◆ GetUniqueID()

Int32 GetUniqueID ( ) const


◆ SetUniqueID()

void SetUniqueID ( Int32  id)


◆ GetChannelFlags()

FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG GetChannelFlags ( ) const

Gets the enable state flags for the layers channel, e.g. the overall on/off (enable) or value, color and slope states

The channel flags for the layer see FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG.

◆ SetChannelFlags()

void SetChannelFlags ( FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG  flags)

Sets channel flags to the passed FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG value

[in]flagsThe flags state to be set for this layer.

◆ GetChannelFlag()

Bool GetChannelFlag ( FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG  flag) const

Gets a specific channel enabling state flag for the layer. e.g. the enable, value, color or slope states

[in]flagThe flag to retrieve.
True if the flag is set, False if it is clear.

◆ SetChannelFlag()

void SetChannelFlag ( FIELDLAYER_CHANNELFLAG  flag,
Bool  state = true 

Sets a specific channel flag state for the layer, e.g. the overall enabling, value, color or slope states

[in]flagThe flag to set or clear.
[in]state(Optional) True to set the state to on, False to disable (clear) the flag for the layer.

◆ InitSampling()

maxon::Result<void> InitSampling ( const FieldInfo info,
FieldShared shared 

Initializes the Field Sampling, Must be called prior to invoking the Sample function. FreeSampling must be called to free any memory allocated during InitSampling after this.

[in]infoA fully populated FieldInfo structure.
[in,out]sharedData shared between fields/layers.
OK on success.

◆ Sample()

maxon::Result<void> Sample ( const FieldInput inputs,
FieldOutputBlock outputs,
const FieldInfo info 
) const

Samples the FieldLayer. InitSampling must be called prior to use, and FreeSampling must be called after use. NOTE: Sample does not receive the SharedData. If a layer needs access to it, it can keep a reference on it or copy parts of it in InitSampling.

[in]inputsThe points to sample in global space.
[in,out]outputsThe output arrays, must be allocated prior to use.
[in]infoA fully populated FieldInfo structure.
OK on success.

◆ Aggregate()

maxon::Result<void> Aggregate ( const FieldInput inputs,
const FieldOutputBlock outputs,
const FieldInfo info 


[in]inputsThe inputs.
[in]outputsThe outputs.
[in]infoThe information.

[in,out]sharedData shared between fields/layers.

◆ IsEqual()

Bool IsEqual ( FieldLayer comp) const

Query if this layer is equal to another. Used by the undo system and to update dirtiness as required.

FIELDLAYER_FLAG GetLayerFlags ( ) const

Gets the layer execution and display flags, see FIELDLAYER_FLAG.

The layer flags.

◆ GetLinkedObject()

FieldLayerLink GetLinkedObject ( BaseDocument doc) const

The linked object and potentially secondary data in a FieldLayerLink structure.

◆ SetLinkedObject()

Bool SetLinkedObject ( const FieldLayerLink link)
