IDLitWindow Methods

IDLitWindow::Add


The IDLitWindow::Add procedure method adds the given object(s) to the window.

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]Add, Objects [, POSITION=value]

Arguments


Objects

A reference (or array of references) to the object(s) to be added to the window. Any of the objects that inherit from IDLgrViewGroup are added directly to the window’s scene, which represents a container for all of the views (and their corresponding visualization hierarchies) that appear within a window. The remaining objects are added to the current view within the window’s scene.

Keywords


POSITION

Set this keyword equal to a scalar or array containing the zero-based indices of the position within the container at which the new object should be placed.

IDLitWindow::AddWindowEventObserver


The IDLitWindow::AddWindowEventObserver procedure method adds the given object(s) to the list of observers that are to be notified of events that occur within the window. Each observer must implement one or more methods corresponding to bits in the IDLitWindow object’s event mask, as set by the IDLitWindow::SetEventMask method.

Arguments


Objects

A reference (or vector of references) to the object(s) to be added as window event observers.

Keywords


None

IDLitWindow::Cleanup


The IDLitWindow::Cleanup procedure method performs all cleanup on the object.

Note: Cleanup methods are special lifecycle methods, and as such cannot be called outside the context of object creation and destruction. This means that in most cases, you cannot call the Cleanup method directly. There is one exception to this rule: if you write your own subclass of this class, you can call the Cleanup method from within the Init or Cleanup method of the subclass.

Syntax


OBJ_DESTROY, Obj

or

Obj->[IDLitWindow::]Cleanup   (In a lifecycle method only)

Arguments


None

Keywords


None

IDLitWindow::ClearSelections


The IDLitWindow::ClearSelections procedure method clears the window’s list of currently selected items (within its current view). The items within the current view that had been selected are deselected.

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]ClearSelections

Arguments


None

Keywords


None

IDLitWindow::DoHitTest


The IDLitWindow::DoHitTest function method performs a hit test to determine which visualizations within the destination are displayed at a given pixel location.

Note: The objects returned in Result are the “top-level” objects (usually IDLgrModel or IDLitVisualization objects). Objects contained by the returned objects can be returned using the SUB_HIT keyword.

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]DoHitTest(X, Y [, DIMENSIONS=[width, height]] [, /ORDER] [, SUB_HIT=variable] [, UNITS={0 | 1 | 2 | 3}])

Return Value


Returns a vector of references to the objects (usually IDLgrModel or IDLitVisualization objects) that appear at the given location. If no visualizations are displayed at that location, a null reference is returned.

Arguments


X

A floating-point value representing the x-location at which the hit test is to be performed.

Y

A floating-point value representing the y-location at which the hit test is to be performed.

Keywords


DIMENSIONS

Set this keyword to a two-element integer vector, [w, h], to specify the dimensions (width and height) of the hit test box. The hit test box is centered at the location specified by the X and Y arguments. Any object that falls within this hit test box will be included in the return vector. By default, the hit test box is 3 pixels by 3 pixels.

ORDER

Set this keyword to control the ordering of objects in the returned hit test list when the objects are at the same distance from the viewer. Set ORDER=0 (the default) to return the objects in the order in which they were drawn. Set ORDER=1 to return objects in the reversed order from which they were drawn.

Note: If the visualization objects use DEPTH_TEST_FUNCTION=4 (less than or equal), then it is recommended that the ORDER keyword be set to 1 to ensure that objects at the same depth are returned in the same order in which they appear visually.

SUB_HIT

Set this keyword to a named variable that will contain references to all contained visualization objects that satisfy all of the following conditions:

  • The objects are contained by the nearest hit visualization (the first object in the return value)
  • The objects are SELECT_TARGETs (see IDLgrModel)
  • The objects are actively displayed at the given X and Y coordinates

The results of SUB_HIT are returned in the order in which the sub-hit visualizations appear in the graphics hierarchy. Sub-hits are only returned for the first visualization.

UNITS

Set this keyword to a scalar value to indicate the units of measure for the X, Y arguments and the DIMENSIONS keyword. Valid values include:

  • 0 = Device (default)
  • 1 = Inches
  • 2 = Centimeters
  • 3 = Normalized: relative to the dimensions of the primary monitor/screen, as stored in the SCREEN_DIMENSIONS property

IDLitWindow::GetEventMask


The IDLitWindow::GetEventMask function method returns a bitwise mask representing the events that are enabled for this window.

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]GetEventMask([, BUTTON_EVENTS=variable] [, KEYBOARD_EVENTS=variable] [, MOTION_EVENTS=variable] [, TIMER_EVENTS=variable] [, TRACKING_EVENTS=variable] [, WHEEL_EVENTS=variable] )

KEYBOARD_EVENTS

Set this keyword equal to a named variable that will contain a 1 if keyboard events are currently enabled for this window, or a 0 otherwise.

MOTION_EVENTS

Set this keyword equal to a named variable that will contain a 1 if mouse motion events are currently enabled for this window, or a 0 otherwise.

Set this keyword equal to a named variable that will contain a 1 if wheel events are currently enabled for this window, or a 0 otherwise.

IDLitWindow::GetProperty

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]GetProperty[, PROPERTY=variable]

Arguments


None

Keywords


Any property listed under IDLgrWindow Properties that contains the word “Yes” in the “Get” column of the properties table can be retrieved using this method. To retrieve the value of a property, specify the property name as a keyword set equal to a named variable that will contain the value of the property.

IDLitWindow::GetSelectedItems


The IDLitWindow::GetSelectedItems function method returns the objects (visualizations only, by default) currently selected within this window’s scene.

Syntax


Obj->[IDLitWindow::]GetSelectedItems([, /ALL] [, COUNT=named variable])

Return Value


Returns a vector of references to the objects currently selected within this window’s scene. If no objects are currently selected, this function returns a –1.

Arguments


None

Keywords

ALL

Set this keyword to return all classes of selected items. By default, only visualizations are returned.

COUNT

Set this keyword to a named variable that will contain the number of items returned by this method.

IDLitWindow::Init


The IDLitWindow::Init function method initializes the window object.

This function method initializes the IDLitWindow object, and should be called by the subclass’s Init method. This method also calls the superclass’s Init method.

Note: Init methods are special lifecycle methods, and as such cannot be called outside the context of object creation. This means that in most cases, you cannot call the Init method directly. There is one exception to this rule: if you write your own subclass of this class, you can call the Init method from within the Init method of the subclass.

Syntax


Obj = OBJ_NEW('IDLitWindow'[, PROPERTY=value])

or

Result = Obj->[IDLitWindow::]Init([, PROPERTY=value]) (In a lifecycle method only)

Return Value


When this method is called indirectly, as part of the call to the OBJ_NEW function, the return value is an object reference to the newly-created object.

When called directly within a subclass Init method, the return value is 1 if initialization was successful, or 0 otherwise.

Arguments


None

Keywords


Any property listed under IDLitWindow Properties that contains the word “Yes” in the “Init” column of the properties table can be initialized during object creation using this method. To initialize the value of a property, specify the property name as a keyword set equal to the appropriate property value.
