Polyface gradient coloring by elevation


In version 6019 a new property GradientColors was added in vdPolyFace object.

Description: Get/Set an array of elevations with their colors used for gradient rendering.

Example in C#:


//If the first entity in the Model entities is a vdPolyface object
//then select gradient colors for 5 diferent levels between minimum and maximum elevation of the entity bounding box
vdPolyface pf = doc.Model.Entities[0] as vdPolyface;
if(pf != null){
                ElevatedGradientColors elevColors = new ElevatedGradientColors();
                Box bound = pf.BoundingBox;
                int ncolors = 5;
                for (int i = 0; i < ncolors; i++)
                    elevColors.SetAt((i * (bound.ZMax - bound.ZMin) / ncolors)+bound.ZMin, doc.Palette[i].SystemColor);
                pf.GradientColors = elevColors;

//GradientColors are supported only with  vdRender.Mode.Shade , vdRender.Mode.ShadeOn and vdRender.Mode.Render

doc.RenderMode = vdRender.Mode.Shade;
