You should be using the inbox/outbox interface, not these methods (except construction). This documentation is designed as a roadmap as to their functionalilty for maintainers and new component developers.

__init__(self[, image][, position][, bgcolour][, size][, displayExtra][, maxpect][, expect_file_strings])

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature


Blits the background colour and image file to the surface

fetchImage(self, newImage)

Load image from specified filename.

self.size is set to image dimensions if self.size is None.

Image is scaled by self.maxpect if self.maxpect evaluates to True.

imageFromString(self, newImage)


Main loop.

waitBox(self, boxname)

Generator. yield's 1 until data is ready on the named inbox.


Got a problem with the documentation? Something unclear that could be clearer? Want to help improve it? Constructive criticism is very welcome - especially if you can suggest a better rewording!

Please leave you feedback here in reply to the documentation thread in the Kamaelia blog.
