Documentation

ezxdisp is a simple graphics library for 2D/3D graphical applications. (The official distribution can be found here).

Initialize/Finalize a window

[procedure] (ezx-init SIZE_X SIZE_Y WINDOW_NAME)

This procedure returns a EZX object all other procedures accept.

[procedure] (ezx-quit EZX)

Update the graphics in the window

[procedure] (ezx-redraw EZX)

Erase the graphics in the window/layer

[procedure] (ezx-wipe EZX)
[procedure] (ezx-wipe-layer EZX LAYER)

LAYER should be an exact integer between 0 and 8.

Get the pointer coordinates

[procedure] (ezx-sensebutton EZX)

Returns the current pointer coordinates as three values: BUTTON, X and Y

[procedure] (ezx-pushbutton EZX)

Block until an event is received. Returns three values: BUTTON, X and Y

The BUTTON result is 1, 2 or 3 for the first, second and third mouse button, respectively. The button number is additionally bitwise OR'd with 8 if the shift key is pressed and with 16 if the control key is pressed.

Draw 2D graphics

[procedure] (ezx-line-2d EZX X0 Y0 X1 Y1 COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-circle-2d EZX X0 Y0 R COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-fillcircle-2d EZX X0 Y0 R COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-str-2d EZX X0 Y0 STRING COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-fillrect-2d EZX X0 Y0 X1 Y1 COLOR)

Draw 3D graphics

[procedure] (ezx-set-light-3d EZX EX EY EZ)
[procedure] (ezx-set-view-3d EZX EX EY EZ VX VY VZ M)
[procedure] (ezx-c3d-to-2d EZX SX SY SZ)

Returns two values, DX and DY.

[procedure] (ezx-line-3d EZX X0 Y0 Z0 X1 Y1 Z1 COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-str-3d EZX X0 Y0 Z0 STRING COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-poly-3d EZX POINTS HX HY HZ N COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-circle-3d EZX X0 Y0 Z0 R COLOR)

The POINTS argument should be a SRFI-4 f64vector containing X, Y and Z coordinates.

Miscellaneous functions

[procedure] (ezx-select-layer EZX LAYER)

Focuses on the layer.

[procedure] (ezx-raise-window EZX)

Raises the window.

[procedure] (ezx-window-name EZX STRING)

Sets a name of the window.

[procedure] (ezx-set-background EZX COLOR)

Sets the background color of the window.

Colors

[procedure] (make-ezx-color R G B)

This procedure returns a "color object", which is internally encoded as a f64vector. The red, green and blue components should be between 0 and 1.

Examples

(define ezx (ezx-init 100 100 "Hello, ezxdisp"))
(ezx-set-background ezx (make-ezx-color 1 1 1))
(ezx-fillcircle-2d ezx 50 50 25 (make-ezx-color 1 0 0) 1)
(ezx-redraw ezx)

(let loop ()
  (let-values ([(b _ _) (ezx-pushbutton ezx)])
    (when (zero? b) (loop)) ) )

(ezx-quit ezx)

A more elaborate example is in the egg distribution in a file named 3d_clock.scm, which displays an animated 3D-clock.
