// .NAME vtkImplicitPlaneWidget2 - 3D widget for manipulating an infinite plane
// .SECTION Description
// This 3D widget defines an infinite plane that can be interactively placed
// in a scene. The widget is assumed to consist of four parts: 1) a plane
// contained in a 2) bounding box, with a 3) plane normal, which is rooted
// at a 4) point on the plane. (The representation paired with this widget
// determines the actual geometry of the widget.)
// To use this widget, you generally pair it with a vtkImplicitPlaneRepresentation
// (or a subclass). Variuos options are available for controlling how the
// representation appears, and how the widget functions.
// .SECTION Event Bindings
// By default, the widget responds to the following VTK events (i.e., it
// watches the vtkRenderWindowInteractor for these events):
// <pre>
// If the plane normal is selected:
// LeftButtonPressEvent - select normal
// LeftButtonReleaseEvent - release normal
// MouseMoveEvent - orient the normal vector
// If the origin point is selected:
// LeftButtonPressEvent - select slider (if on slider)
// LeftButtonReleaseEvent - release slider (if selected)
// MouseMoveEvent - move the origin point (constrained to the plane)
// If the plane is selected:
// LeftButtonPressEvent - select slider (if on slider)
// LeftButtonReleaseEvent - release slider (if selected)
// MouseMoveEvent - move the plane
// If the outline is selected:
// LeftButtonPressEvent - select slider (if on slider)
// LeftButtonReleaseEvent - release slider (if selected)
// MouseMoveEvent - move the outline
// In all the cases, independent of what is picked, the widget responds to the
// following VTK events:
// MiddleButtonPressEvent - move the plane
// MiddleButtonReleaseEvent - release the plane
// RightButtonPressEvent - scale the widget's representation
// RightButtonReleaseEvent - stop scaling the widget
// MouseMoveEvent - scale (if right button) or move (if middle button) the widget
// </pre>
// Note that the event bindings described above can be changed using this
// class's vtkWidgetEventTranslator. This class translates VTK events
// into the vtkImplicitPlaneWidget2's widget events:
// <pre>
// vtkWidgetEvent::Select -- some part of the widget has been selected
// vtkWidgetEvent::EndSelect -- the selection process has completed
// vtkWidgetEvent::Move -- a request for slider motion has been invoked
// </pre>
// In turn, when these widget events are processed, the vtkImplicitPlaneWidget2
// invokes the following VTK events on itself (which observers can listen for):
// <pre>
// vtkCommand::StartInteractionEvent (on vtkWidgetEvent::Select)
// vtkCommand::EndInteractionEvent (on vtkWidgetEvent::EndSelect)
// vtkCommand::InteractionEvent (on vtkWidgetEvent::Move)
// </pre>
// .SECTION Caveats
// Note that the widget can be picked even when it is "behind"
// other actors. This is an intended feature and not a bug.
// This class, and vtkImplicitPlaneRepresentation, are next generation VTK
// widgets. An earlier version of this functionality was defined in the class
// vtkImplicitPlaneWidget.
