NAME

wxPerl::Styles - shortcuts for wxFOO style constants

SYNOPSIS

This package encapsulates stringwise access to wxPerl constants, primarily for use in specifying styles, but also for comparing constants.

  use Wx qw(
    ALIGN_RIGHT
  );
  ... wxALIGN_RIGHT ... ;

Becomes:

  use Wx ();
  use wxPerl::Styles 'wxVal';
  ... wxVal('align_right') ... ;

Names will be uppercased automatically.

When using wxPerl::Constructors, style is always a named parameter, so this gives you the 'style => ...' bit:

  use Wx ();
  use wxPerl::Constructors;
  use wxPerl::Styles 'style';
  ...

  my $text_ctrl = wxPerl::TextCtrl->new($self, 'some text here',
    style('hscroll', te => 'process_enter|multiline')
  );

NOTE

This does delay typo errors until run-time, but widget-construction is pretty close to compile time, and the error messages are likely to be more informative than 'syntax error'. Also, I think that's a small price to pay for not having all of those extra methods kicking around in your class.

wxVal

  my $style = wxVal('align_right',
    te => 'PROCESS_ENTER|MULTILINE'
  );

style

Same as wxVal(), but returns (style => $style) for use with wxPerl::Constructors named parameter lists.

  my %param = style(@list);

ID

Hash-parameter shortcut for 'id => Wx::wxID_OK()' and etc.

  my %param = ID('ok');

_mk_constant

  my $const = _mk_constant($prefix, $string);

_get_constant

Expects a fully qualified subname such as 'Wx::wxALIGN_RIGHT'.

  my $const = _get_constant($name);
