Description

GwyParams represents a set of module parameter values. Usually it is created by loading the values from settings using gwy_params_new_from_settings(). It can also be created as empty – it is necessary to tie it to a definition set using gwy_params_set_def() then. In any case, the tie to the definitions is permanent. If you need parameter value set for different definitions create a new object.

GwyParams is a “dumb” object, replacing a plain C struct holding the parameter values. Beside making sure parameter values stay in defined ranges, it does not do much. In particular it does not emit any singals.

Each parameter type has its own getters and setters, such as gwy_params_get_boolean() and gwy_params_set_boolean(). For a few parameter types there may also be dedicated helper functions such as gwy_params_get_masking() which encapsulate common logic when dealing with these parameter.

The setters and reset functions should be seldom needed. When running module GUI, parameter values should be set by GwyParamTable functions to ensure the updates cascade as expected. GwyParamTable also has a reset function. Setters do not cause any GUI response and, hence, has no place in most modules as they would lead to an inconsistent state. Sometimes, however, setting parameter values directly can be useful in non-GUI paths which perform extra validation or ensure complex invariants.

Functions

gwy_params_new ()

GwyParams *
gwy_params_new (void);

Creates a new empty parameter value set.

The created object is empty (and useless) until parameter definitions are set with gwy_params_set_def(). However, in modules the parameters are normally instantiated using gwy_params_new_from_settings().

Returns

A new empty parameter value set.

Since: 2.59

gwy_params_set_def ()

void
gwy_params_set_def (GwyParams *params,
                    GwyParamDef *pardef);

Sets the definitions of parameters a GwyParams should use.

Once set, the definitions are fixed. One GwyParams object cannot be used with multiple definitions.

Parameters

params

A parameter value set.

 

pardef

Set of parameter definitions.

 

Since: 2.59

gwy_params_get_def ()

GwyParamDef *
gwy_params_get_def (GwyParams *params);

Gets the definitions object for a parameter set.

Parameters

params

A parameter value set.

 

Returns

The set of parameter definitions.

Since: 2.59

gwy_params_new_from_settings ()

GwyParams *
gwy_params_new_from_settings (GwyParamDef *pardef);

Creates a new parameter value set with given definition and loads values from settings.

The definitions pardef must have function name set.

Parameters

pardef

A new parameter value set.

Since: 2.59

gwy_params_load_from_settings ()

void
gwy_params_load_from_settings (GwyParams *params);

If mask is NULL the returned value is simply the parameter value.

If mask is a pointer then mask and the return value can be modified. The function will set mask to NULL if masking is GWY_MASK_IGNORE. Conversely, it will return GWY_MASK_IGNORE if mask is a pointer to NULL data field. In short, if a mask argument is passed a non-ignore masking mode is guaranteed to coincide with non-NULL mask.

gwy_params_set_xyz_id ()

gboolean
gwy_params_set_xyz_id (GwyParams *params,
                       gint id,
                       GwyAppDataId value);

Sets the value of an xyz data identifier parameter.

This function is seldom needed. See the introduction for discussion.

If value is not GWY_APP_DATA_ID_NONE then the XYZ data identified by value must currently exist.

Parameters

params

A set of parameter values.

 

id

Parameter identifier.

 

value

Value to set.

 

Returns

TRUE if parameter value has changed.

gwy_params_set_curve_map_id ()

gboolean
gwy_params_set_curve_map_id (GwyParams *params,
                             gint id,
                             GwyAppDataId value);

Sets the value of a curve map data identifier parameter.

This function is seldom needed. See the introduction for discussion.

If value is not GWY_APP_DATA_ID_NONE then the curve map data identified by value must currently exist.

Parameters

params

A set of parameter values.

 

id

Parameter identifier.

 

value

Value to set.

 

Returns

TRUE if parameter value has changed.

gwy_params_set_curve ()

gboolean
gwy_params_set_curve (GwyParams *params,
                      gint id,
                      gint value);

Sets the value of a graph or lawn curve number parameter.

This function is seldom needed. See the introduction for discussion.

Parameters

params

A set of parameter values.

 

id

Parameter identifier.

 

value

Value to set (a non-negative integer or -1).

 

Returns

TRUE if parameter value has changed.

gwy_params_randomize_seed ()

gint
gwy_params_randomize_seed (GwyParams *params,
                           gint id);

Randomizes the value of a random seed parameter.

You can use gwy_params_get_int() any number of times afterwards and obtain the same value.

This function is seldom needed. See the introduction for discussion. In the usual setup the seed is randomised when loaded from settings if the controlling randomization boolean is TRUE. Furthermore, GwyParamTable knows to randomize the seed when the randomization button is pressed.

Parameters

params

A set of parameter values.

 

id

Parameter identifier.

 

Returns

The new random seed value (for convenience).
