ENVI Extensions: Getting notifications from ENVI ROIs

Author: Daryl Atencio / Thursday, February 25, 2016

A recent project I worked on required an ENVI extension to respond ROI changes made in the ENVI Layer Manager.   Fortunately, ENVI provides a mechanism that allows an object to do this.  First, the object must be added to the list of observers for each ROI layer.  The following command provides access to these layers:

IDLcf$Get , /INCLUDE_VIS_CHILDREN, VIS_LAYERS=oVisLayers

The variable oVisLayers will contain all visible layers present in the ENVI display.  To get only the ROIs, loop through its contents looking for any instances of IDLcfVisROINative.  When one is encountered the object can be added to the ROI layer’s list of observers using the following:

void = oVisLayers[i]-> AddObserver (self)

Now that the object has been added to the list of observers an OnNotify method must be added.  Any notifications from the ROI layers will be sent to this method.

function my_class ::OnNotify, oSubject, strMsg, strArg

The input parameters are:\

  • oSubject – A reference to the ENVI object sending the notification
  • strMsg – A string containing the name of the notification (e.g. SETPROPERTY)
  • strArg – A string containing additional notification information (e.g. HIDE)

Here is a stand-alone example that demonstrates setting up an object to receive and act on notifications from ROIs in the ENVI Layer Manager:

I did not understand the program in the middle. I'll go through it again and I'll definitely try this in my seo company.
