brown.core.path

classes

A vector path whose points can be anchored to other objects.

If a Path is in a Flowable, any point anchors in the path should be anchored to objects in the same Flowable, or undefined behavior may occur. Likewise, if a Path is not in a Flowable, all point anchors should not be in one either.

Render a horizontal slice of a path.

If this proves to be a performance bottleneck in the future, it is very possible to optimize this to create PathInterfaces which reuse QPainterPaths.

Args: pos (Point): The doc-space position of the slice beginning (at the top-left corner of the slice) clip_start_x (Unit): The starting x position in the path of the slice clip_width (Unit): The horizontal length of the slice to be rendered

Returns: None

__init__ (pos, pen=None, brush=None, parent=None) permalink view source

overriden from GraphicObject

arguments:

pos (Point or init tuple): The position of the path root.

pen (Pen): The pen to draw outlines with.

brush (Brush): The brush to draw outlines with.

parent (GraphicObject): The parent object or None

properties

length: Unit The breakable length of the path. permalink view source

overriden from GraphicObject

This is calculated automatically from path contents. By extension, this means that by default all Path objects will automatically wrap in Flowables.

read-only.

current_draw_pos: Point The current drawing position relative to self.pos. permalink view source

This is the location from which operations like line_to() will draw.

To change this without connecting the path to the new position, use move_to().

read-only.

inherited properties

interfaces: set(GraphicObjectInterface) The interfaces for this object permalink view source

Interface objects are created upon calling GraphicObject.render()

Typically each GraphicObject will have one interface for each flowable line it appears in. Objects which fit completely in one visual line will typically have exactly one interface.

If this is an empty set, the object has not been rendered yet with the render() method.

pos: Point The position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

x: Unit The x position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

y: Unit The x position of the object relative to its parent. permalink view source

pen: Pen The pen to draw outlines with permalink view source

brush: Brush The brush to draw outlines with permalink view source

As a convenience, this may be set with a hex color string for a solid color brush of that color. For brushes using alpha channels and non-solid-color fill patterns, a fully initialized brush must be passed to this.

inherited from GraphicObject

parent: GraphicObject The parent object. permalink view source

If this is set to None, it defaults to the first page of the document.

inherited from GraphicObject

children: set(GraphicObject) All objects who have self as their parent. permalink view source

inherited from GraphicObject

descendants: iter[GraphicObject] All of the objects in the children subtree. permalink view source

This recursively searches all of the object's children (and their children, etc.) and provides an iterator over them.

The current implementation performs a simple recursive DFS over the tree, and has the potential to be rather slow.

read-only.

inherited from GraphicObject

ancestors: iter[GraphicObject] All ancestors of this object. permalink view source

Follows the chain of parents until a document page is reached. The iterable will not include the document Page.

The order begins with self.parent and traverses upward in the tree.

flowable: Flowable or None The flowable this object belongs in. permalink view source

page_index: The index of the page this object appears on. permalink view source

>>> from brown.core import brown; brown.setup()
>>> some_object = GraphicObject((Mm(20), Mm(50)),
...                             parent=brown.document.pages[5])

class methods

straight_line (start, stop, pen=None, brush=None, parent=None) permalink view source

Path: Constructor for a straight line

arguments:

start (Point or init tuple): Starting position relative to the parent

stop (Point or init tuple): Ending position relative to the parent.

pen (Pen): The pen to draw outlines with.

brush (Brush): The brush to draw outlines with.

parent (GraphicObject): The parent object or None

returns:

inherited from Path

inherited class methods

map_between_items (source, destination) permalink view source

Find a GraphicObject's position relative to another GraphicObject

arguments:

source (GraphicObject): The object to map from

destination (GraphicObject): The object to map to

returns:

Point: The canvas position of destination relative to source

inherited from GraphicObject

methods

line_to (x, y, parent=None) permalink view source

Draw a path from the current position to a new point.

arguments:

x (Unit): The end x position

y (Unit): The end y position

parent (GraphicObject or Page): An optional parent, whose position the target coordinate will be relative to.

returns:

None

Connect a path from the current position to a new position specified by x and y, and move self.current_draw_pos to the new point.

A point parent may be passed as well, anchored the target point to a separate GraphicObject. In this case, the coordinates passed will be considered relative to the parent.

move_to (x, y, parent=None) permalink view source

Close the current sub-path and start a new one.

arguments:

x (Unit): The end x position

y (Unit): The end y position

parent (GraphicObject or Page): An optional parent, whose position the target coordinate will be relative to.

returns:

None

A point parent may be passed as well, anchored the target point to a separate GraphicObject. In this case, the coordinates passed will be considered relative to the parent.

close_subpath () permalink view source

Close the current sub-path and start a new one at the local origin.

returns:

None

This is equivalent to move_to((Unit(0), Unit(0)))

cubic_to (self, control_1_x, control_1_y, control_2_x, control_2_y, end_x, end_y, control_1_parent=None, control_2_parent=None, end_parent=None) permalink view source

Draw a cubic bezier curve from the current position to a new point.

arguments:

control_1_x (Unit): The x coordinate of the first control point.

control_1_y (Unit): The y coordinate of the first control point.

control_2_x (Unit): The x coordinate of the second control point.

control_2_y (Unit): The y coordinate of the second control point.

end_x (Unit): The x coordinate of the curve target.

end_y (Unit): The y coordinate of the curve target.

control_1_parent (GraphicObject or Page): An optional parent for the first control point. Defaults to self.

control_2_parent (GraphicObject or Page): An optional parent for the second control point. Defaults to self.

end_parent (GraphicObject or Page): An optional parent for the curve target. Defaults to self.

returns:

None
