Methods

addAll(…child)

Adds one or more children to this widget. This method will flatten any arrays among the arguments and ignores any null or undefined arguments. Any DOM nodes or widgets will be added to the end, and other objects will be converted to a text node first. Subclasses should normally override the addChildNode() method instead of this one, since that is the basis for DOM node insertion.

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
child {string|Node|Array} <repeatable>
the children to add
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#addAll
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 570

addChildNode(child)

Adds a single child DOM node to this widget. This method is sometimes overridden by child widgets in order to hide or control intermediate DOM nodes required by the widget.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
child {Widget|Node} the DOM node to add
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#addChildNode
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 534

addClass(…cls)

Adds the specified CSS class names to this HTML DOM node.

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
cls {string|Array} <repeatable>
the CSS class names to add
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#addClass
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 333

animate(opts)

Performs a visual effect animation on this widget. This is implemented using the MochiKit.Visual effect package. All options sent to this function will be passed on to the appropriate MochiKit.Visual function.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
opts {Object} the visual effect options
Properties
Name Type Description
effect {string} the MochiKit.Visual effect name
queue {string} the MochiKit.Visual queue handling, defaults to "replace" and a unique scope for each widget (see MochiKit.Visual for full options)
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#animate
Deprecated:
Use CSS animations instead.
Example:
widget.animate({ effect: "fade", duration: 0.5 });
widget.animate({ effect: "Move", transition: "spring", y: 300 });
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 492

blurAll()

Blurs (unfocuses) this DOM node and all relevant child nodes. This function will recursively blur all <a>, <button>, <input>, <textarea> and <select> child nodes found.

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#blurAll
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 510

destroy()

The internal widget destructor function. This method should only be called by destroyWidget() and may be overridden by subclasses. By default this method does nothing.

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#destroy
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 194

disable()

Disables this widget if it was previously enabled. This method is equivalent to calling setAttrs({ disabled: true }).

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#disable
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 424

enable()

Enables this widget if it was previously disabled. This is equivalent to calling setAttrs({ disabled: false }).

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#enable
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 416

getChildNodes() → {Array}

Returns an array with all child DOM nodes. Note that the array is a real JavaScript array, not a dynamic NodeList. This method is sometimes overridden by child widgets in order to hide intermediate DOM nodes required by the widget.

Returns:
{Array} the array of child DOM nodes
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#getChildNodes
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 522

hasClass(…cls) → {boolean}

Checks if this HTML DOM node has the specified CSS class names. Note that more than one CSS class name may be checked, in which case all must be present.

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
cls {string|Array} <repeatable>
the CSS class names to check
Returns:
{boolean} true if all CSS classes were present, or false otherwise
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#hasClass
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 315

hide()

Hides this widget node if it was previously visible. This method is equivalent to calling setAttrs({ hidden: true }). It is safe for all types of widgets, since it only adds the widgetHidden CSS class instead of setting the display style property.

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#hide
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 470

isDisabled() → {boolean}

Checks if this widget is disabled. This method checks both the "widgetDisabled" CSS class and the disabled property. Changes to the disabled status can be made with enable(), disable() or setAttrs().

Returns:
{boolean} true if the widget is disabled, or false otherwise
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#isDisabled
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 395

isHidden() → {boolean}

Checks if this widget node is hidden. This method checks for the existence of the widgetHidden CSS class. It does NOT check the actual widget visibility (the display style property set by animations for example).

Returns:
{boolean} true if the widget is hidden, or false otherwise
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#isHidden
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 437

removeAll()

Removes all children to this widget. This method will also destroy and child widgets and disconnect all signal listeners. This method uses the getChildNodes() and removeChildNode() methods to find and remove the individual child nodes.

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#removeAll
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 582

removeChildNode(child)

Removes a single child DOM node from this widget. This method is sometimes overridden by child widgets in order to hide or control intermediate DOM nodes required by the widget.

Note that this method will NOT destroy the removed child widget, so care must be taken to ensure proper child widget destruction.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
child {Widget|Node} the DOM node to remove
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#removeChildNode
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 553

removeClass(…cls)

Removes the specified CSS class names from this HTML DOM node. Note that this method will not remove any class starting with "widget".

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
cls {string|Array} <repeatable>
the CSS class names to remove
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#removeClass
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 353

setAttrs(attrs)

Updates the widget or HTML DOM node attributes.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
attrs {Object} the widget and node attributes to set
Properties
Name Type Attributes Description
disabled {boolean} <optional>
the disabled widget flag
hidden {boolean} <optional>
the hidden widget flag
highlight {boolean} <optional>
the highlight option flag
icon {Icon|Object|string} <optional>
the icon reference to use
Overrides:
RapidContext.Widget#setAttrs
Source:
RapidContext_Widget_Button.js, line 76

setStyle(styles)

Updates the CSS styles of this HTML DOM node. This method is identical to MochiKit.Style.setStyle, but uses "this" as the first argument.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
styles {Object} an object with the styles to set
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#setStyle
Example:
widget.setStyle({ "font-size": "bold", "color": "red" });
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 294

show()

Shows this widget node if it was previously hidden. This method is equivalent to calling setAttrs({ hidden: false }). It is safe for all types of widgets, since it only removes the widgetHidden CSS class instead of setting the display style property.

Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#show
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 460

toggleClass(…cls) → {boolean}

Toggles adding and removing the specified CSS class names to and from this HTML DOM node. If all the CSS classes are already set, they will be removed. Otherwise they will be added.

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
cls {string|Array} <repeatable>
the CSS class names to remove
Returns:
{boolean} true if the CSS classes were added, or false otherwise
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#toggleClass
Source:
RapidContext_Widget.js, line 376

uid() → {string}

Returns the unique identifier for this DOM node. If a node id has already been set, that id will be returned. Otherwise a new id will be generated and assigned to the widget DOM node.

Returns:
{string} the the unique DOM node identifier
Inherited From:
RapidContext.Widget#uid

RapidContext_Widget.js, line 182
