Class: TileSource

OpenSeadragon.TileSource

The TileSource contains the most basic implementation required to create a smooth transition between layers in an image pyramid. It has only a single key interface that must be implemented to complete its key functionality: 'getTileUrl'. It also has several optional interfaces that can be implemented if a new TileSource wishes to support configuration via a simple object or array ('configure') and if the tile source supports or requires configuration via retrieval of a document on the network ala AJAX or JSONP, ('getImageInfo').
By default the image pyramid is split into N layers where the image's longest side in M (in pixels), where N is the smallest integer which satisfies 2^(N+1) >= M.

Constructor

new TileSource(options)

Parameters:
Name Type Description
options Object You can either specify a URL, or literally define the TileSource (by specifying width, height, tileSize, tileOverlap, minLevel, and maxLevel). For the former, the extending class is expected to implement 'getImageInfo' and 'configure'. For the latter, the construction is assumed to occur through the extending classes implementation of 'configure'.
Properties
Name Type Attributes Description
url String <optional>
The URL for the data necessary for this TileSource.
referenceStripThumbnailUrl String <optional>
The URL for a thumbnail image to be used by the reference strip
success function <optional>
A function to be called upon successful creation.
ajaxWithCredentials Boolean <optional>
If this TileSource needs to make an AJAX call, this specifies whether to set the XHR's withCredentials (for accessing secure data).
ajaxHeaders Object <optional>
A set of headers to include in AJAX requests.
splitHashDataForPost Boolean <optional>
First occurrence of '#' in the options.url is used to split URL and the latter part is treated as POST data (applies to getImageInfo(...))
width Number <optional>
Width of the source image at max resolution in pixels.
height Number <optional>
Height of the source image at max resolution in pixels.
tileSize Number <optional>
The size of the tiles to assumed to make up each pyramid layer in pixels. Tile size determines the point at which the image pyramid must be divided into a matrix of smaller images. Use options.tileWidth and options.tileHeight to support non-square tiles.
tileWidth Number <optional>
The width of the tiles to assumed to make up each pyramid layer in pixels.
tileHeight Number <optional>
The height of the tiles to assumed to make up each pyramid layer in pixels.
tileOverlap Number <optional>
The number of pixels each tile is expected to overlap touching tiles.
minLevel Number <optional>
The minimum level to attempt to load.
maxLevel Number <optional>
The maximum level to attempt to load.

configure(data, url, postData) → {Object}

Responsible for parsing and configuring the image metadata pertinent to this TileSources implementation. This method is not implemented by this class other than to throw an Error announcing you have to implement it. Because of the variety of tile server technologies, and various specifications for building image pyramids, this method is here to allow easy integration.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
data String | Object | Array | Document
url String the url the data was loaded from if any.
postData String HTTP POST data in k=v&k2=v2... form or null value obtained from the protocol URL after '#' sign if flag splitHashDataForPost set to 'true'
Source:
Throws:
Error
Returns:
options - A dictionary of keyword arguments sufficient to configure the tile source constructor (include all values you want to instantiate the TileSource subclass with - what _options_ object should contain).
Type
Object

getClosestLevel() → {Number}

Returns:
The highest level in this tile source that can be contained in a single tile.
Type
Number

getHandler(eventName)

Get a function which iterates the list of all handlers registered for a given event, calling the handler for each.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
level Number
Source:

getTileAjaxHeaders(level, x, y) → {Object}

Responsible for retrieving the headers which will be attached to the image request for the region specified by the given x, y, and level components. This option is only relevant if OpenSeadragon.Options.loadTilesWithAjax is set to true. The headers returned here will override headers specified at the Viewer or TiledImage level. Specifying a falsy value for a header will clear its existing value set at the Viewer or TiledImage level (if any).
Parameters:
Name Type Description
level Number
x Number
y Number

Returns:
Type
Object

getTileAtPoint(level, point)

Parameters:

point OpenSeadragon.Point
Source:

getTileBounds(level, x, y, isSourceopt) → {OpenSeadragon.Rect}

Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Default Description
level Number
x Number
y Number
isSource Boolean <optional>
false Whether to return the source bounds of the tile.
Source:
Returns:
Either where this tile fits (in normalized coordinates) or the portion of the tile to use as the source of the drawing operation (in pixels), depending on the isSource parameter.
Type
OpenSeadragon.Rect

getTileHashKey(level, x, y, url, ajaxHeaders, postData)

The tile cache object is uniquely determined by this key and used to lookup the image data in cache: keys should be different if images are different. In case a tile has context2D property defined (TileSource.prototype.getContext2D) or its context2D is set manually; the cache is not used and this function is irrelevant. Note: default behaviour does not take into account post data.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
level Number tile level it was fetched with
x Number x-coordinate in the pyramid level
y Number y-coordinate in the pyramid level
url String the tile was fetched with
ajaxHeaders Object the tile was fetched with
postData * data the tile was fetched with (type depends on getTilePostData(..) return type)
Source:

getTileHeight(level)

Return the tileHeight for a given level. Subclasses should override this if tileHeight can be different at different levels such as in IIIFTileSource. Code should use this function rather than reading from ._tileHeight directly.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
level Number
Source:

getTilePostData(level, x, y) → {*|null}

Must use AJAX in order to work, i.e. loadTilesWithAjax = true is set. If a value is returned, ajax issues POST request to the tile url. If null is returned, ajax issues GET request. The return value must comply to the header 'content type'. Examples (USED HEADER --> getTilePostData CODE): 'Content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' --> return "key1=value=1&key2=value2"; 'Content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded' --> return JSON.stringify({key: "value", number: 5}); 'Content-type': 'multipart/form-data' --> let result = new FormData(); result.append("data", myData); return result; IMPORTANT: in case you move all the logic on image fetching to post data, you must re-define 'getTileHashKey(...)' to stay unique for different tile images.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
level Number
x Number
y Number
Source:
Returns:
post data to send with tile configuration request
Type
* | null

getTileUrl(level, x, y)

x Number
y Number
Source:
Throws:
Error

getTileWidth(level)

Return the tileWidth for a given level. Subclasses should override this if tileWidth can be different at different levels such as in IIIFTileSource. Code should use this function rather than reading from ._tileWidth directly.
