mwseMCMComponent⚓︎

The base class for all MCM components, such as categories and settings. The basic component has a block UI element that holds a label. This is used to implement the following components:

Properties⚓︎

childIndent⚓︎

The left padding size in pixels. Used on all the child components.

Returns:

  • result (integer, nil)

childSpacing⚓︎

The bottom border size in pixels. Used on all the child components.

Returns:

  • result (integer, nil)

class⚓︎

Every MCM component has a unique string indentifier specific to that component. These strings are the filename of the file implementing a component. These are found in core\\mcm\\components.

Returns:

  • result (string)

componentType⚓︎

For mwseMCMComponent this is set to "Component".

Returns:

  • result (string)

createContentsContainer⚓︎

This method creates the contents of a component. Not every component implements this method.

elements⚓︎

This dictionary holds all the UI elements of the Component, for easy access.

Returns:


indent⚓︎

The left padding size in pixels. Only used if the childIndent isn't set on the parent component.

Returns:

  • result (integer)

inGameOnly⚓︎

If true, then this component will be disabled when on the main menu.

Returns:

  • result (boolean)

label⚓︎

The text of the component. Not all component types have a label.

Returns:

  • result (string)

mouseOvers⚓︎

This array of UI elements will have an event handler registered to trigger "MCM:MouseOver" event. For more info, see registerMouseOverElements method.

Returns:


paddingBottom⚓︎

Returns:

  • result (integer)

Methods⚓︎

checkDisabled⚓︎

Returns true if the component should be disabled.

Componets with a variable:

  • True if the Component's variable has inGameOnly field set to true, and the game is on the main menu. For components with multiple subcomponent (Category), the check is done for each subcomponent.

Components without a variable:

  • True if the Component's inGameOnly field is set to true, and the game is on the main menu.
local result = myObject:checkDisabled()

Returns:

  • result (boolean)

create⚓︎

This method creates the UI elements that comprise a component. To call this method, the mwseMCMComponent-derived type needs to have createContentsContainer method implemented.

myObject:create(parentBlock)

Parameters:


createInnerContainer⚓︎

Creates component's innerContainer UI element inside given parentBlock, and stores it in the self.elements.innerContainer. The innerContainer will add self.indent additional padding on the left if the component has a label.

myObject:createInnerContainer(parentBlock)

Parameters:


createLabel⚓︎

Creates component's label UI element.

First, it calls self:createLabelBlock and creates the label element inside new labelBlock. Stores both new UI elements in the self.elements and self.mouseOvers.

myObject:createLabel(parentBlock)

Parameters:


createLabelBlock⚓︎

Creates component's labelBlock UI element inside given parentBlock, and stores it in the self.elements.labelBlock and self.mouseOvers.

myObject:createLabelBlock(parentBlock)

Parameters:


createOuterContainer⚓︎

Creates component's outerContainer UI element inside given parentBlock, and stores it in the self.elements.outerContainer and self.mouseOvers. The outerContainer holds all the other UI elements that comprise a component.

myObject:createOuterContainer(parentBlock)

Parameters:


disable⚓︎

This method disables the component's UI elements. That includes: changing the color of the UI elements to the tes3.palette.disabledColor and setting button widget state to tes3.uiState.disabled.

myObject:disable()

enable⚓︎

Enables the component's UI elements. That includes: changing the color of the UI elements to the tes3.palette.normalColor and registering handlers for tes3.uiEvent.mouseClick for buttons.

myObject:enable()

getComponent⚓︎
