Class pyglet.text.layout.TextLayout

Known Subclasses:
DocumentLabel, ScrollableTextLayout

Lay out and display documents.

This class is intended for displaying documents that do not change regularly -- any change will cost some time to lay out the complete document again and regenerate all vertex lists.

The benefit of this class is that texture state is shared between all layouts of this class. The time to draw one TextLayout may be roughly the same as the time to draw one IncrementalTextLayout; but drawing ten TextLayout objects in one batch is much faster than drawing ten incremental or scrollable text layouts.

Label and HTMLLabel provide a convenient interface to this class.

Method Details

__init__

(Constructor) __init__(self, document, width=None, height=None, multiline=False, dpi=None, batch=None, group=None)
Create a text layout.
Parameters:
document : AbstractDocument
Document to display.
width : int
Width of the layout in pixels, or None
height : int
Height of the layout in pixels, or None
multiline : bool
If False, newline and paragraph characters are ignored, and text is not word-wrapped.
dpi : float
Font resolution; defaults to 96.
batch : Batch
Optional graphics batch to add this layout to.
group : Group
Optional rendering group to parent all groups this text layout uses. Note that layouts with different rendered simultaneously in a batch.

begin_update

begin_update(self)

Indicate that a number of changes to the layout or document are about to occur.

Changes to the layout or document between calls to begin_update and end_update do not trigger any costly relayout of text. Relayout of all changes is performed when end_update is called.

Note that between the begin_update and end_update calls, values such as content_width and content_height are undefined (i.e., they may or may not be updated to reflect the latest changes).

end_update

end_update(self)

Perform pending layout changes since begin_update.

See begin_update.

draw

draw(self)

Draw this text layout.

Note that this method performs very badly if a batch was supplied to the constructor. If you add this layout to a batch, you should ideally use only the batch's draw method.

on_insert_text

on_insert_text(self, start, text)

Event handler for AbstractDocument.on_insert_text.

The event handler is bound by the text layout; there is no need for applications to interact with this method.

on_delete_text

on_delete_text(self, start, end)

Event handler for AbstractDocument.on_delete_text.

The event handler is bound by the text layout; there is no need for applications to interact with this method.

on_style_text

on_style_text(self, start, end, attributes)

Event handler for AbstractDocument.on_style_text.

The event handler is bound by the text layout; there is no need for applications to interact with this method.


Property Details

dpi

Get DPI used by this layout.

Read-only.

Type:
float

document

x

X coordinate of the layout.

See also anchor_x.

Type:
int

y

Y coordinate of the layout.

See also anchor_y.

Type:
int

width

Width of the layout.

This property has no effect if multiline is False.

Type:
int

height

Height of the layout.
Type:
int

multiline

Set if multiline layout is enabled.

If multiline is False, newline and paragraph characters are ignored and text is not word-wrapped.

Type:
bool

anchor_x

Horizontal anchor alignment.

This property determines the meaning of the x coordinate. It is one of the enumerants:

"left" (default)

The X coordinate gives the position of the left edge of the layout.

"center"

The X coordinate gives the position of the center of the layout.

"right"

The X coordinate gives the position of the right edge of the layout.

For the purposes of calculating the position resulting from this alignment, the width of the layout is taken to be width if multiline is True, otherwise content_width.

Type:
str

anchor_y

Vertical anchor alignment.

This property determines the meaning of the y coordinate. It is one of the enumerants:

"top"

The Y coordinate gives the position of the top edge of the layout.

"center"

The Y coordinate gives the position of the center of the layout.

"baseline"

The Y coordinate gives the position of the baseline of the first line of text in the layout.

"bottom" (default)

The Y coordinate gives the position of the bottom edge of the layout.

For the purposes of calculating the position resulting from this alignment, the height of the layout is taken to be the smaller of height and content_height.

See also content_valign.

Type:
str

content_valign

Vertical alignment of content within larger layout box.

This property determines how content is positioned within the layout box when content_height is less than height. It is one of the enumerants:

top (default)
Content is aligned to the top of the layout box.
center
Content is centered vertically within the layout box.
bottom
Content is aligned to the bottom of the layout box.

This property has no effect when content_height is greater than height (in which case the content is aligned to the top) or when height is None (in which case there is no vertical layout box dimension).

Type:
str

Instance Variable Details

top_group

Top-level rendering group.
Type:
Group
Value:
TextLayoutGroup()

foreground_decoration_group

Rendering group for glyph underlines.
Type:
Group
Value:
TextLayoutForegroundDecorationGroup(2)

content_width

Calculuated width of the text in the layout. This may overflow the desired width if word-wrapping failed.
Type:
int
