How to attach callback to select text

Hi,

Is it possible to have rendered text objects selectable with the tap or box-selection tools?

In the sample below, rendered circles and quads can be selected but not the text objects.

import bokeh.plotting as BPlotting
import bokeh.models as BModels

def circle_CB(window=None):
selected_indices = cb_obj.selected[‘1d’].indices
console.log(“circle_CB: selected_indices”, selected_indices)

def text_CB(window=None):
selected_indices = cb_obj.selected[‘1d’].indices
console.log(“text_CB: selected_indices”, selected_indices)

def quad_CB(window=None):
selected_indices = cb_obj.selected[‘1d’].indices
console.log(“quad_CB: selected_indices”, selected_indices)

p = BPlotting.figure(tools=“tap,box_select”)

x = range(5)

y1 = x
source1 = BPlotting.ColumnDataSource( data=dict(x=x, y=y1) )
source1.callback = BModels.CustomJS.from_py_func(circle_CB)
p.circle(‘x’, ‘y’, source=source1)

y2 = [i+5 for i in x]
t2 = [str(i) for i in y2]
source2 = BPlotting.ColumnDataSource( data=dict(x=x, y=y2, text=t2) )
source2.callback = BModels.CustomJS.from_py_func(text_CB)
p.text(‘x’, ‘y’, source=source2, text=‘text’)

l = [1,2]
r = [2,3]
b = [3,4]
t = [4,5]
source3 = BPlotting.ColumnDataSource( data=dict(l=l, r=r, b=b, t=t) )
source3.callback = BModels.CustomJS.from_py_func(quad_CB)
p.quad(left=‘l’, right=‘r’, bottom=‘b’, top=‘t’, alpha=0.7, source=source3)

BPlotting.output_file(‘select_text.html’)
BPlotting.save§

Hi,

Text glyphs do no currently support hit-testing, so hover or selections (or callbacks based on those) do not work with text yet. Adding this feature would be a nice task for a new contributor. In any case I don't actually see a GH issue for it, so making a feature request on GH would be the first step:

  https://github.com/bokeh/bokeh/issues

As an immediate workaround, you could possibly plot transparent (alpha=0) rectangles or other glyphs on top of the text, and use those for hit testing.

Thanks,

Bryan

BPlotting.save(p)

With regards to your idea of plotting transparent rectangles with the text. How would I go about determining the bounds of the text glyph and hence the bounds of the rectangle?

I took a quick look through the docs but didn’t see anything obvious.

cheers

Hi,

There isn't a way, which is what I meant by "possibly" being a solution. If your labels are regular enough you could estimate a size for them. If they change length frequently this may not be a useful approach.

Thanks,

Bryan
