Module Summary

Functions for wxMDIChildFrame class

Description

An MDI child frame is a frame that can only exist inside a wxMDIClientWindow, which is itself a child of wxMDIParentFrame.

Styles

This class supports the following styles:

All of the standard wxFrame styles can be used but most of them are ignored by TDI-based MDI implementations.

Remark: Although internally an MDI child frame is a child of the MDI client window, in wxWidgets you create it as a child of wxMDIParentFrame. In fact, you can usually forget that the client window exists. MDI child frames are clipped to the area of the MDI client window, and may be iconized on the client window. You can associate a menubar with a child frame as usual, although an MDI child doesn't display its menubar under its own title bar. The MDI parent frame's menubar will be changed to reflect the currently active child frame. If there are currently no children, the parent frame's own menubar will be displayed.

Default constructor.

new(Parent, Id, Title) -> wxMDIChildFrame()

Types

Id = integer()
new(Parent, Id, Title, Options :: [Option]) -> wxMDIChildFrame()

Types

Id = integer()
Option =
    {pos, {X :: integer(), Y :: integer()}} |
    {size, {W :: integer(), H :: integer()}} |
    {style, integer()}

Constructor, creating the window.

See: create/5

destroy(This :: wxMDIChildFrame()) -> ok

Destructor.

Destroys all child windows and menu bar if present.

activate(This) -> ok

Types

Activates this MDI child frame.

See: maximize/2, restore/1

create(This, Parent, Id, Title) -> boolean()

Types

Id = integer()
create(This, Parent, Id, Title, Options :: [Option]) -> boolean()

Types

Id = integer()
Option =
    {pos, {X :: integer(), Y :: integer()}} |
    {size, {W :: integer(), H :: integer()}} |
    {style, integer()}

Used in two-step frame construction.

See new/4 for further details.

maximize(This) -> ok

Types

maximize(This, Options :: [Option]) -> ok

Types

Option = {maximize, boolean()}

Maximizes this MDI child frame.

This function doesn't do anything if IsAlwaysMaximized() (not implemented in wx) returns true.

See: activate/1, restore/1

restore(This) -> ok

Types

Restores this MDI child frame (unmaximizes).

This function doesn't do anything if IsAlwaysMaximized() (not implemented in wx) returns true.

See: activate/1, maximize/2
