Method Detail

getLayers

TopcatLayer[] getLayers()
Returns the layers contributed by this control.

Returns:
layers

getLegendEntries

uk.ac.starlink.ttools.plot2.LegendEntry[] getLegendEntries()
Returns legend entries associated with this control.

Returns:
legend entries

submitReports

void submitReports(Map<LayerId,uk.ac.starlink.ttools.plot2.ReportMap> reports)
Accepts report information generated by plotting layers. The submitted map may contain entries unrelated to this layer. Null map values are permitted, with the same meaning as an empty map.

Parameters:
reports - per-layer plot reports for layers generated on behalf of this and possibly other controls

getCoordLabel

String getCoordLabel(String userCoordName)
Returns a text label associated with one of the user coords for this control, typically the name of the column or expression supplying the data. Null may be returned if there's no good answer.

Parameters:
userCoordName - name of one of the user value infos of an input coord for this control
Returns:
text label associated with user coordinate

getZoneSpecifier

uk.ac.starlink.ttools.plot2.config.Specifier<ZoneId> getZoneSpecifier()
Returns a specifier that determines which zone of a multi-zone plot this control's layers will be displayed in. If this control is known to be used in a single-zone context, null should be returned.

Returns:
zone id specifier, or null

getTableSelector

TablesListComboBox getTableSelector()
Returns the selection widget for choosing which table this control is working with. If this control does not use a table, null is returned. The assumption is (currently) that a given control uses a maximum of one table.

Returns:
table selector, or null
