Changing switch color
I'm trying to write a program where you can flip a switch, and it changes the color of the switch flipped. I made a GUI with three switches, and put the action as switch, but I don't know what code to put in the defined method switch to change the switches color once pressed.
import ui def switch (sender): print "hi" ui.load_view("tic tac toe.pyui").present("sheet")
Gack. I can't remember the Markdown for entering code. And I can't figure out how to delete until I do.
I'm not sure you can change a switch color but if you can it probably uses the view attribute tint_color. Basically you want to use sender.enabled to make the decision and probably set sender.tint_color to set the color. Everything inherits view so the full doc for any gadget is what is listed plus what is in class view.
tint_color has an underscore in it that Markdown is supressing. Look in the doc for view class for correct spelling. I hope my poor Markdown skills aren't making this too confusing.
I switched it from 3 switches to three buttons, and re-wrote the code as this:
# coding: utf-8 import speech import ui view = ui.View() def switch (sender): speech.say("hello") ui.View().tint_color = 1.00, 0.00, 0.00 ui.load_view("tic tac toe.pyui").present("sheet")
Is that what you meant, because nothing happened.
def switch(sender): speech.say('Hello, ' + sender.name) sender.tint_color = 1.00, 0.00, 0.00
Make sure that in your .pyui file the button actions are set to
import ui view = ui.View() red = ui.Switch(name='Red') green = ui.Switch(name='Green') blue = ui.Switch(name='Blue') red.tint_color = (1, 0, 0) green.tint_color = (0, 1, 0) blue.tint_color = (0, 0, 1) view.present('sheet') red.center = green.center = blue.center = view.center red.y -= 100 green.y -= 60 blue.y -= 20 view.add_subview(red) view.add_subview(green) view.add_subview(blue)
That did it! Thanks :-)
