LVectorBase::VectorEventProcCallBack

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LVectorBase::VectorEventProcCallBack(pVector, uLevel, pEvent, pUserData)

Processes each event that occurs inside the vector handle.

Parameters

pVECTORHANDLE pVector

Pointer to the vector handle in which the event occurred.

L_UINT uLevel

Level of the event that occurred. For a top-level event, this value is 0. For a second level event this value is 1, etc. For an example, refer to the Comments section below.

pVECTOREVENT pEvent

Pointer to a VECTOREVENT structure that describes the event that occurred in the vector handle.

L_VOID * pUserData

A void pointer that you can use to access a variable or structure containing data that your callback function needs. This gives you a way to receive data indirectly from the function that uses this callback function.

Keep in mind that this is a void pointer, which must be cast to the appropriate data type within your callback function.

Returns

Value Meaning
SUCCESS The function was successful.
< 1 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

To use this function you must derive a class from LVectorBase and override the VectorEventProcCallBack function.

To understand event levels, consider this example:

Assume the clipboard contains a vector handle with 1 layer and 2 objects inside this layer.

Now you execute LVectorBase::CopyFromClipboard, the toolkit may fire these events in the following sequence:

pEvent->uType pEvent->Status uLevel Comment
VECTOR_EVENT_COPYFROMCLIPBOARD VECTOR_EVENT_BEFORE 0 LVectorBase::CopyFromClipboard is about to execute.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDLAYER VECTOR_EVENT_BEFORE 1 LVectorBase::AddLayer is about to execute.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDOBJECT VECTOR_EVENT_BEFORE 2 LVectorBase::AddObject for first object is about to execute.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDOBJECT VECTOR_EVENT_AFTER 2 LVectorBase::AddObject for first object has been completed.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDOBJECT VECTOR_EVENT_BEFORE 2 LVectorBase::AddObject for second object is about to execute.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDOBJECT VECTOR_EVENT_AFTER 2 LVectorBase::AddObject for second object has been completed.
VECTOR_EVENT_ADDLAYER VECTOR_EVENT_AFTER 1 LVectorBase::AddLayer has been completed.
VECTOR_EVENT_COPYFROMCLIPBOARD VECTOR_EVENT_AFTER 0 LVectorBase::CopyFromClipboard has been completed.

Your callback can monitor all these operations and cancels whatever operation you want.

Example

This example defines a new event consisting of a rotate, translate and a scale.
A message is displayed in the Event callback before the event and after the event.
