Arguments

playState

a playState object representing the plot, window and device.

prompt

text to display in the prompt.

scales

the default allows the user to hold Shift while dragging, to constrain the selection to x or y scales. Otherwise this should be one or more of "x" and "y", specifying which axes to select along.

Details

playPointInput is similar to locator, but returns native coordinates in whichever plot space was clicked on. Device coordinates and normalised device coordinates are also available.

playRectInput and playLineInput allow the user to interactively draw a rectangle or line.

Value

All these functions return NULL if the user cancelled (e.g. by right-clicking). Otherwise a list with:

space

character, specifies the plot space in which the user clicked or dragged. See the space argument to playDo.

coords

native coordinates of the point or shape in space. A list with numeric vectors x and y. For a rectangle or line, these are length 2 where the first element refers to the start of the drag motion. For a point these are length 1. If space is "page", this is NULL.

dc

device coordinates of the point or shape (pixels).

ndc

normalised device coordinates of the point or shape.

is.click

logical, whether it was a click (so probably should not be treated as a rectangle or line). This is not returned by playPointInput.

modifiers

a flag representing which modifier keys were pressed during the click (or at the end of a drag). E.g. to test for Shift key: if (foo$modifiers & GdkModifierType["shift-mask"]). See enums-and-flags.
