WidgetReference

The functionality provided by GUIKit has been superseded by the interface construction and controls functions native to the built-in Wolfram Language.

WidgetReference[id]

looks up an existing widget instance using identifier id and return the underlying object.

Details

  • To use WidgetReference, you first need to load GUIKit using Needs["GUIKit`"].
  • WidgetReference is used to find an existing widget instance and return the underlying object; it never creates a new instance. It is most useful if you want to pass the object from a widget to another function.
  • Other interface definition functions can assign names or identifiers to widgets to make them available for lookup.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

WidgetReference allows you to use a name to access the underlying object:

With the underlying object you can call methods that are not exposed as properties:

It is also possible to call a method of a named widget using InvokeMethod:
