TLatex Class Reference

To draw Mathematical Formula.

TLatex's purpose is to write mathematical equations. The syntax is very similar to the Latex's one. It provides several functionalities:

When the font precision (see TAttText) is low (0 or 1), TLatex is painted as a normal TText, the control characters are not interpreted.

## Subscripts and Superscripts

Subscripts and superscripts are made with the _ and ^ commands. These commands can be combined to make complicated subscript and superscript expressions. You may adjust the display of subscripts and superscripts by using the two functions SetIndiceSize(Double_t), which set relative size of subscripts and superscripts, and SetLimitIndiceSize(Int_t), which set limits for text resizing of subscripts and superscripts.

Examples:

The best way to put the subscripts and superscripts before the character and not after, is to use an empty character:

The subscripts and superscripts operators apply not only on one character but on all the "normal text" preceding them. In the following example the second E is lower than the first one because the operator _ is applied on /f which has a descending part, and not only on f which as no descending part.

To make sure the second operator _ applies only on f a dummy operator ^{} should be introduced to separate the f from the /.

## Fractions

Fractions denoted by the / symbol are made in the obvious way. The #frac command is used for large fractions in displayed formula; it has two arguments: the numerator and the denominator.

Examples:

## Splitting Lines

Text can be split in two lines via the command #splitline.

Examples:

## Roots

The #sqrt command produces the square root of its argument; it has an optional first argument for other roots.

Examples:

## Mathematical Symbols

TLatex can display dozens of special mathematical symbols. A few of them, such as + and > , are produced by typing the corresponding keyboard character. Others are obtained with the commands in the following table:

## Delimiters

TLatex provides 4 kinds of proportional delimiters:

#[]{....} or "a la" Latex #left[.....#right] : big square brackets
#{}{....} or              #left{.....#right} : big curly brackets
#||{....} or              #left|.....#right| : big absolute value symbols
#(){....} or              #left(.....#right) : big parentheses


## Greek Letters

The command to produce a lowercase Greek letter is obtained by adding a # to the name of the letter. For an uppercase Greek letter, just capitalize the first letter of the command name. Some letters have two representations. The name of the second one (the "variation") starts with "var". The following table gives the complete list:

## Accents

Several kind of accents are available:

The special sign: #slash draws a slash on top of the text between brackets:

Bar and vectors sign are done the following way:

## Changing Style

One can change the font, the text color, or the text size at any time using : #font[font-number]{...}, #color[color-number]{...} and #scale[scale-factor]{...}

Examples:

## Alignment Rules

The TText alignment rules apply to the TLatex objects with one exception concerning the vertical alignment:

• if the vertical alignment = 1 , subscripts are not taken into account
• if the vertical alignment = 0 , the text is aligned to the box surrounding the full text with sub and superscripts

This is illustrated by the following example:

{
TCanvas Tlva("Tlva","Tlva",500,500);
Tlva.SetGrid();
Tlva.DrawFrame(0,0,1,1);
const char *longstring = "K_{S}... K^{*0}... #frac{2s}{#pi#alpha^{2}} #frac{d#sigma}{dcos#theta} (e^{+}e^{-} #rightarrow f#bar{f} ) = #left| #frac{1}{1 - #Delta#alpha} #right|^{2} (1+cos^{2}#theta)";
TLatex latex;

latex.SetTextAlign(13); //align at top
latex.DrawLatex(.2,.9,"K_{S}");
latex.DrawLatex(.3,.9,"K^{*0}");

The two commands #kern and #lower enable a better control over character placement. The command #kern[(Float_t)dx]{text} moves the output string horizontally by the fraction dx of its length. Similarly, #lower[(Float_t)dy]{text} shifts the text up or down by the fraction dy of its height.

Examples:

## Italic and Boldface

Text can be turned italic or boldface using the commands #it and #bf.

Examples:

## Interface to TMathText

The class TMathText is a TeX math formulae interpreter. It uses plain TeX syntax and uses "\\" as control instead of "#". If a piece of text containing "\" is given to TLatex then TMathText is automatically invoked. Therefore, as histograms' titles, axis titles, labels etc ... are drawn using TLatex, the TMathText syntax can be used for them also.

## ◆ Analyse()

 TLatex::TLatexFormSize TLatex::Analyse ( Double_t x, Double_t y, TextSpec_t spec, const Char_t * t, Int_t length )
protected

Analyse and paint the TLatex formula.

It is called twice : first for calculating the size of each portion of the formula, then to paint the formula. When analyse finds an operator or separator, it calls itself recursively to analyse the arguments of the operator. when the argument is an atom (normal text), it calculates the size of it and return it as the result. for example : if the operator #frac{arg1}{arg2} is found : Analyse(arg1) return the size of arg1 (width, up, down) Analyse(arg2) return the size of arg2 now, we know the size of #frac{arg1}{arg2}:

width = max(width_arg1, width_arg2)
up = up_arg1 + down_arg1
down = up_arg2 + down_arg2
Option_t Option_t width

so, when the user wants to paint a fraction at position (x,y), the rect used for the formula is : (x,y-up,x+width,y+down)

return size of zone occupied by the text/formula

• t : chain to be analyzed
• length : number of chars in t.
