class TPaletteAxis: public TPave

The palette painting class

A TPaletteAxis object is used to display the color palette when drawing 2-d histograms.

The TPaletteAxis is automatically created drawn when drawing a 2-D histogram when the option "Z" is specified.

A TPaletteAxis object is added to the histogram list of functions and can be retrieved doing:

   TPaletteAxis *palette = (TPaletteAxis*)h->GetListOfFunctions()->FindObject("palette");
then the pointer palette can be used to change the pallette attributes.

Because the palette is created at painting time only, one must issue a:

before retrieving the palette pointer in order to create the palette. The following macro gives an example.
output of MACRO_TPaletteAxis_1_c1
   TCanvas *c1 = new TCanvas("c1","c1",600,400);
   TH2F *h2 = new TH2F("h2","Example of a resized palette ",40,-4,4,40,-20,20);
   Float_t px, py;
   for (Int_t i = 0; i < 25000; i++) {
   TPaletteAxis *palette = (TPaletteAxis*)h2->GetListOfFunctions()->FindObject("palette");
   return c1;
TPaletteAxis inherits from TBox and TPave. The methods
allowing to specify the palette position are inherited from these two classes.

The palette can be interactively moved and resized. The context menu can be used to set the axis attributes.

It is possible to select a range on the axis to set the min/max in z

Function documentation

 Palette default constructor.
TPaletteAxis(Double_t x1, Double_t y1, Double_t x2, Double_t y2, TH1* h)
 Palette normal constructor.
 Palette destructor.
TPaletteAxis(const TPaletteAxis& palette)
 Palette copy constructor.
void Copy(TObject& palette) const
 Copy a palette to a palette.
Int_t DistancetoPrimitive(Int_t px, Int_t py)
 Check if mouse on the axis region.
void ExecuteEvent(Int_t event, Int_t px, Int_t py)
 Check if mouse on the axis region.
Int_t GetBinColor(Int_t i, Int_t j)
 Returns the color index of the bin (i,j).

 This function should be used after an histogram has been plotted with the
 option COL or COLZ like in the following example:

   TPaletteAxis *palette =
   Int_t ci = palette->GetBinColor(20,15);

 Then it is possible to retrieve the RGB components in the following way:

   TColor *c = gROOT->GetColor(ci);
   float x,y,z;
char * GetObjectInfo(Int_t px, Int_t py) const
 Displays the z value corresponding to cursor position py.
Int_t GetValueColor(Double_t zc)
 Returns the color index of the given z value

 This function should be used after an histogram has been plotted with the
 option COL or COLZ like in the following example:

   TPaletteAxis *palette =
   Int_t ci = palette->GetValueColor(30.);

 Then it is possible to retrieve the RGB components in the following way:

   TColor *c = gROOT->GetColor(ci);
   float x,y,z;
void Paint(Option_t* option = "")
 Paint the palette.
void SavePrimitive(ostream& out, Option_t* option = "")
 Save primitive as a C++ statement(s) on output stream out.
void UnZoom()
 Unzoom the palette
TGaxis * GetAxis()
{return &fAxis;}
