virtual voidgetLastChild(int16_t x, int16_t y, Drawable ** last)
Since a Widget is only one Drawable, Widget::getLastChild simply yields itself as result, but only if the Widget isVisible and isTouchable.

Box#

Box()

Construct a new Box with a default alpha value of 255 (solid)

Box#

Box(uint16_twidth ,
uint16_theight ,
colortypecolor ,
uint8_talpha =255
)

Construct a Box with the given size and color (and optionally alpha).

Parameters:
widthThe width of the box.
heightThe height of the box.
colorThe color of the box.
alpha(Optional) The alpha of the box. Default is 255 (solid).

draw#

virtual void draw(const Rect &invalidatedArea)

Draw this drawable.

It is a requirement that the draw implementation does not draw outside the region specified by invalidatedArea.

Parameters:
invalidatedAreaThe sub-region of this drawable that needs to be redrawn, expressed in coordinates relative to its parent (e.g. for a complete redraw, invalidatedArea will be (0, 0, width, height).

Reimplements: touchgfx::Drawable::draw

Reimplemented by: touchgfx::BoxWithBorder::draw

getAlpha#

FORCE_INLINE_FUNCTION uint8_t getAlpha()const

Gets the current alpha value of the widget.

The alpha value is in range 255 (solid) to 0 (invisible).

Returns:

The current alpha value.

See also:

getColor#

FORCE_INLINE_FUNCTION colortype getColor()const

Gets the current color of the Box.

Returns:

The current color of the box.

See also:

getSolidRect#

virtual Rect getSolidRect()const

Get (the largest possible) rectangle that is guaranteed to be solid (opaque).

This information is important, as any Drawable underneath the solid area does not need to be drawn.

Returns:

The solid rectangle part of the Drawable.

Note

The rectangle returned must be relative to upper left corner of the Drawable, meaning that a completely solid widget should return the full size Rect(0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight()). If no area can be guaranteed to be solid, an empty Rect(0, 0, 0, 0) must be returned. Failing to return the correct rectangle may result in errors on the display.

Reimplements: touchgfx::Drawable::getSolidRect

setAlpha#

void setAlpha(uint8_tnewAlpha)

Sets the opacity (alpha value).

This can be used to fade it away by gradually decreasing the alpha value from 255 (solid) to 0 (invisible).

Parameters:
newAlphaThe new alpha value. 255=solid, 0=invisible.
Note

The user code must call invalidate() in order to update the display.

See also:

setColor#

void setColor(colortypecolor)

Sets the color of the Box.

Parameters:
colorThe color of the box.

uint8_t alpha

color#

colortype color
