Field Detail

PLOTTERS_PROP

public static final String PLOTTERS_PROP
System property that may contain a colon-separated list of Plotter implementation class names (with no-arg constructors) to plug in at runtime. This is a bit scrappy - they will show up in all plot types, which probably is not appropriate.

Constructor Detail

GroupControlManager

public GroupControlManager(ControlStack stack,
                           uk.ac.starlink.ttools.plot2.PlotType plotType,
                           PlotTypeGui plotTypeGui,
                           TypedListModel<TopcatModel> tablesModel,
                           ZoneFactory zfact,
                           MultiConfigger baseConfigger,
                           TopcatListener tcListener)
Constructor.

Parameters:
stack - control stack which this object will manage
plotType - defines basic plot characteristics
plotTypeGui - defines GUI-specific plot characteristics
tablesModel - list of available tables
zfact - zone id factory
baseConfigger - configuration source for some global config options
tcListener - listener for TopcatEvents; this manager will arrange for it to listen to whatever is the currently selected TopcatModel
Method Detail

getStackActions

public Action[] getStackActions()
Description copied from interface: ControlManager
Returns a list of actions which can be performed to add controls to the stack.

Specified by:
getStackActions in interface ControlManager
Returns:
list of stack actions

createDefaultControl

public Control createDefaultControl(TopcatModel tcModel)
Description copied from interface: ControlManager
Returns a suitable control to add to the stack for a given table. It's useful to have something like this so that when the plot window is first shown, it displays some data rather than none. Even if the actual plot is not very meaningful, it gives the user a chance to get started with the GUI with a minimum of thought.

Specified by:
createDefaultControl in interface ControlManager
Parameters:
tcModel - initial table
Returns:
some control that will generate an example plot using table data

addLayer

public void addLayer(LayerCommand lcmd)
              throws LayerException
Description copied from interface: ControlManager
Adds a layer to the plot as specified by the given layer command. Ideally, appropriate changes should be made to the GUI as well, so the effect is just as if the user had added the layer by hand.

Specified by:
addLayer in interface ControlManager
Parameters:
lcmd - specifies the layer to add
Throws:
LayerException - if the layer can't be added
