Creating a Flex AIR text editor: Part 32

In this tutorial we will add support for undoing and redoing cut and paste operations.

The Cut and Paste operations are made from scratch in our application, so naturally the built in undo and redo functions don't work with them. No worries, though! The UndoManager class is very versatile, we can create our own operation classes for practically anything. Let's do this.

Create a new class file, InsertOperation.as. It's a class which implements the IOperation interface and has 3 functions - the constructor, performUndo() and performRedo(). When the operation is added to the flow, it stays there and when needed, its performUndo and performRedo functions are called, where we write the code that we want to be executed when the operation should be undone or redone.

Create 6 private variables - previousText, currentText, textArea, previousSelectedActive, previousSelectedAnchor and currentRange.

The variables are going to store the text values and the selection values of the previous and current (updated/fresh/new) text data, as well as a reference to the text area itself. In the constructor, we capture these values from the parameter and set them to the variables.

We use the performUndo() function to set the text area's text value to the previous text (the one that was there before the operation was executed) and select the previous selected range. On preformRedo(), we set the text value to the current value and select the new selection range.

package  {

import flashx.undo.IOperation;
import spark.components.TextArea;

public class InsertOperation implements IOperation {
 
private var previousText:String;
private var currentText:String;
private var textArea:TextArea;
private var previousSelectedActive:int;
private var previousSelectedAnchor:int;
private var currentRange:int;
 
public function InsertOperation(_previousText:String, _currentText:String, _textArea:TextArea, _previousSelectedActive:int, _previousSelectedAnchor:int, _currentRange:int) {
previousText = _previousText;
currentText = _currentText;
textArea = _textArea;
previousSelectedActive = _previousSelectedActive;
previousSelectedAnchor = _previousSelectedAnchor;
currentRange = _currentRange;
}
 
public function performUndo():void {
textArea.text = previousText;
textArea.selectRange(previousSelectedAnchor, previousSelectedActive);
}
 
public function performRedo():void {
textArea.text = currentText;
textArea.selectRange(currentRange, currentRange);
}
}
}

Go to the main file, find insertText function. Here we will add a few lines of code that will send an InsertOperation instance to the undoManager operation flow, while passing all the necessary data as the parameters. Also, call textChange() function in the end of insertText():

private function insertText(str:String):void {
var substrPositions:int = textArea.selectionActivePosition - textArea.selectionAnchorPosition;
var oldSel1:int = (substrPositions>0)?(textArea.selectionAnchorPosition):(textArea.selectionActivePosition);
var oldSel2:int = (substrPositions<0)?(textArea.selectionAnchorPosition):(textArea.selectionActivePosition);
var preText:String = textArea.text.substring(0, oldSel1);
var postText:String = textArea.text.substring(oldSel2);
var newSelectRange:int = preText.length + str.length;
var newText:String = preText + str + postText;

var operation:InsertOperation = new InsertOperation(textArea.text, newText, textArea, textArea.selectionActivePosition, textArea.selectionAnchorPosition, newSelectRange);
undoManager.pushUndo(operation);

textArea.text = newText;
textArea.selectRange(newSelectRange, newSelectRange);
textChange();
}

We now need to update doUndo() and doRedo(). When we perform the Undo operation, we need to add the operation we've undone to the redo flow, and otherwise in the doRedo function:

private function doUndo():void {
undoManager.pushRedo(undoManager.peekUndo());
undoManager.undo();
textChange();
}

private function doRedo():void {
undoManager.pushUndo(undoManager.peekRedo());
undoManager.redo();
textChange();
}

However, this is only required to do with the new InsertOperation operation types, becuase otherwise it is done by default anyway. Because of this, we can now undo and redo cuts and pastes, but, guess what! The normal text changes can't be undone and redone like you think they'd be.

This is a pretty common thing in programming - if you have 10 bugs in the code, fix one, and now you have 15 bugs in the code...

For now, we can go ahead and remove the line that is responsible for setting our undo manager object as the interaction manager of the text area in the init() function, leaving just this:

// Undo management
undoManager = new UndoManager();

One final thing that we'll do today is set focus to the text area in the textChange() function, because it sometimes goes off:

private function textChange():void{
canUndo = undoManager.canUndo();
canRedo = undoManager.canRedo();
focusManager.setFocus(textArea);
}
