ActiveCtrl Methods

The methods of the ActiveCtrl class are listed below. For a complete list of ActiveCtrl class members, see the ActiveCtrl Members topic.

Public Instance Methods

activateColor (inherited from DrawCtrl) Activates a color in the device, depending on the PolygonMode. If PolygonMode has the value Fill, the ambient part of Material will be set. Otherwise PenColor
Add (inherited from Entity) Adds a Entity E as child.
addChild (inherited from MNComponent) Adds an elment in the list.
checkuniquename (inherited from MNComponent) If the parent is setted, this method returns a name, consisting of value and a number, so that it is unique in his parent.
ChildByName (inherited from MNComponent) Retrieves the index of child by a name.
ChildByPathName (inherited from MNComponent) You can get a MNComponent by setting a fullpath relative to the given MNComponent. The names are seperated by "/".
MNComponent root = new MNComponent();
MNComponent a = new MNComponent();
MNComponent b = new MNComponent();
MNComponent c = new MNComponent();
a.Name = "Frank";
b.Name = "Joe";
c.Name = "Sam";
c.Parent = b;
b.Parent = a;
a.Parent = root;
MNComponent d = root.ChildByPathName("Frank/Joe/Sam");
// d is then the component c

ClickedPos An ActiveCtrl stores the posiions, where a mouseclick is done. This method gets the i-th position, where zero is the last.
ctrlCircle (inherited from DrawCtrl)Overloaded. Draws a controlled circle.
ctrlCurve (inherited from DrawCtrl) Draws an active Curve C, which will be highlighted by the HoverColor if the mouse moves over it. With the parameter Tag you can set informations to identify the curve in an other context.
CtrlDisplaylist (inherited from DrawCtrl) Draws a controlled display list
ctrlLine (inherited from DrawCtrl)Overloaded. Draws an active line from A to B, which will be highlighted by the HoverColor if the coursor crosses it. With the parameter Tag you can set informations to identify the line in an other context.
ctrlMarker (inherited from DrawCtrl)Overloaded. Draws an active marker, which will be highlighted by the HoverColor if the mousepcursor passes it. With the parameter Tag you can set informations to identify the marker in an other context.
ctrlPoly (inherited from DrawCtrl)Overloaded. Draws an active polygon a, which will be highlighted by the HoverColor if the cursor moves over it. With the parameter Tag you can set informations to identify the polygon in an other context.
CtrlRect (inherited from DrawCtrl)Overloaded. Draws a rectangle given by two points A and B. Additionally it draws 9 marker at the edgepoints, the midpoints of the lines and the center of the rectangle. For each marker a DrawCtrl.CtrlPointKind is set as Tag. So you can identify the marker with CurrentHit.Tag
CtrlRectMarker (inherited from DrawCtrl) Draws a rectangle given by two points A and B. It draws marker dependig on "MarkerCount". For each marker a DrawCtrl.CtrlPointKind is set as Tag. So you can identify the marker with CurrentHit.Tag
Equals (inherited from Object) 
EventHandled A very tough method: if you call EventHandled(), no one of the following ActiveCtrls gets a message from the eventServer of the device.
fullPath (inherited from MNComponent) Gives the full path of the component over all ancestors until a null-parent occurs. This parent is often called the root. To separate the names "/" is used.
GetEnumerator (inherited from MNComponent) Returns the Enumerator of an intern ArrayList
GetHashCode (inherited from Object) 
getName (inherited from MNComponent) Returns the name
getPath (inherited from MNComponent) Returns a path, whose member are separated by "/" beginning with "/"
GetPreprocess Setter method of PreProcess
getRoot (inherited from MNComponent) Implements the ISerializePath interface. If parent is null then it returns the object itself.
GetType (inherited from Object) 
InsertChild (inherited from MNComponent) Insert a MNComponentobject at position index.
LastPos Returns the ClickedPos, but calculated relative to the the plane, which is given by Base.BaseO, Base.BaseX and Base.BaseY.
MoveEventPosTo A call moves the EventServer to the determinated position in the Device.Eventserver. If you call for example MoveEventPos(0), you get all events before all the other activeCtrls.
MoveTO (inherited from MNComponent) Moves a children-component to a position
OverrideClickedPos Set the last clickedpos to a new value
Paint (inherited from DrawCtrl) Overrides the Paint-method and sets Penwidth, PenStyle and PenColor.
RemoveChild (inherited from MNComponent) Removes a component.
setClickedPos You set a position, to simulate a ClickedPos.
SetPos sets the relative position to the currentposion of the device
SetPreProcess Getter method of PreProcess
ToString (inherited from Object) 
Transform (inherited from Entity) Implements ITransform: the transformation will be multiplied by the Matrix T.
UpDate (inherited from Entity) Overrides the UpDate- method and informs the MNDevice, that the contents have changed.
UpDated (inherited from Entity) Overrides the UpDated-method and informs all devices in which the entity is visible. So a change of an entity arouses changings in all devices.
UpDating (inherited from Entity) Overrides the UpDating-method and informs all devices in which the entity will be drawn by a call of their Updating-method.

Protected Instance Methods

Disposed (inherited from MNComponent) Setzt den Parent auf null.
draw (inherited from Entity) From the Paint-method a 'draw' is called. It is better to override drawmetod than the Paintmethod, because in the Paintmethod some calls enclose the drawmethod ( for example the transformation will be setted ).
DrawFloat (inherited from DrawCtrl) Call the drawingmethods of those parts of a sketch, which should be fast changed (For example in a mouse move ). .
Finalize (inherited from Object) 
GetColor (inherited from DrawCtrl) Virutal getmethod of the Color-property
GetPosxy Protected get-method of the propertyPosxy
GetPosxyz Protected get-method of the propertyPosxyz
GetTransformation (inherited from Entity) GetMethod of the property Transformation
KeyDown Method is call when key is pushed down.
KeyPress Method is call when key is pressed.
KeyUp Method is call when a user loose a keybutton.
MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object) 
MouseDown A MouseDown event is invoked.
MouseMove A MouseMove event is invoked.
MouseUp A MouseUp event is invoked. MouseEventArgs
SetColor (inherited from DrawCtrl) Virutal setmethod of the Color-property
setDevice Setmethod of the Device-property
setParent Overrides the setParent-method and sets the MNDevice-property to all children, which are of type ActiveCtrl.
SetTransformation (inherited from Entity) Setmethod of the property Transformation
SetVisible (inherited from Entity) Virtual setmethod of the Visible-property.
