class TEllipse: public TObject, public TAttLine, public TAttFill

TEllipse : to draw ellipses

The ellipse can be truncated and rotated. It is defined by its center (x1,y1) and two radius r1 and r2. A minimum and maximum angle may be specified (phimin, phimax). The ellipse may be rotated with an angle theta. All these angles are in degrees. The attributes of the outline line are given via TAttLine. The attributes of the fill area are given via TAttFill. The picture below illustrates different types of ellipses.

When an ellipse sector only is drawn, the lines connecting the center of the ellipse to the edges are drawn by default. One can specify the drawing option "only" to not draw these lines or alternatively call the function SetNoEdges(). To remove completely the ellipse outline it is enough to specify 0 as line style.

Function documentation

 Ellipse default constructor.
TEllipse(Double_t x1, Double_t y1, Double_t r1, Double_t r2 = 0, Double_t phimin = 0, Double_t phimax = 360, Double_t theta = 0)
 Ellipse normal constructor.
 Ellipse default destructor.
TEllipse(const TEllipse& ellipse)
 Copy constructor.
void Copy(TObject& ellipse) const
 Copy this ellipse to ellipse.
Int_t DistancetoPrimitive(Int_t px, Int_t py)
 Compute distance from point px,py to an ellipse.

 Compute the closest distance of approach from point px,py to this
 ellipse. The distance is computed in pixels units.

 In case of a filled ellipse the distance returned is 0 if the point
 (px,py) is inside the ellipse, and is huge if the point is outside.
void Draw(Option_t* option = "")

 Draw this ellipse with new coordinates.
void ExecuteEvent(Int_t event, Int_t px, Int_t py)
 Execute action corresponding to one event.

  This member function is called when a line is clicked with the locator

  If Left button clicked on one of the line end points, this point
     follows the cursor until button is released.

  if Middle button clicked, the line is moved parallel to itself
     until the button is released.

  NOTE that support for log scale is not implemented
