Detailed Description

create and manipulate unsorted lists of objects

vtkCollection is a general object for creating and manipulating lists of objects. The lists are unsorted and allow duplicate entries. vtkCollection also serves as a base class for lists of specific types of objects.

void vtkCollection::PrintSelf ( ostream &  os,

) [virtual]

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 in vtkAssemblyPath, vtkSocketCollection, vtkPolyDataCollection, vtkStructuredPointsCollection, vtkImageReader2Collection, vtkActorCollection, vtkCullerCollection, vtkLightCollection, vtkMapperCollection, vtkProp3DCollection, vtkRendererCollection, vtkRenderWindowCollection, and vtkVolumeCollection.

static vtkCollection* vtkCollection::New (  )  [static]

void vtkCollection::AddItem ( vtkObject  ) 

Add an object to the list. Does not prevent duplicate entries.

void vtkCollection::ReplaceItem ( int  i,

Replace the i'th item in the collection with a

Reimplemented in vtkSocketCollection.

void vtkCollection::RemoveItem ( int  i  ) 

Remove the i'th item in the list. Be careful if using this function during traversal of the list using GetNextItemAsObject (or GetNextItem in derived class). The list WILL be shortened if a valid index is given! If this->Current is equal to the element being removed, have it point to then next element in the list.

Reimplemented in vtkSocketCollection.

void vtkCollection::RemoveItem ( vtkObject  ) 

Remove an object from the list. Removes the first object found, not all occurrences. If no object found, list is unaffected. See warning in description of RemoveItem(int).

Reimplemented in vtkSocketCollection.

void vtkCollection::RemoveAllItems (  ) 

Remove all objects from the list.

Reimplemented in vtkSocketCollection.

int vtkCollection::IsItemPresent ( vtkObject  ) 

Search for an object and return location in list. If location == 0, object was not found.

int vtkCollection::GetNumberOfItems (  ) 

Return the number of objects in the list.

void vtkCollection::InitTraversal (  )  [inline]

Initialize the traversal of the collection. This means the data pointer is set at the beginning of the list.

Definition at line 87 of file vtkCollection.h.

void vtkCollection::InitTraversal ( vtkCollectionSimpleIterator cookie  )  [inline]

A reentrant safe way to iterate through a collection. Just pass the same cookie value around each time

Definition at line 93 of file vtkCollection.h.

vtkObject * vtkCollection::GetNextItemAsObject (  )  [inline]

Get the next item in the collection. NULL is returned if the collection is exhausted.

Definition at line 144 of file vtkCollection.h.

vtkObject* vtkCollection::GetItemAsObject ( int  i  ) 

Get the i'th item in the collection. NULL is returned if i is out of range

vtkObject * vtkCollection::GetNextItemAsObject ( vtkCollectionSimpleIterator cookie  )  [inline]

A reentrant safe way to get the next object as a collection. Just pass the same cookie back and forth.

Definition at line 159 of file vtkCollection.h.

vtkCollectionIterator* vtkCollection::NewIterator (  ) 

Get an iterator to traverse the objects in this collection.

virtual void vtkCollection::Register ( vtkObjectBase o  )  [virtual]

Participate in garbage collection.

Reimplemented from vtkObjectBase.

virtual void vtkCollection::UnRegister ( vtkObjectBase o  )  [virtual]

Participate in garbage collection.

Reimplemented from vtkObjectBase.

virtual void vtkCollection::DeleteElement ( vtkCollectionElement  )  [protected, virtual]

Reimplemented in vtkActor2DCollection.

virtual void vtkCollection::ReportReferences ( vtkGarbageCollector collector  )  [protected, virtual]
