Member variable XbpPushButton():drawMode Foundation
Specifies the drawing mode of the pushbutton object.
The :drawMode instance variable specifies the mode used to display the pushbutton on the screen. In the default draw mode (XBP_DRAW_NORMAL), the operating system takes full control over the drawing process. In this mode, an XbpPushbutton object is displayed using default imagery and the object's appearance cannot be controlled by the application. However, this default behavior can be overridden. If the value XBP_DRAW_OWNER or XBP_DRAW_OWNERADVANCED is assigned to the :drawMode instance variable, no drawing is performed by the operating system. Instead, the Xbase++ runtime system uses xbeP_Draw events to notify the application whenever the push button needs to be redrawn. The application is responsible for processing this event, and for creating the pushbutton's on-screen visualization. For this, the Graphics Engine commands can be used.
This protocol is called owner-drawing because it is the responsibility of the push button's owner to display the button. Using owner-drawing, an application can customize the visualization and the behavior of a XbpPushbutton object.
|Pushbutton is drawn by the system
|Pushbutton is entirely drawn by the application
|Parts of the pushbutton may be drawn by the application
The drawing mode must be assigned to :drawMode before the method :create() is executed.
