       "Tickit::Widget::Scroller" - a widget displaying a scrollable collection of items

SYNOPSIS

        use Tickit;
        use Tickit::Widget::Scroller;
        use Tickit::Widget::Scroller::Item::Text;

        my $tickit = Tickit->new;

        $tickit->run

DESCRIPTION

       This class provides a widget which displays a scrollable list of items. The view of the
       items is scrollable, able to display only a part of the list.

       A Scroller widget stores a list of instances implementing the
       "Tickit::Widget::Scroller::Item" interface.

STYLE

       The default style pen is used as the widget pen.

       The following style pen prefixes are used:

       indicator => PEN
           The pen used for the scroll position indicators at the top or bottom of the display

CONSTRUCTOR

   new
          $scroller = Tickit::Widget::Scroller->new( %args )

       Constructs a new "Tickit::Widget::Scroller" object. The new object will start with an
       empty list of items.

       Takes the following named arguments:

       gravity => STRING
               Optional. If given the value "bottom", resize events and the "push" method will
               attempt to preserve the item at the bottom of the screen. Otherwise, will preserve
               the top.

       gen_top_indicator => CODE
       gen_bottom_indicator => CODE
               Optional. Generator functions for the top and bottom indicators. See also
               "set_gen_top_indicator" and "set_gen_bottom_indicator".

METHODS

   on_scrolled
   set_on_scrolled
          $on_scrolled = $scroller->on_scrolled

          $scroller->set_on_scrolled( $on_scrolled )

       Return or set the CODE reference to be called when the scroll position is adjusted.

          $on_scrolled->( $scroller, $delta )

       This is invoked by the "scroll" method, including the "scroll_to", "scroll_to_top" and
       "scroll_to_bottom". In normal cases it will be given the delta offset that "scroll" itself
       was invoked with, though this may be clipped if this would scroll past the beginning or
       end of the display.

   push
          $scroller->push( @items )

       Append the given items to the end of the list.

       If the Scroller is already at the tail (that is, the last line of the last item is on
       display) and the gravity mode is "bottom", the newly added items will be displayed,
       possibly by scrolling downward if required. While the scroller isn't adjusted by using any
       of the "scroll" methods, it will remain following the tail of the items, scrolling itself
       downwards as more are added.

   unshift
          $scroller->unshift( @items )

       Prepend the given items to the beginning of the list.

       If the Scroller is already at the head (that is, the first line of the first item is on
       display) and the gravity mode is "top", the newly added items will be displayed, possibly
       by scrolling upward if required. While the scroller isn't adjusted by using any of the
       "scroll" methods, it will remain following the head of the items, scrolling itself upwards
       as more are added.

   shift
          @items = $scroller->shift( $count )

       Remove the given number of items from the start of the list and returns them.

       If any of the items are on display, the Scroller will be scrolled upwards an amount
       sufficient to close the gap, ensuring the first remaining item is now at the top of the
       display.

       The returned items may be re-used by adding them back into the scroller again either by
       "push" or "unshift", or may be discarded.

   pop
          @items = $scroller->pop( $count )

       Remove the given number of items from the end of the list and returns them.

       If any of the items are on display, the Scroller will be scrolled downwards an amount
       sufficient to close the gap, ensuring the last remaining item is now at the bottom of the
       display.

       The returned items may be re-used by adding them back into the scroller again either by
       "push" or "unshift", or may be discarded.

   scroll
          $scroller->scroll( $delta )

       Move the display up or down by the given $delta amount; with positive moving down. This
       will be a physical count of displayed lines; if some items occupy multiple lines, then
       fewer items may be scrolled than lines.

   scroll_to
          $scroller->scroll_to( $line, $itemidx, $itemline )

       Moves the display up or down so that display line $line contains line $itemline of item
       $itemidx. Any of these counts may be negative to count backwards from the display lines,
       items, or lines within the item.

   scroll_to_top
          $scroller->scroll_to_top( $itemidx, $itemline )

       Shortcut for "scroll_to" to set the top line of display; where $line is 0.  If $itemline
       is undefined, it will be passed as 0. If $itemidx is also undefined, it will be passed as
       0. Calling this method with no arguments, therefore scrolls to the very top of the
       display.

   scroll_to_bottom
          $scroller->scroll_to_bottom( $itemidx, $itemline )

       Shortcut for "scroll_to" to set the bottom line of display; where $line is -1. If
       $itemline is undefined, it will be passed as -1. If $itemidx is also undefined, it will be
       passed as -1. Calling this method with no arguments, therefore scrolls to the very bottom
       of the display.

   line2item
          $itemidx = $scroller->line2item( $line )

          ( $itemidx, $itemline ) = $scroller->line2item( $line )

       Returns the item index currently on display at the given line of the window.  In list
       context, also returns the line number within item. If no window has been set, or there is
       no item on display at that line, "undef" or an empty list are returned. $line may be
       negative to count backward from the last line on display; the last line taking "-1".

   item2line
          $line = $scroller->item2line( $itemidx, $itemline )

          ( $line, $offscreen ) = $scroller->item2line( $itemidx, $itemline, $count_offscreen )

       Returns the display line in the window of the given line of the item at the given index.
       $itemidx may be given negative, to count backwards from the last item. $itemline may be
       negative to count backward from the last line of the item.

       In list context, also returns a value describing the offscreen nature of the item. For
       items fully on display, this value is "undef". If the given line of the given item is not
       on display because it is scrolled off either the top or bottom of the window, this value
       will be either "above" or "below" respectively. If $count_offscreen is true, then the
       returned $line value will always be defined, even if the item line is offscreen. This will
       be negative for items "above", and a value equal or greater than the number of lines in
       the scroller's window for items "below".

   lines_above
          $count = $scroller->lines_above

       Returns the number of lines of content above the scrolled display.

   lines_below
          $count = $scroller->lines_below

       Returns the number of lines of content below the scrolled display.

   set_gen_top_indicator
   set_gen_bottom_indicator
          $scroller->set_gen_top_indicator( $method )

          $scroller->set_gen_bottom_indicator( $method )

       Accessors for the generators for the top and bottom indicator text. If set, each should be
       a CODE reference or method name on the scroller which will be invoked after any operation
       that changes the contents of the window, such as scrolling or adding or removing items. It
       should return a text string which, if defined and non-empty, will be displayed in an
       indicator window. This will be a small one-line window displayed at the top right or
       bottom right corner of the Scroller's window.

          $text = $scroller->$method()

       The ability to pass method names allows subclasses to easily implement custom logic as
       methods without having to capture a closure.

   update_indicators
          $scroller->update_indicators

       Calls any defined generators for indicator text, and updates the indicator windows with
       the returned text. This may be useful if the functions would return different text now.

TODO

       ·   Abstract away the "item storage model" out of the actual widget. Implement more
           storage models, such as database-driven ones.. more dynamic.
