Detailed Description

draw symbols with text.

2000/12/10 20:08:24
Tim Smith who sponsored and encouraged the development of this class.
vtkLegendBoxActor is used to associate a symbol with a text string. The user specifies a vtkPolyData to use as the symbol, and a string associated with the symbol. The actor can then be placed in the scene in the same way that any other vtkActor2D can be used.

To use this class, you must define the position of the legend box by using the superclasses' vtkActor2D::Position coordinate and Position2 coordinate. Then define the set of symbols and text strings that make up the menu box (as well as properties such as font). The class will scale the symbols and text to fit in the legend box defined by (Position,Position2). Optional features like turning on a border line and setting the spacing between the border and the symbols/text can also be set.

Member Function Documentation

virtual const char* vtkLegendBoxActor::GetClassName   [virtual]

Return the class name as a string. This method is defined in all subclasses of vtkObject with the vtkTypeMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

int vtkLegendBoxActor::IsTypeOf const char *    type [static]

Return 1 if this class type is the same type of (or a subclass of) the named class. Returns 0 otherwise. This method works in combination with vtkTypeMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::IsA const char *    type [virtual]

Return 1 if this class is the same type of (or a subclass of) the named class. Returns 0 otherwise. This method works in combination with vtkTypeMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

vtkLegendBoxActor* vtkLegendBoxActor::SafeDownCast vtkObject   o [static]

Will cast the supplied object to vtkObject* is this is a safe operation (i.e., a safe downcast); otherwise NULL is returned. This method is defined in all subclasses of vtkObject with the vtkTypeMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

void vtkLegendBoxActor::PrintSelf ostream &    os,
vtkIndent    indent

Methods invoked by print to print information about the object including superclasses. Typically not called by the user (use Print() instead) but used in the hierarchical print process to combine the output of several classes.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

vtkLegendBoxActor* vtkLegendBoxActor::New   [static]

Instantiate object with a rectangle in normaled view coordinates of (0.2,0.85, 0.8, 0.95).

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetNumberOfEntries int    num

Specify the number of entries in the legend box.

int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetNumberOfEntries   [inline]

Definition at line 93 of file vtkLegendBoxActor.h.

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetEntry int    i,
vtkPolyData   symbol,
const char *    string,
float    color[3]

Add an entry to the legend box. You must supply a vtkPolyData to be used as a symbol (it can be NULL) and a text string (which also can be NULL). The vtkPolyData is assumed to be defined in the x-y plane, and the text is assumed to be a single line in height. Note that when this method is invoked previous entries are deleted. Also supply a text string and optionally a color. (If a color is not specified, then the entry color is the same as this actor's color.) (Note: use the set methods when you use SetNumberOfEntries().)

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetEntrySymbol int    i,
vtkPolyData   symbol

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetEntryString int    i,
const char *    string

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetEntryColor int    i,
float    color[3]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetBold int    [virtual]

Enable/Disable bolding legend entries.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetBold   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::BoldOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::BoldOff   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetItalic int    [virtual]

Enable/Disable italicizing legend entries.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetItalic   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ItalicOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ItalicOff   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetShadow int    [virtual]

Enable/Disable creating shadows on the legend entries. Shadows make the text easier to read.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetShadow   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ShadowOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ShadowOff   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetFontFamily int    [virtual]

Set/Get the font family for the legend entries. Three font types are available: Arial (VTK_ARIAL), Courier (VTK_COURIER), and Times (VTK_TIMES).

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetFontFamily   [virtual]

void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetFontFamilyToTimes   [inline]

Definition at line 136 of file vtkLegendBoxActor.h.

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetBorder int    [virtual]

Set/Get the flag that controls whether a border will be drawn around the legend box.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetBorder   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::BorderOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::BorderOff   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetLockBorder int    [virtual]

Set/Get the flag that controls whether the border and legend placement is locked into the rectangle defined by (Position,Position2). If off, then the legend box will adjust its size so that the border fits nicely around the text and symbols. (The ivar is off by default.) Note: the legend box is guaranteed to lie within the original border definition.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetLockBorder   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::LockBorderOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::LockBorderOff   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetPadding int    [virtual]

Set/Get the padding between the legend entries and the border. The value is specified in pixels.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetPadding   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::SetScalarVisibility int    [virtual]

Turn on/off flag to control whether the symbol's scalar data is used to color the symbol. If off, the color of the vtkLegendBoxActor is used.

virtual int vtkLegendBoxActor::GetScalarVisibility   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ScalarVisibilityOn   [virtual]

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ScalarVisibilityOff   [virtual]

void vtkLegendBoxActor::ShallowCopy vtkProp   prop [virtual]

Shallow copy of this scaled text actor. Overloads the virtual vtkProp method.

Reimplemented from vtkActor2D.

virtual void vtkLegendBoxActor::ReleaseGraphicsResources vtkWindow   [virtual]

WARNING: INTERNAL METHOD - NOT INTENDED FOR GENERAL USE DO NOT USE THIS METHOD OUTSIDE OF THE RENDERING PROCESS. Release any graphics resources that are being consumed by this actor. The parameter window could be used to determine which graphic resources to release.
