Detailed Description

Superclass of binary file readers.

vtkImageReader2Factory: This class is used to create a vtkImageReader2 object given a path name to a file. It calls CanReadFile on all availiable readers until one of them returns ture. The availiable reader list comes from three places. In the InitializeReaders function of this class, built-in VTK classes are added to the list, users can call RegisterReader, or users can create a vtkObjectFactory that has CreateObject method that returns a new vtkImageReader2 sub class when given the string "vtkImageReaderObject". This way applications can be extened with new readers via a plugin dll or by calling RegisterReader. Of course all of the readers that are part of the vtk release are made automatically availiable.

Member Function Documentation

static vtkImageReader2Factory* vtkImageReader2Factory::New  )  [static]

Create an object with Debug turned off, modified time initialized to zero, and reference counting on.

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

virtual const char* vtkImageReader2Factory::GetClassName  )  [virtual]

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

static int vtkImageReader2Factory::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 vtkTypeRevisionMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

virtual int vtkImageReader2Factory::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 vtkTypeRevisionMacro found in vtkSetGet.h.

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

static vtkImageReader2Factory* vtkImageReader2Factory::SafeDownCast vtkObject o  )  [static]

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

void vtkImageReader2Factory::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 vtkObject.

static void vtkImageReader2Factory::RegisterReader vtkImageReader2 r  )  [static]

registered readers will be queried in CreateImageReader2 to see if they can load a given file.

static vtkImageReader2* vtkImageReader2Factory::CreateImageReader2 const char *  path  )  [static]

open the image file, it is the callers responsibility to call Delete on the returned object. If no reader is found, null is returned.

static void vtkImageReader2Factory::GetRegisteredReaders vtkImageReader2Collection  )  [static]

The caller must allocate the vtkImageReader2Collection and pass in the pointer to this method.

static void vtkImageReader2Factory::InitializeReaders  )  [static, protected]
