ClassImp(TExec)

//______________________________________________________________________________
//
//   TExec is a utility class that can be used to execute a CINT command
//   when some event happens in a pad.
//   The command in turn can invoke a CINT macro to paint graphics objects
//   at positions depending on the histogram or graph contents.
//
// case 1
// ======
// The TExec object is in the list of pad primitives (after exec.Draw()).
// When the pad is drawn, the TExec::Paint function is called. This function
// will execute the specified command.
// The following example uses the services of the class Aclock created
// in $ROOTSYS/test/Aclock.cxx.
// This examples uses a TTimer to redraw a pad at regular intervals (clock).
// When the clock is updated, a string with the current date&time is drawn.
//{
//   gSystem->Load("$ROOTSYS/test/Aclock");
//   Aclock ck(400);
//   gPad->SetFillColor(5);
//   TDatime dt;
//   TText t(.5,.3,"t");
//   t.SetTextAlign(22);
//   t.SetTextSize(.07);
//   t.SetTextColor(4);
//   t.Draw();
//   TExec ex("ex","dt.Set();t.SetTitle(dt.AsString())");
//   ex.Draw();
//}
//
// case 2
// ======
// The TExec object may be added to the list of functions of a TH1 or TGraph
// object via hist->GetListOfFunctions()->Add(exec).
// When the histogram (or graph) is drawn, the TExec will be executed.
// If the histogram is made persistent on a file, the TExec object
// is also saved with the histogram. When redrawing the histogram in a
// new session, the TExec will be executed.
// Example:
//     Assume an histogram TH1F *h already filled.
//     TExec *ex1 = new TExec("ex1","DoSomething()");
//     TExec *ex2 = new TExec("ex2",".x macro.C");
//     h->GetListOfFunctions()->Add(ex1);
//     h->GetListOfFunctions()->Add(ex2);
//     h->Draw();
//  When the Paint function for the histogram will be called, the "DoSomething"
//  function will be called (interpreted or compiled) and also the macro.C.
//
// case 3
// ======
// A TExec object is automatically generated when invoking TPad::AddExec.
// Each pad contains a TList of TExecs (0, 1 or more). When a mouse event
// (motion, click, etc) happens, the pad object executes ssequentially
// this list of TExecs. In the code (interpreted or compiled) executed
// by the TExec referenced command, one can call the pad service functions
// such as TPad::GetEvent, TPad::GetEventX, TPad::GetEventY to find
// which type of event and the X,Y position of the mouse.
// By default, the list of TExecs is executed. This can be disabled
// via the canvas menu "Option".
// See $ROOTSYS/tutorials/hist/exec2.C for an example.
//    Root > TFile f("hsimple.root");
//    Root > hpxpy.Draw();
//    Root > c1.AddExec("ex2",".x exec2.C");
//    When moving the mouse in the canvas, a second canvas shows the
//    projection along X of the bin corresponding to the Y position
//    of the mouse. The resulting histogram is fitted with a gaussian.
//    A "dynamic" line shows the current bin position in Y.
//    This more elaborated example can be used as a starting point
//    to develop more powerful interactive applications exploiting CINT
//    as a development engine.
//
// The 3 options above can be combined.
