Description

Grid is the base class for plotting a layout of uniformly spaced points and lines.

The Grid component stores dimensional data of the layout of the grid and provides helper functions to retrieve information about the grid, such as the conversion between the cell location and local space location of items within the grid.

The layout of the Grid component is in the XY plane with the origin of the grid always beginning at (0, 0) and the X and Y coordinates of the grid only as positive values.

Implements the interface GridLayout.

Properties

cellGapThe size of the gap between each cell in the Grid.
cellLayoutThe layout of the cells in the Grid.
cellSizeThe size of each cell in the Grid.
cellSwizzleThe cell swizzle for the Grid.

Public Methods

GetCellCenterLocalGet the logical center coordinate of a grid cell in local space.
GetCellCenterWorldGet the logical center coordinate of a grid cell in world space.

Static Methods

InverseSwizzleDoes the inverse swizzle of the given position for given swizzle order.
SwizzleSwizzles the given position with the given swizzle order.

Operators

boolDoes the object exist?
operator !=Compares if two objects refer to a different object.
operator ==Compares two object references to see if they refer to the same object.
