Padre::Current - A context object, for centralising the concept of what is "current"
The "Padre::Current" detectes and returns whatever is current. Use it whenever you need to do something with anything which might get a focus or be selectable otherwise All methods could be called as functions, methods or class methods.
"config" my $config = Padre::Current->config; Returns a Padre::Config object for the current document. Padre has three types of configuration: User-specific, host-specific and project-specific, this method returnsa config object which includes the current values - ne need to for you to care about which config is active and which has priority. "document" my $document = Padre::Current->document; Returns a Padre::Document object for the current document. "editor" my $editor = Padre::Current->editor; Returns a Padre::Editor object for the current editor (containing the current document). "filename" my $filename = Padre::Current->filename; Returns the filename of the current document. "ide" my $ide = Padre::Current->ide; Returns a Padre::Wx object of the current ide. "main" my $main = Padre::Current->main; Returns a Padre::Wx::Main object of the current ide. "notebook" my $main = Padre::Current->notebook; Returns a Padre::Wx::Notebook object of the current notebook. "project" my $main = Padre::Current->project; Returns a Padre::Project object of the current project. "text" my $main = Padre::Current->text; Returns the current selection (selected text in the current document). "title" my $main = Padre::Current->title; Returns the title of the current editor window.
Padre::Current - convenient access to current objects within Padre
my $main = Padre::Current->main; # ...
Padre uses lots of objects from different classes. And one needs to have access to the current object of this sort or this other to do whatever is need at the time. Instead of poking directly with the various classes to find the object you need, "Padre::Current" provides a bunch of handy methods to retrieve whatever current object you need.
new # Vanilla constructor Padre::Current->new; # Seed the object with some context Padre::Current->new( document => $document ); The "new" constructor creates a new context object, it optionally takes one or more named parameters which should be any context the caller is aware of before he calls the constructor. Providing this seed context allows the context object to derive parts of the current context from other parts, without the need to fall back to the last-resort "Padre->ide" singleton-fetching method. Many objects in Padre that are considered to be part of them context will have a "current" method which automatically creates the context object with it as a seed. Returns a new Padre::Current object. "ide" Return the Padre singleton for the IDE instance. "config" Returns the current Padre::Config configuration object for the IDE. "main" Returns the Padre::Wx::Main object for the main window. "notebook" Returns the Padre::Wx::Notebook object for the main window. "document" Returns the active Padre::Document document object. "editor" Returns the Padre::Editor editor object for the active document. "filename" Returns the file name of the active document, if it has one. "title" Return the title of current editor window. "project" Return the "Padre::Project" project object for the active document. "text" Returns the selected text, or a null string if nothing is selected.
