Tizen Native API  5.5
Generic Object Functions

Functions that manipulate generic Evas objects.

All Evas displaying units are Evas objects. One handles them all by means of the handle Evas_Object. Besides Evas treats their objects equally, they have types that define their specific behavior (and individual API).

Evas comes with a set of built-in object types:

  • rectangle,
  • line,
  • polygon,
  • text,
  • textblock,
  • textgrid and
  • image.

These functions apply to any Evas object, whatever type they may have.

Note:
The built-in types that are most used are rectangles, text and images. In fact, with these one can create 2D interfaces of arbitrary complexity and EFL makes it easy.

Function Documentation

Get the Evas object stacked right above obj

Returns:
the Evas_Object directly above obj, if any, or NULL, if none

This function will traverse layers in its search, if there are objects on layers above the one obj is placed at.

See also:
evas_object_layer_get()
evas_object_layer_set()
evas_object_below_get() 2.3.1
Examples:
evas-stacking.c.

Retrieves whether or not the given Evas object is to be drawn anti_aliased.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
true if the object is to be anti_aliased, false otherwise.
Since :
2.3.1
void evas_object_anti_alias_set ( Efl_Canvas_Object obj,
Eina_Bool  anti_alias 
)

Sets whether or not the given Evas object is to be drawn anti-aliased.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]anti_aliastrue if the object is to be anti_aliased, false otherwise.
Since :
2.3.1

Get the Evas object stacked right below obj

Returns:
the Evas_Object directly below obj, if any, or NULL, if none

This function will traverse layers in its search, if there are objects on layers below the one obj is placed at.

See also:
evas_object_layer_get()
evas_object_layer_set()
evas_object_below_get() 2.3.1
Examples:
evas-stacking.c.

Get the object clipping obj (if any).

This function returns the object clipping obj. If obj is not being clipped at all, null is returned. The object obj must be a valid Evas_Object.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
The object to clip obj by.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-object-manipulation.c.

Clip one object to another.

This function will clip the object obj to the area occupied by the object clip. This means the object obj will only be visible within the area occupied by the clipping object ($clip).

The color of the object being clipped will be multiplied by the color of the clipping one, so the resulting color for the former will be "RESULT = (OBJ * CLIP) / (255 * 255)", per color element (red, green, blue and alpha).

Clipping is recursive, so clipping objects may be clipped by others, and their color will in term be multiplied. You may not set up circular clipping lists (i.e. object 1 clips object 2, which clips object 1): the behavior of Evas is undefined in this case.

Objects which do not clip others are visible in the canvas as normal; those that clip one or more objects become invisible themselves, only affecting what they clip. If an object ceases to have other objects being clipped by it, it will become visible again.

The visibility of an object affects the objects that are clipped by it, so if the object clipping others is not shown (as in Efl::Gfx::Entity::visible), the objects clipped by it will not be shown either.

If obj was being clipped by another object when this function is called, it gets implicitly removed from the old clipper's domain and is made now to be clipped by its new clipper.

If clip is null, this call will disable clipping for the object i.e. its visibility and color get detached from the previous clipper. If it wasn't, this has no effect.

Note:
Only rectangle and image (masks) objects can be used as clippers. Anything else will result in undefined behaviour.
Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]clipThe object to clip obj by.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-object-manipulation.c.

Disable/cease clipping on a clipped obj object.

This function disables clipping for the object obj, if it was already clipped, i.e., its visibility and color get detached from the previous clipper. If it wasn't, this has no effect. The object obj must be a valid Evas_Object.

See also evas_object_clip_set, evas_object_clipees_get and evas_object_clip_get. 2.3.1

Examples:
evas-object-manipulation.c.

Return a list of objects currently clipped by obj.

This returns the internal list handle that contains all objects clipped by the object obj. If none are clipped by it, the call returns null. This list is only valid until the clip list is changed and should be fetched again with another call to this function if any objects being clipped by this object are unclipped, clipped by a new object, deleted or get the clipper deleted. These operations will invalidate the list returned, so it should not be used anymore after that point. Any use of the list after this may have undefined results, possibly leading to crashes. The object obj must be a valid Evas_Object.

See also evas_object_clip_set, evas_object_clip_unset and evas_object_clip_get.

Returns:
A list of objects being clipped by obj. 2.3.1

Test if any object is clipped by obj.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
true if any object is clipped by obj, false otherwise
Since (EFL) :
1.8
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
Parameters:

Evas* evas_object_evas_get ( const Eo *  obj)

Returns whether the mouse pointer is logically inside the object.

Parameters:
[in]devThe pointer device.
Returns:
true if the pointer is inside, false otherwise.
Since:
1.20 Returns whether the default mouse pointer is logically inside the object.

When this function is called it will return a value of either false or true, depending on if event_feed_mouse_in or event_feed_mouse_out have been called to feed in a mouse enter event into the object.

A return value of true indicates the mouse is logically inside the object, and false implies it is logically outside the object.

If e is not a valid object, the return value is undefined.

Returns:
true if the mouse pointer is inside the object, false otherwise Returns whether the coords are logically inside the object.

When this function is called it will return a value of either false or true, depending on if the coords are inside the object's current geometry.

A return value of true indicates the position is logically inside the object, and false implies it is logically outside the object.

If e is not a valid object, the return value is undefined.

Parameters:
[in]xThe canvas-relative x coordinate.
[in]yThe canvas-relative y coordinate.
Returns:
true if the coords are inside the object, false otherwise Get the Evas to which this object belongs to

The object may be an evas object, an elementary object or window, or an evas 3D / VG object. 2.3.1

Indicates that this object is the keyboard event receiver on its canvas.

Changing focus only affects where (key) input events go. There can be only one object focused at any time. If focus is true, obj will be set as the currently focused object and it will receive all keyboard events that are not exclusive key grabs on other objects. See also Efl::Canvas::Object::seat_focus_check, Efl::Canvas::Object::seat_focus_add, Efl::Canvas::Object::seat_focus_del.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
true when set as focused or false otherwise.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
ecore_imf_example.c, and evas-events.c.
void evas_object_focus_set ( Efl_Canvas_Object obj,

Indicates that this object is the keyboard event receiver on its canvas.

Changing focus only affects where (key) input events go. There can be only one object focused at any time. If focus is true, obj will be set as the currently focused object and it will receive all keyboard events that are not exclusive key grabs on other objects.

Determine whether an object is set to freeze (discard) events.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Pass when obj is to freeze events ($true) or not ($false).
Since (EFL) :
1.1
Since :
2.3.1

Set whether an Evas object is to freeze (discard) events.

If freeze is true, it will force events on obj to be discarded. Unlike evas_object_pass_events_set, events will not be passed to next lower object. This API can be used for blocking events while obj is in transition.

If freeze is false, events will be processed on that object as normal.

Warning:
If you block only key/mouse up events with this API, you can't be sure of the state of any objects that have only key/mouse down events.
Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]freezePass when obj is to freeze events ($true) or not ($false).
Since (EFL) :
1.1
Since :
2.3.1

If true the object belongs to the window border decorations.

This will be false by default, and should be false for all objects created by the application, unless swallowed in some very specific parts of the window.

It is very unlikely that an application needs to call this manually, as the window will handle this feature automatically.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
true if the object is a frame, false otherwise
Since (EFL) :
1.2
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)

If true the object belongs to the window border decorations.

Creates a new smart rectangle object on the given Evas e canvas.

Parameters:
eThe given canvas.
Returns:
The created object handle.

This provides a smart version of the typical "event rectangle", which allows objects to set this as their parent and route events to a group of objects. Events will not propagate to non-member objects below this object.

Adding members is done just like a normal smart object, using efl_canvas_group_member_add (Eo API) or evas_object_smart_member_add (legacy).

Child objects are not modified in any way, unlike other types of smart objects.

It is a user error for any child objects to be stacked above the event grabber parent while the event grabber is visible. A critical error will be raised if this is detected at any point.

Since (EFL) :
1.20 This will be false by default, and should be false for all objects created by the application, unless swallowed in some very specific parts of the window.

It is very unlikely that an application needs to call this manually, as the window will handle this feature automatically.

short evas_object_layer_get ( const Evas_Object obj)

Retrieves the layer of its canvas that the given object is part of.

Returns:
Number of its layer
See also:
evas_object_layer_set() 2.3.1
Examples:
evas-stacking.c.
void evas_object_layer_set ( Evas_Object obj,
short  l 
)

Sets the layer of its canvas that the given object will be part of.

If you don't use this function, you'll be dealing with an unique layer of objects, the default one. Additional layers are handy when you don't want a set of objects to interfere with another set with regard to stacking. Two layers are completely disjoint in that matter.

This is a low-level function, which you'd be using when something should be always on top, for example.

Warning:
Be careful, it doesn't make sense to change the layer of smart objects' children. Smart objects have a layer of their own, which should contain all their children objects.
See also:
evas_object_layer_get()
Parameters:
[in]lThe number of the layer to place the object on. Must be between #EVAS_LAYER_MIN and #EVAS_LAYER_MAX. 2.3.1
Examples:
eina_tiler_01.c, and evas-stacking.c.
void evas_object_lower ( Evas_Object obj)

Lower obj to the bottom of its layer.

obj will, then, be the lowest one in the layer it belongs to. Objects on other layers won't get touched.

See also:
evas_object_stack_above()
evas_object_stack_below()
evas_object_raise() 2.3.1
Examples:

Whether the map is enabled or not.

Parameters:
[in]objThe evas object
Returns:
The value of enabled as passed to evas_object_map_enable_set().
See also:
evas_object_map_enable_set
Since :
2.3.1
void evas_object_map_enable_set ( Evas_Object obj,
Eina_Bool  enabled 
)

Enable or disable the map that is set.

Enable or disable the use of map for the object obj. On enable, the object geometry will be saved, and the new geometry will change (position and size) to reflect the map geometry set.

If the object doesn't have a map set (with evas_object_map_set), the initial geometry will be undefined. It is advised to always set a map to the object first, and then call this function to enable its use.

Parameters:
[in]enabledEnabled state.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-map-utils.c, and evas-smart-object.c.
const Evas_Map* evas_object_map_get ( const Evas_Object obj)

Get current object transformation map.

This returns the current internal map set on the indicated object. It is intended for read-only access and is only valid as long as the object is not deleted or the map on the object is not changed.

Returns:
The map.
Since :
2.3.1
void evas_object_map_set ( Evas_Object obj,
const Evas_Map *  map 
)

Set current object transformation map.

This sets the map on a given object. It is copied from the map pointer, so there is no need to keep the map object if you don't need it anymore.

A map is a set of 4 points which have canvas x, y coordinates per point, with an optional z point value as a hint for perspective correction, if it is available. As well each point has u and v coordinates. These are like "texture coordinates" in OpenGL in that they define a point in the source image that is mapped to that map vertex/point. The u corresponds to the x coordinate of this mapped point and v, the y coordinate. Note that these coordinates describe a bounding region to sample.

Note:
The map points a uv coordinates match the image geometry. If the map parameter is null, the stored map will be freed and geometry prior to enabling/setting a map will be restored.
Parameters:
[in]mapThe map.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-map-utils.c, and evas-smart-object.c.
Evas_BiDi_Direction evas_object_paragraph_direction_get ( const Efl_Canvas_Object obj)

This handles text paragraph direction of the given object. Even if the given object is not textblock or text, its smart child objects can inherit the paragraph direction from the given object. The default paragraph direction is inherit.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Paragraph direction for the given object.
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)
void evas_object_paragraph_direction_set ( Efl_Canvas_Object obj,
Evas_BiDi_Direction  dir 
)

This handles text paragraph direction of the given object. Even if the given object is not textblock or text, its smart child objects can inherit the paragraph direction from the given object. The default paragraph direction is inherit.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]dirParagraph direction for the given object.
Since :
3.0f(2.3.1)

Determine whether an object is set to pass (ignore) events.

See also evas_object_repeat_events_get, evas_object_propagate_events_get.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Whether obj is to pass events ($true) or not ($false).
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-stacking.c.

Set whether an Evas object is to pass (ignore) events.

If pass is true, it will make events on obj to be ignored. They will be triggered on the next lower object (that is not set to pass events), instead (see Efl::Gfx::Stack::below).

If pass is false events will be processed on that object as normal.

Low-level pointer behaviour.

This function has a direct effect on event callbacks related to pointers (mouse, ...).

If the value is EVAS_OBJECT_POINTER_MODE_AUTO_GRAB (default), then when mouse is pressed down over this object, events will be restricted to it as source, mouse moves, for example, will be emitted even when the pointer goes outside this objects geometry.

If the value is EVAS_OBJECT_POINTER_MODE_NO_GRAB, then events will be emitted just when inside this object area.

The default value is EVAS_OBJECT_POINTER_MODE_AUTO_GRAB. See also: Efl::Canvas::Object::pointer_mode_by_device::get and Efl::Canvas::Object::pointer_mode_by_device::set Note: This function will only set/get the mode for the default pointer.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:

Determine whether an object is set to use precise point collision detection.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Whether to use precise point collision detection or not. The default value is false.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-events.c.

Set whether to use precise (usually expensive) point collision detection for a given Evas object.

Use this function to make Evas treat objects' transparent areas as not belonging to it with regard to mouse pointer events. By default, all of the object's boundary rectangle will be taken in account for them.

Warning:
By using precise point collision detection you'll be making Evas more resource intensive.
Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]preciseWhether to use precise point collision detection or not. The default value is false.
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-events.c.

Retrieve whether an Evas object is set to propagate events.

See also evas_object_repeat_events_get, evas_object_pass_events_get.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
Whether to propagate events ($true) or not ($false).
Since :
2.3.1

Set whether events on a smart object's member should be propagated up to its parent.

This function has no effect if obj is not a member of a smart object.

If prop is true, events occurring on this object will be propagated on to the smart object of which obj is a member. If prop is false, events occurring on this object will not be propagated on to the smart object of which obj is a member. The default value is true.

Examples:
evas-stacking.c.

Retrieves the current value of the operation used for rendering the Evas object.

Returns:
One of the Evas_Render_Op values. Only blend (default) and copy modes are supported. 2.3.1
void evas_object_render_op_set ( Evas_Object obj,
Evas_Render_Op  render_op 
)

Sets the render mode to be used for compositing the Evas object.

Note that only copy and blend modes are actually supported: - Evas_Render_Op::EVAS_RENDER_BLEND means the object will be merged on top of objects below it using simple alpha compositing. - Evas_Render_Op::EVAS_RENDER_COPY means this object's pixels will replace everything that is below, making this object opaque.

Please do not assume that Evas_Render_Op::EVAS_RENDER_COPY mode can be used to "poke" holes in a window (to see through it), as only the compositor can ensure that. Copy mode should only be used with otherwise opaque widgets, or inside non-window surfaces (eg. a transparent background inside an Ecore.Evas.Buffer).

Parameters:
[in]render_opOne of the Evas_Render_Op values. Only blend (default) and copy modes are supported. 2.3.1

Returns:
Whether obj is to repeat events ($true) or not ($false).
Since :
2.3.1
Examples:
evas-stacking.c.

Set whether an Evas object is to repeat events.

If repeat is true, it will make events on obj to also be repeated for the next lower object in the objects' stack (see see Efl::Gfx::Stack::below).

If repeat is false, events occurring on obj will be processed only on it.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]repeatWhether obj is to repeat events ($true) or not ($false).

Returns:
The scaling factor. 1.0 means no scaling, default size. 2.3.1
void evas_object_scale_set ( Evas_Object obj,
double  scale 
)

Sets the scaling factor for an Evas object. Does not affect all objects.

This will multiply the object's dimension by the given factor, thus altering its geometry (width and height). Useful when you want scalable UI elements, possibly at run time.

Note:
Only text and textblock objects have scaling change handlers. Other objects won't change visually on this call.
Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
[in]scaleThe scaling factor. 1.0 means no scaling, default size. 2.3.1
void evas_object_size_hint_align_get ( const Evas_Object obj,
double *  x,
double *  y 
)

Retrieves the hints for on object's alignment.

This is not a size enforcement in any way, it's just a hint that should be used whenever appropriate.

Note:
Use null pointers on the hint components you're not interested in: they'll be ignored by the function.
If obj is invalid, then the hint components will be set with 0.5
Parameters:
[out]xDouble, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0 or with the special value #EVAS_HINT_FILL, to use as horizontal alignment hint.
[out]yDouble, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0 or with the special value #EVAS_HINT_FILL, to use as vertical alignment hint. 2.3.1
Examples:
button_example_01.c, and evas-hints.c.
void evas_object_size_hint_align_set ( Evas_Object obj,
double  x,
double  y 
)

Sets the hints for an object's alignment.

These are hints on how to align an object inside the boundaries of a container/manager. Accepted values are in the 0.0 to 1.0 range, with the special value #EVAS_HINT_FILL used to specify "justify" or "fill" by some users. In this case, maximum size hints should be enforced with higher priority, if they are set. Also, any padding hint set on objects should add up to the alignment space on the final scene composition.

See documentation of possible users: in Evas, they are the box and table smart objects.

For the horizontal component, 0.0 means to the left, 1.0 means to the right. Analogously, for the vertical component, 0.0 to the top, 1.0 means to the bottom.

This is not a size enforcement in any way, it's just a hint that should be used whenever appropriate.

Note:
Default alignment hint values are 0.5, for both axis.
Parameters:
[in]xDouble, ranging from 0.0 to 1.0 or with the special value #EVAS_HINT_FILL, to use as horizontal alignment hint.

void evas_object_size_hint_aspect_get ( const Evas_Object obj,
Evas_Aspect_Control *  aspect,
Evas_Coord *  w,
Evas_Coord *  h 
)

Retrieves the hints for an object's aspect ratio.

The different aspect ratio policies are documented in the #Evas_Aspect_Control type. A container respecting these size hints would resize its children accordingly to those policies.

For any policy, if any of the given aspect ratio terms are 0, the object's container should ignore the aspect and scale obj to occupy the whole available area. If they are both positive integers, that proportion will be respected, under each scaling policy.

Note:
Use null pointers on the hint components you're not interested in: they'll be ignored by the function.
Parameters:
[out]aspectThe policy/type of aspect ratio to apply to obj.
[out]wInteger to use as aspect width ratio term.
[out]hInteger to use as aspect height ratio term. 2.3.1
Examples:

double  y 
)

Sets the hints for an object's weight.

This is not a size enforcement in any way, it's just a hint that should be used whenever appropriate.

This is a hint on how a container object should resize a given child within its area. Containers may adhere to the simpler logic of just expanding the child object's dimensions to fit its own (see the #EVAS_HINT_EXPAND helper weight macro) or the complete one of taking each child's weight hint as real weights to how much of its size to allocate for them in each axis. A container is supposed to, after normalizing the weights of its children (with weight hints), distribute the space it has to layout them by those factors -- most weighted children get larger in this process than the least ones.

Note:
Default weight hint values are 0.0, for both axis.
Parameters:
[in]xNon-negative double value to use as horizontal weight hint.
[in]yNon-negative double value to use as vertical weight hint. 2.3.1

Gets the parent smart object of a given Evas object, if it has one.

This can be different from Efl::Object::parent because this one is used internally for rendering and the normal parent is what the user expects to be the parent.

Parameters:
[in]objThe object.
Returns:
The parent smart object of obj or null.

void evas_object_stack_above ( Evas_Object obj,
Evas_Object above 
)

Stack obj immediately above above

Objects, in a given canvas, are stacked in the order they get added to it. This means that, if they overlap, the highest ones will cover the lowest ones, in that order. This function is a way to change the stacking order for the objects.

This function is intended to be used with objects belonging to the same layer in a given canvas, otherwise it will fail (and accomplish nothing).

If you have smart objects on your canvas and obj is a member of one of them, then above must also be a member of the same smart object.

Similarly, if obj is not a member of a smart object, above must not be either.

Objects, in a given canvas, are stacked in the order they get added to it. This means that, if they overlap, the highest ones will cover the lowest ones, in that order. This function is a way to change the stacking order for the objects.

This function is intended to be used with objects belonging to the same layer in a given canvas, otherwise it will fail (and accomplish nothing).

If you have smart objects on your canvas and obj is a member of one of them, then below must also be a member of the same smart object.

Similarly, if obj is not a member of a smart object, below must not be either.
