Salt(线框图)

Salt 是 PlantUML 下面的子项目用来帮助用户来设计图形界面或是网页线框图/页面简图

本工具的目标是实现简单的示例窗口。

可以用@startsalt关键字,或者使用@startuml紧接着下一行使用salt关键字.

Salt (Wireframe)

Salt is a subproject included in PlantUML that may help you to design graphical interface or Website Wireframe or Page Schematic or Screen Blueprint.

The goal of this tool is to discuss about simple and sample windows.

You can use either @startsalt keyword, or @startuml followed by a line with salt keyword.

基本部件

一个窗口必须以中括号开头和结尾。 接着可以这样定义:
  • 按钮用 []
  • 单选按钮用 ()
  • 复选框用 []
  • 用户文字域用 "

@startsalt
{
  Just plain text
  [This is my button]
  ()  Unchecked radio
  (X) Checked radio
  []  Unchecked box
  [X] Checked box
  "Enter text here   "
  ^This is a droplist^
}
@endsalt

这个工具是用来讨论简单的示例窗口。

Basic widgets

A window must start and end with brackets. You can then define:

  • Button using [ and ].
  • Radio button using ( and ).
  • Checkbox using [ and ].
  • User text area using ".
  • Droplist using ^.

@startsalt
{
  Just plain text
  [This is my button]
  ()  Unchecked radio
  (X) Checked radio
  []  Unchecked box
  [X] Checked box
  "Enter text here   "
  ^This is a droplist^
}
@endsalt

使用表格

当在输入关键词 {后,会自动建立一个表格

当输入| 说明一个单元格

例子如下

@startsalt
{
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
@endsalt

在启用关键词后,你可以使用以下字符来绘制表格中的线及列 :

Symbol Result
# 显示所有垂直水平线
! 显示所有垂直线
- 显示所有水平线
+ 显示外框线

@startsalt
{+
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
@endsalt

Using grid [|]

A table is automatically created when you use an opening bracket {. And you have to use | to separate columns.

For example:

@startsalt
{
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
@endsalt

Just after the opening bracket, you can use a character to define if you want to draw lines or columns of the grid :

Symbol Result
# To display all vertical and horizontal lines
! To display all vertical lines
- To display all horizontal lines
+ To display external lines

@startsalt
{+
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
@endsalt

分组框

@startsalt
{^"我的分组框"
  用户名 | "MyName   "
  密码 | "****     "
  [取消] | [确认]
}
@endsalt

[参见 QA-5840]

Group box [^]

@startsalt
{^"My group box"
  Login    | "MyName   "
  Password | "****     "
  [Cancel] | [  OK   ]
}
@endsalt

[Ref. QA-5840]

使用分隔符

你可以使用几条横线表示分隔符

@startuml
salt
{
  Text1
  ..
  "Some field"
  ==
  Note on usage
  ~~
  Another text
  --
  [Ok]
}
@enduml

Using separator [.., ==, ~~, --]

You can use several horizontal lines as separator.

@startsalt
{
  Text1
  ..
  "Some field"
  ==
  Note on usage
  ~~
  Another text
  --
  [Ok]
}
@endsalt

树形外挂

使用树结构,你必须要 以 {T 进行起始,然后使用 + 定义层次。

@startsalt
{
{T
 + World
 ++ America
 +++ Canada
 +++ USA
 ++++ New York
 ++++ Boston
 +++ Mexico
 ++ Europe
 +++ Italy
 +++ Germany
 ++++ Berlin
 ++ Africa
}
}
@endsalt

Tree widget [T]

To have a Tree, you have to start with {T and to use + to denote hierarchy.

@startsalt
{
{T
 + World
 ++ America
 +++ Canada
 +++ USA
 ++++ New York
 ++++ Boston
 +++ Mexico
 ++ Europe
 +++ Italy
 +++ Germany
 ++++ Berlin
 ++ Africa
}
}
@endsalt

Tree table [T]

You can combine trees with tables.

@startsalt
{
{T
+Region        | Population    | Age
+ World        | 7.13 billion  | 30
++ America     | 964 million   | 30
+++ Canada     | 35 million    | 30
+++ USA        | 319 million   | 30
++++ NYC       | 8 million     | 30
++++ Boston    | 617 thousand  | 30
+++ Mexico     | 117 million   | 30
++ Europe      | 601 million   | 30
+++ Italy      | 61 million    | 30
+++ Germany    | 82 million    | 30
++++ Berlin    | 3 million     | 30
++ Africa      | 1 billion     | 30
}
}
@endsalt

And add lines.

@startsalt
{
..
== with T!
{T!
+Region        | Population    | Age
+ World        | 7.13 billion  | 30
++ America     | 964 million   | 30
}
..
== with T-
{T-
+Region        | Population    | Age
+ World        | 7.13 billion  | 30
++ America     | 964 million   | 30
}
..
== with T+
{T+
+Region        | Population    | Age
+ World        | 7.13 billion  | 30
++ America     | 964 million   | 30
}
..
== with T#
{T#
+Region        | Population    | Age
+ World        | 7.13 billion  | 30
++ America     | 964 million   | 30
}
..
}
@endsalt

[Ref. QA-1265]

Enclosing brackets [{, }]

You can define subelements by opening a new opening bracket.

@startsalt
{
Name         | "                 "
Modifiers:   | { (X) public | () default | () private | () protected
                [] abstract | [] final   | [] static }
Superclass:  | { "java.lang.Object " | [Browse...] }
}
@endsalt

添加选项卡

你可以通过 {/ 标记增加对应的选项卡。 注意:可以使用HTML 代码来增加粗体效果。

@startsalt
{+
{/ <b>General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

可以定义垂直选项卡,如下:

@startsalt
{+
{/ <b>General
Fullscreen
Behavior
Saving } |
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
[Close]
}
}
@endsalt

Adding tabs [/]

You can add tabs using {/ notation. Note that you can use HTML code to have bold text.

@startsalt
{+
{/ <b>General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

Tab could also be vertically oriented:

@startsalt
{+
{/ <b>General
Fullscreen
Behavior
Saving } |
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
[Close]
}
}
@endsalt

使用菜单

你可以使用记号{*来添加菜单。

@startsalt
{+
{* File | Edit | Source | Refactor }
{/ General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

你也可以打开一个菜单:

@startsalt
{+
{* File | Edit | Source | Refactor
 Refactor | New | Open File | - | Close | Close All }
{/ General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

Using menu [*]

You can add a menu by using {* notation.

@startsalt
{+
{* File | Edit | Source | Refactor }
{/ General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

It is also possible to open a menu:

@startsalt
{+
{* File | Edit | Source | Refactor
 Refactor | New | Open File | - | Close | Close All }
{/ General | Fullscreen | Behavior | Saving }
{
{ Open image in: | ^Smart Mode^ }
[X] Smooth images when zoomed
[X] Confirm image deletion
[ ] Show hidden images
}
[Close]
}
@endsalt

高级表格

对于表格有两种特殊的标记 :
  • * 单元格同时具备 span 和 left 两个属性
  • . 是空白单元格

@startsalt
{#
. | Column 2 | Column 3
Row header 1 | value 1 | value 2
Row header 2 | A long cell | *
}
@endsalt

Advanced table

You can use two special notations for table :
  • * to indicate that a cell with span with left
  • . to denotate an empty cell

@startsalt
{#
. | Column 2 | Column 3
Row header 1 | value 1 | value 2
Row header 2 | A long cell | *
}
@endsalt

Scroll Bars [S, SI, S-]

You can use {S notation for scroll bar like in following examples:

  • {S: for horizontal and vertical scrollbars

@startsalt
{S
Message
.
.
.
.
}
@endsalt

  • {SI : for vertical scrollbar only

@startsalt
{SI
Message
.
.
.
.
}
@endsalt

  • {S- : for horizontal scrollbar only

@startsalt
{S-
Message
.
.
.
.
}
@endsalt

Colors

It is possible to change text color of widget.

@startsalt
{
  <color:Blue>Just plain text
  [This is my default button]
  [<color:green>This is my green button]
  [<color:#9a9a9a>This is my disabled button]
  []  <color:red>Unchecked box
  [X] <color:green>Checked box
  "Enter text here   "
  ^This is a droplist^
  ^<color:#9a9a9a>This is a disabled droplist^
  ^<color:red>This is a red droplist^
}
@endsalt

[Ref. QA-12177]

Pseudo sprite [<<, >>]

Using << and >> you can define a pseudo-sprite or sprite-like drawing and reusing it latter.

@startsalt
 {
 [X] checkbox|[] checkbox
 () radio | (X) radio
 This is a text|[This is my button]|This is another text
 "A field"|"Another long Field"|[A button]
 <<folder
 ............
 .XXXXX......
 .X...X......
 .XXXXXXXXXX.
 .X........X.
 .X........X.
 .X........X.
 .X........X.
 .XXXXXXXXXX.
 ............
 >>|<color:blue>other folder|<<folder>>
^Droplist^
}
@endsalt

OpenIconic

OpenIconic is an very nice open source icon set. Those icons have been integrated into the creole parser, so you can use them out-of-the-box.

You can use the following syntax: <&ICON_NAME>.

@startsalt
{
  Login<&person> | "MyName   "
  Password<&key> | "****     "
  [Cancel <&circle-x>] | [OK <&account-login>]
}
@endsalt

The complete list is available on OpenIconic Website, or you can use the following special diagram:

@startuml
