wxStatusBar

A status bar is a narrow window that can be placed along the bottom of a frame to give small amounts of status information. It can contain one or more fields, one or more of which can be variable length according to the size of the window.

Window styles

wxST_SIZEGRIP On Windows 95, displays a gripper at right-hand side of the status bar.

See also window styles overview.

Remarks

It is possible to create controls and other windows on the status bar. Position these windows from an OnSize event handler.

wxStatusBar::wxStatusBar



wxStatusBar(void)

Default constructor.



wxStatusBar(wxWindow* parent, wxWindowID id, long style = wxST_SIZEGRIP, const wxString& name = ``statusBar")

Constructor, creating the window.

Parameters

parent
The window parent, usually a frame.

id
The window identifier. It may take a value of -1 to indicate a default value.

style
The window style. See wxStatusBar.

name
The name of the window. This parameter is used to associate a name with the item, allowing the application user to set Motif resource values for individual windows.

wxStatusBar::Create



wxStatusBar::~wxStatusBar



void ~wxStatusBar(void)

Destructor.



wxStatusBar::Create



bool Create(wxWindow* parent, wxWindowID id, long style = wxST_SIZEGRIP, const wxString& name = ``statusBar")

Creates the window, for two-step construction.

See wxStatusBar::wxStatusBar for details.



wxStatusBar::GetFieldRect

virtual bool GetFieldRect(int i, wxRect& rect) const

Returns the size and position of a field's internal bounding rectangle.

Parameters

i
The field in question.

rect
The rectangle values are placed in this variable.

Return value

true if the field index is valid, false otherwise.

See also

wxRect

wxPerl での注意点: In wxPerl this function returns a Wx::Rect if the field index is valid, undef otherwise.



wxStatusBar::GetFieldsCount

int GetFieldsCount(void) const

Returns the number of fields in the status bar.



wxStatusBar::GetStatusText

virtual wxString GetStatusText(int i = 0) const

Returns the string associated with a status bar field.

Parameters

i
The number of the status field to retrieve, starting from zero.

Return value

The status field string if the field is valid, otherwise the empty string.

wxStatusBar::SetStatusText



wxStatusBar::PopStatusText



void PopStatusText(int field = 0)

Sets the field text to the top of the stack, and pops the stack of saved strings.

See also

wxStatusBar::PushStatusText



wxStatusBar::PushStatusText



void PushStatusText(const wxString& string, int field = 0)

Saves the current field text in a per field stack, and sets the field text to the string passed as argument.



wxStatusBar::SetFieldsCount



virtual void SetFieldsCount(int number = 1, int* widths = NULL)

Sets the number of fields, and optionally the field widths.

wxPython での注意点: Only the first parameter is accepted. Use SetStatusWidths to set the widths of the fields.

wxPerl での注意点: In wxPerl this function accepts only the n parameter. Use SetStatusWidths to set the field widths.

Parameters

number
The number of fields.

widths
An array of n integers interpreted in the same way as in SetStatusWidths



wxStatusBar::SetMinHeight



void SetMinHeight(int height)

Sets the minimal possible height for the status bar. The real height may be bigger than the height specified here depending on the size of the font used by the status bar.



wxStatusBar::SetStatusText



virtual void SetStatusText(const wxString& text, int i = 0)

Sets the text for one field.

Parameters

text
The text to be set. Use an empty string (``") to clear the field.

i
The field to set, starting from zero.

wxStatusBar::GetStatusText, wxFrame::SetStatusText



wxStatusBar::SetStatusWidths



virtual void SetStatusWidths(int n, int * widths)

Sets the widths of the fields in the status line. There are two types of fields: fixed widths one and variable width fields. For the fixed width fields you should specify their (constant) width in pixels. For the variable width fields, specify a negative number which indicates how the field should expand: the space left for all variable width fields is divided between them according to the absolute value of this number. A variable width field with width of $-2$ gets twice as much of it as a field with width $-1$ and so on.

For example, to create one fixed width field of width $50$ in the right part of the status bar and two more fields which get $66$% and $33$% of the remaining space correspondingly, you should use an array containing $-2$, $-1$ and $100$.

Parameters

n
The number of fields in the status bar. Must be equal to the number passed to SetFieldsCount the last time it was called.

widths
Contains an array of n integers, each of which is either an absolute status field width in pixels if positive or indicates a variable width field if negative.

Remarks

The widths of the variable fields are calculated from the total width of all fields, minus the sum of widths of the non-variable fields, divided by the number of variable fields.

wxStatusBar::SetFieldsCount, wxFrame::SetStatusWidths

wxPython での注意点: Only a single parameter is required, a Python list of integers.

wxPerl での注意点: In wxPerl this method takes as parameters the field widths.



wxStatusBar::SetStatusStyles



virtual void SetStatusStyles(int n, int * styles)

Sets the styles of the fields in the status line which can make fields appear flat or raised instead of the standard sunken 3D border.

Parameters

n
The number of fields in the status bar. Must be equal to the number passed to SetFieldsCount the last time it was called.

styles
Contains an array of n integers with the styles for each field. There are three possible styles:

wxSB_NORMAL (default) The field appears sunken with a standard 3D border.
wxSB_FLAT No border is painted around the field so that it appears flat.
wxSB_RAISED A raised 3D border is painted around the field.
