Developing and Debugging Control Definition Procedures

An application I was working on recently required a control that operated similar to the way the date and time is set in the alarm clock desk accessory. So I set out to write my own control definition procedure. Everything was going great, until I tried to use it. It didn’t work. Now, I can use TMON with the best, but I don’t program in C just so I can sit down and calculate offsets for all my structures, and track down variables on the stack. In order to use THINK C’s source level debugger, I had to embed my CDEF in my test application. This article describes exactly how I did this, and provides a framework for which any type of definition procedure ( WDEFs, LDEFs, MDEFs, and MBDFs ) can be tested and thoroughly debugged using a debugger like THINK C’s.

Control Definition Procedures

A control definition procedure, for those of you who don’t already know, is a resource of type ‘CDEF’, which contains the code to draw and manipulate a specific style of control. The Macintosh comes with two default CDEFs. These are the button CDEF, which has resource ID of 0, and the scroll bar CDEF, which is resource ID 1. The procID argument to NewControl, is determined by a combination of the resource ID, and the variation code. The algorithm for calculating the procID is as follows:

resourceID * 16 + variation code

This allows for up to 16 variations of a control. The button CDEF, has three variations, the button, the check box, and the radio button. These have variation codes of 0, 1, and 2. Using this information, the procID for the radio button would be 0*16+2 or 2. The scroll bar CDEF does not have any variations, so its procID would be 1*16+0, or 16. In our example the CDEF has an ID of 2, so that its procID would be 32. When NewControl is called, the resource ID and the variation code is backed out of the procID, and then it loads the CDEF with that resource ID, and calls it with the appropriate variation code. The interface to the CDEF is defined as follows:

/* 1 &/

pascal long mycdef(varCode,myControl,message,param)
int varCode ;
ControlHandle myControl ;
int message ;
long param ;

The varCode parameter is the variation code of the particular control.  Since our control 
won’t have any variations, we can ignore this parameter.  The second parameter is the control 
handle itself.  The last parameter is used for passing extra information associated with 
a specific message.  The message parameter tells our CDEF what the control manager wants 
us to do.  The messages are defined as follows:

/* 2 */

enum{
 drawCntl,
 testCntl,
 CalcCRgns,
 initCntl,
 dispCntl,
 posCntl,
 thumbCntl,
 dragCntl,
 autoTrack
} ;

Then initCntl, and the dispCntl messages, are for initialization, and cleanup respectively. Our control uses these messages to allocate and initialize data storage, and to dispose of it. The control manager uses the testCntl message to request a partCode for a mouseDown in a control. The drawCntl message is used in conjunction with a partCode to cause the part to be drawn. Initially a partCode of 0 is passed in param, which tells our CDEF to draw the whole control. When a CDEF receives a drawCntl message, it must do several checks first. First it must check the cntrlVisible field of the control, to see if we need to draw the control at all. Then the cntrlHilite field must be checked to see if part of the control must be hilited. The cntrlHilite field specifies a partCode to hilite on the control, 0 for the whole control, or 255 to inactivate the control. The autoTrack message is sent to track a mouseDown event in the control. Upon initialization, the actionProc field of the control should be set to -1 to indicate that there is a default “Tracking” procedure. When a mouse down first occurs in a control, the Control Manager first call the CDEF with testCntl, which returns a partCode, and then calls the CDEF with autoTrack, passing the partCode in param. The autoTrack procedure should handle whatever hiliting needs to be done, plus whatever other tasks need to be specific to the control. The CalcCRgns message should be handled by building the region of the control into the RgnHandle passed in param. The top byte of param should be cleared first, to clear bit flags that the control manager sets. The dragCntl, posCntl, and thumbCntl messages are not required to implement our control. For more information on these see chapter 10, of Inside Macintosh Vol. I.

Debugging Code Resources

The following is a description of the method used for using THINK C’s source debugger to debug code resources:

• first create a dummy code resource with the same interface as the code resource to be debugged. This dummy code resource will do nothing but a GetResource on an unused type. Then it will use the first long word of this resource to make a pascal call to this address using the same parameters as it was called with.

• Include the code resource to be debugged in the test application’s project.

• In the beginning of the test application, first allocate a long word size handle. Then get the address of the main routine of the code resource, and store it in the handle. Now we do an add resource of the same unused type as our dummy code resource uses.

• The rest of the application proceed to use the code resource as it normally would. At this point you will be able to compile and debug your code resource under the debugger in THINK C.

One of the things to watch for while using this technique is that when a code resource is being used under the debugger, if your code resource uses globals, you will be referencing off of A5. Code resources reference globals off of A4 in THINK C. This normally would cause no problem, except that THINK C does not set up A4 pointing to your code resource globals. This must be done by the RememberA0(), SetupA4() sequence done in the beginning of the listing of the example CDEF. At the end of the CDEF, the RestoreA4( ) restores the old value of A4.

Date/Time Control

Our control was written in an attempt to provide a method for entering the date and time conveniently, and having a control that was portable to other programs and not embedded inside of the program. The CDEF for this control is provided on this issues source code disk and can be ported into your own program, using Resedit. The way it is used, is as follows:

Ex.3 

 install the control in you window or dialog
 while( i don’t want to quit yet ) {
        getnextevent
        if( mouseDown ) {
             FindControl( )
             partCode = TrackControl( )
             HiliteControl( ourControl, partCode )
        }
 }

To call this control definition procedure use procId 32, and make sure that the CDEF resource 2, is either in your applications resource fork or your system file. When the control first comes up it uses the current system date and time, but this can be changed by creating the control as invisible, and referencing off of the contrlData field to set the NEW_DATE_TIME field of the controls data. Then make the control visible and it will use the date and time that was just set. The control uses military time only ( it would be a nice addition to add support for standard time ), and since it only provides two digits for the year, is only good until 1999. To get the date out of the control, again you will need to reference off of the contrlData structure to the CONTROL_DATE_TIME field, before the control is disposed of. The files used in this article are listed here:

date_cdef.c - code for date/time cdef

date_convert.c - DateTimeRec to character string conversion routine

test_cdef_main.c - Control test application

debug_test_cdef_main.c - Control test main routine used

used to debug the cdef under the debugger.

dummy_cdef.c - dummy control defProc used to call actual cdef embedded in application.

Good luck!
