panda3d.core.PGTop

from panda3d.core import PGTop
class PGTop

Bases: PandaNode

The “top” node of the new Panda GUI system. This node must be parented to the 2-d scene graph, and all PG objects should be parented to this node or somewhere below it. PG objects not parented within this hierarchy will not be clickable.

This node begins the special traversal of the PG objects that registers each node within the MouseWatcher and forces everything to render in a depth-first, left-to-right order, appropriate for 2-d objects.

__init__(name: str) → None
setMouseWatcher(watcher: MouseWatcher) → None

Sets the MouseWatcher pointer that the PGTop object registers its PG items with. This must be set before the PG items are active.

getMouseWatcher() → MouseWatcher

Returns the MouseWatcher pointer that the PGTop object registers its PG items with, or NULL if the MouseWatcher has not yet been set.

Return type

MouseWatcher

getGroup() → MouseWatcherGroup

Returns the MouseWatcherGroup pointer that the PGTop object registers its PG items with, or NULL if the MouseWatcher has not yet been set.

Return type

MouseWatcherGroup

setStartSort(start_sort: int) → None

Specifies the sort index that is assigned during the traversal to the first PGItem that is discovered during traversal. Subsequent PGItems will be assigned consecutively higher sort indexes.

This number is used by the MouseWatcher system to rank the clickable mouse regions in the same order in which the items are rendered, so that items on top will receive mouse priority.

Normally, it makes the most sense to leave this initial value at its default value of 0, unless you need the PGItems to have a particular sort value with respect to some other objects in the scene (particularly with a second PGTop node).

getStartSort() → int

Returns the sort index that is assigned during the traversal to the first PGItem that is discovered during traversal. See setStartSort().

static getClassType() → TypeHandle
Return type

TypeHandle
