class TGCanvas: public TGFrame

TGCanvas and TGViewPort and TGContainer

A TGCanvas is a frame containing two scrollbars (a horizontal and
a vertical) and a viewport. The viewport acts as the window through
which we look at the contents of the container frame.

A TGContainer frame manages a content area. It can display and
control a hierarchy of multi-column items, and provides the ability
to add new items at any time. By default it doesn't map subwindows
which are items of the container. In this case subwindow must
provide DrawCopy method, see for example TGLVEntry class.
It is also possible to use option which allow to map subwindows.
This option has much slower drawing speed in case of more than 1000
 items placed in container. To activate this option the fMapSubwindows
data member must be set to kTRUE (for example TTVLVContainer class)

The TGContainer class can handle the keys:

o  F7, Ctnrl-F - activate search dialog
o  F3, Ctnrl-G - continue search
o  End - go to the last item in container
o  Home - go to the first item in container
o  PageUp,PageDown,arrow keys - navigate inside container
o  Return/Enter - equivalent to double click of the mouse button
o  Contrl-A - select/activate all items.
o  Space - invert selection.

Function documentation

TGCanvas(const TGWindow* p = 0, UInt_t w = 1, UInt_t h = 1, UInt_t options = kSunkenFrame|kDoubleBorder, Pixel_t back = GetDefaultFrameBackground())
 Create a canvas object.
 Delete canvas.
void MapSubwindows()
 Map all canvas sub windows.
void AddFrame(TGFrame* f, TGLayoutHints* l = 0)
 Adding a frame to a canvas is actually adding the frame to the
 viewport container. The viewport container must be at least a
 TGCompositeFrame for this method to succeed.
void DrawBorder()
 Draw canvas border.
void Layout()
 Create layout for canvas. Depending on the size of the container
 we need to add the scrollbars.
Bool_t ProcessMessage(Long_t msg, Long_t parm1, Long_t parm2)
 Handle message generated by the canvas scrollbars.
Int_t GetHsbPosition()
 Get position of horizontal scrollbar.
Int_t GetVsbPosition()
 Get position of vertical scrollbar.
void SetHsbPosition(Int_t newPos)
 Set position of horizontal scrollbar.
void SetVsbPosition(Int_t newPos)
 Set position of vertical scrollbar.
void SetScrolling(Int_t scrolling)
 Set scrolling policy. Use values defined by the enum: kCanvasNoScroll,
 kCanvasScrollHorizontal, kCanvasScrollVertical, kCanvasScrollBoth.
void ClearViewPort()
 Clear view port and redraw content.
void SavePrimitive(ostream& out, Option_t* option = "")
 Save a canvas widget as a C++ statement(s) on output stream out.
