# panda3d.core.SliderTable¶

from panda3d.core import SliderTable

class SliderTable

Stores the total set of VertexSliders that the vertices in a particular GeomVertexData object might depend on.

This is similar to a TransformTable, but it stores VertexSliders instead of VertexTransforms, and it stores them by name instead of by index number. Also, it is only used when animating vertices on the CPU, since GPU’s don’t support morphs at this point in time.

Return type

SliderTable

isRegistered() → bool

Returns true if this table has been registered. Once it has been registered, the set of sliders in a SliderTable may not be further modified; but it must be registered before it can be assigned to a Geom.

static registerTable(table: SliderTable) → SliderTable

Registers a SliderTable for use. This is similar to GeomVertexFormat.registerFormat(). Once registered, a SliderTable may no longer be modified (although the individual VertexSlider objects may modify their reported sliders).

This must be called before a table may be used in a Geom. After this call, you should discard the original pointer you passed in (which may or may not now be invalid) and let its reference count decrement normally; you should use only the returned value from this point on.

Return type

SliderTable

getNumSliders() → size_t

Returns the number of sliders in the table.

Return type

size_t

getSlider(n: size_t) → VertexSlider

Returns the nth slider in the table.

Return type

VertexSlider

getSliderRows(n: size_t) → SparseArray

Returns the set of rows (vertices) governed by the nth slider in the table.

Return type

SparseArray

findSliders(name: InternalName) → SparseArray

Returns a list of slider indices that represent the list of sliders with the indicated name, or an empty SparseArray if no slider in the table has that name.

Return type

SparseArray

hasSlider(name: InternalName) → bool

Returns true if the table has at least one slider by the indicated name, false otherwise.

isEmpty() → bool

Returns true if the table has no sliders, false if it has at least one.

getModified(current_thread: Thread) → UpdateSeq

Returns a sequence number that’s guaranteed to change at least when any VertexSliders in the table change. (However, this is only true for a registered table. An unregistered table may or may not reflect an update here when a VertexSlider changes.)

Return type

setSlider(n: size_t, slider: VertexSlider) → None

Replaces the nth slider. Only valid for unregistered tables.

setSliderRows(n: size_t, rows: SparseArray) → None

Replaces the rows affected by the nth slider. Only valid for unregistered tables.

removeSlider(n: size_t) → None

Removes the nth slider. Only valid for unregistered tables.

addSlider(slider: VertexSlider, rows: SparseArray) → size_t

Adds a new slider to the table, and returns the index number of the new slider. Only valid for unregistered tables.

Return type

size_t

write(out: ostream) → None
static getClassType() → TypeHandle
Return type

TypeHandle

getSliders() → list
property modified

Returns a sequence number that’s guaranteed to change at least when any VertexSliders in the table change. (However, this is only true for a registered table. An unregistered table may or may not reflect an update here when a VertexSlider changes.)
