html-lines

Draw a line using an HTML element between two existing elements. Lines can easily be made to work responsively when attaching the redraw method to the window.resize event. Use CSS to control line styles and animation. Use the LINES API to manipulate the lines.

LINES

This is the global object created when loading html-lines.js.

<script src="html-lines.js"></script>

If using CommonJS, LINES would be created by requiring.

var LINES = require('html-lines');

LINES.setOptions

@param - {Object}
Change the default options.

LINES.setOptions({
    lineElementType: {String},
    nameAttribute: {String},
    stateAttribute: {String}
});
 
// defaults
{
    lineElementType: 'div',
    nameAttribute: 'data-line',
    stateAttribute: 'data-line-state'
}

LINES.createAnchor

@param - {Object}
@return - {Object} instance of Anchor

var anchor = LINES.createAnchor({
    el: {HTMLElement or querySelector String},
    xOrigin: {'center' or 'left' or 'right' or Number}, // any number is multiplied by the width
    yOrigin: {'center' or 'top' or 'left' or Number}, // any number is multiplied by the height
    xOffset: {Number},
    yOffset: {Number}
});
 
// defaults
{
    el: document.body,
    xOffset: 0,
    yOffset: 0,
    xOrigin: 'center',
    yOrigin: 'center'
}

Anchors don't add anything to the DOM.

LINES.createLine

@param - {Object} instance of Anchor
@param - {Object} instance of Anchor
@param - {Object}
@return - {Object} instance of Line

LINES.createLine(anchor1, anchor2, {
    name: {String},
    state: {String},
    stroke: {Number},
    bleed: {Boolean}
});
 
// defaults
{
    name: '',
    state: '',
    stroke: 1,
    bleed: false
}

name and state

These are basically for CSS hooks.

stroke

The stroke or height of the line element needs to be set in pixels to accuratly draw a line.

bleed

Bleed is used to extend lines half the width of the stroke on each end.

LINES.redraw

Recalculates anchor positions and changes line position, size and angle.

LINES.redraw();

LINES.getAnchors

Returns a copy of the anchors array.
@return - {Array}

var anchors = LINES.getAnchors();

LINES.getLines

Returns a copy of the lines array.
@return - {Array}

var lines = LINES.getLines();

LINES.destroyAll

LINES.destroyAll();

Instance of Anchor

var anchor = LINES.createAnchor(...);

anchor.offset

Recalculate the position of an anchor. Typically do this before calling line.redraw().

anchor.offset();

anchor.destory

anchor.destory();

Any lines attached to this anchor will also be destoryed.

Instance of Line

var line = LINES.createLine(...);

line.redraw

@return - {Object}

var dimensions = line.redraw();
 
console.log(dimensions.width); // {Number} length in pixels of the line
console.log(dimensions.angle); // {Number} angle in radians of the line

line.stroke

Assigns a new stroke size if passing a number and always returns the stroke size.
@param - {Number}
@return - {Number}

line.stroke(3);
// or
console.log(line.stroke()); // 3

line.name

Assigns a new name if passing a string and always returns the line name.
@param - {String}
@return - {String}

line.name('newName');
// or
console.log(line.name()); // 'newName'

line.state

Assigns a new state if passing a string and always returns the line state.
@param - {String}
@return - {String}

line.state('newState');
// or
console.log(line.state()); // 'newState'

line.destroy

This is automatically called when either of the line's anchors are destroyed.

line.destroy();

This should rarely be used since lines are destroyed when anchors are destroyed but not vice versa.
