Prima::ImageDialog(3) User Contributed Perl DocumentationPrima::ImageDialog(3)

       Prima::ImageDialog - file open and save dialogs.

       The module provides dialogs specially adjusted for image	loading	and

       Provides	a preview feature, allowing the	user to	view the image file
       before loading, and the selection of a frame index for the multi-framed
       image files.  Instead of	"execute" call,	the load method	is used	to
       invoke the dialog and returns the loaded	image as a "Prima::Image"
       object.	The loaded object by default contains "{extras}" hash variable
       set, which contains extra information returned by the loader. See
       Prima::image-load for more information.

	       my $dlg = Prima::ImageOpenDialog-> create;
	       my $img = $dlg->	load;
	       return unless $img;
	       print "$_:$img->{extras}->{$_}\n" for sort keys %{$img->	{extras}};

       preview BOOLEAN
	   Selects if the preview functionality	is active.  The	user can
	   switch it on	and off	interactively.

	   Default value: 1

       load %PROFILE
	   Executes the	dialog,	and, if	successful, loads the image file and
	   frame selected by the user. Returns the loaded image	as a
	   "Prima::Image" object.  PROFILE is a	hash, passed to
	   "Prima::Image::load"	method.	In particular, it can be used to
	   disable the default loading of extra	information in "{extras}"
	   variable, or	to specify a non-default loading option.  For example,
	   "{extras}->{className} = 'Prima::Icon'" would return	the loaded
	   image as an icon object. See	Prima::image-load for more.

	   "load" can report progressive image loading to the caller, and/or
	   to an instance of "Prima::ImageViewer", if desired. If either (or
	   both) "onHeaderReady" and "onDataReady" notifications are
	   specified, these are	called from the	respective event handlers of
	   the image being loaded ( see	"Loading with progress indicator" in
	   Prima::image-load for details).  If profile key "progressViewer" is
	   supplied, its value is treated as a "Prima::ImageViewer" instance,
	   and it is used to display image loading progress. See
	   "watch_load_progress" in Prima::ImageViewer.

       HeaderReady IMAGE
	   See "HeaderReady" in	Prima::Image.

       DataReady IMAGE,	X, Y, WIDTH, HEIGHT
	   See "DataReady" in Prima::Image.

       Provides	a save dialog where the	user can select	image format, the bit
       depth and other format-specific options.	The format-specific options
       can be set if a dialog for the file format is provided.	The standard
       toolkit dialogs reside under in "Prima::Image" namespace, in
       Prima/Image subdirectory. For example, "Prima::Image::gif" provides the
       selection of transparency color,	and "Prima::Image::jpeg" the image
       quality control.	If the image passed to the image property contains
       "{extras}" variable, the	data are read and used as the default values.
       In particular, "{extras}->-{codecID}" field, responsible	for the	file
       format, if present, affects the default file format selection.

	       my $dlg = Prima::ImageSaveDialog-> create;
	       return unless $dlg-> save( $image );
	       print "saved as ", $dlg-> fileName, "\n";

       image IMAGE
	   Selects the image to	be saved. This property	is to be used for the
	   standard invocation of dialog, via "execute". It is not needed when
	   the execution and saving is invoked via save	method.

       save IMAGE, %PROFILE
	   Invokes the dialog, and, if the execution was successful, saves the
	   IMAGE according to the user selection and PROFILE hash.  PROFILE is
	   not used for	the default options, but is passed directly to
	   "Prima::Image::save"	call, possibly overriding selection of the
	   user.  Returns 1 in case of success,	0 in case of error.  If	the
	   error occurs, the user is notified before the method	returns.
