class documentation

Class that draws text on a Cairo context.

This class supports multi-line text unlike the original Cairo text drawing methods.

Method __init__ Constructs a new instance that will draw the given text on the given Cairo context.
Method draw Draws the text in the current bounding box of the drawer.
Method draw​_at No summary
Method get​_text​_layout Calculates the layout of the current text. x and y denote the coordinates where the drawing should start. If they are both None, the current position of the context will be used.
Method text​.setter Sets the text that will be drawn.
Method text​_extents Returns the X-bearing, Y-bearing, width, height, X-advance and Y-advance of the text.
Constant BOTTOM Undocumented
Constant CENTER Undocumented
Constant LEFT Undocumented
Constant RIGHT Undocumented
Constant TOP Undocumented
Instance Variable halign Undocumented
Instance Variable valign Undocumented
Property text Returns the text to be drawn.
Method _iterlines Iterates over the label line by line and returns a tuple containing the folloing for each line: the line itself, the width of the line and the X-bearing of the line.
Method _iterlines​_wrapped Iterates over the label line by line and returns a tuple containing the folloing for each line: the line itself, the width of the line and the X-bearing of the line.
Instance Variable _text Undocumented

Inherited from AbstractCairoDrawer:

Method bbox​.setter Sets the bounding box of the drawing area where this drawer will draw.
Instance Variable context Undocumented
Property bbox The bounding box of the drawing area where this drawer will draw.
Method _mark​_point Marks the given point with a small circle on the canvas. Used primarily for debugging purposes.
Instance Variable _bbox Undocumented
def __init__(self, context, text='', halign='center', valign='center'):
Constructs a new instance that will draw the given text on the given Cairo context.
def draw(self, wrap=False):

Draws the text in the current bounding box of the drawer.

Since the class itself is an instance of AbstractCairoDrawer, it has an attribute named bbox which will be used as a bounding box.

@param wrap: whether to allow re-wrapping of the text if it does not
fit within the bounding box horizontally.
def draw_at(self, x=None, y=None, width=None, wrap=False):

Draws the text by setting up an appropriate path on the Cairo context and filling it. x and y denote the coordinates where the drawing should start. If they are both None, the current position of the context will be used.

Vertical alignment settings are not taken into account in this method as the text is not drawn within a box.

@param x: The X coordinate of the reference point where the layout should
start.
@param y: The Y coordinate of the reference point where the layout should
start.
@param width: The width of the box in which the text will be fitted. It
matters only when the text is right-aligned or centered. The text will overflow the box if any of the lines is longer than the box width and wrap is False.
@param wrap: whether to allow re-wrapping of the text if it does not
fit within the given width.
def get_text_layout(self, x=None, y=None, width=None, wrap=False):

Calculates the layout of the current text. x and y denote the coordinates where the drawing should start. If they are both None, the current position of the context will be used.

Vertical alignment settings are not taken into account in this method as the text is not drawn within a box.

@param x: The X coordinate of the reference point where the layout should
start.
@param y: The Y coordinate of the reference point where the layout should
start.
@param width: The width of the box in which the text will be fitted. It
matters only when the text is right-aligned or centered. The text will overflow the box if any of the lines is longer than the box width and wrap is False.
@param wrap: whether to allow re-wrapping of the text if it does not
fit within the given width.
@return: a list consisting of (x, y, line) tuples where x and
y refer to reference points on the Cairo canvas and line refers to the corresponding text that should be plotted there.
@text.setter
def text(self, text):

Sets the text that will be drawn.

If text is None, it will be mapped to an empty string; otherwise, it will be converted to a string.

def text_extents(self):

Returns the X-bearing, Y-bearing, width, height, X-advance and Y-advance of the text.

For multi-line text, the X-bearing and Y-bearing correspond to the first line, while the X-advance is extracted from the last line. and the Y-advance is the sum of all the Y-advances. The width and height correspond to the entire bounding box of the text.

@property
text =
Returns the text to be drawn.
def _iterlines(self):
Iterates over the label line by line and returns a tuple containing the folloing for each line: the line itself, the width of the line and the X-bearing of the line.
def _iterlines_wrapped(self, width):

Iterates over the label line by line and returns a tuple containing the folloing for each line: the line itself, the width of the line and the X-bearing of the line.

The difference between this method and _iterlines() is that this method is allowed to re-wrap the line if necessary.

@param width: The width of the box in which the text will be fitted.
Lines will be wrapped if they are wider than this width.
