WName(x)
WValue(x)
WValue(x) <-  value
WtoText(x)
WfromText(x)
WcanEdit(x)
WbuttonText(x)
WbuttonFun(x)
WwList(x)
WwList <- value
WLValue(x, index)
WLValue(x, index) <- value
WRButtons(x)
WpreFun(x)
WpostFun(x)
WEnd(x)

Arguments

x list of lists with a Name, Value, toText, fromText, canEdit, buttonText, buttonFun, preFun, postFun element.
index integer or character string as an index or name for the list in the first list of a list of lists for a widget.
value An R data type that is going to be used to update the value.

WtoText(x) returns the toText element of x. WfromText(x) returns the fromText element of x. WcanEdit(x) returns the canEdit element of x.

WbuttonText(x) returns the buttonText element of x. WbuttonFun(x) returns the buttonFun element of x. WwList(x) returns the wList element of x. WwList <- value will update the wList element of a Widget list with value.

WLValue(x, index) returns a list indicated by the index in the wList of a widget list. WLValue(x, index) <- value will update indicated by the index in the wList of a widget list with the value.

WpreFun(x) returns the preFun element of x. WpostFun(x) returns the post element of x. WEnd(x) returns the end element of x.

Examples

# Create the list of lists
pW1 <- list(Name="AAA", Value="bbb",
            toText = function(x) paste(x,collapse = ","),
            fromText = NULL, canEdit = TRUE,
            buttonFun = ls, buttonText = "Browse")

widget1 <- list(wList = list(a = pW1),
                preFun = function() "Hi",
                postFun = function() "Bye")

# Call the functions
WName(pW1)
WValue(pW1)
WValue(pW1) <- "lll"
WtoText(pW1)
WfromText(pW1)
WcanEdit(pW1)
WbuttonText(pW1)
WbuttonFun(pW1)
WwList(widget1)
WwList(widget1) <- list(Name = "New list", Value = "New value")
WLValue(widget1, 1)
WLValue(widget1, 1) <- "New value"
WpreFun(widget1)
WpostFun(widget1)
WEnd(widget1)
