PYGLET – Getting Style of Caret

  • Last Updated : 09 Jun, 2021

In this article we will see how we can get style of caret in PYGLET module in python. Pyglet is easy to use but powerful library for developing visually rich GUI applications like games, multimedia etc. A window is a “heavyweight” object occupying operating system resources. Windows may appear as floating regions or can be set to fill an entire screen (fullscreen). Caret is basically visible text insertion marker for pyglet.text.layout.IncrementalTextLayout. The caret is drawn as a single vertical bar at the document position on a text layout object. If mark is not None, it gives the unmoving end of the current text selection. Style refer to the color, or font of the caret.

We can create a window and caret with the help of commands given below 

# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)

# creating a caret
caret = pyglet.text.caret.Caret(layout, color=(255, 255, 255))

In order to create window we use get_style method with the caret object
Syntax : caret.get_style(attribute)
Argument : It takes string as argument
Return : It returns object 
 

Below is the implementation  

Python3




# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
import pyglet.window.key
 
# width of window
width = 500
 
# height of window
height = 500
 
# caption i.e title of the window
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
 
# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)
 
# text
text = "Welcome to GeeksforGeeks"
 
# batch object
batch = pyglet.graphics.Batch()
 
# creating document
document = pyglet.text.document.FormattedDocument(text)
 
# setting style to the document
document.set_style(0, len(document.text), dict(font_name ='Arial', font_size = 16, color =(255, 255, 255, 255)))
 
# creating a incremental text layout
layout = pyglet.text.layout.IncrementalTextLayout(document, 400, 50, batch = batch)
 
# creating a caret
caret = pyglet.text.caret.Caret(layout, color =(255, 255, 255))
 
# caret to window push handlers
# window.push_handlers(caret)
 
# on draw event
@window.event
def on_draw():
     
    # clear the window
    window.clear()
     
    # draw the batch
    batch.draw()
     
    # window push handlers
    window.push_handlers(caret)
 
     
# key press event   
@window.event
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
 
    # key "C" get press
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.C:
         
        # closing the window
        window.close()
     
 
# image for icon
img = image = pyglet.resource.image("logo.png")
 
# setting image as icon
window.set_icon(img)
 
# importing pyglet module
import pyglet
import pyglet.window.key
 
# width of window
width = 500
 
# height of window
height = 500
 
# caption i.e title of the window
title = "Geeksforgeeks"
 
# creating a window
window = pyglet.window.Window(width, height, title)
 
# text
text = "Welcome to GeeksforGeeks"
 
# batch object
batch = pyglet.graphics.Batch()
 
# creating document
document = pyglet.text.document.FormattedDocument(text)
 
# setting style to the document
document.set_style(0, len(document.text), dict(font_name ='Arial', font_size = 16, color =(255, 255, 255, 255)))
 
# creating a incremental text layout
layout = pyglet.text.layout.IncrementalTextLayout(document, 400, 50, batch = batch)
 
# creating a caret
caret = pyglet.text.caret.Caret(layout, color =(255, 255, 255))
 
# caret to window push handlers
window.push_handlers(caret)
 
caret.move_to_point(100, 100)
 
# on draw event
@window.event
def on_draw():
     
    # clear the window
    window.clear()
     
    # draw the batch
    batch.draw()
     
    # caret to window push handlers
    window.push_handlers(caret)
 
     
# key press event   
@window.event
def on_key_press(symbol, modifier):
 
    # key "C" get press
    if symbol == pyglet.window.key.C:
         
        # closing the window
        # window.close()
        pass
     
 
# image for icon
img = image = pyglet.resource.image("logo.png")
 
# setting image as icon
window.set_icon(img)
 
  
# getting caret color style
value = caret.get_style("color")
 
# printing value
print("Color Style : " + str(value))
 
# start running the application
pyglet.app.run()
            

Output : 
 

 

Color Style : (255, 255, 255, 255)
