Constructors

constructor

Properties

node

node: HTMLElement

Get the DOM node owned by the widget.

Accessors

alignment

  • Get the content alignment for the box panel.

    Notes

    This is the alignment of the widgets in the layout direction.

    The alignment has no effect if the widgets can expand to fill the entire box layout.

    Returns Alignment

  • Set the content alignment for the box panel.

    Notes

    This is the alignment of the widgets in the layout direction.

    The alignment has no effect if the widgets can expand to fill the entire box layout.

    Parameters

    Returns void

dataset

  • get dataset(): DOMStringMap

direction

disposed

  • get disposed(): ISignal<this, void>
  • A signal emitted when the widget is disposed.

    Returns ISignal<this, void>

id

  • get id(): string
  • set id(value: string): void
  • Get the id of the widget's DOM node.

    Returns string

  • Set the id of the widget's DOM node.

    Parameters

    • value: string

    Returns void

isAttached

  • get isAttached(): boolean

isDisposed

  • get isDisposed(): boolean

isHidden

  • get isHidden(): boolean

isVisible

  • get isVisible(): boolean
  • Test whether the widget is visible.

    Notes

    A widget is visible when it is attached to the DOM, is not explicitly hidden, and has no explicitly hidden ancestors.

    Returns boolean

layout

  • get layout(): Layout | null
  • set layout(value: Layout | null): void
  • Get the layout for the widget.

    Notes

    The layout is single-use only. It cannot be changed after the first assignment.

    The layout is disposed automatically when the widget is disposed.

    Returns Layout | null

  • Set the layout for the widget.

    Notes

    The layout is single-use only. It cannot be changed after the first assignment.

    The layout is disposed automatically when the widget is disposed.

    Parameters

    Returns void

parent

  • get parent(): Widget | null
  • set parent(value: Widget | null): void
  • Get the parent of the widget.

    Notes

    Children are typically added to a widget by using a layout, which means user code will not normally set the parent widget directly.

    The widget will be automatically removed from its old parent.

    This is a no-op if there is no effective parent change.

    Returns Widget | null

  • Set the parent of the widget.

    Notes

    Children are typically added to a widget by using a layout, which means user code will not normally set the parent widget directly.

    The widget will be automatically removed from its old parent.

    This is a no-op if there is no effective parent change.

    Parameters

    Returns void

spacing

  • get spacing(): number
  • set spacing(value: number): void
  • Get the inter-element spacing for the box panel.

    Returns number

  • Set the inter-element spacing for the box panel.

    Parameters

    • value: number

    Returns void

title

  • The title object for the widget.

    Notes

    The title object is used by some container widgets when displaying the widget alongside some title, such as a tab panel or side bar.

    Since not all widgets will use the title, it is created on demand.

    The owner property of the title is set to this widget.

    Returns Title<Widget>

widgets

  • get widgets(): ReadonlyArray<Widget>

Methods

activate

  • activate(): void
  • Post an 'activate-request' message to the widget.

    Notes

    This is a simple convenience method for posting the message.

    Returns void

  • addClass(name: string): void
  • Add a class name to the widget's DOM node.

    Parameters

    • name: string

      The class name to add to the node.

      The class name must not contain whitespace.

    Returns void

addWidget

  • addWidget(widget: Widget): void
  • Add a widget to the end of the panel.

  • Create an iterator over the widget's children.

    Returns IIterator<Widget>

    A new iterator over the children of the widget.
