Sphere Color Control using Radio Buttons#

This example shows how to use the UI API. We will demonstrate how to create a Sphere and control its color using radio buttons.

First, some imports.

import numpy as np

from fury import actor, ui, utils, window
from fury.data import fetch_viz_icons

First we need to fetch some icons that are included in FURY.

fetch_viz_icons()
Data size is approximately 12KB
Dataset is already in place. If you want to fetch it again please first remove the folder /Users/skoudoro/.fury/icons

({'icomoon.tar.gz': ('https://digital.lib.washington.edu/researchworks/bitstream/handle/1773/38478/icomoon.tar.gz', 'BC1FEEA6F58BA3601D6A0B029EB8DFC5F352E21F2A16BA41099A96AA3F5A4735')}, '/Users/skoudoro/.fury/icons')

Sphere and Radio Buttons#

Add a Sphere to the scene.

sphere = actor.sphere(
    centers=np.array([[50, 0, 0]]),
    colors=np.array([[0, 0, 1]]),
    radii=11.0,
    theta=360,
    phi=360,
)

# Creating a dict of possible options and mapping it with their values.
options = {'Blue': (0, 0, 255), 'Red': (255, 0, 0), 'Green': (0, 255, 0)}

color_toggler = ui.RadioButton(
    list(options),
    checked_labels=['Blue'],
    padding=1,
    font_size=16,
    font_family='Arial',
    position=(200, 200),
)


# A callback which will set the values for the box
def toggle_color(radio):
    vcolors = utils.colors_from_actor(sphere)
    color = options[radio.checked_labels[0]]
    vcolors[:] = np.array(color)
    utils.update_actor(sphere)


color_toggler.on_change = toggle_color

Show Manager#

Now that all the elements have been initialised, we add them to the show manager.

current_size = (800, 800)
show_manager = window.ShowManager(size=current_size, title='FURY Sphere Example')

show_manager.scene.add(sphere)
show_manager.scene.add(color_toggler)

Set camera for better visualization
