CreatePolygonRegion


Creates a polygonal region corresponding to a given closed path.

Syntax

void avl::CreatePolygonRegion
(
	const avl::Path& inPolygon,
	atl::Optional<const avl::CoordinateSystem2D&> inPolygonAlignment,
	int inFrameWidth,
	int inFrameHeight,
	avl::Region& outRegion,
	atl::Optional<avl::Path&> outAlignedPolygon = atl::NIL
)

Parameters

Name Type Range Default Description
inPolygon const Path&
inPolygonAlignment Optional<const CoordinateSystem2D&> NIL Adjusts the polygon to the position of the inspected object
inFrameWidth int 0 - Width of the created region's frame
inFrameHeight int 0 - Height of the created region's frame
outRegion Region& Output region
outAlignedPolygon Optional<Path&> NIL The input polygon transformed to the absolute coordinate system

Description

The operation creates a region containing pixels lying inside the shape described by inPolygon.

The inFrameWidth and inFrameHeight parameters most often should be set equal to the dimensions of the image this region will be used with. If the input polygon exceeds these dimensions, the output region will be cropped.

Hints

  • Remember to set inFrameWidth and inFrameHeight inputs to specify the region frame.

Examples

Remarks

  • inPolygon has to be a closed path, otherwise an error with appropriate description occurs.

Errors

Error type Description
DomainError Open path on input in CreatePolygonRegion.
DomainError Output region too big in CreatePolygonRegion.
