Thanks, I will look into the Javadoc issue. I've been trying to keep the
javadoc jar file in sync with the releases but I must have a mistake in my
Regarding the box size, here is the code snippet from the subs.py that does
this -- you'll have to cast it into Java, though...unless you're using Jython!
def setBoxSize(self, percent=.70, clip=1, showBox=1, snap=0):
Set the size of the VisAD 'box' for the <display> as a percentage
(fraction). The default is .70 (70%). If <clip> is true, the
display will be clipped at the border of the box; otherwise, data
displays may spill over. If <showBox> is true, the wire-frame will
be shown; otherwise, it will be turned off. If <snap> is true, the
box will be reoriented to an upright position.
if (not snap) or (self.pcMatrix == None):
if len(self.pcMatrix) > 10:
dr = self.getDisplayRenderer();
if isinstance(dr, DisplayRendererJ3D):
dr.setClip(0, clip, 1., 0.0, 0.0, -1.);
dr.setClip(1, clip, -1., 0.0, 0.0, -1.);
dr.setClip(2, clip, 0.0, 1., 0.0, -1.);
dr.setClip(3, clip, 0.0, -1., 0.0, -1.);
#dr.setClip(4, 1, 0.0, 0.0, 1., -1.);
#dr.setClip(5, 1, 0.0, 0.0, -1., -1.);
elif isinstance(dr, DisplayRendererJ2D):
dr.setClip(-1., 1., -1., 1.)
if a similar message from me is always on the list then it is a mistake,
but as I can't see it, I will ask this question a second time.
For my current project I have to compose pictures from different plots
to generate a video from them. The off screen rendering works fine. The
only problem is that the images from the off screen displays have a
large empty border around the plots. So the question is, how can I
reduce this border programmatically?
PS: I suggest to repackage the Javadoc jar file. I have noticed the
email from tom that there is a new build of VisAD. The size of the docs
jar file is far to high. It contains the documentation twice under a
folder called docs. One time as the documentation itself ordered into
different sub folders and the second time as a jar file of these folders.
