WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemHorizontalLineAdd method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Adds a new horizontal line that will be displayed over the waveform's graphics.

 

On the screenshot below you can see a set of horizontal lines displayed over the waveform, each with its own set of properties, positions and buddy text:

 

 

This line can be manually moved on the screen in one of the following ways:

horizontally through code using the WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemHorzPositionSet method
vertically through code using the WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemVertPositionSet method or through the WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemHorizontalLineParamsSet method.
horizontally and vertically through the mouse, causing a sequence of WaveAnalyzerHorzLineMoveBegin, WaveAnalyzerHorzLineMoving and WaveAnalyzerHorzLineMoveEnd events to be generated.

 

During playback of the loaded sound, the WaveAnalyzerHorzLineReached event is generated when playback position reaches the start position of the horizontal line and the WaveAnalyzerHorzLineLeaved event is generated when playback position leaves the end position of the horizontal line.

 

This method fails if no sound is currently loaded into the editor.

The horizontal line is automatically destroyed, as all of the other existing graphic items, when the loaded sound is discarded from memory through the CloseSound method.

 

A horizontal line can be removed through the WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemRemove method and hidden or shown through the WaveformAnalyzer.GraphicItemShow method.
