gfx: Add size hint fill (EO)

Authored by YOhoho on Dec 3 2018, 11:51 PM.



If widget use both hint_align(HINT_FILL) and hint_max together, there is no way
to set to hint_align. See, elementary_test -to '' -
"Button with a quite long text." button. you can control button position
using "Box align" slider, but this is not proper implementation. When there are
two widget which have hint_align(HINT_FILL) and hint_max, those positions are
determined by box_align rather than hint_align. it means widget align cannot be
set individually.
To solve this problem, this patch add hint_fill property. in order to avoid
conflict with legacy API named evas_object_size_hint_fill_set(), it only works
for EO widgets(made by efl_add).
Also, EFL_GFX_SIZE_HINT_FILL is removed.


Test Plan

elementary_test -to ''
elementary_test -to 'efl.ui.table'

"EFL_GFX_SIZE_HINT_FILL" with "hint_align_set" still exists in code.

Please check the above by searching as follows.

grep -nrI "hint_align_set(" . | grep "\-1" | grep -v "evas_object_size_hint_align_set("

Fix wrong usecase.

There are some case that legacy widgets use "HINT_FILL(-1)" with "efl_gfx_size_hint_align_set". that cases won't be fixed.

Fix typo.

Could you please check the comments?


did you simply remove this line because fill_set(1, 1) is called in evas_object_main.c?


Is there any reason why obj->legacy.finzlied here?

If the conditional expression here, then error log is not displayed.

e.g. Eo *btn = efl_add(...);

efl_gfx_size_hint_align_set(btn, -1, -1);

Is there any reason why obj->legacy.finzlied here?

Yes, fill_set(1,1) is default values.


My fault. this condition will be removed. It means align_set allow to set negative values which might be 0 in a container except for -1. in order to avoid confusion of developer who is accustomed to legacy API(HINT_FILL), I'd like to keep -1 as special value implicitly. the special value(-1) is handled in a container.


This is needless condition..

Remove needless condition and handle -1 value.
