.TH Tk_GetJustifyFromObj 3 8.1 Tk "Tk Library Procedures"
Tk_GetJustifyFromObj, Tk_GetJustify, Tk_NameOfJustify \- translate between strings and justification styles
\fB#include <tk.h>\fR
\fBTk_GetJustifyFromObj(\fIinterp, objPtr, justifyPtr\fB)\fR
\fBTk_GetJustify(\fIinterp, string, justifyPtr\fB)\fR
const char *
.AS "Tk_Justify" *justifyPtr
.AP Tcl_Interp *interp in
Interpreter to use for error reporting, or NULL.
.AP Tcl_Obj *objPtr in/out
String value contains name of justification style \- one of
.QW \fBleft\fR ,
.QW \fBright\fR ,
.QW \fBcenter\fR
\- or a unique abbreviation of one.
The internal rep will be modified to cache corresponding justify value.
.AP "const char" *string in
Same as \fIobjPtr\fR except description of justification style is passed as
a string.
.AP int *justifyPtr out
Pointer to location in which to store justify value corresponding to
\fIobjPtr\fR or \fIstring\fR.
.AP Tk_Justify justify in
Justification style (one of the values listed below).
\fBTk_GetJustifyFromObj\fR places in \fI*justifyPtr\fR the justify value
corresponding to \fIobjPtr\fR's value.
This value will be one of the following:
Means that the text on each line should start at the left edge of
the line; as a result, the right edges of lines may be ragged.
Means that the text on each line should end at the right edge of
the line; as a result, the left edges of lines may be ragged.
Means that the text on each line should be centered; as a result,
both the left and right edges of lines may be ragged.
Under normal circumstances the return value is \fBTCL_OK\fR and
\fIinterp\fR is unused.
If \fIobjPtr\fR does not contain a valid justification style
or an abbreviation of one of these names, \fBTCL_ERROR\fR is returned,
\fI*justifyPtr\fR is unmodified, and an error message is
stored in \fIinterp\fR's result if \fIinterp\fR is not NULL.
\fBTk_GetJustifyFromObj\fR caches information about the return
value in \fIobjPtr\fR, which speeds up future calls to
\fBTk_GetJustifyFromObj\fR with the same \fIobjPtr\fR.
\fBTk_GetJustify\fR is identical to \fBTk_GetJustifyFromObj\fR except
that the description of the justification is specified with a string instead
of an object. This prevents \fBTk_GetJustify\fR from caching the
return value, so \fBTk_GetJustify\fR is less efficient than
\fBTk_NameOfJustify\fR is the logical inverse of \fBTk_GetJustify\fR.
Given a justify value it returns a statically-allocated string
corresponding to \fIjustify\fR.
If \fIjustify\fR is not a legal justify value, then
.QW "unknown justification style"
is returned.
