Detailed Description

input method context

Corresponds to a text input on the input method side. An input method context is created on text input activation on the input method side. It allows receiving information about the text input from the application via events. Input method contexts do not keep state after deactivation and should be destroyed after deactivation is handled.

Text is generally UTF-8 encoded, indices and lengths are in bytes.

Serials are used to synchronize the state between the text input and an input method. New serials are sent by the text input in the commit_state request and are used by the input method to indicate the known text input state in events like preedit_string, commit_string, and keysym. The text input can then ignore events from the input method which are based on an outdated state (for example after a reset).

Warning! The protocol described in this file is experimental and backward incompatible changes may be made. Backward compatible changes may be added together with the corresponding interface version bump. Backward incompatible changes are done by bumping the version number in the protocol and interface names and resetting the interface version. Once the protocol is to be declared stable, the 'z' prefix and the version number in the protocol and interface names are removed and the interface version number is reset.

Member Enumeration Documentation

enum wayland::proxy_t::wrapper_type [strong], [inherited]

Underlying wl_proxy type and properties of a proxy_t that affect construction, destruction, and event handling

Enumerator

standard

C pointer is a standard type compatible with wl_proxy*. Events are dispatched and it is destructed when the proxy_t is destructed. User data is set.

display

C pointer is a wl_display*. No events are dispatched, wl_display_disconnect is called when the proxy_t is destructed. User data is set.

foreign

C pointer is a standard type compatible with wl_proxy*, but another library owns it and it should not be touched in a way that could affect the operation of the other library. No events are dispatched, wl_proxy_destroy is not called when the proxy_t is destructed, user data is not touched. Consequently, there is no reference counting for the proxy_t. Lifetime of such wrappers should preferably be short to minimize the chance that the owning library decides to destroy the wl_proxy.

proxy_wrapper

C pointer is a wl_proxy* that was constructed with wl_proxy_create_wrapper. No events are dispatched, wl_proxy_wrapper_destroy is called when the proxy_t is destroyed. Reference counting is active. A reference to the proxy_t creating this proxy wrapper is held to extend its lifetime until after the proxy wrapper is destroyed.

Definition at line 115 of file wayland-client.hpp.

Member Function Documentation

wl_proxy* wayland::proxy_t::c_ptr () const [inherited]

Get a pointer to the underlying C struct.

Returns

The underlying wl_proxy wrapped by this proxy_t if it exists, otherwise an exception is thrown

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::commit_string (uint32_t serial, std::string const & text)

commit string

Parameters

serial serial of the latest known text input state
text

Send the commit string text for insertion to the application.

The text to commit could be either just a single character after a key press or the result of some composing (pre-edit). It could be also an empty text when some text should be removed (see delete_surrounding_text) or when the input cursor should be moved (see cursor_position).

Any previously set composing text will be removed.

Definition at line 4265 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::cursor_position (int32_t index, int32_t anchor)

set cursor to a new position

Parameters

index
anchor

Set the cursor and anchor to a new position. Index is the new cursor position in bytes (when >= 0 this is relative to the end of the inserted text, otherwise it is relative to the beginning of the inserted text). Anchor is the new anchor position in bytes (when >= 0 this is relative to the end of the inserted text, otherwise it is relative to the beginning of the inserted text). When there should be no selected text, anchor should be the same as index.

This request will be handled on the text_input side directly following a commit_string request.

Definition at line 4290 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::delete_surrounding_text (int32_t index, uint32_t length)

delete text

Parameters

index
length

Remove the surrounding text.

This request will be handled on the text_input side directly following a commit_string request.

Definition at line 4285 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

std::string wayland::proxy_t::get_class () const [inherited]

Get the interface name (class) of a proxy object.

Returns

The interface name of the object associated with the proxy

uint32_t wayland::proxy_t::get_id () const [inherited]

Get the id of a proxy object.

Returns

The id the object associated with the proxy

Examples dump.cpp.

uint32_t wayland::proxy_t::get_version () const [inherited]

Get the protocol object version of a proxy object. Gets the protocol object version of a proxy object, or 0 if the proxy was created with unversioned API.

A returned value of 0 means that no version information is available, so the caller must make safe assumptions about the object's real version.

display_t will always return version 0.

Returns

The protocol object version of the proxy or 0

wrapper_type wayland::proxy_t::get_wrapper_type () const [inline], [inherited]

Get the type of a proxy object.

Definition at line 301 of file wayland-client.hpp.

keyboard_t zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::grab_keyboard ()

grab hardware keyboard Allow an input method to receive hardware keyboard input and process key events to generate text events (with pre-edit) over the wire. This allows input methods which compose multiple key events for inputting text like it is done for CJK languages.

Definition at line 4305 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::key (uint32_t serial, uint32_t time, uint32_t key, keyboard_key_state const & state)

forward key event

Parameters

serial serial from wl_keyboard::key
time time from wl_keyboard::key
key key from wl_keyboard::key
state state from wl_keyboard::key

Forward a wl_keyboard::key event to the client that was not processed by the input method itself. Should be used when filtering key events with grab_keyboard. The arguments should be the ones from the wl_keyboard::key event.

For generating custom key events use the keysym request instead.

Definition at line 4311 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::keysym (uint32_t serial, uint32_t time, uint32_t sym, keyboard_key_state const & state, uint32_t modifiers)

keysym

Parameters

serial serial of the latest known text input state
time
sym
state
modifiers

Notify when a key event was sent. Key events should not be used for normal text input operations, which should be done with commit_string, delete_surrounding_text, etc. The key event follows the wl_keyboard key event convention. Sym is an XKB keysym, state is a wl_keyboard key_state.

Definition at line 4300 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_input_method_context_v1_t::language (uint32_t serial, std::string const & language)

mods_depressed mods_depressed from wl_keyboard::modifiers
mods_latched mods_latched from wl_keyboard::modifiers
mods_locked mods_locked from wl_keyboard::modifiers
group group from wl_keyboard::modifiers

Forward a wl_keyboard::modifiers event to the client that was not processed by the input method itself. Should be used when filtering key events with grab_keyboard. The arguments should be the ones from the wl_keyboard::modifiers event.

Definition at line 4316 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

text
commit

Send the pre-edit string text to the application text input.

The commit text can be used to replace the pre-edit text on reset (for example on unfocus).

Previously sent preedit_style and preedit_cursor requests are also processed by the text_input.

Definition at line 4270 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

This request should be sent before sending a preedit_string request.

Definition at line 4275 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.
