Colorbar (control panel)

Colour Bar control during visualisation in AnThermThe control panel Colorbar defines transformation settings of the colour table used for false colour assignments in all colorized  evaluations (the transformation from function value to a colour). The display of the colour scale can be adjusted here also.

The colour table "affects" the active function (temperature, heat flux, surface humidity, etc.) - selected within the General control panel.

Remark: By changing the setting Colorize of each respective evaluation the function of colorizing by a colour table can be turned off selectively - objects are then homogenously coloured by dark or bright colour instead of being colorized by value.

Active, OpaqueDecide about the visibility and transparency of the colour scale and its labels.

Remark: Even if the colour scale itself is inactive (not visible) chosen parameters are applied to evaluations!!

MoveableIf turned off all mouse events will be directed to the 3D evaluation - the colour bar cannot be sized nor moved anymore.
Fixed rangeIf turned on the value range for adjusting the colour bar can be set arbitrarily, independent of the current value range of the evaluated function.
Range-Min/MaxThe values of Maximum and Minimum, shown at the top and bottom of the panel, display the current extent of selected evaluation function.
When "Fixed range" is chosen both values can be set arbitrarily, independent of the current value range of the evaluated function.
Min/MaxThe mapping interval of the colour bar displayed can be reduced by the input in the respective fields.

The input can be performed either by the entry of numeric values into the respective input field or by moving the sliders between the extent values. This allows better emphasizing of selective value interval.

Clamp rangeAllows for clamping of evaluation areas outside of selected value interval.

Remark: Current implementation provides very simple but extremely fast clamping function.

Colour tablePreset with the standard value "(Default)" the colour table of red through green to blue is used.

The application provides many various colour tables which can be selected here.

Labelling of the colour bar can be adjusted within the control panel Labels.

The position at which the colour bar is displayed can be arbitrarily changed within the 3D view by moving and sizing it with the mouse.

Remark: Even if the colour scale itself is inactive (not visible) chosen colorizing parameters are applied to evaluations!

Remark: Extreme values of temperatures include space temperatures also.

Hint: Fix the Range of the Color Bar to receive comparable results by decoupling it from the actually evaluated domain. This function specific setting takes care for keeping the range constant regardless of changes to boundary conditions, evaluation time point, animation or for different projects.

Position and size of the colour bar display

The position at which the colour bar is displayed can be arbitrarily changed within the 3D view by moving and sizing it with the mouse if the "Moveable" setting is turned on.

You interactively manipulate the position, size, and orientation of a colour bar. It reacts to to left mouse events and mouse movement. The shape of the cursor will change based on its location. If the cursor is over an edge of the colour bar the cursor shape will change to a resize edge shape.
If the position of a colour bar is moved to be close to the centre of one of the four edges of the 3D view, then the colour bar will change its orientation to align with that edge. This orientation is sticky in that it will stay at that orientation until the position is moved close to the centre of another edge.

Actual position of the colour bar is saved automatically within application settings file and restored the next time the Results3D window is opened.

Remark: If the case the colour bar has been accidentally moved outside of the visible area of the window, it can not be picked with the mouse pointer anymore for any further movement. To restore the position to some position where it can be picked and moved again you must close the 3D window and reopen it - the colour bar will be automatically restored at some visible position nearby the image edge.
 

Remark: When Results3D is showing a periodic evaluation at some evaluation time point, the title of the colour bar will display that value (lacking other annotations the title of the colour bar has been chosen for now as appropriate). <Function name><Unit> (<Time Point>)
For vertically displayed colour bar the time information will be placed onto the second line of the title.

TRANSIENT-option: Solving and evaluating time dependant dynamic, periodic problems when heat capacity effects are concerned is only possible with an active TRANSIENT-Option of the program. TRANSIENT Option in AnTherm
