Unigine::WidgetCanvas Class

Header:#include <UnigineWidgets.h>
Inherits:Widget

This class enables to create a canvas on which lines, polygons and a text can be drawn. It performs clipping of the visible region while rendering.

Notice
A polygon can be not only a triangle but also a rectangle, pentagon and so on: it can have any number of sides. For example, if you add 4 points to the canvas by using the addPolygonPoint() function, the 4 sided polygon will be drawn.

By default, all polygons are 2-sided. It means that both sides of the polygon are visible at a time. If it is necessary to make visible only 1 side of the polygon, you can set a 2-sided flag to 0.

To increase performance, you can use point indices instead of point coordinates. See the following functions for more details:

Notice
The widget canvas doesn't perform a depth test. So, you will have to implement depth testing by using functions that set the rendering order for lines and polygons.
