Module Summary

Functions for wxBookCtrlEvent class


This class represents the events generated by book controls (wxNotebook, wxListbook, wxChoicebook, wxTreebook, wxAuiNotebook).

The PAGE_CHANGING events are sent before the current page is changed. It allows the program to examine the current page (which can be retrieved with getOldSelection/1) and to veto the page change by calling wxNotifyEvent:veto/1 if, for example, the current values in the controls of the old page are invalid.

The PAGE_CHANGED events are sent after the page has been changed and the program cannot veto it any more, it just informs it about the page change.

To summarize, if the program is interested in validating the page values before allowing the user to change it, it should process the PAGE_CHANGING event, otherwise PAGE_CHANGED is probably enough. In any case, it is probably unnecessary to process both events at once.

See: wxNotebook, wxListbook, wxChoicebook, wxTreebook, wxToolbook, wxAuiNotebook

This class is derived (and can use functions) from: wxNotifyEvent wxCommandEvent wxEvent

Data Types

wxBookCtrl() =
    #wxBookCtrl{type = wxBookCtrlEvent:wxBookCtrlEventType(),
                nSel = integer(),
                nOldSel = integer()}

wxBookCtrlEventType() =
    command_notebook_page_changed |
    command_notebook_page_changing | choicebook_page_changed |
    choicebook_page_changing | treebook_page_changed |
    treebook_page_changing | toolbook_page_changed |

getOldSelection(This) -> integer()


Returns the page that was selected before the change, wxNOT_FOUND if none was selected.

getSelection(This) -> integer()


Returns the currently selected page, or wxNOT_FOUND if none was selected.

Note: under Windows, getSelection/1 will return the same value as getOldSelection/1 when called from the EVT_BOOKCTRL_PAGE_CHANGING handler and not the page which is going to be selected.

setOldSelection(This, Page) -> ok


Page = integer()

Sets the id of the page selected before the change.

setSelection(This, Page) -> ok


Page = integer()

Sets the selection member variable.
