Tizen Native API  5.5

entry_inheritance_tree.png

An entry is a convenience widget which shows a box that the user can enter text into. Entries by default don't scroll, so they grow to accommodate the entire text, resizing the parent window as needed. This can be changed with the elm_entry_scrollable_set() function.

They can also be single line or multi line (the default) and when set to multi line mode they support text wrapping in any of the modes indicated by Elm_Wrap_Type.

Other features include password mode, filtering of inserted text with elm_entry_markup_filter_append() and related functions, inline "items" and formatted markup text.

This widget inherits from the Layout one, so that all the functions acting on it also work for entry objects (since 1.8).

This widget implements the elm-scrollable-interface interface, so that all (non-deprecated) functions for the base Elm_Scroller widget also work for entries (since 1.8).

Some calls on the entry's API are marked as deprecated, as they just wrap the scrollable widgets counterpart functions. Use the ones we point you to, for each case of deprecation here, instead -- eventually the deprecated ones will be discarded (next major release).

Formatted text

The markup tags supported by the Entry are defined by the theme, but even when writing new themes or extensions it's a good idea to stick to a sane default, to maintain coherency and avoid application breakages. Currently defined by the default theme are the following tags:

  • <br>: Inserts a line break.
  • <ps>: Inserts a paragraph separator. This is preferred over line breaks.
  • <tab>: Inserts a tab.
  • <em>...</em>: Emphasis. Sets the oblique style for the enclosed text.
  • <b>...</b>: Sets the bold style for the enclosed text.
  • <link>...</link>: Underlines the enclosed text.
  • <hilight>...</hilight>: Highlights the enclosed text.
  • <title>...</title>: Main title.
  • <subtitle>...</subtitle>: Secondary level title.
  • <bigger>...</bigger>: A really big text, not so big as the titles.
  • <big>...</big>: Big text.
  • <small>...</small>: Small text.
  • <smaller>...</smaller>: Really small text, at the point of unreadability.

Entry also support tags for code syntax highlight. Note that this does not mean that the entry will automatically perform code highlight, application are responsable of applying the correct tag to code blocks. The default theme define the following tags:

  • <code>...</code>: Monospace font without shadows.
  • <comment>...</comment>: Code comments.
  • <string>...</string>: Strings of text.
  • <number>...</number>: Numeric expression (ex: 1, 2, 0.34, etc)
  • <brace>...</brace>: Braces used for code syntax.
  • <type>...</type>: Variables types (ex: int, float, char, Evas_Object, etc)
  • <class>...</class>: Class names, when defined, not when used.
  • <function>...</function>: Function names, when defined, not called.
  • <param>...</param>: Generic parameters.
  • <keyword>...</keyword>: Language keywords (ex: return, NULL, while, for, etc)
  • <preprocessor>...</preprocessor>: Preprocessors definitions.
  • <line_added>...</line_added>: Diff added lines.
  • <line_removed>...</line_removed>: Diff removed lines.
  • <line_changed>...</line_changed>: Diff changed lines.

Special markups

Besides those used to format text, entries support two special markup tags used to insert click-able portions of text or items inlined within the text.

Anchors

Anchors are similar to HTML anchors. Text can be surrounded by <a> and </a> tags and an event will be generated when this text is clicked, like this:

 This text is outside <a href=anc-01>but this one is an anchor</a>

The href attribute in the opening tag gives the name that will be used to identify the anchor and it can be any valid utf8 string.

When an anchor is clicked, an "anchor,clicked" signal is emitted with an Elm_Entry_Anchor_Info in the event_info parameter for the callback function. The same applies for "anchor,in" (mouse in), "anchor,out" (mouse out), "anchor,down" (mouse down), and "anchor,up" (mouse up) events on an anchor.

Items

Inlined in the text, any other Evas_Object can be inserted by using <item> tags this way:

 <item size=16x16 vsize=full href=emoticon/haha></item>

Just like with anchors, the href identifies each item, but these need, in addition, to indicate their size, which is done using any one of size, absize or relsize attributes. These attributes take their value in the WxH format, where W is the width and H the height of the item.

  • absize: Absolute pixel size for the item. Whatever value is set will be the item's size regardless of any scale value the object may have been set to. The final line height will be adjusted to fit larger items.
  • size: Similar to absize, but it's adjusted to the scale value set for the object.
  • relsize: Size is adjusted for the item to fit within the current line height.

Besides their size, items are specified a vsize value that affects how their final size and position are calculated. The possible values are:

  • ascent: Item will be placed within the line's baseline and its ascent. That is, the height between the line where all characters are positioned and the highest point in the line. For size and absize items, the descent value will be added to the total line height to make them fit. relsize items will be adjusted to fit within this space.
  • full: Items will be placed between the descent and ascent, or the lowest point in the line and its highest.

The next image shows different configurations of items and how the previously mentioned options affect their sizes. In all cases, the green line indicates the ascent, blue for the baseline and red for the descent.

entry_item.png

And another one to show how size differs from absize. In the first one, the scale value is set to 1.0, while the second one is using one of 2.0.

entry_item_scale.png

After the size for an item is calculated, the entry will request an object to place in its space. For this, the functions set with elm_entry_item_provider_append() and related functions will be called in order until one of them returns a non-NULL value. If no providers are available, or all of them return NULL, then the entry falls back to one of the internal defaults, provided the name matches with one of them.

All of the following are currently supported:

  • emoticon/angry
  • emoticon/angry-shout
  • emoticon/crazy-laugh
  • emoticon/evil-laugh
  • emoticon/evil
  • emoticon/goggle-smile
  • emoticon/grumpy
  • emoticon/grumpy-smile
  • emoticon/guilty
  • emoticon/guilty-smile
  • emoticon/haha
  • emoticon/half-smile
  • emoticon/happy-panting
  • emoticon/happy
  • emoticon/indifferent
  • emoticon/kiss
  • emoticon/knowing-grin
  • emoticon/laugh
  • emoticon/little-bit-sorry
  • emoticon/love-lots
  • emoticon/love
  • emoticon/minimal-smile
  • emoticon/not-happy
  • emoticon/not-impressed
  • emoticon/omg
  • emoticon/opensmile
  • emoticon/smile
  • emoticon/sorry
  • emoticon/squint-laugh
  • emoticon/surprised
  • emoticon/suspicious
  • emoticon/tongue-dangling
  • emoticon/tongue-poke
  • emoticon/uh
  • emoticon/unhappy
  • emoticon/very-sorry
  • emoticon/what
  • emoticon/wink
  • emoticon/worried
  • emoticon/wtf

Alternatively, an item may reference an image by its path, using the URI form file:///path/to/an/image.png and the entry will then use that image for the item.

Setting entry's style

There are 2 major ways to change the entry's style:

You should modify the theme when you would like to change the style for aesthetic reasons. While the user style should be changed when you would like to change the style to something specific defined at run-time, e.g, setting font or font size in a text editor.

Loading and saving files

Entries have convenience functions to load text from a file and save changes back to it after a short delay. The automatic saving is enabled by default, but can be disabled with elm_entry_autosave_set() and files can be loaded directly as plain text or have any markup in them recognized. See elm_entry_file_set() for more details.

Emitted signals

This widget emits the following signals, besides the ones sent from Layout :

  • "aborted": The escape key was pressed on a single line entry. (since 1.7)

)

Inserts the given text into the entry at the current cursor position.

This inserts text at the cursor position as if it was typed by the user (note that this also allows markup which a user can't just "type" as it would be converted to escaped text, so this call can be used to insert things like emoticon items or bold push/pop tags, other font and color change tags etc.)

If any selection exists, it will be replaced by the inserted text.

The inserted text is subject to any filters set for the widget.

See also elm_entry_markup_filter_append.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]entryThe text to insert.
Since :

Eina_Bool elm_entry_file_set ( Evas_Object obj,
const char *  file,
Elm_Text_Format  format 
)

This sets the file (and implicitly loads it) for the text to display and then edit. All changes are written back to the file after a short delay if the entry object is set to autosave (which is the default).

If the entry had any other file set previously, any changes made to it will be saved if the autosave feature is enabled, otherwise, the file will be silently discarded and any non-saved changes will be lost.

Returns:
EINA_TRUE on success, EINA_FALSE otherwise
Parameters:
[in]objThe entry object
[in]fileThe path to the file to load and save
[in]formatThe file format

Default is ELM_TEXT_FORMAT_PLAIN_UTF8, if you want to use ELM_TEXT_FORMAT_MARKUP_UTF8 then you need to set the text format before calling Efl::File::load.

You could also set it before a call to elm_entry_file_save in order to save with the given format.

Use it before calling Efl::File::load or elm_entry_file_save.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]formatThe file format
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
void elm_entry_filter_accept_set ( void *  data,
Evas_Object entry,
char **  text 
)

Filter inserted text based on accepted or rejected sets of characters

Add this filter to an entry to restrict the set of accepted characters based on the sets in the provided Elm_Entry_Filter_Accept_Set. This structure contains both accepted and rejected sets, but they are mutually exclusive. This structure must be available for as long as the entry is alive AND the elm_entry_filter_accept_set is being used.

Parameters:
[in]dataThe data passed to this function.
[in]entryThe object.
[in,out]textThe entry's text to accept or reject filter

The accepted set takes preference, so if it is set, the filter will only work based on the accepted characters, ignoring anything in the rejected value. If accepted is NULL, then rejected is used.

In both cases, the function filters by matching utf8 characters to the raw markup text, so it can be used to remove formatting tags.

This filter, like any others, does not apply when setting the entry text directly with elm_object_text_set()

Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
entry_example.c.
void elm_entry_filter_limit_size ( void *  data,
Evas_Object entry,
char **  text 
)

Filter inserted text based on user defined character and byte limits

Add this filter to an entry to limit the characters that it will accept based the contents of the provided Elm_Entry_Filter_Limit_Size. The function works on the UTF-8 representation of the string, converting it from the set markup, thus not accounting for any format in it.

Parameters:
[in]dataThe data passed to this function.
[in]entryThe object.
[in,out]textThe entry's text to limit size

The user must create an Elm_Entry_Filter_Limit_Size structure and pass it as data when setting the filter. In it, it's possible to set limits by character count or bytes (any of them is disabled if 0), and both can be set at the same time. In that case, it first checks for characters, then bytes. The Elm_Entry_Filter_Limit_Size structure must be alive and valid for as long as the entry is alive AND the elm_entry_filter_limit_size filter is set.

The function will cut the inserted text in order to allow only the first number of characters that are still allowed. The cut is made in characters, even when limiting by bytes, in order to always contain valid ones and avoid half unicode characters making it in.

This filter, like any others, does not apply when setting the entry text directly with elm_object_text_set().

If there's any selected text in the entry, this function returns it as a string in markup format. null is returned if no selection exists or if an error occurred.

The returned value points to an internal string and should not be freed or modified in any way. If the entry object is deleted or its contents are changed, the returned pointer should be considered invalid.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Selected string

Since :
2.3.1
void elm_entry_single_line_set ( Elm_Entry *  obj,
Eina_Bool  single_line 
)

Sets the entry to single line mode.

In single line mode, entries don't ever wrap when the text reaches the edge, and instead they keep growing horizontally. Pressing the Enter key will generate an $"activate" event instead of adding a new line.

When single_line is false, line wrapping takes effect again and pressing enter will break the text into a different line without generating any events.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]single_lineIf true, the text in the entry will be on a single line.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
entry_example.c, map_example_03.c, web_example_02.c, and win_example.c.

Efl_Canvas_Object* elm_entry_textblock_get ( const Elm_Entry *  obj)

Returns the actual textblock object of the entry.

This function exposes the internal textblock object that actually contains and draws the text. This should be used for low-level manipulations that are otherwise not possible.

Changing the textblock directly from here will not notify edje/elm to recalculate the textblock size automatically, so any modifications done to the textblock returned by this function should be followed by a call to elm_entry_calc_force.

The return value is marked as const as an additional warning. One should not use the returned object with any of the generic evas functions (geometry_get/resize/move and etc), but only with the textblock functions; The former will either not work at all, or break the correct functionality.

IMPORTANT: Many functions may change (i.e delete and create a new one) the internal textblock object. Do NOT cache the returned object, and try not to mix calls on this object with regular elm_entry calls (which may change the internal textblock object). This applies to all cursors returned from textblock calls, and all the other derivative values.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Textblock object
Since :
2.3.1
char* elm_entry_utf8_to_markup ( const char *  s)

This converts a UTF-8 string into markup (HTML-like).

The returned string is a malloc'ed buffer and it should be freed when not needed anymore.

Parameters:
sThe string (in UTF-8) to be converted
Returns:
The converted string (in markup). It should be freed.

For example, passing "<align=center>hello</align>&gt;" will return "&lt;align=center&gt;hello&lt;/align&gt; &amp;gt;". This is useful when you want to display "&" in label, entry, and some widgets which use textblock internally.

Since :
2.3.1
EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_anchor_hover_end ( Eo *  obj)

EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_selection_copy ( Eo *  obj)

This executes a "copy" action on the selected text in the entry.

EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_selection_cut ( Eo *  obj)

This executes a "cut" action on the selected text in the entry.

EOAPI const char* elm_obj_entry_selection_get ( const Eo *  obj)

Get any selected text within the entry.

If there's any selected text in the entry, this function returns it as a string in markup format. null is returned if no selection exists or if an error occurred.

The returned value points to an internal string and should not be freed or modified in any way. If the entry object is deleted or its contents are changed, the returned pointer should be considered invalid.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Selected string

This returns whether the entry's selection handlers are disabled.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
If true, the selection handlers are disabled.
EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_selection_handler_disabled_set ( Eo *  obj,
Eina_Bool  disabled 
)

This disabled the entry's selection handlers.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]disabledIf true, the selection handlers are disabled.
EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_selection_paste ( Eo *  obj)

This executes a "paste" action in the entry.

EOAPI Eina_Bool elm_obj_entry_single_line_get ( const Eo *  obj)

Get whether the entry is set to be single line.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
If true, the text in the entry will be on a single line.
EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_single_line_set ( Eo *  obj,
Eina_Bool  single_line 
)

Sets the entry to single line mode.

In single line mode, entries don't ever wrap when the text reaches the edge, and instead they keep growing horizontally. Pressing the Enter key will generate an $"activate" event instead of adding a new line.

When single_line is false, line wrapping takes effect again and pressing enter will break the text into a different line without generating any events.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]single_lineIf true, the text in the entry will be on a single line.
EOAPI const char* elm_obj_entry_text_style_user_peek ( const Eo *  obj)

Get the style on the top of user style stack.

See also elm_obj_entry_text_style_user_push.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Style
Since (EFL) :

EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_text_style_user_pop ( Eo *  obj)

Remove the style in the top of user style stack.

Since (EFL) :
1.7
EOAPI void elm_obj_entry_text_style_user_push ( Eo *  obj,
const char *  style 
)

Push the style to the top of user style stack. If there is styles in the user style stack, the properties in the top style of user style stack will replace the properties in current theme. The input style is specified in format tag='property=value' (i.e. DEFAULT='font=Sans font_size=60'hilight=' + font_weight=Bold').

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]styleThe style user to push.

EOAPI char* elm_obj_entry_textblock_cursor_content_get ( const Eo *  obj)

Get the character pointed by the cursor at its current position.

This function returns a string with the utf8 character stored at the current cursor position. Only the text is returned, any format that may exist will not be part of the return value. You must free the string when done with free.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Character
EOAPI Eina_Bool elm_obj_entry_textblock_cursor_geometry_get ( const Eo *  obj,
int *  x,
int *  y,
int *  w,
int *  h 
)

This function returns the geometry of the cursor.

It's useful if you want to draw something on the cursor (or where it is), or for example in the case of scrolled entry where you want to show the cursor.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[out]xX coordinate
[out]yY coordinate
[out]wWidth
[out]hHeight
Returns:
true on success, false otherwise
EOAPI Efl_Canvas_Object* elm_obj_entry_textblock_get ( const Eo *  obj)

Returns the actual textblock object of the entry.

This function exposes the internal textblock object that actually contains and draws the text. This should be used for low-level manipulations that are otherwise not possible.

Changing the textblock directly from here will not notify edje/elm to recalculate the textblock size automatically, so any modifications done to the textblock returned by this function should be followed by a call to elm_entry_calc_force.

The return value is marked as const as an additional warning. One should not use the returned object with any of the generic evas functions (geometry_get/resize/move and etc), but only with the textblock functions; The former will either not work at all, or break the correct functionality.

IMPORTANT: Many functions may change (i.e delete and create a new one) the internal textblock object. Do NOT cache the returned object, and try not to mix calls on this object with regular elm_entry calls (which may change the internal textblock object). This applies to all cursors returned from textblock calls, and all the other derivative values.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Textblock object
