SOB – d – Object – Labels

This executable supports a label SOB.

In many ways it is like a button:

  • it can respond to mouse clicks,
  • you can get/set its displayed text
  • you can get/set its colour

The following script will a simple label and respond to mouse clicks by changing its colour and its text (title).

newscript
dim myWindow = sob (0, "add","window","Hello World")
function ClickMyWindow ( sobid )
sob ( myWindow, "delete")
quit
End function
sob ( myWindow , "ON" , "CLICK" , "ClickMyWindow" )
dim myMenuBar = sob (myWindow , "add" , "menu" , "bar" )
dim myMenuFile = sob (myMenuBar , "add" , "menu" , "Horizontal" , "File" )
dim myFileExit = sob ( myMenuFile , "add" , "menu" , "Vertical" , "Exit" )
sob ( myFileExit , "ON" , "CLICK" , "ClickMyWindow")
' --------------------
dim myContainer = sob ( myWindow , "add" , "CONTAINER" , "COLUMN" , 3)

' --------------------
dim myLabel = sob ( myContainer, "add" , "LABEL" , " A label " )
function Press ( sobid )

dim newTitle
if ( sob(sobid , "GET", "RGB") == rgb(255,255,0) ) then
sob(sobid , "SET", "RGB" , rgb( 0,150,255) )
newTitle ="Now I am blue"
ELSE
sob(sobid , "SET", "RGB" , rgb(255,255,0) )
newTitle ="Now I am yellow"
End IF
sob(sobid, "SET","TITLE", newTitle)
End function

sob ( myLabel , "ON" , "CLICK" , "Press")
