A simple graphics library for X11.
n-sibata and Morihiko Tamai, packaged for CHICKEN by felix winkelmann.
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-point-2d EZX X Y COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-line-2d EZX X0 Y0 X1 Y1 COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-lines-2d EZX POINTS COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-poly-2d EZX POINTS COLOR)
The POINTS argument should be an SRFI-4 s32vector of the form [X1 Y1 ... Xn Yn] where X and Y are the coordinates of each point.[procedure] (ezx-rect-2d EZX X0 Y0 X1 Y1 COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-fillrect-2d EZX X0 Y0 X1 Y1 COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-circle-2d EZX X0 Y0 R COLOR WIDTH)
[procedure] (ezx-fillcircle-2d EZX X0 Y0 R COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-str-2d EZX X0 Y0 STRING 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)
[procedure] (ezx-poly-3d EZX POINTS HX HY HZ COLOR)
[procedure] (ezx-circle-3d EZX X0 Y0 Z0 R COLOR)
The POINTS argument should be a SRFI-4 f64vector containing the X, Y and Z coordinates of each point.
Event handling[procedure] (ezx-next-event EZX)
Removes the next event from the event queue and returns the event-specific information. If there is no event data in the event queue, this function blocks until the next event occurs. The procedure returns 5 values: the type of the event, the X- and Y-coordinates of the mouse pointer at the time of the event, the button- or keyboard-state mask and the button- or key-code of the event.
The following variables contain the event-types that may occur:
- ezx:BUTTON-PRESS or ezx:BUTTON-RELEASE
- ezx:KEY-PRESS or ezx:KEY-RELEASE
These button-codes are defined:
State mask values that may be returned:
For keyboard events, some special keys will return a platform independent keycode:
The result values will be undefined for events for which they are not used. This table summarizes what results are valid:
|ezx:BUTTON-PRESS ezx:BUTTON-RELEASE||x, y, state, k/b|
|ezx:KEY-PRESS ezx:KEY-RELEASE||x, y, state, k/b|
|ezx:MOTION-NOTIFY||x, y, state|
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.
(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)) (ezx-redraw ezx) (let loop () (let-values (((b _ _) (ezx-pushbutton ezx))) (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.
- 2.9 simplified the API of ezx-lines-2d, ezx-poly-2d, ezx-poly-3d [thanks to Wim Lewis]
- 2.5 fixed use of removed pointer type
- 2.4 added ezx-resize
- 2.3 Added win32 support; ezx-next-event always returns 5 values
- 2.1 Fixed srfi-4 use issue [reported by Christian Kellermann]
- 2.0 Ported to Chicken 4; updated to upstream version 0.1.4
- 1.3 Added ezx-event-pending
- 1.2 Adapted to externalized easyffi extension
- 1.1 ezx-set-background wasn't documented
- 1.0 Initial release
