Detailed Description

child surface positioner

The xdg_positioner provides a collection of rules for the placement of a child surface relative to a parent surface. Rules can be defined to ensure the child surface remains within the visible area's borders, and to specify how the child surface changes its position, such as sliding along an axis, or flipping around a rectangle. These positioner-created rules are constrained by the requirement that a child surface must intersect with or be at least partially adjacent to its parent surface.

See the various requests for details about possible rules.

At the time of the request, the compositor makes a copy of the rules specified by the xdg_positioner. Thus, after the request is complete the xdg_positioner object can be destroyed or reused; further changes to the object will have no effect on previous usages.

For an xdg_positioner object to be considered complete, it must have a non-zero size set by set_size, and a non-zero anchor rectangle set by set_anchor_rect. Passing an incomplete xdg_positioner object when positioning a surface raises an error.

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

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

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.

wayland::proxy_t::operator bool () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.

Returns

true if there is an underlying object, false if this wrapper is empty

bool wayland::proxy_t::operator!= (const proxy_t & right) const [inherited]

Check whether two wrappers refer to different objects.

bool wayland::proxy_t::operator== (const proxy_t & right) const [inherited]

Check whether two wrappers refer to the same object.

bool wayland::proxy_t::proxy_has_object () const [inherited]

Check whether this wrapper actually wraps an object.

Returns

true if there is an underlying object, false if this wrapper is empty

void wayland::proxy_t::proxy_release () [inherited]

Release the wrapped object (if any), making this an empty wrapper. Note that display_t instances cannot be released this way. Attempts to do so are ignored.

Examples foreign_display.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_anchor (zxdg_positioner_v6_anchor const & anchor)

set anchor rectangle anchor edges

Parameters

anchor bit mask of anchor edges

Defines a set of edges for the anchor rectangle. These are used to derive an anchor point that the child surface will be positioned relative to. If two orthogonal edges are specified (e.g. 'top' and 'left'), then the anchor point will be the intersection of the edges (e.g. the top left position of the rectangle); otherwise, the derived anchor point will be centered on the specified edge, or in the center of the anchor rectangle if no edge is specified.

If two parallel anchor edges are specified (e.g. 'left' and 'right'), the invalid_input error is raised.

Definition at line 9007 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_anchor_rect (int32_t x, int32_t y, int32_t width, int32_t height)

set the anchor rectangle within the parent surface

Parameters

x x position of anchor rectangle
y y position of anchor rectangle
width width of anchor rectangle
height height of anchor rectangle

Specify the anchor rectangle within the parent surface that the child surface will be placed relative to. The rectangle is relative to the window geometry as defined by xdg_surface.set_window_geometry of the parent surface. The rectangle must be at least 1x1 large.

When the xdg_positioner object is used to position a child surface, the anchor rectangle may not extend outside the window geometry of the positioned child's parent surface.

If a zero or negative size is set the invalid_input error is raised.

Definition at line 9002 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_constraint_adjustment (zxdg_positioner_v6_constraint_adjustment const & constraint_adjustment)

set the adjustment to be done when constrained

Parameters

constraint_adjustment bit mask of constraint adjustments

Specify how the window should be positioned if the originally intended position caused the surface to be constrained, meaning at least partially outside positioning boundaries set by the compositor. The adjustment is set by constructing a bitmask describing the adjustment to be made when the surface is constrained on that axis.

If no bit for one axis is set, the compositor will assume that the child surface should not change its position on that axis when constrained.

If more than one bit for one axis is set, the order of how adjustments are applied is specified in the corresponding adjustment descriptions.

The default adjustment is none.

Definition at line 9017 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_gravity (zxdg_positioner_v6_gravity const & gravity)

set child surface gravity

Parameters

gravity bit mask of gravity directions

Defines in what direction a surface should be positioned, relative to the anchor point of the parent surface. If two orthogonal gravities are specified (e.g. 'bottom' and 'right'), then the child surface will be placed in the specified direction; otherwise, the child surface will be centered over the anchor point on any axis that had no gravity specified.

If two parallel gravities are specified (e.g. 'left' and 'right'), the invalid_input error is raised.

Definition at line 9012 of file wayland-client-protocol-unstable.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_offset (int32_t x, int32_t y)

set surface position offset

Parameters

x surface position x offset
y surface position y offset

Specify the surface position offset relative to the position of the anchor on the anchor rectangle and the anchor on the surface. For example if the anchor of the anchor rectangle is at (x, y), the surface has the gravity bottom|right, and the offset is (ox, oy), the calculated surface position will be (x + ox, y + oy). The offset position of the surface is the one used for constraint testing. See set_constraint_adjustment.

An example use case is placing a popup menu on top of a user interface element, while aligning the user interface element of the parent surface with some user interface element placed somewhere in the popup surface.

void wayland::proxy_t::set_queue (event_queue_t queue) [inherited]

Assign a proxy to an event queue.

Parameters

queue The event queue that will handle this proxy

Assign proxy to event queue. Events coming from proxy will be queued in queue instead of the display's main queue.

See also: display_t::dispatch_queue().

Examples proxy_wrapper.cpp.

void zxdg_positioner_v6_t::set_size (int32_t width, int32_t height)

set the size of the to-be positioned rectangle

Parameters

width width of positioned rectangle
height height of positioned rectangle

Set the size of the surface that is to be positioned with the positioner object. The size is in surface-local coordinates and corresponds to the window geometry. See xdg_surface.set_window_geometry.

If a zero or negative size is set the invalid_input error is raised.
