jit.fpsgui

FPS meter

Description

Reports timing and matrix information. Currently available reports: fps (frames per second), ms (milliseconds between incoming data), matrix type, dimensions, planecount, and name.

Examples

Arguments

None.

Attributes

bgcolor [4 floats]

Sets the RGBA values for the data background color of the jit.fpsgui object's display.

bgcolor2 [4 floats]

Sets the RGBA values for the mode background color of the jit.fpsgui object's display. The bgcolor2 attribute is mapped to the elementcolor style color.

dim [32 ints]

g/s(get)

Displays the current dimensions of the incoming matrices.

fps [float]

g/s(get)

Displays the current fps (frames per second) rate of the incoming matrices.

interval [int]

The sampling period, in milliseconds, used when calculating fps and ms (default = 100)

mode [int] (default: 0)

Sets the display mode (default = 0 (fps))
0 = fps
1 = ms
2 = matrix type
3 = matrix dimensions
4 = matrix planecount
5 = matrix name

Possible values:

0 = 'fps'
1 = 'ms'
2 = 'type'
3 = 'dim'
4 = 'planes'
5 = 'name'

ms [float]

g/s(get)

Displays the number of milliseconds elapsed between incoming data.

name [symbol]

g/s(get)

Displays the current name of the incoming matrices.

planecount [int]

g/s(get)

Displays the current planecount of the incoming matrices.

style [symbol]7.0.0

Sets the style to be applied to the object. Styles can be set using the Format palette.

textcolor [4 floats]

Sets the RGBA values for the data text color of the jit.fpsgui object's display. The textcolor attribute is mapped to the textcolor_inverse style color.

timeout [int]

The time interval, in milliseconds, after which the timer resets (default = 2000)

type [symbol]

g/s(get)

Displays the current data type of the incoming matrices.

usetimeout [int]

Sets the timeout flag (default = 1). When the flag is set, use of the timeout attribute is enabled.

Common Box Attributes

annotation [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.

background [int] (default: 0)

Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer. background 1 adds the object to the background layer, background 0 removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.

color [4 floats]

Sets the color for the object box outline.

fontface [int]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:

plain
bold
italic
bold italic

Possible values:

0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'

fontname [symbol]

Sets the object's font.

fontsize [float]

Sets the object's font size (in points).

Possible values:

'8'
'9'
'10'
'11'
'12'
'13'
'14'
'16'
'18'
'20'
'24'
'30'
'36'
'48'
'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

textjustification [int]

Text Justification

Possible values:

0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'

varname [symbol]

Sets the patcher's scripting name, which can be used to address the object by name in pattr, scripting messages to thispatcher, and the js object.

Messages

anything

Arguments

any-message [list]
Any message sent to the object causes it to calculate fps and ms. The matrix attribute displays show n/a .

getstate

Sends a sequence of lists describing the incoming matrix's state out the object's right outlet, one line per attribute. Each line listing line takes the form attribute-name attribute-value1 attribute-value2 ... attribute-valueN .

jit_gl_texture

Arguments

name [symbol]
Causes the object to calculate fps and ms. The name attribute shows the texture name.

(mouse)

Clicking with the mouse lets you select the jit.fpsgui object's display mode.
