gtree: constructor for widget to display heirarchical data

Description Usage Arguments Details Examples

Description

The gtree widget is used to present structured heirarchical data. This data may be specified through a data frame with some accompanying columns by which to split the data, or dynamically through a function (offspring).

generic for toolkit dispatch

For a GTree object, svalue refers to the path specified as a vector of keys or (if INDEX=TRUE) by an integer vector of offspring positions. The drop argument is used to indicate if the terminus of the path is returned or the entire path, defaults=TRUE. To get the data associated with a row, use the [ method.

For a GTree object, svalue refers to the path specified as a vector of keys . For the assignment method, one assigns by index. That is svalue(tr, index=TRUE) <- svalue(tr, index=TRUE) should not change the state of the widget. (The index=TRUE argument is the case for setting, but not getting.)

The [ method is used to return the data associated with a selected row. The svalue method returns the path or its endpoint, the [ method returns the row data associated with the path.

The update method for GTree recomputes the base nodes, then reopens the given node if still available

## S3 method for class 'GTree'
update(object, ...)

Arguments

x

Data frame. Optional, if given specify INDICES value to split data into heirarchical data structure

INDICES

Integers or column names, referring to columns of x. Used to form heirarchical structure. Order is important.

offspring

function. A function passed values path and data, the latter from offspring.data. The path is the current position of the parent item using the named keys from the chosen column.

offspring.data

Passed to second argument of offspring function. Used to parameterize a function call.

chosen.col

integer or one of column names of data frame returned by offspring. The chosen column gives the key and value of the path.

offspring.col

integer or column name. Points to column containing logical values indicating if a row has offspring.

icon.col

integer of one of the column names of the data frame. If provided (non-NULL), then this column should provide a stock icon name to be placed in the row for the given data.

tooltip.col

integer or one of the column names of the data frame. If provided (non-NULL), then the row for this item will have a tooltip given by the pointed to value.

multiple

logical. Is multiple selection allowed?

handler

A handler assigned to the default change signal. Handlers are called when some event triggers a widget to emit a signal. For each widget some default signal is assumed, and handlers may be assigned to that through addHandlerChanged or at construction time. Handlers are functions whose first argument, h in the documentation, is a list with atleast two components obj, referring to the object emitting the signal and action, which passes in user-specified data to parameterize the function call.

Handlers may also be added via addHandlerXXX methods for the widgets, where XXX indicates the signal, with a default signal mapped to addHandlerChanged (cf. addHandler for a listing). These methods pass back a handler ID that can be used with blockHandler and unblockHandler to suppress temporarily the calling of the handler.

action

User supplied data passed to the handler when it is called

container

A parent container. When a widget is created it can be incorporated into the widget heirarchy by passing in a parent container at construction time. (For some toolkits this is not optional, e.g. gWidgets2tcltk or gWidgets2WWW2.)

...

passed to update method

toolkit

Each widget constructor is passed in the toolkit it will use. This is typically done using the default, which will lookup the toolkit through guiToolkit.

obj

object

index

index

drop

do we return tip or path

value

vector of indices

i

ignored

j

ignored

object

object to update

Details

In the former case, the data frame is split up by the columns specified by INDICES. The first index is used to give the intial branches, the second index the second, etc. The end leaves are the data associated with a given path, with key given by that column specified by chosen.col

For the latter case, the "path" of the current node (the node and its ancestors) is passed to the offspring function which computes the next level in the heirarchy. This level is specified through a data frame. This data frame has special columns. The chosen.col specifies which column is used as the key in the path, the icon.col (when given) points to a stock icon name to decorate the column. Similarly, the tooltip.columns. The fact that a row in the data frame has offspring is specified through the offspring.col column, again specifed by index or column name.
