following style keys are used:

text => STRING

The text to display in a repeating pattern on the window.

skew => INT

If defined, successive lines will be advanced by this number of columns (which may be negative) to create a skewed repeating pattern.
