+ Inheritance diagram for wxPropertyGrid:

Detailed Description

wxPropertyGrid is a specialized grid for editing properties - in other words name = value pairs.

List of ready-to-use property classes include strings, numbers, flag sets, fonts, colours and many others. It is possible, for example, to categorize properties, set up a complete tree-hierarchy, add more than two columns, and set arbitrary per-property attributes.

Please note that most member functions are inherited and as such not documented on this page. This means you will probably also want to read wxPropertyGridInterface class reference.

Event Handling

To process input from a property grid control, use these event handler macros to direct input to member functions that take a wxPropertyGridEvent argument.

Events emitted by this class

The following event handler macros redirect the events to member function handlers 'func' with prototypes like:

void handlerFuncName(wxPropertyGridEvent& event)

Event macros for events emitted by this class:

  • EVT_PG_SELECTED (id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_SELECTED event, generated when a property selection has been changed, either by user action or by indirect program function. For instance, collapsing a parent property programmatically causes any selected child property to become unselected, and may therefore cause this event to be generated.
  • EVT_PG_CHANGED(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_CHANGED event, generated when property value has been changed by the user.
  • EVT_PG_CHANGING(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_CHANGING event, generated when property value is about to be changed by user. Use wxPropertyGridEvent::GetValue() to take a peek at the pending value, and wxPropertyGridEvent::Veto() to prevent change from taking place, if necessary.
  • EVT_PG_HIGHLIGHTED(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_HIGHLIGHTED event, which occurs when mouse moves over a property. Event's property is NULL if hovered area does not belong to any property.
  • EVT_PG_RIGHT_CLICK(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_RIGHT_CLICK event, which occurs when property is clicked on with right mouse button.
  • EVT_PG_DOUBLE_CLICK(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_DOUBLE_CLICK event, which occurs when property is double-clicked on with left mouse button.
  • EVT_PG_ITEM_COLLAPSED(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_ITEM_COLLAPSED event, generated when user collapses a property or category.
  • EVT_PG_ITEM_EXPANDED(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_ITEM_EXPANDED event, generated when user expands a property or category.
  • EVT_PG_LABEL_EDIT_BEGIN(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_LABEL_EDIT_BEGIN event, generated when user is about to begin editing a property label. You can veto this event to prevent the action.
  • EVT_PG_LABEL_EDIT_ENDING(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_LABEL_EDIT_ENDING event, generated when user is about to end editing of a property label. You can veto this event to prevent the action.
  • EVT_PG_COL_BEGIN_DRAG(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_COL_BEGIN_DRAG event, generated when user starts resizing a column - can be vetoed.
  • EVT_PG_COL_DRAGGING, (id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_COL_DRAGGING, event, generated when a column resize by user is in progress. This event is also generated when user double-clicks the splitter in order to recenter it.
  • EVT_PG_COL_END_DRAG(id, func):
    Respond to wxEVT_PG_COL_END_DRAG event, generated after column resize by user has finished.
Remarks
Use Freeze() and Thaw() respectively to disable and enable drawing. This will also delay sorting etc. miscellaneous calculations to the last possible moment.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

wxPropertyGrid::wxPropertyGrid ( )

Two step constructor.

Call Create() when this constructor is called to build up the wxPropertyGrid

wxPropertyGrid::wxPropertyGrid ( wxWindow parent,
wxWindowID  id = wxID_ANY,
const wxPoint pos = wxDefaultPosition,
const wxSize size = wxDefaultSize,
long  style = wxPG_DEFAULT_STYLE,
const wxString name = wxPropertyGridNameStr 
)

Constructor.

The styles to be used are styles valid for the wxWindow.

See also
wxPropertyGrid Window Styles.
virtual wxPropertyGrid::~wxPropertyGrid ( )
virtual

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

void wxPropertyGrid::AddActionTrigger ( int  action,
int  keycode,
int  modifiers = 0 
)

Adds given key combination to trigger given action.

Here is a sample code to make Enter key press move focus to the next property.

Parameters
actionWhich action to trigger. See wxPropertyGrid Action Identifiers.
keycodeWhich keycode triggers the action.
modifiersWhich key event modifiers, in addition to keycode, are needed to trigger the action.
bool wxPropertyGrid::AddToSelection ( wxPGPropArg  id)

Adds given property into selection.

If wxPG_EX_MULTIPLE_SELECTION extra style is not used, then this has same effect as calling SelectProperty().

Remarks
Multiple selection is not supported for categories. This means that if you have properties selected, you cannot add category to selection, and also if you have category selected, you cannot add other properties to selection. This member function will fail silently in these cases, even returning true.
static void wxPropertyGrid::AutoGetTranslation ( bool  enable)
static

This static function enables or disables automatic use of wxGetTranslation() for following strings: wxEnumProperty list labels, wxFlagsProperty child property labels.

Default is false.

void wxPropertyGrid::BeginLabelEdit ( unsigned int  colIndex = 0)

Creates label editor wxTextCtrl for given column, for property that is currently selected.

When multiple selection is enabled, this applies to whatever property GetSelection() returns.

Parameters
colIndexWhich column's label to edit. Note that you should not use value 1, which is reserved for property value column.
See also
EndLabelEdit(), MakeColumnEditable()
void wxPropertyGrid::CenterSplitter ( bool  enableAutoResizing = false)

Centers the splitter.

Parameters
enableAutoResizingIf true, automatic column resizing is enabled (only applicable if window style wxPG_SPLITTER_AUTO_CENTER is used).
bool wxPropertyGrid::ChangePropertyValue ( wxPGPropArg  id,
wxVariant  newValue 
)

Changes value of a property, as if from an editor.

Use this instead of SetPropertyValue() if you need the value to run through validation process, and also send the property change event.

Returns
Returns true if value was successfully changed.
virtual void wxPropertyGrid::Clear ( )
virtual

Deletes all properties.

Implements wxPropertyGridInterface.

void wxPropertyGrid::ClearActionTriggers ( int  action)

Clears action triggers for given action.

Parameters
actionWhich action to trigger. wxPropertyGrid Action Identifiers.
virtual bool wxPropertyGrid::CommitChangesFromEditor ( wxUint32  flags = 0)
virtual

Forces updating the value of property from the editor control.

Note that wxEVT_PG_CHANGING and wxEVT_PG_CHANGED are dispatched using ProcessEvent, meaning your event handlers will be called immediately.

Returns
Returns true if anything was changed.
bool wxPropertyGrid::Create ( wxWindow parent,
wxWindowID  id = wxID_ANY,
const wxPoint pos = wxDefaultPosition,
const wxSize size = wxDefaultSize,
long  style = wxPG_DEFAULT_STYLE,
const wxString name = wxPropertyGridNameStr 
)

Two step creation.

Whenever the control is created without any parameters, use Create to actually create it. Don't access the control's public methods before this is called

See also
wxPropertyGrid Window Styles.
void wxPropertyGrid::DedicateKey ( int  keycode)

Dedicates a specific keycode to wxPropertyGrid.

This means that such key presses will not be redirected to editor controls.

Using this function allows, for example, navigation between properties using arrow keys even when the focus is in the editor control.

virtual void wxPropertyGrid::DoHidePropertyError ( wxPGProperty property)
virtual

Override in derived class to hide an error displayed by DoShowPropertyError().

See also
DoShowPropertyError()
virtual bool wxPropertyGrid::DoOnValidationFailure ( wxPGProperty property,
wxVariant invalidValue 
)
virtual

Override to customize property validation failure behaviour.

Parameters
invalidValueValue which failed in validation.
Returns
Return true if user is allowed to change to another property even if current has invalid value.
virtual void wxPropertyGrid::DoOnValidationFailureReset ( wxPGProperty property)
virtual

Override to customize resetting of property validation failure status.

Remarks
Property is guaranteed to have flag wxPG_PROP_INVALID_VALUE set.
static wxPGEditor* wxPropertyGrid::DoRegisterEditorClass ( wxPGEditor editor,
const wxString name,
bool  noDefCheck = false 
)
static

Registers a new editor class.

Returns
Returns pointer to the editor class instance that should be used.
virtual void wxPropertyGrid::DoShowPropertyError ( wxPGProperty property,
const wxString msg 
)
virtual

Override in derived class to display error messages in custom manner (these message usually only result from validation failure).

Remarks
If you implement this, then you also need to implement DoHidePropertyError() - possibly to do nothing, if error does not need hiding (e.g. it was logged or shown in a message box).
See also
DoHidePropertyError()
void wxPropertyGrid::DrawItemAndValueRelated ( wxPGProperty p)

Draws item, children, and consecutive parents as long as category is not met.

void wxPropertyGrid::EditorsValueWasModified ( )

Call when editor widget's contents is modified.

For example, this is called when changes text in wxTextCtrl (used in wxStringProperty and wxIntProperty).

Remarks
This function should only be called by custom properties.
See also
wxPGProperty::OnEvent()
void wxPropertyGrid::EditorsValueWasNotModified ( )

Reverse of EditorsValueWasModified().

Remarks
This function should only be called by custom properties.
bool wxPropertyGrid::EnableCategories ( bool  enable)

Enables or disables (shows/hides) categories according to parameter enable.

Remarks
This functions deselects selected property, if any. Validation failure option wxPG_VFB_STAY_IN_PROPERTY is not respected, i.e. selection is cleared even if editor had invalid value.
void wxPropertyGrid::EndLabelEdit ( bool  commit = true)

Destroys label editor wxTextCtrl, if any.

Parameters
commitUse true (default) to store edited label text in property cell data.
See also
BeginLabelEdit(), MakeColumnEditable()
bool wxPropertyGrid::EnsureVisible ( wxPGPropArg  id)

Scrolls and/or expands items to ensure that the given item is visible.

Returns
Returns true if something was actually done.
wxSize wxPropertyGrid::FitColumns ( )

Reduces column sizes to minimum possible, while still retaining fully visible grid contents (labels, images).

Returns
Minimum size for the grid to still display everything.
Remarks
Does not work well with wxPG_SPLITTER_AUTO_CENTER window style.
    This function only works properly if grid size prior to call was
    already fairly large.

    Note that you can also get calculated column widths by calling
    GetState->GetColumnWidth() immediately after this function
    returns.

void wxPropertyGrid::OnTLPChanging ( wxWindow newTLP)

It is recommended that you call this function any time your code causes wxPropertyGrid's top-level parent to change.

wxPropertyGrid's OnIdle() handler should be able to detect most changes, but it is not perfect.

Parameters
newTLPNew top-level parent that is about to be set. Old top-level parent window should still exist as the current one.
Remarks
This function is automatically called from wxPropertyGrid:: Reparent() and wxPropertyGridManager::Reparent(). You only need to use it if you reparent wxPropertyGrid indirectly.
void wxPropertyGrid::RefreshEditor ( )

Refreshes any active editor control.

virtual void wxPropertyGrid::RefreshProperty ( wxPGProperty p)
virtual

Redraws given property.

Implements wxPropertyGridInterface.

static wxPGEditor* wxPropertyGrid::RegisterEditorClass ( wxPGEditor editor,
bool  noDefCheck = false 
)
static

Forwards to DoRegisterEditorClass with empty name.

bool wxPropertyGrid::RemoveFromSelection ( wxPGPropArg  id)

Removes given property from selection.

If property is not selected, an assertion failure will occur.

void wxPropertyGrid::ResetColours ( )

Resets all colours to the original system values.

void wxPropertyGrid::ResetColumnSizes ( bool  enableAutoResizing = false)

Resets column sizes and splitter positions, based on proportions.

Parameters
enableAutoResizingIf true, automatic column resizing is enabled (only applicapple if window style wxPG_SPLITTER_AUTO_CENTER is used).
See also
wxPropertyGridInterface::SetColumnProportion()
bool wxPropertyGrid::SelectProperty ( wxPGPropArg  id,
bool  focus = false 
)

Selects a property.

Editor widget is automatically created, but not focused unless focus is true.

Parameters
idProperty to select (name or pointer).
focusIf true, move keyboard focus to the created editor right away.
Returns
returns true if selection finished successfully. Usually only fails if current value in editor is not valid.
Remarks
In wxPropertyGrid 1.4, this member function used to generate wxEVT_PG_SELECTED. In wxWidgets 2.9 and later, it no longer does that.
This clears any previous selection.

wxPropertyGridInterface::ClearSelection()
void wxPropertyGrid::SetCaptionBackgroundColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets category caption background colour.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetCaptionTextColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets category caption text colour.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetCellBackgroundColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets default cell background colour - applies to property cells.

Note that appearance of editor widgets may not be affected.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetCellDisabledTextColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets cell text colour for disabled properties.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetCellTextColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets default cell text colour - applies to property name and value text.

Note that appearance of editor widgets may not be affected.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetColumnCount ( int  colCount)

Set number of columns (2 or more).

void wxPropertyGrid::SetCurrentCategory ( wxPGPropArg  id)

Sets the 'current' category - Append will add non-category properties under it.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetEmptySpaceColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets colour of empty space below properties.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetLineColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets selection background colour - applies to selected property name background.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetSelectionTextColour ( const wxColour col)

Sets selection foreground colour - applies to selected property name text.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetSortFunction ( wxPGSortCallback  sortFunction)

Sets the property sorting function.

Parameters
sortFunctionThe sorting function to be used. It should return a value greater than 0 if position of p1 is after p2. So, for instance, when comparing property names, you can use following implementation:
int MyPropertySortFunction(wxPropertyGrid* propGrid,
{
return p1->GetBaseName().compare( p2->GetBaseName() );
}
Remarks
Default property sort function sorts properties by their labels (case-insensitively).

GetSortFunction, wxPropertyGridInterface::Sort, wxPropertyGridInterface::SortChildren
void wxPropertyGrid::SetSplitterLeft ( bool  privateChildrenToo = false)

Moves splitter as left as possible, while still allowing all labels to be shown in full.

Parameters
privateChildrenTooIf false, will still allow private children to be cropped.
void wxPropertyGrid::SetSplitterPosition ( int  newxpos,
int  col = 0 
)

Sets x coordinate of the splitter.

Remarks
Splitter position cannot exceed grid size, and therefore setting it during form creation may fail as initial grid size is often smaller than desired splitter position, especially when sizers are being used.
void wxPropertyGrid::SetUnspecifiedValueAppearance ( const wxPGCell cell)

Sets appearance of value cells representing an unspecified property value.

Default appearance is blank.

Remarks
If you set the unspecified value to have any textual representation, then that will override "InlineHelp" attribute.
See also
wxPGProperty::SetValueToUnspecified(), wxPGProperty::IsValueUnspecified()
void wxPropertyGrid::SetupTextCtrlValue ( const wxString text)

Must be called in wxPGEditor::CreateControls() if primary editor window is wxTextCtrl, just before textctrl is created.

Parameters
textInitial text value of created wxTextCtrl.
void wxPropertyGrid::SetVerticalSpacing ( int  vspacing)

Sets vertical spacing.

Can be 1, 2, or 3 - a value relative to font height. Value of 2 should be default on most platforms.

void wxPropertyGrid::SetVirtualWidth ( int  width)

Set virtual width for this particular page.

Width -1 indicates that the virtual width should be disabled.

void wxPropertyGrid::ShowPropertyError ( wxPGPropArg  id,
const wxString msg 
)

Shows an brief error message that is related to a property.

bool wxPropertyGrid::UnfocusEditor ( )

Unfocuses or closes editor if one was open, but does not deselect property.

void wxPropertyGrid::ValueChangeInEvent ( wxVariant  variant)

Call this from wxPGProperty::OnEvent() to cause property value to be changed after the function returns (with true as return value).

ValueChangeInEvent() must be used if you wish the application to be able to use wxEVT_PG_CHANGING to potentially veto the given value.

bool wxPropertyGrid::WasValueChangedInEvent ( ) const

You can use this member function, for instance, to detect in wxPGProperty::OnEvent() if wxPGProperty::SetValueInEvent() was already called in wxPGEditor::OnEvent().

It really only detects if was value was changed using wxPGProperty::SetValueInEvent(), which is usually used when a 'picker' dialog is displayed. If value was written by "normal means" in wxPGProperty::StringToValue() or IntToValue(), then this function will return false (on the other hand, wxPGProperty::OnEvent() is not even called in those cases).
