 * View interface
 * Views are NOT reference counted. Use the Destroy() member function to
 * destroy a view.
 * The lifetime of the view hierarchy is bounded by the lifetime of the
 * view manager that owns the views.
 * Most of the methods here are read-only. To set the corresponding properties
 * of a view, go through nsViewManager.

class nsView final : public nsIWidgetListener {
  friend class nsViewManager;

  typedef mozilla::LayoutDeviceIntRect LayoutDeviceIntRect;
  typedef mozilla::LayoutDeviceIntRegion LayoutDeviceIntRegion;

  void operator delete(void* ptr) { ::operator delete(ptr); }

   * Get the view manager which "owns" the view.
   * This method might require some expensive traversal work in the future. If
   * you can get the view manager from somewhere else, do that instead.
   * @result the view manager
  nsViewManager* GetViewManager() const { return mViewManager; }

   * Find the view for the given widget, if there is one.
   * @return the view the widget belongs to, or null if the widget doesn't
   * belong to any view.
  static nsView* GetViewFor(nsIWidget* aWidget);

   * Destroy the view.
   * The view destroys its child views, and destroys and releases its
   * widget (if it has one).
   * Also informs the view manager that the view is destroyed by calling
   * SetRootView(NULL) if the view is the root view and calling RemoveChild()
   * otherwise.
  void Destroy();

   * Called to get the position of a view.
   * The specified coordinates are relative to the parent view's origin, but
   * are in appunits of this.
   * This is the (0, 0) origin of the coordinate space established by this view.
   * @param x out parameter for x position

   * Called to get the dimensions and position of the view's bounds.
   * The view's bounds (x,y) are relative to the origin of the parent view, but
   * are in appunits of this.
   * The view's bounds (x,y) might not be the same as the view's position,
   * if the view has content above or to the left of its origin.
   * @param aBounds out parameter for bounds
  nsRect GetBounds() const { return mDimBounds; }

   * The bounds of this view relative to this view. So this is the same as
   * GetBounds except this is relative to this view instead of the parent view.

   * Get the offset between the coordinate systems of |this| and aOther.
   * Adding the return value to a point in the coordinate system of |this|
   * will transform the point to the coordinate system of aOther.
   * The offset is expressed in appunits of |this|. So if you are getting the
   * offset between views in different documents that might have different
   * appunits per devpixel ratios you need to be careful how you use the
   * result.
   * If aOther is null, this will return the offset of |this| from the
   * root of the viewmanager tree.
   * This function is fastest when aOther is an ancestor of |this|.
   * NOTE: this actually returns the offset from aOther to |this|, but
   * that offset is added to transform _coordinates_ from |this| to aOther.
  nsPoint GetOffsetTo(const nsView* aOther) const;

   * Get the offset between the origin of |this| and the origin of aWidget.
   * Adding the return value to a point in the coordinate system of |this|
   * will transform the point to the coordinate system of aWidget.
   * The offset is expressed in appunits of |this|.
  nsPoint GetOffsetToWidget(nsIWidget* aWidget) const;

   * Takes a point aPt that is in the coordinate system of |this|'s parent view
   * and converts it to be in the coordinate system of |this| taking into
   * account the offset and any app unit per dev pixel ratio differences.
  nsPoint ConvertFromParentCoords(nsPoint aPt) const;

   * Called to query the visibility state of a view.
   * @result current visibility state
  nsViewVisibility GetVisibility() const { return mVis; }

   * Get whether the view "floats" above all other views,
   * which tells the compositor not to consider higher views in
   * the view hierarchy that would geometrically intersect with
   * this view. This is a hack, but it fixes some problems with
   * views that need to be drawn in front of all other views.
   * @result true if the view floats, false otherwise.

   * Called to query the parent of the view.
   * @result view's parent

   * The view's first child is the child which is earliest in document order.
   * @result first child
  nsView* GetFirstChild() const { return mFirstChild; }

   * Called to query the next sibling of the view.
   * @result view's next sibling
  nsView* GetNextSibling() const { return mNextSibling; }

   * Set the view's frame.
  void SetFrame(nsIFrame* aRootFrame) { mFrame = aRootFrame; }

   * Retrieve the view's frame.
  nsIFrame* GetFrame() const { return mFrame; }

   * Get the nearest widget in this view or a parent of this view and
   * the offset from the widget's origin to this view's origin
   * @param aOffset - if non-null the offset from this view's origin to the
   * widget's origin (usually positive) expressed in appunits of this will be
   * returned in aOffset.
   * @return the widget closest to this view; can be null because some view
   * trees don't have widgets at all (e.g., printing), but if any view in the
   * view tree has a widget, then it's safe to assume this will not return null
  nsIWidget* GetNearestWidget(nsPoint* aOffset) const;
