Detailed Description

abstract class specifies interface to map data

vtkAbstractMapper is an abstract class to specify interface between data and graphics primitives or software rendering techniques. Subclasses of vtkAbstractMapper can be used for rendering 2D data, geometry, or volumetric data.

virtual unsigned long vtkAbstractMapper::GetMTime (  )  [virtual]

Override Modifiedtime as we have added Clipping planes

Reimplemented from vtkObject.

Reimplemented in vtkGraphMapper, vtkDataSetMapper, vtkImageMapper, vtkMapper, and vtkPolyDataMapper2D.

virtual void vtkAbstractMapper::ReleaseGraphicsResources ( vtkWindow  )  [inline, virtual]

virtual double vtkAbstractMapper::GetTimeToDraw (  )  [virtual]

Get the time required to draw the geometry last time it was rendered

void vtkAbstractMapper::AddClippingPlane ( vtkPlane plane  ) 

Specify clipping planes to be applied when the data is mapped (at most 6 clipping planes can be specified).

void vtkAbstractMapper::RemoveClippingPlane ( vtkPlane plane  ) 

Specify clipping planes to be applied when the data is mapped (at most 6 clipping planes can be specified).

void vtkAbstractMapper::RemoveAllClippingPlanes (  ) 

Specify clipping planes to be applied when the data is mapped (at most 6 clipping planes can be specified).

virtual void vtkAbstractMapper::SetClippingPlanes ( vtkPlaneCollection  )  [virtual]

Get/Set the vtkPlaneCollection which specifies the clipping planes.

virtual vtkPlaneCollection* vtkAbstractMapper::GetClippingPlanes (  )  [virtual]

Get/Set the vtkPlaneCollection which specifies the clipping planes.

void vtkAbstractMapper::SetClippingPlanes ( vtkPlanes planes  ) 

An alternative way to set clipping planes: use up to six planes found in the supplied instance of the implicit function vtkPlanes.

void vtkAbstractMapper::ShallowCopy ( vtkAbstractMapper m  ) 

Make a shallow copy of this mapper.

Reimplemented in vtkMapper, vtkPolyDataMapper, and vtkPolyDataMapper2D.

static vtkDataArray* vtkAbstractMapper::GetScalars ( vtkDataSet input,
int  scalarMode,
int  arrayAccessMode,
int  arrayId,
const char *  arrayName,
int &  cellFlag 
) [static]

Internal helper function for getting the active scalars. The scalar mode indicates where the scalars come from. The cellFlag is a return value that is set when the scalars actually are cell scalars. (0 for point scalars, 1 for cell scalars, 2 for field scalars) The arrayAccessMode is used to indicate how to retrieve the scalars from field data, per id or per name (if the scalarMode indicates that).
