Colorbar (control panel)
The control panel Colorbar defines transformation settings of the colour table used for false colour assignments in all colorized evaluations (the transformation from function value to a colour). The display of the colour scale can be adjusted here also.
Remark: By changing the setting Colorize of each respective evaluation the function of colorizing by a colour table can be turned off selectively - objects are then homogenously coloured by dark or bright colour instead of being colorized by value.
The position at which the colour bar is displayed can be arbitrarily changed within the 3D view by moving and sizing it with the mouse.
Remark: Even if the colour scale itself is inactive (not visible) chosen colorizing parameters are applied to evaluations!
Remark: Extreme values of temperatures include space temperatures also.
Hint: Fix the Range of the Color Bar to receive comparable results by decoupling it from the actually evaluated domain. This function specific setting takes care for keeping the range constant regardless of changes to boundary conditions, evaluation time point, animation or for different projects.
The position at which the colour bar is displayed can be arbitrarily changed within the 3D view by moving and sizing it with the mouse if the "Moveable" setting is turned on.
You interactively manipulate the position, size, and orientation of a colour
bar. It reacts to to left mouse events and mouse movement. The shape of the
cursor will change based on its location. If the cursor is over an edge of the
colour bar the cursor shape will change to a resize edge shape.
Remark: If the case the colour bar has been accidentally moved outside
of the visible area of the window, it can not be picked with the mouse pointer
anymore for any further movement. To restore the position to some position where
it can be picked and moved again you must close the 3D window and reopen it -
the colour bar will be automatically restored at some visible position nearby
the image edge.
Remark: When Results3D is showing a
periodic evaluation at some evaluation time point, the title of the colour bar will
display that value (lacking other annotations the title of the colour bar has been chosen for now as appropriate). <Function
name><Unit> (<Time Point>)
