Detailed Description

Class containing "advanced" configuration options.

Options set here are for developer or advanced users only. If a general user needs to set one of these for normal KiCad use, either:

  • They are working around some bug that should be fixed, or
  • The parameter they are setting is of general interest and should be in the main application config, with UI provided.

Options in this class are, in general, preferable to #defines, as they allow more flexible configuration by developers, and don't hide code from the compiler on other configurations, which can result in broken builds.

Never use advanced configs in an untestable way. If a function depends on advanced config such that you cannot test it without changing the config, "lift" the config to a higher level and make pass it as parameter of the code under test. The tests can pass their own values as needed.

This also applies to code that does not depend on "common" - it cannot use this class, so you must pass configuration in as proper parameters.

Sometimes you can just use values directly, and sometimes helper functions might be provided to allow extra logic (for example when a advanced config applies only on certain platforms).

For more information on what config keys set these parameters in the config files, and why you might want to set them, see AC_KEYS

Member Function Documentation

◆ AllowLegacyCanvas()

bool ADVANCED_CFG::AllowLegacyCanvas ( ) const

Helper to determine if legacy canvas is allowed (according to platform and config)

true if legacy canvas should be shown

Definition at line 192 of file advanced_config.cpp.

193 {
194  // default is to allow
195  bool allow = true;
197  // on GTK3, check the config
198 #ifdef __WXGTK3__
200 #endif
202  return allow;
203 }
bool m_allowLegacyCanvasInGtk3

References m_allowLegacyCanvasInGtk3.

◆ GetCfg()


Get the singleton instance's config, which is shared by all consumers of advanced config.

This configuration is read-only - to set options, users should add the parameters to their config files at ~/.config/kicad/advanced, or the platform equivalent.
