Designer CDEFs

I was hunting around the office for software goodies a while back when I came across Prototyper™. I stuck the disk in to see what it was and was pleasantly surprised. Those hours spent getting the interface just right seemed over. Here was an environment where I could draw my windows, set up my menus and controls, and then let it generate the code for the interface.

Prototyper™ wasn’t everything I wanted it to be, though. For example, it would generate code for things I didn’t need. But it served my purpose of getting an interface/shell running quickly. (I hear version 2.0 is a lot better, but they haven’t sent MacTutor an upgrade yet.) Anyway, I decided to test Prototyper™ out on graphic research question--Yahtzee (relaxation is important to mental health).

Well, after a bit, I had it up and running. I took it home and stuck it in my Mac for my recently married bride to look at. She took the mouse and started playing the game. Not as skilled in the mouse as I, whenever she went to click the checkbox beside each die to re-roll, she kept on missing or resetting it.

She asked me why she couldn’t just click on the dice themselves instead of those little, tiny boxes. I was about to say that they weren’t controls when I thought, “Why not? The user is always right.” And so I went on thinking about the problem. CDEFs sounded like a lot of work, but they weren’t for what I wanted. I just wanted a variation of the checkboxes. I decided just to alter the drawing routine of my checkboxes so that they just put a rounded rectangle around the die picture when selected. I found that this was quite easy to do and wrote up a small demonstration.

Figure 1. Designer CDEF

The Demo

The demo puts up five altered buttons (figure 1). The one in the middle is an altered checkbox made to look like a light switch. It is used to deactivate the controls on the left or right side. There are three radio buttons on the left which take on the appearance of a traffic light. The last button on the right is an altered button that cycles through the faces on a die (pictures taken from my Yahtzee application).

The CDEF

A CDEF is called through a function of the form:

{1}

function myCDEFProc(varCode : integer;
 theControl : ControlHandle;
 message : integer;
 param : longint) : longint;

It returns a longint telling what part of the control was pressed or zero if not pressed. The parameter varCode contains the variation code of the control. It lets you write one CDEF for a variety of controls. I chose though to use the RefCon field of the control, theControl, to switch between routines. The message parameter tells the CDEF function what it needs to do. The last parameter, param, varies in meaning depending on message.

The unit that held my designer CDEF is called “myCDEF”. A CDEF is supposed to handle a lot of tasks. It must take care of drawing the control according to it’s value and hilighting, as well as determining if the control was actually pressed. Therefore the main routine of our CDEF function is one where we check the message parameter that was passed, and do one of three routines: drawing, testing for a hit, and calculating the region. Other routines such as initializing or dragging the indicator are either done for us or not needed.

calcRgns

One message our altered CDEF needs to handle is calculating the region of the control. Param for this message is interpreted as a handle to a region. This is quite simple to do if your control is rectangular, you just make a call to RectRgn passing the region handle and the control’s rectangle. To be honest, a rounded button is not really a strict rectangle, but the corners are generally too small to really matter.

testCntl

The next message we need to handle is whether or not the user pressed the mouse button while in our control. We first check to see if our control is active and then whether or not it was in the indicator (we have none). Finally we call PtinRect on param, typecasted now to be a point, to see if we are actually in the control.

If we are in the control’s rectangle, we switch on contrlRfCon to see which type of control was pressed. Then we might want to do some further testing to see what part of the control was pressed, such as the page up or page down regions. Our CDEF has only one region so we send back the message inButton, if it is an altered button, or inCheckbox, if it was an altered checkbox or radio button.

drawCntl

I saved the largest routine for last. When we respond to a drawCntl message, we must draw the control with the appropriate value and hilighting. When we come in, we first check to see if the control is visible (no need to draw something that is invisible). Then we switch off the contrlRfCon field to handle each control type separately.

The Button

A normal button only shows it’s state when pressed, i.e. hilighted. Then is goes back to normal. In my demo, I alter the button to not draw the title and draw a dark or light border around the control depending on whether it was hilighted or not. Then I dim the control if it is deactivated.

You may ask yourself, where are the faces of the die? They are not handled by the CDEF. I did this for two reasons. The first was to make a semi-generic control that put up a dark outline when pressed and a lighter one when not. The second reason was to show the effects of the picture when the control is deactivated.

The Checkbox

This simple drawing routine puts up the control’s title and the On/Off title, in my case Left/Right. I might want to mention a nice routine, TextBox. If TextEdit is initialized, this routine saves the hastle of left/center/right justifying by passing it the title, the rectangle the title is to be drawn in, and the justification (teJustLeft, teJustCenter, teJustRight). Next, I see if the checkbox is on or off and draw the switch in that position with a thick pen or thin depending whether or not it is hilighted.

The Radio Controls

Although the radio controls are one type of control, each is drawn in a slightly different way. I first put up the title and then switch on contrlRfCon again to draw the traffic light box and set up the shade of the light. Then I draw the light according to the shade or override it with white if the control is not set. Then I dim the control if inactive.

You will notice that there is not a hilighted state, other than inactive. You do not need to put one in if you do not feel it is necessary. For that matter, there is no reason why you need to deactivate your control by dimming it. You could dim just part, dim it with a different pattern, or even draw something entirely different. Just remember not to go overboard and try to stick to the standard interface (I might have drawn a thicker circle). But if it seems natural to draw it in a nonstandard way, go ahead; that is after all the purpose to this article and all those little hooks.

Attaching Your Routine

The code to override the standard definition with yours is quite simple. Make sure your window is invisible to start off with so that you can attach your drawing routine before QuickDraw draws something. Then follow the example:

{2}

MyWindow := GetNewWindow(WindowID, NIL, Pointer(-1);
CDEFHandle := NewHandle(0); {Get temporary control handle}
CDEFHandle := Ptr(@myCDEFProc); {Point it to our routine}
CtrlHdl := GetNewControl(ButtonID, MyWindow);
HLock(Handle(CtrlHdl));
CtrlHdl^^.contrlDefProc := CDEFHandle; {Set to our proc}
HUnLock(Handle(CtrlHdl));
Show(MyWindow); {make it visible}
SelectWindow(MyWindow); {bring to front}
SetPort(MyWindow); {set the port to our window}

Further Notes

The die pictures are done by changing the min/max of the button to 0/5. When the button is pressed, the value is set accordingly, and the button’s rectangle is invalidated. Then during the update event, the appropriate picture is retrieved according to the button’s value and drawn. Then the controls are drawn, dimming the die face if inactive.

There are a couple notes of warning that you should be aware of. The first is that you must call DisposeWindow to dispose of your controls. Don’t just quit, or you’ll crash. The second has to do with debugging.

I worked this out in Lightspeed Pascal 2.0. Now I usually like to put a few writeln statements to the text window while developing. And I did so in my CDEF to trace it being called. Nothing appeared in my window. My tracing showed that I was indeed going where I should be with all the right values. What was wrong? Well it was those debugging statements. I figured that the writeln statements were setting the port to the text window and not resetting the port. Therefore my control drawing routines were being directed to the wrong port.

That’s about it. Good luck!
