Constructor & Destructor Documentation

wxDCTextColourChanger::wxDCTextColourChanger ( wxDC dc)

Trivial constructor not changing anything.

This constructor is useful if you don't know beforehand if the colour needs to be changed or not. It simply creates the object which won't do anything in its destructor unless Set() is called – in which case it would reset the previous colour.

wxDCTextColourChanger::wxDCTextColourChanger ( wxDC dc,
const wxColour col 
)

Sets col on the given dc, storing the old one.

Parameters
dcThe DC where the colour must be temporary set.
colThe colour to set.
wxDCTextColourChanger::~wxDCTextColourChanger ( )

Restores the colour originally selected in the DC passed to the ctor.

Member Function Documentation

void wxDCTextColourChanger::Set ( const wxColour col)

Set the colour to use.

This method is meant to be called once only and only on the objects created with the constructor overload not taking wxColour argument and has the same effect as the other constructor, i.e. sets the colour to the given col and ensures that the old value is restored when this object is destroyed.
