IDLgrROI Properties

IDLgrROI Properties

IDLgrROI objects have the following properties in addition to properties inherited from any superclasses. Properties with the word “Yes” in the “Get” column of the property table can be retrieved via IDLgrROI::GetProperty. Properties with the word “Yes” in the “Init” column of the property table can be set via IDLgrROI::Init. Properties with the word “Yes” in the “Set” column in the property table can be set via IDLgrROI::SetProperty.

Note: For a discussion of the property description tables shown below, see Modifying Object Property Descriptions.

Objects of this class have the following properties.

In addition, objects of this class inherit:

ALL

An anonymous structure with the values of all of the properties associated with the state of this object. State information about the object may include things like color, line style, etc., but not vertex data or user values.

Note: The fields in this structure may change in subsequent releases of IDL.

Property Type

Structure

Name String

not displayed

Get: Yes

Set: No

Init: No

Registered: No

ALPHA_CHANNEL

A floating-point value in the range [0.0, 1.0] to specify the opacity of the ROI. The default value of 1.0 causes IDL to draw the ROI completely opaque. If the value of this property is less than 1.0, then the pixels of the ROI are blended with the pixels already on the screen, where the color of the ROI is multiplied by the alpha value and the pixels already on the screen are multiplied by 1.0-alpha.

Because an object can only be blended with objects already drawn on the screen, the drawing order of the objects must be considered carefully in order to obtain the desired results.

This property has no effect on devices using indexed color mode.

When the ROI is drawn with symbols, the symbol color and alpha values are always used to draw the symbols.

Property Type

Float-point value

Name String

Transparency

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: Yes

ANTIALIAS

A Boolean value that indicates whether anti-aliasing should be used when drawing the lines. The default is 0, which disables anti-aliasing.

Property Type

BOOLEAN

Name String

Anti-aliasing

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: Yes

CLIP_PLANES

A 4-by-N floating-point array that specifies the coefficients of the clipping planes to be applied to this object. The four coefficients for each clipping plane are of the form [A, B, C, D], where Ax + By + Cz + D = 0. Portions of this object that fall in the half space Ax + By + Cz + D > 0 will be clipped. By default, the value of this property is a scalar (-1) indicating that no clipping planes are to be applied.

Note: The clipping planes specified via this property are applied in addition to the near and far clipping planes associated with the IDLgrView in which this object appears.

Note: Clipping planes are applied in the data space of this object (prior to the application of any x, y, or z coordinate conversion).

Note: To determine the maximum number of clipping planes supported by the device, use the MAX_NUM_CLIP_PLANES property of the GetDeviceInfo method for the IDLgrBuffer, IDLgrClipboard, IDLgrWindow, and IDLgrVRML objects.

Property Type

Floating-point array

Name String

not displayed

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: No

COLOR

A color index or a three-element vector [red, green, blue] specifying the color used to draw the region. The default color is [0, 0, 0].

In a property sheet, this property appears as a color property.

Property Type

COLOR

Name String

Color

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: Yes

DEPTH_TEST_DISABLE

An integer value that determines whether depth testing is disabled.

  • Set this property to 0 (the default) to inherit the value set by the parent model or view. The parent view always enables depth testing. A model may also enable or disable depth testing.
  • Set this property to 1 to explicitly disable depth buffer testing while drawing this object.
  • Set this property to 2 to explicitly enable depth testing for this object.

Disabling depth testing allows an object to draw itself “on top” of other objects already on the screen, even if the object is located behind them.

Note: Disabling depth testing also disables depth buffer writing. When disabling depth testing, the DEPTH_TEST_FUNCTION and DEPTH_WRITE_DISABLE properties are effectively ignored.

This property is registered as an enumerated list, but it is hidden by default.

Property Type

ENUMLIST

Name String

not displayed

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: No

DEPTH_TEST_FUNCTION

An integer value that determines the depth test function. Set this property to 0 (the default) to inherit the value set by the parent model or view. The parent view always sets a depth test function of LESS. A model may also set a depth test function value. The graphics device compares the object’s depth at a particular pixel location with the depth stored in the depth buffer at that same pixel location. If the comparison test passes, the object’s pixel is drawn at that location on the screen and the depth buffer is updated (if depth writing is enabled).

Set this property to any of the following values to use the desired function while rendering this object.

  • 0 = INHERIT - use value from parent model or view.
  • 1 = NEVER - never passes.
  • 2 = LESS - passes if the object’s depth is less than the depth buffer’s value.
  • 3 = EQUAL - passes if the object’s depth is equal to the depth buffer’s value.
  • 4 = LESS OR EQUAL - passes if the object’s depth is less than or equal to the depth buffer’s value.
  • 5 = GREATER - passes if the object’s depth is greater than or equal to the depth buffer’s value.
  • 6 = NOT EQUAL - passes if the object’s depth is not equal to the depth buffer’s value.
  • 7 = GREATER OR EQUAL - passes if the object’s depth is greater than or equal to the depth buffer’s value.
  • 8 = ALWAYS - always passes

Less means closer to the viewer.

This property is registered as an enumerated list, but it is hidden by default.

Property Type

ENUMLIST

Name String

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: No

DEPTH_WRITE_DISABLE

An integer value that determines whether depth writing is disabled.

  • Set this property to 0 (the default) to inherit the value set by the parent model or view. The parent view always enables depth writing. A model may also enable or disable depth writing.
  • Set this property to 1 to explicitly disable depth buffer writing while rendering this object.
  • Set this property to 2 to explicitly enable depth writing for this object.

Disabling depth writing allows an object to be overdrawn by other objects, even if the object is located in front of them.

Note: If depth testing (see DEPTH_TEST_DISABLE property) is disabled, depth writing is also automatically disabled.

This property is registered as an enumerated list, but it is hidden by default.

Property Type

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: No

DOUBLE

A Boolean value that indicates whether data provided by any of the input arguments will be stored in this object as using double-precision floating-point format.

  • Set this property equal to 1 to convert input data to double-precision floating-point format.
  • Set this property equal to 0 to convert input data to single-precision floating-point format.
  • If you do not specify a value for this property, no data type conversion will be performed, and the data will be stored with its original precision.

Setting this property may be desirable if the data consists of large integers that cannot be accurately represented in single-precision floating-point arithmetic. This property is also automatically set to 1 if any of the input arguments are stored using a variable of type DOUBLE.

Property Type

Boolean

LINESTYLE

An integer that indicates the line style to be used to draw the region. The value can be either an integer value specifying a pre-defined line style, or a two-element vector specifying a stippling pattern.

To use a pre-defined line style, set this property equal to one of the following integer values:

0

PALETTE

An object reference to a palette object (an instance of the IDLgrPalette object class) that defines the color palette of this object. This property is only used for Object Graphics destinations using the RGB color model. In this case, if the color value for the region is specified as a color index value, this palette is used to look up the color for the region. If the PALETTE property is not set, the destination object PALETTE property is used, which defaults to a gray scale ramp.

Note: Objects specified via this property are not automatically cleaned up when the IDLgrROI object is destroyed.

This property is registered as a user-defined property, but it is hidden by default.

Property Type

USERDEF

Name String

Color palette

Get: Yes

Set: Yes

Init: Yes

Registered: Yes

PARENT

An object reference to the object that contains this object.

Property Type

Object reference

Name String

Get: Yes

Set: No

Init: No

Registered: No

REGISTER_PROPERTIES

A Boolean value that determines whether to register properties available for this object. If this property is set, all properties marked in this properties section as “Registered: Yes” will be registered for display in a property sheet. This property is useful mainly when creating iTools. By default, no properties are registered.

Property Type

Boolean

Name String

not displayed

Get: No

Set: No

Init: Yes

Registered: No

SHADER

An object reference to an IDLgrShader object (or an object containing IDLgrShader as a superclass). When there is suitable graphics card hardware support, the ROI is rendered using the GLSL shader program (executed on the graphics card) instead of using fixed OpenGL properties when initially drawn. (If a suitable graphics card is not present, IDL ignores the shader object when the scene is drawn.) A single IDLgrShader object may be associated with additional ROI objects or other graphic objects that have the SHADER property.
