Help with Gizmo and Movie
Sat, 01/10/2015 - 05:06 pm
I am building a user based application so I need to make it quite simple. Easy enough for manager to use but not simple that a VP can use it.
Objective: I have a 3D wave with slices of data taken at various times and corresponding temperatures. All the tool control done in Igor and works fine.
The request is to create a movie of the data showing the time and temperature progression of the sample.
Show I start off with Gizmo and a surface plot so far so good.
I would like to create a control bar with a slider so the user can scroll through the time slices. Is there a way to add a control bar or some other panel attached to the Gizmo window. It appears that the 2D graph control are not available for a gizmo window.
It appears I need to call a special function (appendFrameButtonProc("")) to add a frame for a gizmo movie and I can deal with that. what I would like to have in the movie is a display of the temperature at each frame of the movie as it progresses through the data. It appears if I add annotation it is appended as static text. What is the best way to make it dynamic so I can update with the appropriate data.
This is all very simple in 2D, but I am stumbling a bit with Gizmo.
Thanks in advance.
