Implemented Interfaces

GwyDataView implements AtkImplementorIface and GtkBuildable.

Includes

#include <libgwydgets/gwydgets.h>

Description

GwyDataView is a basic two-dimensional data display widget. The actual rendering is performed by one or more GwyDataViewLayer's, pluggable into the data view. Each layer generally displays different data field from the container supplied to gwy_data_view_new().

A base layer (set with gwy_data_view_set_base_layer()) must be always present, and normally it is always a GwyLayerBasic.

Other layers are optional. Middle, or alpha, layer (set with gwy_data_view_set_alpha_layer()) used to display masks is normally always a GwyLayerMask. Top layer, if present, is a GwyVectorLayer allowing to draw selections with mouse and otherwise interace with the view, it is set with gwy_data_view_set_top_layer().

The size of a data view is affected by two factors: zoom and outer constraints. If an explicit size set by window manager or by Gtk+ means, the view scales the displayed data to fit into this size (while keeping x/y ratio). Zoom controlls the size a data view requests, and can be set with gwy_data_view_set_zoom().

Several helper functions are available for transformation between screen coordinates in the view and physical coordinates in the displayed data field: gwy_data_view_coords_xy_to_real(), gwy_data_view_get_xmeasure(), gwy_data_view_get_hexcess(), and others. Physical coordinates are always taken from data field displayed by base layer.

Functions

gwy_data_view_new ()

GtkWidget *
gwy_data_view_new (GwyContainer *data);

Creates a new data-displaying widget for data .

A newly created GwyDataView doesn't display anything. You have to add some layers to it, at least a base layer with gwy_data_view_set_base_layer(), and possibly others with gwy_data_view_set_alpha_layer() and gwy_data_view_set_top_layer().

The top layer is special. It must be a vector layer and can receive mouse and keyboard events.

The base layer it also special. It must be always present, and must not be transparent or vector.

Parameters

data

A GwyContainer containing the data to display.

 

Returns

A newly created data view as a GtkWidget.

gwy_data_view_get_base_layer ()

GwyPixmapLayer *
gwy_data_view_get_base_layer (GwyDataView *data_view);

Returns the base layer this data view currently uses.

A base layer should be always present.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The currently used base layer.

gwy_data_view_set_base_layer ()

void
gwy_data_view_set_base_layer (GwyDataView *data_view,
                              GwyPixmapLayer *layer);

Plugs layer to data_view as the base layer.

If another base layer is present, it's unplugged.

The layer must not be a vector layer. Theoretically, it can be NULL to use no base layer, but then data_view will probably display garbage.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

layer

A layer to be used as the base layer for data_view .

 

gwy_data_view_get_alpha_layer ()

GwyPixmapLayer *
gwy_data_view_get_alpha_layer (GwyDataView *data_view);

Returns the alpha layer this data view currently uses, or NULL if none is present.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The currently used alpha layer.

gwy_data_view_set_alpha_layer ()

void
gwy_data_view_set_alpha_layer (GwyDataView *data_view,
                               GwyPixmapLayer *layer);

Plugs layer to data_view as the alpha layer.

If another alpha layer is present, it's unplugged.

The layer must not be a vector layer. It can be NULL, meaning no alpha layer is to be used.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

layer

A layer to be used as the alpha layer for data_view .

 

gwy_data_view_get_top_layer ()

GwyVectorLayer *

A data view.

 

Returns

The currently used top layer.

gwy_data_view_set_top_layer ()

void
gwy_data_view_set_top_layer (GwyDataView *data_view,
                             GwyVectorLayer *layer);

Plugs layer to data_view as the top layer.

If another top layer is present, it's unplugged.

The layer must be a vector layer. It can be NULL, meaning no top layer is to be used.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

layer

A layer to be used as the top layer for data_view .

 

gwy_data_view_get_data_prefix ()

const gchar *
gwy_data_view_get_data_prefix (GwyDataView *data_view);

Gets the prefix for the container data channel that the data view is currently set to display.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The container data prefix (eg. "/0/data").

void
gwy_data_view_set_data_prefix (GwyDataView *data_view,
                               const gchar *prefix);

Sets the prefix for the container data channel to display in a data view.

This function only affects where the data view itself takes parameters from, it does not affect layer keys.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

prefix

Container prefix for data (eg. "/0/data").

 

gwy_data_view_get_hexcess ()

gdouble
gwy_data_view_get_hexcess (GwyDataView *data_view);

Return the horizontal excess of widget size to data size.

Do not use. Only useful for GwyDataWindow implementation.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The execess.

gwy_data_view_get_vexcess ()

gdouble
gwy_data_view_get_vexcess (GwyDataView *data_view);

Return the vertical excess of widget size to data size.

Do not use. Only useful for GwyDataWindow implementation.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The execess.

gwy_data_view_set_zoom ()

void
gwy_data_view_set_zoom (GwyDataView *data_view,
                        gdouble zoom);

Sets zoom of data_view to zoom .

Zoom greater than 1 means larger image on screen and vice versa.

Note window manager can prevent the window from resize and thus the zoom from change.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

zoom

A new zoom value.

 

gwy_data_view_get_zoom ()

gdouble
gwy_data_view_get_zoom (GwyDataView *data_view);

Returns current ideal zoom of a data view.

More precisely the zoom value requested by gwy_data_view_set_zoom(), if it's in use (real zoom may differ a bit due to pixel rounding). If zoom was set by explicite widget size change, real and requested zoom are considered to be the same.

When a resize is queued, the new zoom value is returned.

In other words, this is the zoom data_view would like to have. Use gwy_data_view_get_real_zoom() to get the real zoom.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The zoom as a ratio between ideal displayed size and base data field size.

gwy_data_view_get_real_zoom ()

gdouble
gwy_data_view_get_real_zoom (GwyDataView *data_view);

Returns current real zoom of a data view.

This is the zoom value a data view may not wish to have, but was imposed by window manager or other constraints. Unlike ideal zoom set by gwy_data_view_set_zoom(), this value cannot be set.

When a resize is queued, the current (old) value is returned.

Parameters

data_view

A data view.

 

Returns

The zoom as a ratio between real displayed size and base data field size.

gwy_data_view_get_data ()

GwyContainer *

The :data-prefix property is the container prefix the data displayed by this view lies under.

Note it is only used for items used by GwyDataView itself, layers have their own keys.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL

The “zoom” property

  “zoom”                     gdouble

The :zoom property is the ratio between displayed and real data size.

Flags: Read / Write

Allowed values: [0.0625,16]

Default value: 1

Signal Details

The “layer-plugged” signal

void
user_function (GwyDataView         *arg1,
               GwyDataViewLayerType gwydataview,
               gpointer             user_data)

The ::layer-plugged signal is emitted when a layer is plugged into a GwyDataView.

When a layer replaces an existing layer, ::layer-unplugged is emitted once the old layer is unplugged, then ::layer-plugged when the new is plugged.

Parameters

arg1

Which layer was plugged (a GwyDataViewLayerType value).

 

gwydataview

The GwyDataView which received the signal.

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run First

The “layer-unplugged” signal

void
user_function (GwyDataView         *arg1,
               GwyDataViewLayerType gwydataview,
               gpointer             user_data)

The ::layer-unplugged signal is emitted when a layer is unplugged from a GwyDataView.

When a layer replaces an existing layer, ::layer-unplugged is emitted once the old layer is unplugged, then ::layer-plugged when the new is plugged.

Parameters

arg1

Which layer was unplugged (a GwyDataViewLayerType value).

 

gwydataview

The GwyDataView which received the signal.

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run First

The “redrawn” signal

void
user_function (GwyDataView *gwydataview,
               gpointer     user_data)

The ::redrawn signal is emitted when GwyDataView redraws pixbufs after an update. That is, when it's the right time to get a new pixbuf from gwy_data_view_get_pixbuf().

Parameters

gwydataview

The GwyDataView which received the signal.

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run First

The “resized” signal

void
user_function (GwyDataView *gwydataview,
               gpointer     user_data)

The ::resized signal is emitted when GwyDataView wants to be resized, that is when the dimensions of base data field changes or square mode is changed. Its purpose is to subvert the normal resizing logic of GwyDataWindow (due to geometry hints, its size requests are generally ignored, so an explicit resize is needed). You should usually ignore it.

Parameters

gwydataview

The GwyDataView which received the signal.

 

user_data

user data set when the signal handler was connected.

 

Flags: Run First
