In this article we will see how we can select a word in 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. For the given point caret try to select the word which is nearest to the given point
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
select_word(x, y)method with the caret object
Syntax : caret.select_to_point(x, y)
Argument : It takes two integer as argument
Return : It returns None
Below is the implementation
