SLADrawOverlay_t Struct Reference

Description

Draw user specified overlay graphics on the screen.

typedef struct {
u8 cameraIndex;
u8 objId;
u8 action;
u8 propertyFlags;
u8 type;
u16 a;

NOTE: This replaces SLADrawObject_t

NOTE: For 3000 Picture in Picture, graphic objects are not drawn to the PIP window.
NOTE: To get all the object ids of current drawn objects use SLAGetParameters_t(DrawObject) with an object id of 0. To get the current object information use SLAGetParameters_t(DrawOverlay).
NOTE: Applied to the Command Camera or the camera index specified.
See Draw Order for additional drawing details.

H/V Scaling

Horizontal/Vertical scale shifted left 5 (e.g. 32 means no scaling (= 100%). 0 is also interpreted as no scaling). Ignored by 1500/3000 for font ID 5 (Arial) .. 10 (Calibri Bold).
Using a scale other than 100% may result in blurred/smeared text drawing.

Spacing

Pixels between a character to the next character. If 0, then uses the font's default spacing. For font ID 0 .. 10, this specifies the width of drawn fonts. For UserFont0..UserFont15, this specifies the extra space (padding) between fonts. Not used for font ID 5 .. 10 on 1500/3000.

Line Thickness (ignored on 1500/3000) (New 3.4)

Thickness of line strokes in pixels. 0 is same as 1.

Text Extended Object Type

Parameter Bits Description
c 0-7 Horizontal scaling is value of (Bits 0-7)/32, 0 = no scaling, not used for font ID 5..10 on 1500/3000
c 8-15 Vertical scaling is value of (Bits 8-15)/32, 0 = no scaling, not used for font ID 5..10 on 1500/3000
d 0-4 Font ID 0 = Courier, 1 = Courier bold, 5 = Arial, 6 = Arial Bold, 7 = Verdana, 8 = Verdana Bold, 9 = Calibri, 10 = Calibri Bold
(4000 only) 16..31 = UserFont0..UserFont15 – SightLine provides default user fonts but any of them can be replaced by SLAUserFont_t. New 3.4
d 5 Enable fixed width – applicable to fonts with ID 5 .. 10, draw fonts with a predefined fixed width.
d 6 Enable outline effect – applicable when background color set to transparent
d 7 Enable shadow effect – applicable when background color set to transparent
d 8-15 Pixels between a font to the next font; 0 = font default spacing
e 0-15 Ignored, must be 0

Color To Number Mapping

Value Color Value Color
0 White 8 Light Green
1 Black 9 Green
2 Light Gray 10 Dark Green
3 Gray 11 Red
4 Dark Gray 12 Orange
5 Light Blue 13 Yellow
6 Blue 14 Transparent
7 Dark Blue 15 Automatic

Automatic Color on 4000

Using automatic-color is not recommended on 4000 and future systems. It may be deprecated in the future on 4000. Due to the implementation of graphics drawing, using automatic-color may slow down processing speed.
Automatic color on 1500/3000 will continue to work.
NOTE: If automatic color is specified for a User Font (UserFont0 .. UserFont15), then it is ignored and treated as Transparent.

17backgroundColorObject Color
Bits Description
0-3 Background color: for vertical and horizontal lines, the background color is drawn as a shadow; use transparent (14) to disable drawing of shadow
4-7 Foreground color: for filled objects "Automatic" will result in object being filled with a partially transparent middle gray value which can be used as a background for drawing text to ensure the text is always visible. For non filled objects it will be either white or black depending on the scene content.
Note: See action byte for setting transparency level for filled objects.
Note: Transparent is not supported for text foreground
18 text.len string length
19-...text.str Text and KLV objects only: text string (64 characters max)
For KLV objects use "%s" for time, mission ID, latitude, and longitudes and "%f" for all others.
Example "Time: %s"
Example "Slant Range: %05.0f (ft)"
Example "HFOV: %2.1f (deg)"
Example "Sensor Position: %s"

Character Encoding: Depending on the font type, different character encodings are used:
- Courier(default), Courier bold: ASCII (7bit, 0x20..0x7F)
- Arial..Calibri Bold: ISO 8859-1 (8bit, 0x20..0xff, ASCII + additional characters such as European characters)
- UserFont0..UserFont15: UTF-8
