- Commands set for Drag facilities
Commands of this namespace enable user to define a BWidget or a Tk widget as a drag site.
This command provides a simple way to include options relatives to a drag site into
BWidget resources definition.
It includes the options needed for register: -dragevent, initialized to
event, -draginitcmd and -dragendcmd, initialized to empty string,
and two new options:
|-dragenabled||Specifies wether or not drag is active (initialized to 0)
|-dragtype||Default or alternate dragged data type (initialized to type)
This command is used to declare path as a drag site. Options are:
Command called when drag terminates (ie when user release drag icon).
This command is called with the following arguments:
If the drop does not occurs, the target and the operation are empty string and the result
- the pathname of the drag source (the widget itself),
- the pathname of the drop target,
- the operation,
- the type of the dragged data,
- the dragged data,
- result of the drop (result of the call to -dropcmd of the target),
Specifies the number of the mouse button associated to the drag.
Must be 1, 2 or 3.
Command called when drag initiates. When the event of option dragevent occurs on
path, this command is called with the following arguments:
If the command returns an empty string, then the drag will be
suppressed. Otherwise the command must return a list containing three
- pathname of the drag source (path),
- root x-coordinate of pointer,
- root y-coordinate of pointer,
- a toplevel created to represent dragged data. When returning, if it
has no children, a bitmap is automatically displayed.
Note that even if copy does not appear in the list of basic
operation, it is considered as an acceptable operation, since
copy semantic does not modify the drag source.
- the type of the data,
- the list of acceptable basic operations (copy, move and link)
- and the data.
This command provides a simple way to call register during a BWidget creation or
setdrag verifies the modification flag of options dragenabled and
dragevent and calls register if needed according to the options values and
initcmd and endcmd arguments. draginitcmd and dragendcmd are not
taken from options of widget because they are considered as user command, called by
BWidget implementation of drag-init and drag-end events.
- path is the pathname of the BWidget,
- subpath is the pathname of the tk widget where drag event occurs,
- initcmd BWidget command for drag-init event,
- endcmd BWidget command for drag-end event,
- force specifies wether or not to call register whenever no option value has
changed (0 by default - for BWidget configuration, use 1 for BWidget creation).
