SD-CALCULATE-TEXT-SIZE  [function]

(sd-calculate-text-size text :width width
                             :multiline-edit-p multiline-edit-p)
Description:
Returns the size needed to completely display text. Lines will be automatically broken between words if a word would extend past the given width.

Parameters:
text {STRING} - Text to be analyzed.
:width {NUMBER} - If given this parameter defines the maximum available width in pixels. If this parameter is omitted the lines are only broken at line ending characters.
:multiline-edit-p {BOOLEAN [nil]]} - Text size depends on the font used to render a control's contents. The font applied to editable multiline text controls may differ from the font used for all other UICT controls. Thus a caller of sd-calculate-text-size needs to provide this information through this parameter.

Return Value:
plist - Width and height in pixels needed to fit the text.

Example:
(let ((sz (sd-calculate-text-size (format nil "Text of two lines") :width 50)))
  (sd-set-control-geometry "MY-CONTROL" :height (getf sz :height)))

SD-DUMP-CONTROL-TREE  [function]

(sd-dump-control-tree :filename     filename
                      :rootControl  root-control)
Description:
Prints the parent - child hierarchy of a control tree starting at rootControl to a file.
The short name of the control is displayed in angled brackets adjacent to the full name of the control where a short name is present.

Parameters:
:filename {STRING} - The filename to write the tree to
:rootControl {STRING} - Name of a parent control (dialog shell or (grid) area). If this is not specified then all currently existing dialogs will be detailed in the output.

Return Value:
t - success
nil - failure

Example:
(sd-dump-control-tree :filename "c:/temp/tree.out" :rootControl "MACHINING_SETTINGS-DS")

 => 

  MACHINING_SETTINGS-DS

SD-GET-DEFAULT-CONTROL-HEIGHT  [function]

(sd-get-default-control-height)
Description:
Returns default control height in pixels.
Note: Don't apply the return value directly to a grid control whose parent grid area defines a grid that is not equal to nx1 pixel(s). The value n is a number equal or greater 1.

Return Value:
number - The current default control height.

Example:
(sd-get-default-control-height)
 => 21

SD-GET-DEFAULT-DIALOG-CLIENT-AREA-WIDTH  [function]

(sd-get-default-dialog-client-area-width)
Description:
Returns the default width in pixels of the client area of a dialog shell created by means of sd-defdialog.
Note: Don't apply the return value directly to a grid control whose parent grid area defines a grid that is not equal to nx1 pixel(s). The value n is a number equal or greater 1.

Return Value:
number - Width of client area.

Example:
(sd-get-default-dialog-client-area-width)
 => 145

SD-GET-DEFAULT-GRID-SIZE  [function]

(sd-get-default-grid-size)
Description:
Returns a 2D vector of the default grid size to be used as cell size when creating a grid area.
See sd-append-grid-area, sd-create-grid-area and :cellSize for more information.

Return Value:
2D vector - The default cell size of a grid area.

Example:
(sd-get-default-grid-size)
 => 11.0,11.0
