CGCOLORFILL

CGCOLORFILL
  Provides a device-independent and color-model-independent way to fill a polygon
  with a particular color. This is a wrapper to the PolyFill command in IDL.

Params


    x: in, required, type=number
        A vector argument providing the X coordinates of the points to be connected.
        The vector must contain at least three elements. If only one argument is
        specified, X must be an array of either two or three vectors (i.e., (2,*)
        or (3,*)). In this special case, the vector X[0,*] specifies the X values,
        X[1,*] specifies Y, and X[2,*] contain the Z values.
    y: in, required, type=number
        A vector argument providing the Y coordinates of the points to be connected.
        Y must contain at least three elements.
    z: in, optional, type=number
        An optional vector argument providing the Z coordinates of the points to be
        connected. Z must contain at least three elements.

Keywords


    checkforfinite: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        If the input data is not finite (i.e., it contains NaNs), then the drawing of
        the polygons will be affected. This is particularly true if you are drawing polygons
        on map projections using the `Map_Object` keyword. The program could check all input for NaNs, but
        this would be quite slow when a great number of polygons are being drawn. For this reason,
        the program only checks polygon input when this keyword is set. Only polygons containing all
        finite values are drawn when this keyword is set.
    color: in, optional, type=string/byte/integer/long, default='rose'
        The name of the fill color. Color names are those used with cgColor.
        This value can also be a long integer or an index into the current color
        table.
    device: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set to indicate the polygon vertices are in device coordinates.
    map_object: in, optional, type=object
        If you are drawing on a map projection set up with Map_Proj_Init
        and using projected meter space, rather than lat/lon space, then you can use this
        keyword to provide a cgMap object that will allow you to convert the `x` and `y`
        parameters from longitude and latitude, respectively, to projected meter space
        before drawing. X and Y must both be present.
    normal: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set to indicate the polygon vertices are in normalized coordinates.
    position: in, optional, type=float
        Set to the normal four-element normalized position array for locating
        a rectangular region in a graphics window. If this keyword is used, the
        x and y parameters are constructed from this position.
    window: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set this keyword to add the command to the current cgWindow application.
    _ref_extra: in, optional, type=appropriate
        Any other keywords to the IDL POLYFILL command may be used.
         

Examples


    Used like the IDL Polyfill command::
      IDL> cgColorFill, [0.25, 0.25, 0.75, 0.75, 0.25], [0.25, 0.75, 0.75, 0.25, 0.25], $
                /NORMAL, COLOR='blue'

History


    Change History::
        Written, 24 December 2010. DWF.
        In some cases, I was turning BYTE values to strings without converting to
            INTEGERS first. 30 Dec 2010. DWF.
        Moved setting to decomposed color before color selection process to avoid PostScript
            background problems when passed 24-bit color integers. 12 Jan 2011. DWF.
        Added WINDOW keyword. 24 Jan 2011. DWF.
        Modified error handler to restore the entry decomposition state if there is an error. 17 March 2011. DWF
        Modified to use cgDefaultColor for default color selection. 24 Dec 2011. DWF.
        Added a POSITION keyword to allow setting the color position in a graphics window. 24 Jan 2013. DWF.
        Added a MAP_OBJECT keyword to allow polygon filling on maps. 13 Dec 2013. DWF.
        Completely forgot to deconstruct a single parameter into component parts. 11 Jan 2014. DWF.
        Added CheckForFinite keyword to check output for NaN values before display. 22 Jan 2014. DWF.
