Adding Tab and Slaves to a TabCtrl [message #48418] Mon, 03 July 2017 14:43 Go to next message

When I try adding a tab and some slaves to a TabCtrl widget, the tab is covering everything and the slaves are not visible anymore.
The TabCtrl and the other widgets are all set in a layout file.

Slaving code:
tab_settings.Add(t_("Language"))
    .Slave(&lng_language)
    .Slave(&txt_lang_check)
    .Slave(&b_preview)
    .Slave(&txt_preview);


If I don't slave the widgets they are still visible on top of the tab but you can't change tabs then so it is a problem.
I tested tabbing already when I started working with U++ a few weeks ago and it worked fine but now it doesn't and I can't remember what I did different.
Any ideas?

Ok never mind my first question. I just realized that the TabCtrl can only have one widget and because I hide the last one I slave it does not appear.
But changing it to a structure with a ParentCtrl did not change anything. Nothing is shown in my tab.
This is the code I use now:
ParentCtrl languageCtrl;
languageCtrl
    << lng_language
    << txt_lang_check
    << b_preview
    << txt_preview;
    
tab_settings.Add(languageCtrl.SizePos(), t_("Language"));

try this :
    tab_settings.Add(lng_language.SizePos(), "lng_language");
    tab_settings.Add(txt_lang_check.SizePos(), "txt_lang_check");
    tab_settings.Add(b_preview.SizePos(), "b_preview");
    tab_settings.Add(txt_preview.SizePos(), "txt_preview");

That only adds tabs for every widget and is not putting every widget in one tab.
So no that is not working for me.

ah, in this case, you need coordinate and size of each widget.
ParentCtrl languageCtrl;
languageCtrl
    << lng_language.LeftPos(0, 20)
    << txt_lang_check.LeftPos(22, 20)
    << b_preview.LeftPos(42, 20)
    << txt_preview.LeftPos(62, 20);
    
tab_settings.Add(languageCtrl.SizePos(), t_("Language"));

or you can use designer like this example : TabDlg

Ok I guess the TabDlg option should work.
But for better understanding on the first option:
I have a .lay file where the positions are all set. Why should I need to reset it again?
And by the way it doesn't work if I add the positioning again Wink

This is my current calling code:
SettingsWindow::SettingsWindow()
{
    m_language = GetCurrentLanguage();
    
    CtrlLayout(*this, t_("Settings"));
    InitTabs();
        
    b_ok <<= THISBACK(OnClickOK);
    b_cancel <<= THISBACK(OnClickCancel);
}

void SettingsWindow::InitTabs()
{
    ParentCtrl languageCtrl;
    /*languageCtrl.AddChild(&lng_language);
    languageCtrl.AddChild(&txt_lang_check);
    languageCtrl.AddChild(&b_preview);
    languageCtrl.AddChild(&txt_preview);
    /**/ // did not work as well
    languageCtrl
        << lng_language
        << txt_lang_check
        << b_preview
        << txt_preview;
    /**/
    tab_settings.Add(languageCtrl.SizePos(), t_("Language"));
    txt_preview.Show(false);
    b_preview <<= THISBACK(OnClickPreview);
    
    m_retriever // header -> CtrlRetriever m_retriever
        (lng_language, m_language) // header -> int m_language
    ;
}


And this is the .lay:
LAYOUT(SettingsLayout, 250, 300)
	ITEM(TabCtrl, tab_settings, LeftPosZ(0, 250).TopPosZ(0, 300))
	ITEM(Button, b_ok, SetLabel(t_("OK")).LeftPosZ(10, 100).BottomPosZ(10, 30))
	ITEM(Button, b_cancel, SetLabel(t_("Cancel")).RightPosZ(10, 100).BottomPosZ(10, 30))
	ITEM(LNGCtrl, lng_language, LeftPosZ(30, 190).TopPosZ(50, 30))
	ITEM(StaticText, txt_lang_check, SetText(t_("Press the preview button.")).SetFont(StdFontZ(11)).LeftPosZ(30, 190).TopPosZ(90, 30))
	ITEM(Button, b_preview, SetLabel(t_("Preview")).LeftPosZ(30, 50).TopPosZ(125, 20))
	ITEM(StaticText, txt_preview, SetText(t_("English text")).SetAlign(ALIGN_CENTER).SetFont(StdFontZ(16)).SetFrame(ThinInsetFrame()).LeftPosZ(30, 190).TopPosZ(150, 100))
END_LAYOUT


Thanks for your effort Thumbs Up

1 - the new .Lay
LAYOUT(SettingsLayout, 250, 300)
	ITEM(TabCtrl, tab_settings, LeftPosZ(0, 250).TopPosZ(0, 300))
END_LAYOUT

LAYOUT(languageCtrlLayout, 256, 328)
	ITEM(Button, b_ok, SetLabel(t_("OK")).LeftPosZ(16, 100).BottomPosZ(22, 30))
	ITEM(Button, b_cancel, SetLabel(t_("Cancel")).RightPosZ(16, 100).BottomPosZ(22, 30))
	ITEM(LNGCtrl, lng_language, LeftPosZ(36, 190).TopPosZ(18, 30))
	ITEM(StaticText, txt_lang_check, SetText(t_("Press the preview button.")).SetFont(StdFontZ(11)).LeftPosZ(36, 190).TopPosZ(58, 30))
	ITEM(Button, b_preview, SetLabel(t_("Preview")).LeftPosZ(36, 50).TopPosZ(93, 20))
	ITEM(StaticText, txt_preview, SetText(t_("English text")).SetAlign(ALIGN_CENTER).SetFont(StdFontZ(16)).SetFrame(ThinInsetFrame()).LeftPosZ(36, 190).TopPosZ(118, 100))
END_LAYOUT



2 - in SettingsLayout class, add the instance
class SettingsLayout : public ..
{
...
    WithlanguageCtrlLayout<ParentCtrl> languageCtrl;
...
};


3 - add a CtrlLayout in the constructor, and refere to tab widget by languageCtrl.x:
SettingsWindow::SettingsWindow()
{
    m_language = GetCurrentLanguage();
    
    CtrlLayout(*this, t_("Settings"));
    CtrlLayout(languageCtrl);                  // Line Added
    InitTabs();
        
    languageCtrl.b_ok <<= THISBACK(OnClickOK);  // line modified
    languageCtrl.b_cancel <<= THISBACK(OnClickCancel);   // line modified
}


4 - InitTab:
void SettingsWindow::InitTabs()
{


    tab_settings.Add(languageCtrl.SizePos(), t_("Language"));
    languageCtrl.txt_preview.Show(false);
    languageCtrl.b_preview <<= THISBACK(OnClickPreview);
    
    m_retriever // header -> CtrlRetriever m_retriever
        (languageCtrl.lng_language, m_language) // header -> int m_language
    ;
}
