Detailed Description

Bogdan Marinov

This class implements a minor planet (an asteroid).

There are two main reasons for having a separate class from Planet:

Some of the code in this class is re-used from the parent Planet class.

Member Function Documentation

virtual QString MinorPlanet::getInfoString ( const StelCore core,
const InfoStringGroup flags 
) const [virtual]

Get a string with data about the MinorPlanet.

Asteroids support the following InfoStringGroup flags:

  • Name
  • Magnitude
  • RaDec
  • AltAzi
  • Distance
  • Size
  • PlainText
    core the StelCore object
    flags a set of InfoStringGroup items to include in the return value.
    a QString containing an HMTL encoded description of the MinorPlanet.

Reimplemented from Planet.

virtual QString MinorPlanet::getType ( void   )  const [inline, virtual]

Reimplemented from Planet.

static QString MinorPlanet::renderProvisionalDesignationinHtml ( QString  plainText  )  [static]

renders the subscript in a minor planet provisional designation with HTML.

an emtpy string if the source string is not a provisional designation.
void MinorPlanet::setAbsoluteMagnitudeAndSlope ( double  magnitude,
double  slope 

sets absolute magnitude (H) and slope parameter (G).

These are the parameters in the IAU's two-parameter magnitude system for minor planets. They are used to calculate the apparent magnitude at different phase angles.

void MinorPlanet::setMinorPlanetNumber ( int  number  ) 

set the minor planet's number, if any.

The number should be specified as an additional parameter, as englishName is passed as a constant to Planet's constructor. The number can be set only once. Any further calls of this function will have no result.

void MinorPlanet::setProvisionalDesignation ( QString  designation  ) 

sets a provisional designation.

At the moment, the only role is for it to be displayed in the info field.

virtual void MinorPlanet::translateName ( StelTranslator trans  )  [virtual]

sets the nameI18 property with the appropriate translation.

Function overriden to handle the problem with name conflicts.

Reimplemented from Planet.
