A destructor is present on this object, but not explicitly documented in the source.
The parameter this switch is linked with.
This method is called for each item in the drawlist that was visible and has a dirty Raw layer. This is called after compositing, starting from the buffer output by the Compositor.
TODO: useless until we have resizeable UIs. Meant to be overriden almost everytime for custom behaviour. Default behaviour is to span the whole area and reflow children. Any layout algorithm is up to you. Like in the DOM, children elements don't need to be inside _position of their parent.
Forces the position of the element. It is typically used in the parent reflow() method IMPORTANT: As of today you are not allowed to assign a position outside the extent of
Removes a child (but does not destroy it, you take back the ownership of it). Useful for creating dynamic UI's. MAYDO: there are restrictions for where this is allowed. Find them.
Mark this element as wholly dirty.
Mark a part of the element dirty. This part must be a subrect of its _position.
Appends the Elements that should be drawn, in order. You should empty it before calling this function. Everything visible get into the draw list, but that doesn't mean they will get drawn if they don't overlap with a dirty area.
Raw layer draw method. This gives you 1 surface cropped by _position for drawing. Note that you are not forced to draw all to the surfacs at all.
PBR layer draw method. This gives you 3 surfaces cropped by _position for drawing. Note that you are not forced to draw all to the surfaces at all, in which case the below UIElement will be displayed.
Called periodically for every UIElement. Override this to create animations. Using setDirty there allows to redraw an element continuously (like a meter or an animated object). Warning: Summing dt will not lead to a time that increase like time. time can go backwards if the window was reopen. time is guaranteed to increase as fast as system time but is not synced to audio time.
Parent element. Following this chain gets to the root element.
Position is the graphical extent of the element, or something larger. An UIElement is not allowed though to draw further than its _position. For efficiency it's best to keep _position as small as feasible.
The list of children UI elements.
If _visible is false, neither the Element nor its children are drawn.
Flags, for now immutable
Higher z-order = above other UIElement. By default, every UIElement have the same z-order. Because the sort is stable, tree traversal order is the default order (depth first).
Called when a parameter value was changed, from an UI control or through the host. You'll probably want to call setDirtyWhole() or setDirty() in it to make the graphics respond to host changing a parameter.
Called when a parameter value _starts_ being changed due to an UI element.
Called when a parameter value _stops_ being changed.
