<*PRAGMA LL*>

A TSplit.T is a parent window that giving its entire screen to one child at a time. The child being displayed is called the {\it current child}. The current child can be NIL, in which case the TSplit ignores all events.

INTERFACE TSplit;

IMPORT VBT, Split;

TYPE
T <: Public;
Private <: Split.T;
Public = Private OBJECT METHODS
<* LL.sup <= VBT.mu *>
init(fickle := TRUE): T
END;

The call v.init(fickle) initialize v as an empty TSplit.

If fickle is TRUE, then the shape of v will be the shape of its current child, or a VBT's default shape if the current child is NIL. If fickle is FALSE, then in each axis the size range of v will be the intersection of the size ranges of its children (if this intersection is empty, the children's maxsizes are increased until the intersection is non-empty). The preferred size of v is the the maximum of the preferred sizes of its children, projected into v's size range. If v has no children, its shape is a VBT's default shape.

PROCEDURE SetCurrent(v: T; ch: VBT.T)
RAISES {Split.NotAChild}; <* LL.sup = VBT.mu *>

Set the current child of v to be ch and mark v for redisplay.

PROCEDURE GetCurrent(v: T): VBT.T; <* LL.sup = VBT.mu *>

Return the current child of v.

PROCEDURE Cons(ch0, ch1, ch2, ch3, ch4: VBT.T := NIL;
fickle := TRUE): T; <* LL.sup = VBT.mu *>

Create a TSplit with children ch0, ch1, ....
Cons is equivalent to

      v := NEW(T).init(fickle);
Split.AddChild(v, ch0, ch1, ch2, ch3, ch4);
IF ch0 # NIL THEN SetCurrent(v, ch0) END;
RETURN v


END TSplit.
