       "Tickit::Widget::Static" - a widget displaying static text


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

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

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


       This class provides a widget which displays a single piece of static text. The text may
       contain more than one line, separated by linefeed ("\n") characters.  No other control
       sequences are allowed in the string.


       The default style pen is used as the widget pen.

       Note that while the widget pen is mutable and changes to it will result in immediate
       redrawing, any changes made will be lost if the widget style is changed.


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

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

       text => STRING
               The text to display

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

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

       on_click => CODE
               Optional. Defaults to "undef" if unspecified.

       For more details see the accessors below.


   $text = $static->text
   $static->set_text( $text )
       Accessor for "text" property; the actual text on display in the widget

   $align = $static->align
   $static->set_align( $align )
       Accessor for horizontal alignment value.

       Gives a value in the range from 0.0 to 1.0 to align the text display within the window. If
       the window is larger than the width of the text, it will be aligned according to this
       value; with 0.0 on the left, 1.0 on the right, and other values inbetween.
