Registering Selection Environments and primitives

These functions are used to register your selection environment to the selection system. The environment is basically a collection of selection metaphors that will be available for a set of DataTypes.

You Register the Environment via addSelectionEnvironment(). Afterwards you can register DataTypes to the previously created environment with registerType(). The selection interactions defined in the environment will only be available, if the registered DataTypes exist.

Each DataType can consist of different primitives (e.g. a mesh usually consists of vertices edges and faces). Use addPrimitiveType() to register these primitives and remember the handles you got.

Here is a short example of how to add a new selection environment and register some data type and primitive type:

So in our plugin we first want to add a new selection environment:

emit addSelectionEnvironment("Mesh Object Selections", "Select Triangle Mesh Primitives.",
someIconPath + "mesh_selection.png", environmentHandle_);

Now, our handle to the newly created environment is in environmentHandle_. We should now see a new tab widget in the selection base tool box displaying our selection environment:

selectionEnvironment.png

We now want to register a specific data type for which we want to enable selection. Say DATA_TRIANGLE_MESH:

emit registerType(environmentHandle_, DATA_TRIANGLE_MESH);

Repeat this for as many data types as you want to handle in your plugin. Since triangle meshes normally consist of vertex, edge and face primitives, we want to enable selection for the three of them:

emit addPrimitiveType(environmentHandle_, "Select Vertices", iconPath + "vertexType.png", vertexType_);
emit addPrimitiveType(environmentHandle_, "Select Edges", iconPath + "edgeType.png", edgeType_);
emit addPrimitiveType(environmentHandle_, "Select Faces", iconPath + "faceType.png", faceType_);

The three variables of type SelectionInterface::PrimitiveType vertexType_, edgeType_ and faceType_ now hold the handles to the newly added primitive types. We use these to reference the types later on. For each registered primitive type, we now see a button appearing in the recently created environment tab in selection base plugin's tool box:

selectionPrimitives.png

The user can now chose which primitive type she wants to select via simply clicking one of these buttons (or more than one by holding the control key while clicking). We then go on with requesting the available selection metaphors in the next section.

virtual void registerType (QString _handleName, DataType _type)
 Register data type for a selection environment. More...
 
virtual void addPrimitiveType (QString _handleName, QString _name, QString _icon, PrimitiveType &_typeHandle)
 Provide selection for primitives other than the standard ones. More...
 
virtual void addSelectionEnvironment (QString _modeName, QString _description, QString _icon, QString &_handleName)
 Add a selection environment in order to provide selection functions for specific data type(s) More...
 

Enabling Selection Metaphors

The selection system provides a set of basic selection operations. These include toggle selection, volume lasso, surface lasso, painting, closest boundary and flood fill selection.

The interactions for these metaphors are controlled by the Base Selection Plugin. The results of these interactions are than passed on to the specific selection plugins.

These functions are used to tell the system, that you can handle the given selection metaphors in your plugin.

You can also add your custom selection mode via addCustomSelectionMode().

To continue the above example, we now want to make toggle, volume lasso as well a custom selection mode available for our data types:

emit showToggleSelectionMode(environmentHandle_, true, vertexType_ | edgeType_ | faceType_);
emit showVolumeLassoSelectionMode(environmentHandle_, true, vertexType_ | edgeType_ | faceType_);
emit addCustomSelectionMode(environmentHandle_, "My Custom Selection", "Description of my mode", someIconFile, vertexType_ | edgeType_);

In the last parameter we determine for which of the registered primitive types the selection metaphor will be available. Note that multiple primitive types have to be OR'ed. The selection metaphors as well as the available primitive types will be displayed in the selection pick tool bar:

selectionPickbar.png

Now each time the user uses the toggle selection metaphor slotToggleSelection() is called. See below for code examples on this.

virtual void showLassoSelectionMode (QString _handleName, bool _show, PrimitiveType _associatedTypes)
 Show lasso selection mode in a specified selection environment. More...
 
virtual void showVolumeLassoSelectionMode (QString _handleName, bool _show, PrimitiveType _associatedTypes)
 Show volume lasso selection mode in a specified selection environment. More...

 Show sphere selection mode in a specified selection environment. More...
 
virtual void showClosestBoundarySelectionMode (QString _handleName, bool _show, PrimitiveType _associatedTypes)
 Show closest boundary selection mode in a specified selection environment. More...

States of the selection system.

You can get the active data types, primitive types and if only target objects should be affected.

virtual void getActiveDataTypes (TypeList &_types)
 Get the data types that the currently active selection environment supports. More...
 
virtual void getActivePrimitiveType (PrimitiveType &_type)
 Get the primitive type that is selected. More...
 
virtual void targetObjectsOnly (bool &_targetsOnly)
 Indicates whether selection should be performed on target objects only. More...
 

File Interaction

Store and load selection data in an INI file. In the above example we would want something like this in order to store the current selection:

void MySelectionPlugin::slotSaveSelection(INIFile& _file) {
// Iterate over all triangle meshes and save
// the selections for all entity types
o_it != PluginFunctions::objectsEnd(); ++o_it) {
// Create section for each object
// Append object name to section identifier
QString section = QString("TriangleMeshSelection") + "//" + o_it->name();
if(!_file.section_exists(section)) {
_file.add_section(section);
} else {
continue;
}
// Store vertex selection
_file.add_entry(section, "VertexSelection", getVertexSelection(o_it->id()));
// Store edge selection
_file.add_entry(section, "EdgeSelection", getEdgeSelection(o_it->id()));
// Store face selection
_file.add_entry(section, "FaceSelection", getFaceSelection(o_it->id()));
}
}

This works analogously for loading selections.

virtual void slotLoadSelection (const INIFile &_file)
 Load selection for specific objects in the scene. More...
 
virtual void slotSaveSelection (INIFile &_file)
 Save selection for all objects in the scene. More...
 
virtual void loadSelection (int _objId, const QString &_filename)
 Scripting slot for loading selections. More...
 

Keyboard Interactions

Register keyboard shortcuts for your selection plugin by emitting the registerKeyShortcut() slot. For example:

// Select (a)ll, Control + A keys
emit registerKeyShortcut(Qt::Key_A, Qt::ControlModifier);
// (C)lear selection, C key
emit registerKeyShortcut(Qt::Key_C, Qt::NoModifier);

Now if the user presses a key, we can handle this by overriding slotKeyShortcutEvent(). Don't forget to test whether at least one of the registered primitives is active and whether we want to restrict to target objects only:

void MySelectionPlugin::slotKeyShortcutEvent(int _key, Qt::KeyboardModifiers _modifiers) {
SelectionInterface::PrimitiveType type = 0u;
if((type & (vertexType_ | edgeType_ | faceType_)) == 0) {
// No supported type is active
return;
}
bool targetsOnly = false;
emit targetObjectsOnly(targetsOnly);
// And so on...
}
virtual void registerKeyShortcut (int _key, Qt::KeyboardModifiers _modifiers=Qt::NoModifier)
 Register key shortcut. More...
 
virtual void slotKeyShortcutEvent (int _key, Qt::KeyboardModifiers _modifiers)
 One of the previously registered keys has been pressed. More...
 

User Interface controls

In many cases it is desired to offer selection operations such as "select all vertices" or "invert edge selection". For this purpose, use the addSelectionOperations() slot. In our example, we now add some of these functions using the following code:

QStringList vertexOperations;
vertexOperations.append("Select All Vertices");
vertexOperations.append("Invert Vertex Selection");
vertexOperations.append("Delete All Selected Vertices");
emit addSelectionOperations(environmentHandle_, vertexOperations, "Vertex Operations");

These operations will now appear in the selection environment tab of the selection base plugin:

selectionOperations.png

The user can now perform these operations by simply clicking the buttons. Each time one of the buttons has been pressed, slotSelectionOperation() is called. You will have to override this in order to provide such operations.

An example would be:

void MySelectionPlugin::slotSelectionOperation(QString _operation) {
SelectionInterface::PrimitiveType type = 0u;
// If none of our primitives is currently active
if((type & (vertexType_ | edgeType_ | faceType_)) == 0)
return;
// Test if operation should be applied to target objects only
bool targetsOnly = false;
emit targetObjectsOnly(targetsOnly);
if(_operation == "Select All Vertices") {
o_it != PluginFunctions::objectsEnd(); ++o_it) {
if (o_it->visible()) {
selectAllVertices(o_it->id());
}
// Don't forget this in order to update the render buffers
emit updatedObject(o_it->id(), UPDATE_SELECTION);
}
}
// ...and so on...
}
virtual void addSelectionOperations (QString _handleName, QStringList _operationsList, QString _category, PrimitiveType _type=0u)
 Add non-interactive selection operations for a specific primitive type. More...
 
virtual void slotSelectionOperation (QString _operation)
 A specific operation is requested. More...
 

Slots which have to be implemented to use the global interaction metaphors

If you enabled selection metaphors for your environment via the control functions you will have to implement the corresponding slots here. These will be called when the events occur.

Continuing the above example, we should now override the slots for the metaphors that we have already requested above. For instance, when using the toggle metaphor, we would want to handle a toggle operation only if the currently selected primitive type belongs to our plugin:

void MySelectionPlugin::slotToggleSelection(QPoint _mousePosition, PrimitiveType _currentType, bool _deselect) {
// Return if none of the currently active types is handled by this plugin
if((_currentType & (vertexType_ | edgeType_ | faceType_)) == 0) return;
// Only toggle target objects if requested
bool targetsOnly = false;
emit targetObjectsOnly(targetsOnly);
// Do the picking...
// ...and the actual selection
if(_currentType & vertexType_) {
// Vertex selection
}
if(_currentType & edgeType_) {
// Edge selection
}
// ...and so on...
}

)
inlinevirtual

Add a custom interactive selection mode.

If a plugin should provide an interactive selection mode other than the standard ones (which include toggle, lasso, volume lasso, sphere, closest boundary and flood fill selection), one can add a custom interactive selection mode via this signal. Once the custom mode is added, it will appear in the sub-menu for the associated selection environment. If the user chooses this mode in order to do selection, slotCustomSelection(QMouseEvent*,QString) is called. This signal returns the added identifier for this selection mode in parameter _identifier.

Parameters
_handleNameThe handle of the selection environment in which this mode should be available
_modeNameThe name of this mode (also button caption)
_descriptionA brief description of what the selection mode does
_iconPath to an icon which is used for this selection mode
_associatedTypesMake this mode available only for the specified types (OR'ed)
