Detailed Description

text input

An object used for text input. Adds support for text input and input methods to applications. A text_input object is created from a wl_text_input_manager and corresponds typically to a text entry in an application.

Requests are used to activate/deactivate the text_input object and set state information like surrounding and selected text or the content type. The information about entered text is sent to the text_input object via the pre-edit and commit events. Using this interface removes the need for applications to directly process hardware key events and compose text out of them.

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 The text input can then ignore events from the input method which are based on an outdated state (for example after a reset).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.

Member Function Documentation

void zwp_text_input_v1_t::activate (seat_t const & seat, surface_t const & surface)

request activation

Parameters

seat
surface

Requests the text_input object to be activated (typically when the text entry gets focus).

The seat argument is a wl_seat which maintains the focus for this activation. The surface argument is a wl_surface assigned to the text_input object and tracked for focus lost. The enter event is emitted on successful activation.

Definition at line 7575 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

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_text_input_v1_t::commit_state (uint32_t serial)

Parameters

serial used to identify the known state

Definition at line 7620 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_text_input_v1_t::deactivate (seat_t const & seat)

request deactivation

Parameters

seat

Requests the text_input object to be deactivated (typically when the text entry lost focus). The seat argument is a wl_seat which was used for activation.

Definition at line 7580 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

commit

Parameters

serial serial of the latest known text input state
text

Notify when text should be inserted into the editor widget. 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 also be 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 should be removed.

std::function< void(int32_t, int32_t)> & zwp_text_input_v1_t::on_cursor_position ()

set cursor to new position

Parameters

index
anchor

Notify when the cursor or anchor position should be modified.

This event should be handled as part of a following commit_string event.

Definition at line 7670 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

std::function< void(int32_t, uint32_t)> & zwp_text_input_v1_t::on_delete_surrounding_text ()

delete surrounding text

Parameters

index
length

Notify when the text around the current cursor position should be deleted.

Index is relative to the current cursor (in bytes). Length is the length of deleted text (in bytes).

This event should be handled as part of a following commit_string event.

Definition at line 7675 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

std::function< void(surface_t)> & zwp_text_input_v1_t::on_enter ()

enter event

Parameters

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 a wl_keyboard key_state. Modifiers are a mask for effective modifiers (where the modifier indices are set by the modifiers_map event)

text
commit

Notify when a new composing text (pre-edit) should be set around the current cursor position. Any previously set composing text should be removed.

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

The text input should also handle all preedit_style and preedit_cursor events occurring directly before preedit_string.

Definition at line 7650 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

set content purpose and hint

Parameters

hint
purpose

Sets the content purpose and content hint. While the purpose is the basic purpose of an input field, the hint flags allow to modify some of the behavior.

When no content type is explicitly set, a normal content purpose with default hints (auto completion, auto correction, auto capitalization) should be assumed.

Definition at line 7605 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zwp_text_input_v1_t::set_cursor_rectangle (int32_t x, int32_t y, int32_t width, int32_t height)
