Defines the CSS class, a cascading style sheet like class for GUI layout.
Also defines the Bounds class, which represents margins
import inspect
class Bounds(object):
A bounding area (in pixels). Can be constructed 3 ways:
Bounds (10) : 10 pixel margin on all sides
Bounds (5, 10): 5 pixel horizontal and 10 pixel vertical margin
Bounds (5, 10, 15, 20) : eplicit left, top, right, bottom
left, right, top and bottom can be accessed by point or dictionary style
B = Bounds(10,20)
# 10
# 20
def __init__(self, *args):
if len(args) == 1:
vals = list(args) * 4
vals = list(args) * 2 + [0] * 4
self.left,, self.right, self.bottom = vals[:4]
def __getitem__(self, key):
return {
'left': self.left,
'right': self.right,
'bottom': self.bottom
def __iter__(self):
yield self.left
yield self.right
yield self.bottom
def __repr__(self):
return "< %i, %i, %i, %i >" % (self.left,, self.right, self.bottom)
class CSS(dict):
A css is a dictionary of style values keyed to a particular target.
If <target> is a class, the style applies to any instance of that class
if <target> is a string, the style applies to a control with that name
Styles can inherit content (NOT targets!) from each other. Thus:
a = CSS('a', color = 'red', margin = 1)
b = CSS('b', a, width = 128}
print b
# {'color':'red', 'margin':1, 'width':128}
Multiple inheritance is allowed:
a = CSS('a', color = 'red'}
b = CSS('b', width = 128}
c = CSS('c', a, b, margin = 1}
print c
# {'color':'red', 'margin':1, 'width':128}
Later assignments overwrite earlier ones. Explicit assignments are the 'latest' of all:
a = CSS('a', color = 'red'}
b = CSS('b', color = 'blue', width = 128}
c = CSS('c', a, b, width = 256}
print c
# {'color':'blue', 'width':256}
Styles can be used as context managers. All styles declared inside a context
manager automatically inherit from it:
with styles.CSS('outer', width = 100, height = 100) as outer:
with styles.CSS('inner', bgc = (1,0,0), size = 3) as inner:
q = styles.CSS('innermost', size = 4)
assert q['width'] == outer['width']
assert q['bgc'] == inner['bgc']
assert q['size'] == 4
Styles can be nested. The context manager syntax does this automatically, or
users can explicitly add child styles with add_child. Using the find method
to get the appropriate style for a control will walk the nested control
hierarchy from the bottom upwards, so more specific styles would be at the
bottom of the hierarchy
with styles.CSS(MockCtrl, name ='outer') as outer:
with styles.CSS(MockButton, name = 'middle') as middle:
inner = styles.CSS(MockRedButton, name = 'inner')
test = MockRedButton('mrb')
assert outer.find(test)['name'] == 'inner'
# inner style wins because it's lowest in the the nesting. this IS NOT
# based on class hierarchy among targets! If inner looked at MockButton
# (the parent class of MockRedButton) it would STILL win in this example
The context manager functionality is REUSABLE. The examples above show how
nested contexts can be use to prioritize the search order for different
styles. The other use is to activate a style for use in the creation of
with styles.CSS(StyledMockCtrl, width = 100, height = 100, expected = False) as outer:
with styles.CSS(StyledMockButton, bgc = (1,0,0), size = 3, expected = None):
deepest = styles.CSS(StyledMockRedButton, size = 4, expected = True)
with outer:
test = StyledMockRedButton('fred') # uses deepest on creation, as in earlier example
test2 = StyledMockList('barney') # uses uses outer, since its the closes match for the class
test3 = UnStyledButton('nostyle') # if the class does not derive from Styled, nothing happens
test4 = StyledMockButton('custom', style = CSS('custom', width = 11, height=91))
# explicitly passed style wins over the styles in outer.
