pyface.action.action_manager module

Abstract base class for all action managers.

class pyface.action.action_manager.ActionManager(*args, **traits)[source]

Bases: traits.has_traits.HasTraits

Abstract base class for all action managers.

An action manager contains a list of groups, with each group containing a list of items.

There are currently three concrete sub-classes:

  1. ‘MenuBarManager’

  2. ‘MenuManager’

  3. ‘ToolBarManager’

DEFAULT_GROUP = Constant("additions")

The Id of the default group.

controller = Instance(ActionController)

The action controller (if any) used to control how actions are performed.

enabled = Bool(True)

Is the action manager enabled?

groups = Property(List(Group))

All of the contribution groups in the manager.

id = Str()

The manager’s unique identifier (if it has one).

visible = Bool(True)

Is the action manager visible?

changed = Event()

fixme: We probably need more granular events than this!

append(item)[source]

Append an item to the manager.

Parameters

item (string, Group instance or ActionManagerItem instance) – The item to append.

Notes

If the item is a group, the Group is appended to the manager’s list of groups. It the item is a string, then a group is created with the string as the id and the new group is appended to the list of groups. If the item is an ActionManagerItem then the item is appended to the manager’s default group.

destroy()[source]

Called when the manager is no longer required.

By default this method simply calls ‘destroy’ on all of the manager’s groups.

insert(index, item)[source]

Insert an item into the manager at the specified index.

Parameters
  • index (int) – The position at which to insert the object

  • item (string, Group instance or ActionManagerItem instance) – The item to insert.

Notes

If the item is a group, the Group is inserted into the manager’s list of groups. It the item is a string, then a group is created with the string as the id and the new group is inserted into the list of groups. If the item is an ActionManagerItem then the item is inserted into the manager’s defualt group.
