Use vtkButtonWidget To Create 2D Button

We can use vtkButtonWidget to create 2D buttons in the render window. The vtkWidgetRepresentation object controls the button’s position and show button pictures. Write our class ButtonCallBack that inherits vtkCommand and use it to listen for vtkCommand::StateChangedEvent, then we can add our button click function in it. Finally, the widget Read more…

Delete vtkObjectBase Object

The interface vtkObjectBase::UnRegister will reduce the reference count for pointer and delete the pointer if the reference count becomes zero. vtkObjectBase::Delete <= vtkObjectBase::UnRegister <= vtkObjectBase::UnRegisterInternal <= delete ptr vtkSmartPointerBase::~vtkSmartPointerBase { vtkObjectBase* object = this->Object; if(object) { this->Object = nullptr; object->UnRegister(nullptr); } } We can get the reference count and consumer Read more…

VTK – A Simple Example Written In C++

The article shows how to create a simple vtk render window project. We need cmake and the visualization toolkit installed. This example uses C plus plus programming language to create and show a cone in the 3D world. CMakeLists.txt cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8) project(mytest) find_package( VTK REQUIRED ) include( ${VTK_USE_FILE} ) add_executable(${PROJECT_NAME} Read more…
