Description

GwyVectorLayer is a base class for GwyDataViewLayers displaying selections and handling user input. It is a GwyDataView component and it is not normally usable outside of it.

The layer takes the selection to display from its parent GwyDataView's container. The key under which the selection is found is set with gwy_vector_layer_set_selection_key(). The selection either can be put there beforehand (the corresponding selection type can be obtained with gwy_vector_layer_class_get_selection_type()) or gwy_vector_layer_ensure_selection() can be used to create it if it doesn't exist.

GwyVectorLayer provides two independent means to restrict user interaction with displayed selection: editability and focus. When a layer is set noneditable (see gwy_vector_layer_set_editable()), the user cannot modify displayed objects, however "object-chosen" is emitted normally. Focus (see gwy_vector_layer_set_focus()) on the other hand limits all possible interactions to a single selection object. It is possible although not very useful to combine both restrictions.

The other methods are rarely useful outside GwyDataView and/or layer implementation.

Functions

gwy_vector_layer_class_get_selection_type ()

GType
gwy_vector_layer_class_get_selection_type
                               (GwyVectorLayerClass *klass);

Returns the selection type of a vector layer class.

Note this is a class method, to get the type from an instance one can use gwy_vector_layer_get_selection_type(). To get the type from layer's GType one has to use g_type_class_peek().

Parameters

klass

A vector layer class.

 

Returns

The type of selection used by layers of class klass .

gwy_vector_layer_get_selection_type()

#define             gwy_vector_layer_get_selection_type(layer)

Gets the selection type of a vector layer.

This is a convenience wrapper around gwy_vector_layer_class_get_selection_type().

Parameters

layer

A vector layer.

 

gwy_vector_layer_set_selection_key ()

void
gwy_vector_layer_set_selection_key (GwyVectorLayer *layer,
                                    const gchar *key);

Sets the selection object to use by a vector layer.

Parameters

layer

A vector layer.

 

key

Container string key identifying the selection object.

 

gwy_vector_layer_get_selection_key ()

const gchar *
gwy_vector_layer_get_selection_key (GwyVectorLayer *layer);

Gets the key identifying selection this vector layer displays.

Parameters

layer

A vector layer.

 

Returns

The string key, or NULL if it isn't set.

gwy_vector_layer_ensure_selection ()

GwySelection *
gwy_vector_layer_ensure_selection (GwyVectorLayer *layer);

Ensures a vector layer's selection exist in data container.

This method can be called only when layer is plugged into a data view and it has a selection key set. If the data container contains a selection under the specified key the selection is returned. If there is none, a selection of appropriate type is created and put to the container first.

Provided the above conditions are met this method is suitable for just obtaining the selection object a vector layer uses too.

Parameters

layer

A vector layer.

 

Returns

The layer's selection (no reference is added).

gwy_vector_layer_get_focus ()

gint
gwy_vector_layer_get_focus (GwyVectorLayer *layer);

Gets focused object index.

Parameters

layer

A vector data view layer.

 

Returns

Focued object index, or -1 if no object is focused.

gwy_vector_layer_set_focus ()

gboolean
gwy_vector_layer_set_focus (GwyVectorLayer *layer,
                            gint focus);

Focues on one selection object.

When a selection object is focused, it becomes the only one user can interact with. More precisely, "object-chosen" signal is emitted only for this object, and if the layer is editable only this object can be modified by the user.

Parameters

layer

A vector data view layer.

 

focus

Index of object to focus on, use -1 to unfocus (allow interaction with any object).

 

Returns

TRUE if the object was focused, FALSE on failure. Failure can be caused by user currently moving another object, wrong object index, or the feature being unimplemented in layer .

gwy_vector_layer_get_editable ()

gboolean
gwy_vector_layer_get_editable (GwyVectorLayer *layer);

Gets editability of a vector layer.

Parameters

layer

A vector data view layer.

 

Returns

TRUE if layer is edtiable, FALSE if it is not editable.

gwy_vector_layer_set_editable ()

void
gwy_vector_layer_set_editable (GwyVectorLayer *layer,
                               gboolean editable);

Sets a vector layer editability.

It is an error to attempt to set a layer non-editabile while it is being edited.

When a layer is set noneditable, the user cannot change the selection. However, "object-chosen" signal is still emitted.

Parameters

layer

A vector data view layer.

 

editable

TRUE to set layer editable, FALSE to set it noneditable.

 

gwy_vector_layer_draw ()

void
gwy_vector_layer_draw (GwyVectorLayer *layer,
                       GdkDrawable *drawable,
                       GwyRenderingTarget target);

Draws layer on given drawable (which should be a GwyDataView window).

Parameters

layer

A vector data view layer.

 

drawable

A drawable to draw on.

 

target

Rendering target.

 

gwy_vector_layer_button_press ()

                               GdkEventButton *event);
