Synopsis

The VisualizationDemo signal processing module demonstrates how to send visualizations with arbitrary pixel content to the operator module. Two rendering methods are provided: Native Qt QPainter-based rendering, and BCI2000's own GraphDisplay based rendering.

Inheritance

The VisualizationDemoFilter signal processing filter derives from GenericFilter.

Function

The VisualizationDemoFilter computes pairwise determination coefficients (squared correlation, r^2 values) between its input channels. Determination coefficients are visualized in form of pie charts, and pie charts are sent to the operator module as bitmap visualization data.

Implementation

Each visualization window is implemented as a VisualizationObject that contains a BitmapVisualization object, a WorkerThread object, and a Computation object. Whenever a new block of data arrives, computation is done for the individual window's pair of channels in the main thread. Then, visualization bitmap data are produced and sent to the operator module inside the worker thread, to avoid blocking the main thread. Inside the worker thread, the BitmapVisualization's SendDifferenceFrame() function is called to update the visualization display in the operator module.

Parameters

VisImageWidth

Native image width in pixels.

VisImageHeight

Native image height in pixels.

VisImageBackground

The images' background color, in hexadecimal notation.

VisImageDecimation

A positive integer that indicates how often images are refreshed. 1 means every refresh on every signal packet.

VisMaxWindows

The maximum number of visualization windows created, or 0 for any number of windows.
