Form library
Scrap library
This library takes on the management of rectangles; so one can
draw a rectangle that moves automatically with the mouse pointer, say.
In all, the following functions are available:
Note: Of these, graf_handle has earned special
importance because with its aid the ID of the physical screen
workstation can be obtained.

If gr_monumber = USER_DEF, then gr_mofaddr is a
pointer to the MFORM structure that sets the appearance of the mouse
pointer.
Note: One should ensure that outside of the working area
of one's own window, the mouse pointer takes the form of an arrow or
hourglass.
In the event that the application must change the mouse form,
set the highest bit (bit 15) of gr_monumber to 1 and OR it
with the desired mouse form index. After finishing the work, call
graf_mouse with the value 0 to set the mouse back to an arrow.
M_FORCE 0x8000
Whether modes 258260 are available, or whether the mouse form
is managed locally for each application can be inquired with appl_getinfo
(opcode 8).
 X_MRESET (1000)

graf_mouse( X_MRESET, 0L );
Resets the mouse so that it is 'on' just once, and also updates
graf_mouse's idea of the hide count.
 X_MGET (1001)

hidecount = graf_mouse( X_MGET, MFORM *mouse );
In this mode, if mouse is nonzero, then the MFORM it
points to is filledin with the shape of the last mouse set with
graf_mouse. 'hidecount' gets the number of times the mouse was hidden
using graf_mouse(M_OFF...). If this number is greater than zero, the
mouse is hidden that number of times. If it is zero, the mouse is
shown once. If it is less than zero, the mouse is 'shown' more than
once.
 X_SET_SHAPE (1100)

graf_mouse( X_SET_SHAPE+index, ANI_MOUSE *mouse_form );
Change the shape of the mouse form whose number is
index. The ANI_MOUSE structure contains up to 32 mouse shapes
to be animated in a continuous loop while that particular mouse shape
is being displayed.
If the frames portion of the ANI_MOUSE structure is one,
then no animation is performed. Otherwise, it should be the number of
frames contained in the mouse animation sequence. The delay
value is the number of 50 Hz timer ticks to pause between each frame
in the animation. The form portion of the structure only needs
to be initialized for the number of frames, so if there are only two
frames, this means that only form[0] and form[1] are used. If a NULL
pointer is passed instead of a pointer to an ANI_MOUSE structure, then
the mouse shape is restored to its default.
It does not matter if the application which sets a new shape
terminates without resetting the mouse shape, as this call allocates
memory internally to hold the new shape data.

Return value: 
An error has arisen only if the value 0 is returned.

int16_t minh, GRECT *rec, int16_t *outw, int16_t *outh)

Description: 
The call graf_multirubber displays a pair of 'rubber bands' in
the form of rectangles on the screen, whose top left corner remains
fixed and bottom right corner can be moved while the left mouse button
is held down. Similar to graf_rubberbox, but with two rectangles. The
following apply:
Parameter 
Meaning



x 
Xcoordinate, and

y 
Ycoordinate of initial corner

minw 
Minimum width of rubber band box

minh 
Minimum height of rubber band box

rec 

outw 
Width of rubber band box when releasing the mouse button

outh 
Height of rubber band box when releasing the mouse button

Note: For the reasons mentioned above, the function
should only be called with an already pressed mouse button, since it
returns when the button is released. It's interesting that the minimum
width and height parameters may also take negative values; the
rubber band may then be stretched from bottom right to top left.

Return value: 
An error has arisen only if the value 0 is returned.

Availability: 
The function is only available under N.AES.

Height of rubber band box when releasing the mouse button

Note: For the reasons mentioned above, the function
should only be called with an already pressed mouse button, since it
returns when the button is released. It's interesting that the minimum
width and height parameters may also take negative values; the
rubber band may then be stretched from bottom right to top left.
In older GEM documentation this function is also called
'graf_rubbox'!

Return value: 
An error has arisen only if the value 0 is returned.

Syntax: 
int16_t graf_slidebox ( OBJECT *gr_slptree, int16_t
gr_slparent, int16_t gr_slobject, int16_t gr_slvh );

Description: 
The call graf_slidebox serves to inquire the position of
sliders within the bounds of its parent object. The following apply:
Parameter 
Meaning



gr_slptree 
Address of object tree holding parent and child objects

gr_slparent 
Index of the parent rectangle

gr_slobject 
Index of the child rectangle to be moved (slider)

gr_slvh 
Direction of movement:
0 
= 
Move horizontally 
1 
= 
Move vertically 

Note: The function may only be called with an already
pressed mouse button, since it returns immediately when the button is
released.
It can be used also with sliders built into dialogs: Make the
slider a TOUCHEXIT object and call this function when it is clicked
on.
In Geneva the parameter gr_slvh has changed slightly.

Return value: 
The function returns the relative position of the slider,
between 0 (far left or very top) and 1000 (far right or very bottom).

The meaning of the gr_slvh parameter has changed
slightly, to provide for realtime updating of sliders:
LSB 
0 
for horizontal slider, 1 for vertical 
MSB 
0 
for oldstyle, dotted outline drag box 

1 
to describe the area to be scrolled in realtime 

2 
to initialize realtime scrolling 

3 
to process the scroll bar in real time 
To use realtime scroll bars, a program does the following:
Call graf_slidebox with gr_slvh mode 0x1XX (where
"XX" is 00 for a horizontal slider, and 01 for vertical). In
this mode, the gr_slparent parameter describes the size of the
entire area to be scrolled, and gr_slobject describes the size
of the area which is visible at one time. Both of these values can be
in any units the programmer chooses.
Call graf_slidebox with gr_slvh mode 0x2XX. In this mode,
gr_slparent and gr_slobject have the same meaning they
normally do. The return value will either be 1, if the user has
released the slider, or it will be a number >= 0 which represents
the new position of the slider. This number is based on the numbers
passed in Step 1. The call does not return until the slider has either
moved enough to change the position within the list, or the mouse
button has been released.
If the result of the last graf_slidebox call was 1, then continue on
with the rest of the program. Otherwise, perform whatever action is
necessary to redraw the list of items, starting at the returned index.
The slider position is updated automatically by Geneva; the program
must not alter it.
Call graf_slidebox with gr_slvh mode 0x3XX. In this mode,
gr_slparent and gr_slobject have the same meaning they
normally do. Go to Step 3.
Example: Process a list of 100 items, 10 of which are visible at
once
if( graf_slidebox( 0L, 100, 10, 0x101 ) >= 0 )
{
i = graf_slidebox( object_tree, parent_obj, slider_obj, 0x201 );
while( i>=0 )
{
redraw_list_starting_at(i);
i = graf_slidebox( object_tree, parent_obj, slider_obj, 0x301 );
}
