brown.core.layout_controller

classes

An abstract layout controller for working with Flowable layouts.

__init__ (pos, page, flowable, local_x) permalink view source

overriden from GraphicObject

arguments:

pos (Point): The position of this controller relative to its page.

page (Page): The page this controller appears on. This is used as the object's parent.

flowable (Flowable): The flowable this controller belongs in. Note that this is not the object's parent.

local_x (Unit): The position of this controller within the Flowables local space.

class attributes

_is_automatic: bool Whether or not this controller class is automatically created by its Flowable. permalink view source

properties

page: Page The page this controller appears on. permalink view source

This is identical to self.parent. For readability, it is encouraged to refer to the parent through this property.

read-only.

flowable: Flowable The parent flowable this controller is bound to. permalink view source

overriden from GraphicObject

read-only.

local_x: Unit The x position in self.flowables local space. permalink view source

inherited properties

interfaces: set(GraphicObjectInterface) The interfaces for this object permalink view source

Interface objects are created upon calling GraphicObject.render()

Typically each GraphicObject will have one interface for each flowable line it appears in. Objects which fit completely in one visual line will typically have exactly one interface.

If this is an empty set, the object has not been rendered yet with the render() method.

read-only.

pos: Point The position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

x: Unit The x position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

y: Unit The x position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

length: Unit The breakable length of the object. permalink view source

This is used to determine how and where rendering cuts should be made.

read-only.

inherited from GraphicObject

pen: Pen The pen to draw outlines with permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

brush: Brush The brush to draw outlines with permalink view source

As a convenience, this may be set with a hex color string for a solid color brush of that color. For brushes using alpha channels and non-solid-color fill patterns, a fully initialized brush must be passed to this.

inherited from GraphicObject

parent: GraphicObject The parent object. permalink view source

If this is set to None, it defaults to the first page of the document.

inherited from GraphicObject

children: set(GraphicObject) All objects who have self as their parent. permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

descendants: iter[GraphicObject] All of the objects in the children subtree. permalink view source

This recursively searches all of the object's children (and their children, etc.) and provides an iterator over them.

The current implementation performs a simple recursive DFS over the tree, and has the potential to be rather slow.

read-only.

inherited from GraphicObject

ancestors: iter[GraphicObject] All ancestors of this object. permalink view source

Follows the chain of parents until a document page is reached. The iterable will not include the document Page.

The order begins with self.parent and traverses upward in the tree.

read-only.

inherited from GraphicObject

page_index: The index of the page this object appears on. permalink view source

>>> from brown.core import brown; brown.setup()
>>> some_object = GraphicObject((Mm(20), Mm(50)),
...                             parent=brown.document.pages[5])
>>> some_object.page_index
5
>>> some_object in brown.document.pages[5].descendants
True

read-only.

inherited class methods

map_between_items (source, destination) permalink view source

Find a GraphicObject's position relative to another GraphicObject

arguments:

source (GraphicObject): The object to map from

destination (GraphicObject): The object to map to

returns:

Point: The canvas position of destination relative to source

inherited methods

descendants_of_class_or_subclass (graphic_object_class) permalink view source

Yield all child descendants with a given class or its subclasses.

Args: graphic_object_class (type): The type to search for. This should be a subclass of GraphicObject.

Yields: GraphicObject

inherited from GraphicObject

descendants_of_exact_class (graphic_object_class) permalink view source

Yield all child descendants with a given class.

Args: graphic_object_class (type): The type to search for. This should be a subclass of GraphicObject.

Yields: GraphicObject

inherited from GraphicObject

first_ancestor_of_class_or_subclass (graphic_object_class) permalink view source

Get the closest ancestor with a class or its subclasses.

arguments:

graphic_object_class (type): The type to search for. This should be a subclass of GraphicObject.

returns:

GraphicObject or None

If none can be found, returns None.

inherited from GraphicObject

first_ancestor_of_exact_class (graphic_object_class) permalink view source

Get the closest ancestor with a class.

arguments:

graphic_object_class (type or str): The type to search for. This should be a subclass of GraphicObject. A str of a class name may also be used.

returns:

GraphicObject or None

If none can be found, returns None.
