Creating a Flex AIR text editor: Part 25

In this tutorial we will start working on another element of the interface which will count and enumerate lines in the text area.

This is what it is going to look like:



The column is a text field of a fixed width (for now), which is populated by characters by first checking how many lines there are in total and how many lines are displayed in the counter right now. If these two values are different, then we need to update the line enumeration - recount the lines and repopulate the text field.

This text field should also have the same font and size as the main text area, so that the lines match.

Another important thing is that we have to make it possible to toggle this line counter bar through the native menu, moreover, the bar will only be visible when the word wrapping is turned off. When wrapping is on, there are no lines and no columns in the text, so we don't really have anything to show.

By the end of this tutorial we will have a working, save-able and load-able line counting bar, which is updated when changing between tabs, when changing fonts, closing tabs, etc. However, it will not scroll and the width will be fixed, but these things will be improved in the next part.

Let's declare the new variables that we will be using in this part.

[Bindable]
private var pref_linecount:Boolean = true;

[Bindable]
private var textX:Number;

[Bindable]
private var tabWidth:Number;

[Bindable]
private var lineCountWidth:Number = 40;
[Bindable]
private var lineNumbers:String = "1";
[Bindable]
private var lineDisplayedNum:int = 1;

The pref_linecount variable is needed to toggle the bar. The textX variable didn't exist before, because the x was always 0. Because it will not be so from now on, we need to include this variable. We used textWidth for tabBar width before, now we will use tabWidth, because the width of the tabbar and textarea will not always be the same.

The lineCountWidth variable is the fixed width of the text area. The lineNumbers variable stores the text value for the bar text area. The lineDisplayedNum is a number that represents the number of lines that are shown on the bar right now.

First let's add the native menu item for toggling the pref_linecount variable and manage saving it and loading it. The procedure is already familiar to us. First add it to the XML:

<fx:XML id="windowMenu">
<root>
<menuitem label="File">
<menuitem label="New" key="n" controlKey="true" />
<menuitem label="Open" key="o" controlKey="true" />
</menuitem>
<menuitem label="Edit">
<menuitem label="Cut" key="x" controlKey="true" />
<menuitem label="Copy" key="c" controlKey="true" />
<menuitem label="Paste" key="v" controlKey="true" />
<menuitem type="separator"/>
<menuitem label="Select all" key="a" controlKey="true" />
</menuitem>
<menuitem label="Settings">
<menuitem label="Word wrap" type="check" toggled="{pref_wrap}" />
<menuitem label="Font..."/>
</menuitem>
<menuitem label="View">
<menuitem label="Tool bar" type="check" toggled="{pref_toolbar}" />
<menuitem label="Status bar" type="check" toggled="{pref_status}" />
<menuitem label="Line count" type="check" toggled="{pref_linecount}" />
<menuitem label="Side pane" type="check" toggled="{pref_sidepane}" />
</menuitem>
</root>
</fx:XML>

Now update the preferences part in the init function.

Note 1: the wrap and linecount variables must be different by default.

Note 2: the first time running this code you will need to include "preferences.data.firsttime = null;" to reset the shared object.

// Set preferences if loaded for the first time
if (preferences.data.firsttime == null) {
preferences.data.firsttime = true;
preferences.data.wrap = false;
preferences.data.status = true;
preferences.data.toolbar = true;
preferences.data.sidepane = true;
preferences.data.linecount = true;
preferences.data.fontsettings = {fontfamily:"Lucida Console", fontsize:14, fontstyle:"normal", fontweight:"normal", fontcolor:0x000000, bgcolor:0xffffff};
preferences.flush();
}

// Set preferences loaded from local storage
pref_wrap = preferences.data.wrap;
pref_status = preferences.data.status;
pref_toolbar = preferences.data.toolbar;
pref_sidepane = preferences.data.sidepane;
pref_fontsettings = preferences.data.fontsettings;
pref_linecount = preferences.data.linecount;

Add this line to the menuSelect function:

(evt.item.@label == "Line count")?(pref_linecount = !pref_linecount):(void);

Update savePreferences():

private function savePreferences():void {
preferences.data.wrap = pref_wrap;
preferences.data.status = pref_status;
preferences.data.toolbar = pref_toolbar;
preferences.data.fontsettings = pref_fontsettings;
preferences.data.sidepane = pref_sidepane;
preferences.data.linecount = pref_linecount;
preferences.flush();
}

Now let's update the menuSelect function again - let's add a conditional which checks if pref_wrap is true. If it is, set linecount to false.

Also, call countLines() function (we'll create it later in the tutorial):

private function menuSelect(evt:FlexNativeMenuEvent):void {
(evt.item.@label == "New")?(doNew()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Word wrap")?(pref_wrap = !pref_wrap):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Cut")?(doCut()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Copy")?(doCopy()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Paste")?(doPaste()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Select all")?(doSelectall()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Status bar")?(pref_status = !pref_status):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Tool bar")?(pref_toolbar = !pref_toolbar):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Side pane")?(pref_sidepane = !pref_sidepane):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Line count")?(pref_linecount = !pref_linecount):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Font...")?(doFont()):(void);
savePreferences();
updateStatus();
if (pref_wrap) {
pref_linecount = false;
}
updateTextSize();
countLines();
}

The countLines() function will be used to update the bar. We need to call it every time we change the value of the text area.

Now, let's update the updateTextSize() function. We need to manage the new textX variable, update the textWidth variable and manage tabWidth. The function after the changes:

private function menuSelect(evt:FlexNativeMenuEvent):void {
(evt.item.@label == "New")?(doNew()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Word wrap")?(pref_wrap = !pref_wrap):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Cut")?(doCut()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Copy")?(doCopy()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Paste")?(doPaste()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Select all")?(doSelectall()):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Status bar")?(pref_status = !pref_status):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Tool bar")?(pref_toolbar = !pref_toolbar):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Side pane")?(pref_sidepane = !pref_sidepane):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Line count")?(pref_linecount = !pref_linecount):(void);
(evt.item.@label == "Font...")?(doFont()):(void);
savePreferences();
updateStatus();
if (pref_wrap) {
pref_linecount = false;
}
updateTextSize();
countLines();
}

Go to the removeTab() function and call the countLines() function in the end (while we're at it):

private function removeTab(index:int):void {
// if this is the last tab, create a new empty tab
if (tabData.length == 1) {
tabData.addItem( { title:"Untitled", textData:"", saved:false } );
}
statusMessage = "[ " + new Date().toLocaleTimeString() + " ] Tab closed: " + tabData[index].title;
updateStatus();
tabData.removeItemAt(index);
tabSelectedIndex = tabBar.selectedIndex;
previousIndex = tabSelectedIndex;
textArea.text = tabData[tabSelectedIndex].textData;
textArea.selectRange(tabData[tabSelectedIndex].selectedAnchor, tabData[tabSelectedIndex].selectedActive);
if (closeAfterConfirm && tabsToClose == 0) {
FlexGlobals.topLevelApplication.close();
}
countLines();
}

Now let's create the text area bar as a component.

First update the textArea text area so that it calls the countLines() function on change event plus what we already have, and set its x property to textX:

<s:TextArea id="textArea" width="{textWidth}" height="{textHeight}" y="{textY}" x="{textX}" borderVisible="false" lineBreak="{(pref_wrap)?('toFit'):('explicit')}"  click="cursorFix(); updateStatus();" change="updateStatus(); countLines();" keyDown="updateStatus();"/>

Now update the tabbar by settings its width to tabWidth instead of textWidth:

<custom:CustomTabBar id="tabBar" dataProvider="{tabData}" width="{tabWidth}" y="{tabY}" itemRenderer="CustomTab" height="22" tabClose="onTabClose(event);" change="tabChange('tabbar');" selectedIndex="{tabSelectedIndex}"/>

Create a new TextArea object, give it an id of lineCount. Set its width to lineCountWidth, text to lineNumbers, visible to pref_linecount, height to textHeight, y to textY, editable, selectable and mouseEnabled to false and textAlign to right.

<s:TextArea id="lineCount" width="{lineCountWidth}" text="{lineNumbers}" visible="{pref_linecount}" height="{textHeight}" y="{textY}" editable="false" selectable="false" mouseEnabled="false" textAlign="right"/>

Now - the countLines function we've been talking about! Here we need to check if the linecount bar is toggled on and if word wrapping is off. If the conditions are met, count total lines and compare them to the lines currently displayed on the bar. If they do not match, recount and reenumerate the lines using a updateLineCount() function, which simply fills the text area with text:

private function countLines():void {
if (pref_linecount && !pref_wrap) {
var totalLines:int = textArea.text.split("\n").length;
if (totalLines != lineDisplayedNum) {
updateLineCount(totalLines);
lineDisplayedNum = totalLines;
}
}
}

private function updateLineCount(total:int):void {
lineNumbers = "";
for (var i:int = 1; i < (total + 1); i++) {
lineNumbers += i + "\n";
}
}

As I said before, we want the font settings to be the same in the textArea and in the lineCount area:

private function updateFonts():void{
textArea.setStyle("fontFamily", pref_fontsettings.fontfamily);
textArea.setStyle("fontSize", pref_fontsettings.fontsize);
textArea.setStyle("fontStyle", pref_fontsettings.fontstyle);
textArea.setStyle("fontWeight", pref_fontsettings.fontweight);
textArea.setStyle("color", pref_fontsettings.fontcolor);
textArea.setStyle("contentBackgroundColor", pref_fontsettings.bgcolor);

lineCount.setStyle("fontFamily", pref_fontsettings.fontfamily);
lineCount.setStyle("fontSize", pref_fontsettings.fontsize);
lineCount.setStyle("fontStyle", pref_fontsettings.fontstyle);
lineCount.setStyle("fontWeight", pref_fontsettings.fontweight);
lineCount.setStyle("color", pref_fontsettings.fontcolor);
lineCount.setStyle("contentBackgroundColor", pref_fontsettings.bgcolor);
}
