Overview

Description

The means by which to create and manage frames or windows. While there may be more than one window at a time, only one window will receive input.

Usage

require "curses"

Curses.init_screen

my_str = "LOOK! PONIES!"

height, width = 12, my_str.length + 10
top, left = (Curses.lines - height) / 2, (Curses.cols - width) / 2
bwin = Curses::Window.new(height, width, top, left)
bwin.box("\\", "/")
bwin.refresh

win = bwin.subwin(height - 4, width - 4, top + 2, left + 2)
win.setpos(2, 3)
win.addstr(my_str)
# or even
win << "\nOH REALLY?"
win << "\nYES!! " + my_str
win.refresh
win.getch
win.close

Constructor Details

#new(height, width, top, left) ⇒ Object

Construct a new Curses::Window with constraints of height lines, width columns, begin at top line, and begin left most column.

A new window using full screen is called as Curses::Window.new(0,0,0,0)

#idlok(bool) ⇒ Object

If bool is true curses considers using the hardware insert/delete line feature of terminals so equipped.

If bool is false, disables use of line insertion and deletion. This option should be enabled only if the application needs insert/delete line, for example, for a screen editor.

It is disabled by default because insert/delete line tends to be visually annoying when used in applications where it is not really needed. If insert/delete line cannot be used, curses redraws the changed portions of all lines.

#keypad(bool) ⇒ Object

Enables the keypad of the user's terminal.

If enabled (bool is true), the user can press a function key (such as an arrow key) and wgetch returns a single value representing the function key, as in KEY_LEFT. If disabled (bool is false), curses does not treat function keys specially and the program has to interpret the escape sequences itself. If the keypad in the terminal can be turned on (made to transmit) and off (made to work locally), turning on this option causes the terminal keypad to be turned on when Curses::Window.getch is called.

The default value for keypad is false.

#scrollok(bool) ⇒ Object

Controls what happens when the cursor of a window is moved off the edge of the window or scrolling region, either as a result of a newline action on the bottom line, or typing the last character of the last line.

If disabled, (bool is false), the cursor is left on the bottom line.

If enabled, (bool is true), the window is scrolled up one line (Note that to get the physical scrolling effect on the terminal, it is also necessary to call Curses::Window.idlok)

Set a software scrolling region in a window. top and bottom are lines numbers of the margin.

If this option and Curses::Window.scrollok are enabled, an attempt to move off the bottom margin line causes all lines in the scrolling region to scroll one line in the direction of the first line. Only the text of the window is scrolled.

  • If delay is positive, then read blocks for delay milliseconds, and returns ERR if there is still no input.
