NAME

Tickit::Widget::RadioButton - a widget allowing a selection from multiple options

SYNOPSIS

 use Tickit;
 use Tickit::Widget::RadioButton;
 use Tickit::Widget::VBox;

 my $group = Tickit::Widget::RadioButton::Group->new;

 my $vbox = Tickit::Widget::VBox->new;
 $vbox->add( Tickit::Widget::RadioButton->new(
       caption => "Radio button $_",
       group   => $group,
 ) ) for 1 .. 5;

 Tickit->new( root => $vbox )->run;

DESCRIPTION

This class provides a widget which allows a selection of one value from a group of related options. It provides a clickable area and a visual indication of which button in the group is the one currently active. Selecting a new button within a group will unselect the previously-selected one.

This widget is part of an experiment in evolving the design of the Tickit::Style widget integration code, and such is subject to change of details.

STYLE

The default style pen is used as the widget pen. The following style pen prefixes are also used:

tick => PEN

The pen used to render the tick marker

The following style keys are used:

tick => STRING

The text used to indicate the active button

spacing => INT

Number of columns of spacing between the tick mark and the caption text

The following style tags are used:

:active

Set when this button is the active one of the group.

The following style actions are used:

activate

The main action to activate the on_click handler.

CONSTRUCTOR

$radiobutton = Tickit::Widget::RadioButton->new( %args )

Constructs a new Tickit::Widget::RadioButton object.

Takes the following named argmuents

label => STRING

The label text to display alongside this button.

group => Tickit::Widget::RadioButton::Group

Optional. If supplied, the group that the button should belong to. If not supplied, a new group will be constructed that can be accessed using the group accessor.

value => SCALAR

Optional. If supplied, used to set the button's identification value, which is passed to the group's on_changed callback.

ACCESSORS

$group = $radiobutton->group

Returns the Tickit::Widget::RadioButton::Group this button belongs to.

$label = $radiobutton->label

$radiobutton->set_label( $label )

Returns or sets the label text of the button.

$on_toggle = $radiobutton->on_toggle

$radiobutton->set_on_toggle( $on_toggle )

Return or set the CODE reference to be called when the button state is changed.

 $on_toggle->( $radiobutton, $active )

When the radio tick mark moves from one button to another, the old button is marked unactive before the new one is marked active.

$value = $radiobutton->value

$radiobutton->set_value( $value )

Return or set the scalar value used to identify the radio button to the group's on_changed callback. This can be any scalar value; it is simply stored by the button and not otherwise used.

METHODS

$radiobutton->activate

Sets this button as the active member of the group, deactivating the previous one.

$active = $radiobutton->is_active

Returns true if this button is the active button of the group.

GROUPS

Every Tickit::Widget::RadioButton belongs to a group. Only one button can be active in a group at any one time. The group accessor returns the group the button is a member of. The following methods are available on it.

A group can be explicitly created to pass to a button's constructor, or one will be implicitly created for a button if none is passed.

$group = Tickit::Widget::RadioButton::Group->new

Returns a new group.

$radiobutton = $group->active

Returns the button which is currently active in the group

$on_changed = $group->on_changed

$group->set_on_changed( $on_changed )

Return or set the CODE reference to be called when the active member of the group changes. This may be more convenient than setting the on_toggle callback of each button in the group.

The callback is passed the currently-active button, and its value.

 $on_changed->( $active, $value )
