class  CompassMarks
 Main class of the Compass Marks plug-in. More...

Detailed Description

Stellarium helps the user get their bearings using the cardinal point feature - the North, South, East and West markers on the horizon. CompassMarks takes this idea and extends it to add markings every few degrees along the horizon, and includes compass bearing values in degrees.

class CompassMarks

Provides a ring of marks indicating azimuth on the horizon, like a compass dial.

virtual void CompassMarks::draw ( StelCore core)
corethe core to use for the drawing

Reimplemented from StelModule.

virtual double CompassMarks::getCallOrder ( StelModuleActionName  actionName) const
actionNamethe name of the action for which we want the call order
the value defining the order. The closer to 0 the earlier the module's action will be called

Reimplemented from StelModule.

virtual void CompassMarks::init ( )

If the initialization takes significant time, the progress should be displayed on the loading bar.

Implements StelModule.

void CompassMarks::loadConfiguration ( )

Settings are kept in the "CompassMarks" section in Stellarium's configuration file. If no such section exists, it will load default values.
