FBB::Align(3bobcat) Table Element Alignment FBB::Align(3bobcat)

FBB::Align - Class to align elements in Table objects

#include <bobcat/align>

Linking option: -lbobcat

This class defines objects used by the class FBB::Table to define the alignment of its columns and/or elements.

All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.


The type FBB::Manipulator can be used as a shorthand for

std::ios_base &(*)(std::ios_base &)

which is the prototype of standard io-manipulators like std::left.

The following manipulator (not part of the FBB::Align, class but defined in the FBB namespace) can be specified as Align-object constructor arguments and can be stored in Align objects through, e.g., setManip:


Align(Manipulator manip):
This constructor is used to specify an alignment which, when inserted into a Table, is used for all the table’s elements. This general alignment type may be modified of specific columns and/or elements using the following constructors;
Align(size_t column = 0, Manipulator manip = std::right):
This constructor defines how the content of column `column’ of a Table object are aligned. When used, it is the responsibility of the programmer to ensure that the table’s column exists (i.e., the Table must have a column index column);
Align(int row, size_t column, Manipulator manip):
This constructor defines the alignment of element [row][column] of a Table object. Before using this constructor table element [row][column] must have been defined. E.g.,

Table tab{ 3, Table::ROWWISE };
tab << "xx00x " << " x01x " << " x02xx" <<
10 << 11 << 12;
tab << Align(1, 1, FBB::center);

Copy and move constructors (and assignment operators) are available.

operator size_t() const:
Returns the value representing a requested width of an element in a Table object.

size_t col() const:
Returns the object’s column index;
bool hasRow() const:
Returns true if the object’s member returns a sensible value;
size_t row() const:
Returns the object’s row index;
Manipulator manip() const:
Returns the Manipulator stored in the object;
void setWidth(size_t width):
Defines the field-width of element(s) of a Table object to which the Align object refers;
void setManip(Manipulator manip):
Changes the object’s currently stored Manipulator.
