SYNOPSIS

    use Curses::UI;
    my $cui = new Curses::UI;
    my $win = $cui->add(
        'window_id', 'Window',
        %options,
    );

DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Window is a window widget. It can be added to a Curses::UI instance. After that the window can be filled with other widgets to create an application window. For information on how to fill the window with widgets, see Curses::UI::Container.

STANDARD OPTIONS

-parent, -x, -y, -width, -height, -pad, -padleft, -padright, -padtop, -padbottom, -ipad, -ipadleft, -ipadright, -ipadtop, -ipadbottom, -title, -titlefullwidth, -titlereverse, -onfocus, -onblur
For an explanation of these standard options, see Curses::UI::Widget.

WIDGET-SPECIFIC OPTIONS

-centered < BOOLEAN >
 
A window can automatically be drawn in the center of the screen. To enable this option use a true value and to disable it use a false value. The default is not to center a window. Example:
 
    $cui->add('mywindow', 'Window', -centered => 1);
    

METHODS

new ( OPTIONS )
layout ( )
draw ( BOOLEAN )
focus ( )
onFocus ( CODEREF )
onBlur ( CODEREF )
intellidraw ( )
 
These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Widget for an explanation of these.
modalfocus ( )
 
If this method is called, the window will get modal focus. This means that all events will be sent to this window. By calling the loose_focus method, the window will loose its focus.
loose_focus ( )
 
This method will have the window loose its focus (using this method you can also let a modal focused window loose its focus).
