OOF2: The Manual
When the mouse is clicked on the Canvas, the pixel under the mouse click is highlighted, as shown in the figure. The coordinates of the pixel are displayed in the Toolbox. A new pixel may be chosen by either clicking again on the Canvas, or by typing new coordinates into the x and y boxes in the Toolbox and clicking the button. Either action invokes the OOF.Graphics_n.Toolbox.Pixel_Info.Query command.
The Clear button resets the toolbox and un-highlights the selected pixel by invoking OOF.Graphics_n.Toolbox.Pixel_Info.Clear.
The way in which the selected pixel is highlighted in the Canvas
may be changed by using the Layer Editor to alter the PixelInfoDisplay display methods that
are assigned to the topmost
Image. It will be
necessary to enable List
All Layers in the Settings menu first.
The top section shows data from the topmost
Imagein the display, but only if the topmost
Layeris not obscured by a
Layer. It displays the name of the
Image(actually, its path) and the RGB or HSV representation of the selected pixel's color.
The next section shows the name of the
Microstructureand the pixel groups that contain the selected pixel.
The final section shows the orientation of the pixel. If the pixel has a
Property's orientation is displayed, as shown in the top part of Figure 4.8. If the pixel does not have an
Property, but the
Microstructurehas an orientation map, the orientation from the orientation map is displayed, as shown in the lower part of Figure 4.8.
At the top of the orientation information pane is a pulldown menu that changes the format in which the orientation is displayed. The orientation can be displayed in any of the formats that OOF2 understands, regardless of the format used by the orientation property or orientation map file. The orientation cannot be changed, despite the presence of sliders and input boxes in Figure 4.8.
