paraview.simple.TextureMaptoCylinder(*input, **params)

This is a filter that generates 2D texture coordinates by mapping input dataset points onto a cylinder. The cylinder is generated automatically. The cylinder is generated automatically by computing the axis of the cylinder. Note that the generated texture coordinates for the s-coordinate ranges from (0-1) (corresponding to angle of 0->360 around axis), while the mapping of the t-coordinate is controlled by the projection of points along the axis.

Data Descriptors


When set, the filter will try to determine the size and orientation of the cylinder used for texture mapping using data bounds.


Set the input to the Texture Map to Cylinder filter.


When **GenerateCylinderAutomatically** is not set, specify the first point defining the axis of the cylinder through its center.


When **GenerateCylinderAutomatically** is not set, specify the second point defining the axis of the cylinder through its center.


Control how the texture coordinates are generated. If Prevent Seam is set, the s-coordinate ranges from 0->1 and 1->0 corresponding to the theta angle variation between 0->180 and 180->0 degrees. Otherwise, the s-coordinate ranges from 0->1 between 0->360 degrees.

list of weak references to the object (if defined)


Initialize = aInitialize(self, connection=None, update=True)

Methods inherited from SourceProxy


Called when the filename of a source proxy is changed.


Returns the associated cell data information.

GetDataInformation(self, idx=None)

This method returns a DataInformation wrapper around a vtkPVDataInformation


Returns the associated cell data information.


Returns the associated point data information.

UpdatePipeline(self, time=None)

This method updates the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated data information. Make sure to update a source to validate the output meta-data.


This method updates the meta-data of the server-side VTK pipeline and the associated information properties

__getitem__(self, idx)

Given a slice, int or string, returns the corresponding output port

Methods inherited from Proxy

GetProperty(self, name)

Given a property name, returns the property object.

GetPropertyValue(self, name)

Returns a scalar for properties with 1 elements, the property itself for vectors.

InitializeFromProxy(self, aProxy, update=True)

Constructor. Assigns proxy to self.SMProxy, updates the server object as well as register the proxy in _pyproxies dictionary.


Returns a list of all property names on this proxy.

SetPropertyWithName(self, pname, arg)

Generic method for setting the value of a property.


Destructor. Cleans up all observers as well as remove the proxy from the _pyproxies dictionary

__eq__(self, other)

Returns true if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__getattr__(self, name)

With the exception of a few overloaded methods, returns the SMProxy method


Return hash(self).

__init__(self, **args)

Default constructor. It can be used to initialize properties by passing keyword arguments where the key is the name of the property. In addition registrationGroup and registrationName (optional) can be specified (as keyword arguments) to automatically register the proxy with the proxy manager.


Creates an iterator for the properties.

__ne__(self, other)

Returns false if the underlying SMProxies are the same.

__setattr__(self, name, value)

Implement setattr(self, name, value).

add_attribute(self, name, value)
