``fsleyes-props`` is a library which is used by used by `FSLeyes
<https://git.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/fsleyes/fsleyes>`_, and which allows you to:

- Listen for change to attributes on a python object,

- Automatically generate ``wxpython`` widgets which are bound
to attributes of a python object

- Automatically generate a command line interface to set
values of the attributes of a python object.


To do this, you just need to subclass the :class:`.HasProperties` class,
and add some :class:`.PropertyBase` types as class attributes.

Example usage
-------------


.. code-block:: python

>>> import fsleyes_props as props
>>>
>>> class PropObj(props.HasProperties):
>>> myProperty = props.Boolean()
>>>
>>> myPropObj = PropObj()
>>>
>>> # Access the property value as a normal attribute:
>>> myPropObj.myProperty = True
>>> myPropObj.myProperty
True
>>>
>>> # access the props.Boolean instance:
>>> myPropObj.getProp('myProperty')
<props.prop.Boolean at 0x1045e2710>
>>>
>>> # access the underlying props.PropertyValue object
>>> # (there are caveats for List properties):
>>> myPropObj.getPropVal('myProperty')
<props.prop.PropertyValue instance at 0x1047ef518>
>>>
>>> # Receive notification of property value changes
>>> def myPropertyChanged(value, *args):
>>> print('New property value: {}'.format(value))
>>>
>>> myPropObj.addListener(
>>> 'myProperty', 'myListener', myPropertyChanged)
>>>
>>> myPropObj.myProperty = False
New property value: False
>>>
>>> # Remove a previously added listener
>>> myPropObj.removeListener('myListener')
