Custom ui.class a ui.view or loaded from a pyui file [share] but I am not happy
This works, sort of...one class that can either be a loaded pyui file or a class inherited from ui.View. It works. But not one step... I got so close but ran out of ideas. I can see the problem, it's in the comments of the code. Maybe there is such a simple solution... But seems hopeless to me :(
Well it is one step. But, you have to create your ui.View inside the new method. So really it does work. But limiting in my mind...
I think it's still good, but it's killing me, I can't get that last step.
class PanelMorphic(ui.View): def __init__(self, **kwargs): # if we are here, creating a ui.View in code # BUT... with the new, i cant get in here. # tried so many differnt ways ;( print 'IN __INIT__()' def __new__(self, *args, **kwargs): # check kwargs to see if we were passed a pyui_file if not kwargs.get('pyui_file', False): cls = ui.View(*args, **kwargs) ''' this sort of COOL. But i cant work out how to call the __init__ or another methid in the class until we return from here. i can build up the ui.View in here, but not ideal. typically a lot of code to build a ui.View. would be great if we could call a method in here. Also, could call a method to build the ui.View after the object is created. Which us probably what i will do if i can solve it. But its so close.... its killing me inside but i have trued so many ways. The basic crux of the matter as far as i can see, until this method returns, there is no PanelMorphic object. if you try to create one, oh opps, you are in the new again. what come first the chicken or the egg... ''' # cant work out a way to do this.... # would love if someone could show me # the line below fails... # self._make_view_in_code_(*args, **kwargs) return cls else: cls = ui.load_view(kwargs.get('pyui_file', False)) cls['tb_countries'].data_source.items = _country_list cls['seg'].segments = string.ascii_uppercase return cls def _make_view_in_code_(self, *args, **kwargs): print 'IN _make_view_in_code_()' v = PanelMorphic(frame = (0,0, 500, 500), background_color = 'navy')) v = PanelMorphic(pyui_file = 'Countries')
See my other reply: make sure your loaded pyui return PanelMorphic as the CustomClass. init gets called on the class of whatever new returns.
