Tk_GetJustifyFromObj, Tk_GetJustify, Tk_NameOfJustify - translate
between strings and justification styles
Tk_GetJustifyFromObj(interp, objPtr, justifyPtr) |
Tk_GetJustify(interp, string, justifyPtr) |
CONST char * |
Tcl_Interp *interp (in) ||
Interpreter to use for error |
reporting, or NULL. |
Tcl_Obj *objPtr (in/out) ||
String value contains name of jus- |
tification style (left, right, or |
center). The internal rep will be |
modified to cache corresponding |
justify value. |
char *string (in) | |
Same as objPtr except description |
of justification style is passed |
as a string.
int *justifyPtr (out) Pointer to location in which to
store justify value corresponding
to objPtr or string.
Tk_Justify justify (in) Justification style (one of the
values listed below).
Tk_GetJustifyFromObj places in *justifyPtr the justify value corre- |
sponding to objPtr's value. This value will be one of the following:
Means that the text on each line should start at the left edge
of the line; as a result, the right edges of lines may be
Means that the text on each line should end at the right edge of
the line; as a result, the left edges of lines may be ragged.
Means that the text on each line should be centered; as a
result, both the left and right edges of lines may be ragged.
Under normal circumstances the return value is TCL_OK and interp is |
unused. If objPtr doesn't contain a valid justification style or an |
abbreviation of one of these names, TCL_ERROR is returned, *justifyPtr |
is unmodified, and an error message is stored in interp's result if |
interp isn't NULL. Tk_GetJustifyFromObj caches information about the |
return value in objPtr, which speeds up future calls to Tk_GetJusti- |
fyFromObj with the same objPtr. |
Tk_GetJustify is identical to Tk_GetJustifyFromObj except that the |
description of the justification is specified with a string instead of |
an object. This prevents Tk_GetJustify from caching the return value, |
so Tk_GetJustify is less efficient than Tk_GetJustifyFromObj.
Tk_NameOfJustify is the logical inverse of Tk_GetJustify. Given a jus-
tify value it returns a statically-allocated string corresponding to
justify. If justify isn't a legal justify value, then ``unknown justi-
fication style'' is returned.
