       "Tickit::Widget::Frame" - draw a frame around another widget


        use Tickit;
        use Tickit::Widget::Frame;
        use Tickit::Widget::Static;

        my $hello = Tickit::Widget::Static->new(
           text   => "Hello, world",
           align  => "centre",
           valign => "middle",

        my $frame = Tickit::Widget::Frame->new(
           child => $hello,
           style => { linetype => "single" },

        Tickit->new( root => $frame )->run;


       This container widget draws a frame around a single child widget.


       The default style pen is used as the widget pen. The following style pen prefixes are also

       frame => PEN
           The pen used to render the frame lines

       The following style keys are used:

       linetype => STRING
           Controls the type of line characters used to draw the frame. Must be one of the
           following names:

            ascii single double thick solid_inside solid_outside

           The "ascii" linetype is default, and uses only the "-|+" ASCII characters.  Other
           linetypes use Unicode box-drawing characters. These may not be supported by all
           terminals or fonts.

       linetype_top => STRING
       linetype_bottom => STRING
       linetype_left => STRING
       linetype_right => STRING
           Overrides the "linetype" attribute for each side of the frame specifically.  If two
           line-drawing styles meet at corners they should be drawn correctly if
           "Tickit::RenderBuffer" can combine the line segments, but in other circumstances the
           corners are drawn as extensions of the top or bottom line, and the left and right
           lines do not meet it.

           Any edge's linetype may be set to "none" to cause that edge not to have a line at all;
           no extra space will be consumed on that side.


   $frame = Tickit::Widget::Frame->new( %args )
       Constructs a new "Tickit::Widget::Static" object.

       Takes the following named arguments in addition to those taken by the base
       Tickit::SingleChildWidget constructor:

       title => STRING

       title_align => FLOAT|STRING
               Optional. Defaults to 0.0 if unspecified.

       For more details see the accessors below.


   $title = $frame->title
   $frame->set_title( $title )
       Accessor for the "title" property, a string written in the top of the frame.

   $title_align = $frame->title_align
   $frame->set_title_align( $title_align )
       Accessor for the "title_align" property. Gives a vlaue in the range 0.0 to 1.0 to align
       the title in the top of the frame.

       See also Tickit::WidgetRole::Alignable.


       ·   Specific pen for title. Layered on top of frame pen.

       ·   Caption at the bottom of the frame as well. Identical to title.

       ·   Consider if it's useful to provide accessors to apply extra padding inside the frame,
           surrounding the child window.
