Writing plug-in displays


Plug in displays are designed to sit in the bottom of scrolling spectrogram windows and display time series data which are not suitable for overlaying over the spectrogram display itself.

plug in displays take their time axis directly from the spectrogram display so that whatever is displayed is time aligned with the spectrogram data.

To create plug in displays, the developer must create two separate classes

  1. DisplayPanelProviders are used within PAMGUARD to make a list of possible display panels that may be incorporated into other displays.
  2. DisplayPanels provide a graphics panel that is incorporated into the display, taking it's time information from the display.
