Please wait. Due to its content this page might take a while to load...

The Angle/Distance to X/Y filter node receives an angle and a distance forming a straight line starting at the origin, and calculates the coordinates of the point resulting from it.

The node can be found under Nodes > Filter Nodes > Angle/Distance to X/Y

wd_nodes_filter_angle-distance-to-X-Y

Node properties

Angle:

Choose an input node from the drop-down or enter a numeric value for the angle (in degrees).

Distance:

Choose an input node from the drop-down or enter a numeric value for the distance between origin and resulting point.

Node control

With Widget Designer version 6, all nodes support so called node commands. Node commands access functions (i.e methods) from a node and / or set a parameter (i.e. property).

Enter "node", followed by the according ID and a dot and a list will pop up showing all available commands for the node. For instance, Node1.TintColor.SetRGB(125,0,255), colors the node in purple.
In addition, the node properties with a parameter ID (the small superscript number) can be edited via the command Node1.SetParam(ID,new Value) or WDNodeSetParam(NodeID,ParamID,Value).

Node output values

The Node generates the following output:

- X (coordinate of the resulting point)

- Y (coordinate of the resulting point)

Please bear in mind that the initial side of the angle is based on the Y-axis instead of the X-axis like in most Cartesian coordinate systems!
