A pinboard-object which draws its drawing-object .
Like other pinboard-objects, to be displayed a pinboard-objects-displayer needs to be added to the
of a pinboard-layout, using the standard CAPI interface of pinboard-layout, that is
:description passed to
(setf capi:layout-description), or manipulate-pinboard.
When displayed, a
pinboard-objects-displayer draws its
. If it was created with
t (see make-pinboard-objects-displayer), it draws to a metafile of the size indicated by
, and then draws the metafile to the screen using its own geometry as the target rectangle. Otherwise it may draw to the screen or use a pixmap cache.
pinboard-objects-displayer can be changed by
(setf pinboard-objects-displayer-drawing-object), which automatically forces it to be redisplayed. If any of the objects inside the hierarchy below the
changes, there is no forced redisplay. You need to use force-objects-redraw on the
pinboard-objects-displayer (or the parent objects-displayer) to redisplay.
