pyvista.DataSetAttributes#

class DataSetAttributes(vtkobject: vtkmodules.vtkCommonDataModel.vtkFieldData, dataset: vtkmodules.vtkCommonDataModel.vtkDataSet, association: pyvista.utilities.helpers.FieldAssociation)[source]#

Python friendly wrapper of vtk.DataSetAttributes.

This class provides the ability to pick one of the present arrays as the currently active array for each attribute type by implementing a dict like interface.

When adding data arrays but not desiring to set them as active scalars or vectors, use DataSetAttributes.set_array().

When adding directional data (such as velocity vectors), use DataSetAttributes.set_vectors().

When adding non-directional data (such as temperature values or multi-component scalars like RGBA values), use DataSetAttributes.set_scalars().

Changed in version 0.32.0: The [] operator no longer allows integers. Use DataSetAttributes.get_array() to retrieve an array using an index.

Parameters
vtkobjectvtkFieldData

The vtk object to wrap as a DataSetAttribute, usually an instance of vtk.vtkCellData, vtk.vtkPointData, or vtk.vtkFieldData.

datasetvtkDataSet

The vtkDataSet containing the vtkobject.

associationFieldAssociation

The array association type of the vtkobject.

Notes

When printing out the point arrays, you can see which arrays are the active scalars, vectors, normals, and texture coordinates. In the arrays list, SCALARS denotes that these are the active scalars, VECTORS denotes that these arrays are tagged as the active vectors data (i.e. data with magnitude and direction) and so on.

Examples

Store data with point association in a DataSet.

>>> import pyvista
>>> mesh = pyvista.Cube()
>>> mesh.point_data['my_data'] = range(mesh.n_points)
>>> data = mesh.point_data['my_data']
>>> data
pyvista_ndarray([0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7])

Change the data array and show that this is reflected in the DataSet.

>>> data[:] = 0
>>> mesh.point_data['my_data']
pyvista_ndarray([0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0])

Remove the array.

>>> del mesh.point_data['my_data']
>>> 'my_data' in mesh.point_data
False

Print the available arrays from dataset attributes.

>>> import numpy as np
>>> mesh = pyvista.Plane(i_resolution=1, j_resolution=1)
>>> mesh.point_data.set_array(range(4), 'my-data')
>>> mesh.point_data.set_array(range(5, 9), 'my-other-data')
>>> vectors0 = np.random.random((4, 3))
>>> mesh.point_data.set_vectors(vectors0, 'vectors0')
>>> vectors1 = np.random.random((4, 3))
>>> mesh.point_data.set_vectors(vectors1, 'vectors1')
>>> mesh.point_data
