Manipulator OnMouseDown event is not firing

Mike1955e 3 years ago in Defect? 0

I recently downloaded the latest code for the toolkit. I then tried out all of the demos and found that the manipulator demo does not work. All of the manipulators remain stationary. I placed a breakpoint at the OnMouseDown event and it was never reached. Can someone explain what I'm missing?

FEX: An example of some capabilities of Helix!

everytimer 3 years ago in Information • updated by Wim Huyghe 3 years ago 8
Hello dear Helix mates!
I always loved Helix examples library: many examples and every one with something particularly interesting.
Last few months I've been developing a small but fairly complex application that is based on Helix Toolkit (WPF). If you are developing using this library you might be interested in seeing some of its features!





I have written a small article covering some highlights for Helix Toolkit users:

  • Custom design Orientation Cube
  • More ScreenSpaceVisual3D
  • Rotation around screen perpendicular axis
  • Improving performance by hiding mesh visuals
  • Several layers to enable hover visuals, selection and more
  • Transparency and sorting
  • Hit detection even not directly over the Visual

you can read it here:

www.f-e-x.com/helix.html

PD. FEX is mainly for engineers who work with Finite Element Method models (in this case Nastran). I've attached an example for all of you in order to be able to experiment and play a little bit.

It would be awesome to hear back from you of what do you think of this!

Cheers

Selidbe - saveti, preselite se što lakše

Marko Nikolic 2 years ago in Information • updated by Keystone Consulting Group 6 days ago 4

Put do preseljenja u novi dom prati dosta obaveza, organizacije, rada pa cesto kod vecine ljudi I dosta stresa I napora. Ako se svi potrebni radovi u novom stanu ili kuci zavrse na vreme od useljenja mozete napraviti cak I zabavnu akciju u kojoj ce naravno ucestvovati cela porodica.

Vratimo se na prvobitno stanje. Jos uvek ste u svom trenutnom zivotnom prostoru I predstoji Vam selidba. Najvise bi Vam odgovarao carobni stapic kojim biste se jednim potezom prebacili na novu destinaciju ali… Naoruzajte se voljom za rad I krenite I to prvo od onih stvari I predmeta koji Vam u ovom trenutku nisu potrebni. Kutija po kutija I Vi se polako oprastate od Vase dnevne, spavace sobe I ostalih starih prostorija za koje Vas veze gomila uspomena. Ako svaki spakovani paket, kutiju ili kesu obelezite odnosno napisete sta ste unutra spakovali to ce Vam znatno olaksati raspakivanje.

Nakon toga morate napraviti precizan plan o transportu svih pripremljenih paketa kao i namestaja, tehnike I sl. U eri kompjutera I interneta to je veoma jednostavno, jednim klikom po Vasoj tastaturi pronadjite ekipu koja ce selidbu obaviti u najkracem roku.

Ako ste sve pripremili, radnici firme selidbe beograd koja se na profesionalan nacin bavi svim vrstama selidbi moze biti ispred Vasih vrata. Nakon iznosenja I utovara, kamion sa Vasim stvarima moze da krene. Vama nista drugo ne preostaje vec da svoj dosadasnji dom zakljucate I krenete, I naravno sa sobom ponesete lepe uspomene iz njega.

Niste ni trepnuli a Vi ste vec u svom novom domu I vreme je za raspakovanje. Kako ne bi doslo do nereda I zbrke sada kada ste medju gomilom kutija I paketa najbolje je drzati se sistema koji ste pratili kao I kada ste se pakovali. Ponovo kutija po kutija, bez zurbe I napetosti I nove prostorije ce polako bivati opremljene. Posto niste u mogucnosti odmah da spremate obroke I kuhinju za tako kratko vreme osposobite za koriscenje, porucite nesto od hrane, spakujte decu u krevet I u miru provedite ostatak veceri.

AddExtrudedGeometry problem

MCv 7 months ago in Question 0

Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to create a simple 3d object, extruded one out of 4 pairs of 2D coordinates. But what I'm getting - is a 2d object. I can't understand: it's a my mistake or something else is wrong?


Here is my xaml code:

<Grid>
        <helix:HelixViewport3D x:Name="view1" Background="LightBlue" IsHeadLightEnabled="True" >

            <helix:MeshGeometryVisual3D  MeshGeometry="{Binding GlassGeometry}" Fill="White"/>
        </helix:HelixViewport3D>
    </Grid>


And code behind method:

  public MeshGeometry3D GlassGeometry
        {
            get
            {
                var builder = new MeshBuilder(true, true);                 List<Point> pints2D = new List<Point>()
                {
                    new Point(-1, -1),
                    new Point(0, -1),
                    new Point(1, 1),
                    new Point(-1, 1)
                };
                Point3D sp = new Point3D(0, 0, 0);
                Point3D ep = new Point3D(0, 0, 1);

               builder.AddExtrudedGeometry(pints2D, new Vector3D(1,0, 0), sp, ep);

                return builder.ToMesh(true);
            }

What I'm expecting to see is just a cube(in this case). But in the future I would like to get something like this:



But now my result looks like:

Or is it a possibility to create a 3d Object in code using 8 pairs of 3D coordinates?

Thank you in advance.

MP3 MP3 stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer recorded in a compressed audio format and this format is given to the voices.

MP4 despite the similarity in each name, is not a continuation of MP3s. MP3 and MP4 formats are quite different from each other. MP3, MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 stands for.

Hi everyone,

Just a quick question, does Helix Toolkit work on UWP? I've tried to build it, but lots of errors, so before I start looking into it further, is it even supposed to work?


Helix Toolkit has been amazing on WPF, just want to know if I can use on a UWP app?


Thanks

What is 192.168.0.1

Dianna Gron 2 years ago in Information • updated by anonymous 10 months ago 1

A default IP used by d link, netgear and other popular router manufacturers to find themselves over the network is 192.168.0.1 IP. Users can enter this address into the address bar of their favorite web browser on their computer to get access to the router settings page. There they can change the default password of the router, security settings and Wi-Fi settings of their network. Even they can monitor the connection of their router to the network, reset the connection settings and router or change the firewall settings on the settings webpage. People do not need an active internet connection to access their router settings page. The only thing they need to do is typing the IP address used by their router for administration. The address could vary depending on the router manufacturer.


How can people find the router IP address


People need to perform the following steps to check if the router is using the above mentioned private IP address.

  • Click on start button to get the start screen. People who are using windows 8 or late can click on the windows button.
  • Next they need to input cmd in the field of search programs. They should see a cmd icon included in the list. c
  • Click on cmd icon.
  • Next type ipconfig in the appropriate field and press enter.
  • People should look for a set of numbers next to default gateway entry. The set of numbers separated by decimal is the router IP address.
  • How to change the password of router


    It is very important to change the password of router so that no one will be able to access as well as configure the router. People should make sire to note down the username and password. Here are the steps they need to follow for changing the router password.

  • First people have to login to their router control panel. They have to type in the default IP address of the router to get the 192.168.0.1 admin screen. Individuals who do not know the default IP address of the router can get help from online forums that discuss on the issues regarding router configuration.
  • The user will see a username and secret key prompt. They need to enter the required details of the router and tap on the login button. The router administration interface page will load.
  • Users have to look for an administrative tab or security tab in the administration interface. There they will find a change password link. Click on the link and type the new password two times.
  • People should make sure that the password is strong. They can even use online password generator to make the password of router stronger. Once they found the IP address and changed the password, they can configure router settings. They can make some adjustments such as modifying LAN configurations, protection and Wi-Fi connections. Users of routers will feel good when they come to know that they can also control specific configurations of router.
