Class Description

An NSSliderCell controls the behaviour and appearance of an associated NSSlider, or a single slider in an NSMatrix. Tick marks are defined in the official standard, but are not implemented in GNUstep.

An NSSliderCell can be customized through its set... methods. If these do not provide enough customization, a subclass can be created, which overrides any of the follwing methods: knobRectFlipped:, drawBarInside:flipped:, drawKnob:, or prefersTrackingUntilMouseUp.

NSSliderCell : NSActionCell

Declared in:
AppKit/NSSliderCell.h
Conforms to:
NSCoding
Availability: OpenStep

Description forthcoming.

Instance Variables

Method summary

prefersTrackingUntilMouseUp 

+ (BOOL) prefersTrackingUntilMouseUp;
Availability: OpenStep

The default implementation returns YES, so that the slider continues to track the user's movement even if the cursor leaves the slider's track.

Do not call this method directly. Override it in subclasses where the tracking behaviour needs to be different.


allowsTickMarkValuesOnly 

- (BOOL) allowsTickMarkValuesOnly;
Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

altIncrementValue 

- (double) altIncrementValue;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns the value by which the slider is incremented when the user holds down the ALT key.

See Also: -setAltIncrementValue:


closestTickMarkValueToValue: 

- (double) closestTickMarkValueToValue: (double)aValue;
Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

drawBarInside: flipped: 

- (void) drawBarInside: (NSRect)rect flipped: (BOOL)flipped;
Availability: OpenStep

Draws the slider's track, not including the bezel, in aRect flipped indicates whether the control view has a flipped coordinate system.

Do not call this method directly, it is provided for subclassing only.


drawKnob 

- (void) drawKnob;
Availability: OpenStep

Calculates the rect in which to draw the knob, then calls drawKnob: Before calling this method, a lockFocus message must be sent to the cell's control view.

When subclassing NSSliderCell, do not override this method. Override drawKnob: instead.

See Also: -drawKnob:


drawKnob: 

- (void) drawKnob: (NSRect)knobRect;
Availability: OpenStep

Draws the knob in knobRect. Before calling this method, a lockFocus message must be sent to the cell's control view.

Do not call this method directly. It is included for subclassing only.

See Also: -drawKnob


indexOfTickMarkAtPoint: 

- (int) indexOfTickMarkAtPoint: (NSPoint)point;
Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

isVertical 

- (int) isVertical;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns whether or not the slider is vertical. If, for some reason, this cannot be determined, for such reasons as the slider is not yet displayed, this method returns -1. Generally, a slider is considered vertical if its height is greater than its width.

knobRectFlipped: 

- (NSRect) knobRectFlipped: (BOOL)flipped;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns the rect in which to draw the knob, based on the coordinate system of the NSSlider or NSMatrix this NSSliderCell is associated with. flipped indicates whether or not that coordinate system is flipped, which can be determined by sending the isFlipped message to the associated NSSlider or NSMatrix.

Do not call this method directly. It is included for subclassing only.


knobThickness 

- (float) knobThickness;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns the thickness of the slider's knob. This value is in pixels, and is the size of the knob along the slider's track.

See Also: -setKnobThickness:


maxValue 

- (double) maxValue;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns the maximum value that the slider represents.

See Also: -setMaxValue:


minValue 

- (double) minValue;
Availability: OpenStep

Returns the minimum value that the slider represents.

See Also: -setMinValue:


numberOfTickMarks 

- (int) numberOfTickMarks;
Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

rectOfTickMarkAtIndex: 

- (NSRect) rectOfTickMarkAtIndex: (int)index;
Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

Availability: MacOS-X 10.0.0

Description forthcoming.

setAltIncrementValue: 

- (void) setAltIncrementValue: (double)increment;
Availability: OpenStep

Sets the value by which the slider will be be incremented when with the ALT key down to increment.

See Also: -altIncrementValue


setKnobThickness: 

- (void) setKnobThickness: (float)thickness;
Availability: OpenStep

Sets the thickness of the knob to thickness, in pixels. This value sets the amount of space which the knob takes up in the slider's track.

See Also: -knobThickness


setMaxValue: 

- (void) setMaxValue: (double)aDouble;
Availability: OpenStep

Sets the maximum value that the sliders represents to maxValue.
