Detailed Description

An abstract base class that should never be used directly, only inherited.

This class used to be called Telescope, but it has been renamed to TelescopeClient in order to resolve a compiler/linker conflict with the identically named Telescope class in Stellarium's main code.

Definition at line 53 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

Member Function Documentation

virtual double TelescopeClient::getAngularSize ( const StelCore core) const
inlinevirtual

Return the angular radius of a circle containing the object as seen from the observer with the circle center assumed to be at getJ2000EquatorialPos().

Returns
radius in degree. This value is the apparent angular size of the object, and is independent of the current FOV.

Implements StelObject.

Definition at line 79 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

QString TelescopeClient::getEnglishName ( void  ) const
inlinevirtual

Return object's name in english.

Implements StelObject.

Definition at line 62 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

QString TelescopeClient::getID ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns a unique identifier for this object.

The ID should be unique for all objects of the same type, but may freely conflict with IDs of other types, so getType() must also be tested.

With this it should be possible to at least identify the same object in a different instance of Stellarium running the same version, but it would even be better if the ID provides some degree of forward-compatibility. For some object types (e.g. planets) this may simply return getEnglishName(), but better candidates may be official designations or at least (stable) internal IDs.

An object may have multiple IDs (different catalog numbers, etc). StelObjectMgr::searchByID() should search through all ID variants, but this method only returns one of them.

Implements StelObject.

Definition at line 78 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

Vec3f TelescopeClient::getInfoColor ( void  ) const
inlinevirtual

Get a color used to display info about the object.

Reimplemented from StelObject.

Definition at line 64 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

QString TelescopeClient::getInfoString ( const StelCore core,
const InfoStringGroup &  flags 
) const
virtual

TelescopeClient supports the following InfoStringGroup flags:

  • Name
  • RaDecJ2000
  • RaDec
  • PlainText
    Parameters
    corethe StelCore object
    flagsa set of InfoStringGroup items to include in the return value.
    Returns
    a QString containing an HMTL encoded description of the Telescope.

Implements StelObject.

QString TelescopeClient::getNameI18n ( void  ) const
inlinevirtual

Return translated object's name.

Implements StelObject.

Definition at line 63 of file TelescopeClient.hpp.

QString TelescopeClient::getType ( void  ) const
inlinevirtual

Return object's type. It should be the name of the class.

Implements StelObject.
