Class GeoRelLayer

All Implemented Interfaces:
EventListener, TableModelListener

public class GeoRelLayer extends Layer<ChoroplethTheme> implements TableModelListener
A GeoRelLayer is a geo-relational attribute store plus thematic information describing how the data should be rendered. As a layer it can be added to a LayerList and then displayed in a MapViewer or a MapReport.
  • Constructor Details

    • GeoRelLayer

      public GeoRelLayer(GeoRelationalStore store, ChoroplethTheme theme, String fieldname) throws Exception
      Set up the layer by joining a source data table, a theme, and a column specification. This will join the data source with the theme definition. The fieldname parameter is an expression that will be evaluated to determine the classification of each feature. The classification value will be used to lookup up the symbol to use from the theme.
      store - the GeoRelational data soure
      theme - the thematic defintion
      fieldname - the attribute field expression used to classify the features

      @Deprecated public GeoRelLayer(GeoRelationalStore store, ChoroplethTheme theme) throws Exception
      This is the legacy constructor. It is the equivalent of
       new GeoRelLayer(store, theme, theme.getFieldName());
      Use the #GeoRelLayer(GeoRelationalStore, ChoroplethTheme, String) consructor instead.
    • GeoRelLayer

      @Deprecated public GeoRelLayer(GeoRelationalStore store, ChoroplethTheme theme, double minScale, double maxScale) throws Exception
      Constructor to create a layer and set some theme properties. The preferred method to do this would be to set the theme properies directly on to the theme object.

      Use the #GeoRelLayer(GeoRelationalStore, ChoroplethTheme, String) consructor instead.

    • setConnected

      public void setConnected(boolean state)
      Description copied from class: Layer
      Connect the layer to the data source by adding a listener. The default value is true (connected).

    • getConnected

      public boolean getConnected()
      Specified by:

    • setDisconnectWhenInvisible

      public void setDisconnectWhenInvisible(boolean state)
      Disconnnect the listener when the layer is not visible. This will increase performance for busy layers such as the route layer that have thousands of updates per second. Unfortunately, it will cause the backing store to forget that updates have occured, so set a flag to repaint the entire layer (perhaps unnecessarily) when the layer regains visibility.

      Caution: This method should only be used before the layer is made visible.

      public int getRepaintWidth()
      Get the width of the damage repaint area that is used during feature update events.
    • setRepaintWidth

      public GeoRelLayer setRepaintWidth(int width)
      This parameter sets the number of pixels of damage that should be repainted around each feature during an update operation. The default value is 0. When specified with a positive number the update operation will clear the backing store near the updated feature, and then draw all features within distance. This will help to repair drawing artifacts caused overlapping symbology. Although this update mechanism is quite fast, it can cause slowdowns to the modeling system when called thousands of times per second.
      width - The number of pixels of area around the update feature that should be erased and redrawn.

    • setFeatureProperties

      public Layer setFeatureProperties(ArrayList<DBFColumnSpec> featureProperties)
      Set a list of properties definitions, potentially useful in printing contexts that know what to do with them. For example, the PDF output in the MapLayoutReport will format these properties as linked object data.
      setFeatureProperties in class Layer<ChoroplethTheme>
      featureProperties - a list of column specifications.
    • paintLayer

      public boolean paintLayer(Extent2D extent, AffineTransform af, double scale)
      Draw the thematic data for this geographic layer on to the backing store.

      In general, the process to follow is to set up a loop to retrieve features from the store, retreive their symbology, and then render. Each time through the loop test to see if the drawing has been interrupted.

      Only the backing store is drawn by this method. The actual drawing on to the screen is handled solely by the refresh and update methods.

      Specified by:
      paintLayer in class Layer<ChoroplethTheme>
      extent - The geographic extent to be drawn.
      af - The affine transform needed to map from geographic to screen coordinates.
      scale - the page to screen scale denominator (needed for scale thresholding).
