PTColorPt

@interface PTColorPt : NSObject

ColorPt is an array of colorants (or tint values) representing a color point in an associated color space.

  • Constructor

    Note

    All colorants should be in the range [0..1], so colors in the range [0..255] should be divided by 255.0 first.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (instancetype)initWithX:(double)x y:(double)y z:(double)z w:(double)w;

    Swift

    init!(x: Double, y: Double, z: Double, w: Double)

    Parameters

    x

    initialized value of first color value (eg. red for rgb colorspace);

    y

    initialized value of second color value (eg. green for rgb colorspace);

    z

    initialized value of third color value (eg. blue for rgb colorspace);

    w

    initialized value of fourth color value (eg. when using CMYK);

  • Undocumented

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (BOOL)isEqualTo: (PTColorPt*)co;

    Swift

    func isEqual(to co: PTColorPt!) -> Bool
  • A utility method to set the first 4 tint values. For example, color.Set(red, green, blue) will initialize the ColorPt to given tint values.

    Note

    color.Set(gray) is equivalent to Set(0, gray);

    Note

    All colorants should be in the range [0..1], so colors in the range [0..255] should be divided by 255.0 first.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)Set:(double)x y:(double)y z:(double)z w:(double)w;

    Swift

    func set(_ x: Double, y: Double, z: Double, w: Double)

    Parameters

    x

    initialized value of first color value (eg. red for rgb colorspace);

    y

    initialized value of second color value (eg. green for rgb colorspace);

    z

    initialized value of third color value (eg. blue for rgb colorspace);

    w

    initialized value of fourth color value (eg. when using CMYK);

  • Sets a tint value at a given colorant index.

    For example, the following snippet will initialize the color point to [red, green, blue]:

     color.SetColorantNum(3);
     color.Set(0, red);
     color.Set(1, green);
     color.Set(2, blue);
    

    The above code snippet is equivalent to the following line: color.Set(red, green, blue)

    Note

    If a color point has more than 4 colorants, SetColorantNum(num_colorants) must be called before getting or setting tint values.

    Note

    All colorants should be in the range [0..1], so colors in the range [0..255] should be divided by 255.0 first.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)SetTintWithIndex:(int)colorant_index
              colorant_value:(double)colorant_value;

    Swift

    func setTintWith(_ colorant_index: Int32, colorant_value: Double)

    Parameters

    colorant_index

    the color index. For example, for a color point associated with a Gray color space the only allowed value for index is 0. For a color point associated with a CMYK color space, the color_index can range from 0 (cyan) to 4 (black).

    colorant_value

    The new tint value.

  • The number of colorants depends on the associated color space. To find how many colorant are associated with a given color space use color_space.GetComponentNum().

    For example, if you have a color point in the RGB color space you can extract its colorants as follows:

     UInt8 rgb[3] = ;;
    

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (double)Get:(int)colorant_index;

    Swift

    func get(_ colorant_index: Int32) -> Double

    Parameters

    colorant_index

    number representing the index of the color space to get the tint from

    Return Value

    the tint value at a given colorant index.

  • If a color point has more than 4 colorants, SetColorantNum(num_colorants) must be called before getting or setting tint values. The number of colorants depends on the associated color space. To find how many colorant are associated with a given color space use color_space.GetComponentNum().

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (void)SetColorantNum:(int)num;

    Swift

    func setColorantNum(_ num: Int32)
  • Returns the UIColor value for this PTColorPt with the specified color component count;

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nullable UIColor *)UIColorValueWithComponentCount:(int)componentCount;

    Swift

    func uiColorValue(withComponentCount componentCount: Int32) -> UIColor?

    Parameters

    componentCount

    The number of color components in this PTColorPt

    Return Value

    the UIColor value for this PTColorPt, or nil if the color could not be converted

  • Creates a new PTColorPt instance from the given UIColor.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    + (nullable instancetype)colorFromUIColor:(nonnull UIColor *)uiColor
                               componentCount:(nonnull int *)componentCount;

    Swift

    class func color(from uiColor: UIColor, componentCount: UnsafeMutablePointer<Int32>) -> Self?

    Parameters

    uiColor

    The UIColor from which to create a PTColorPt representation

    componentCount

    On output, this parameter contains the number of color components in the returned PTColorPt. On error, this parameter is invalid.

    Return Value

    a new PTColorPt instance from the given UIColor. The componentCount parameter contains the number of color components in the returned PTColorPt. If an error occurred during the conversion or the UIColor could not be represented as a PTColorPt, then the returned value is nil and the componentCount parameter is invalid.
