Composition: Create a Box.set_styles() Method

© 21 July, 2013, Martin Rinehart


Your visible boxes should remain unchanged. This is an internal code rearrangement.


Create a set_styles() instance method. All the style setting logic from Box.init() gets moved into this new method (including the get_ps_styles() inner function). We've changed new_box into the variable box as this will also be called, for example, when changing border styles on an existing box. Don't forget that the styles parameter for Box.init() is the box.styles property in this method.

Not shown, add a line to Box.init() that calls this method, where the logic has been removed.
