2D Slider

This example demonstrates how to use a slider that is drawn in window coordinates - so if you move the scene the slider is not affected. Contrast this with the 3D slider widget that remains at a fixed location in the world coordinates.

If the callback is connected to InteractionEvent, the scene will update immediately. This is not ideal if the re-rendering takes significant time as it will make the interaction very choppy. If you want to move the slider and have the scene update when the mouse button is released, connect the callback to EndInteractionEvent instead.

Download and Build Slider2D

Click here to download Slider2D. and its CMakeLists.txt file.

Once the tarball Slider2D.tar has been downloaded and extracted,

cd Slider2D/build 
  • If VTK is installed:
cmake ..
  • If VTK is not installed but compiled on your system, you will need to specify the path to your VTK build:
cmake -DVTK_DIR:PATH=/home/me/vtk_build ..

Build the project:

make

and run it:

./Slider2D

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE: Be sure to add the VTK bin directory to your path. This will resolve the VTK dll's at run time.
