Pause the Animation
Sometimes, you would like the animation to be paused without pressing any button but from the Simulation itself. For example if solver does not converge, you might want to stop the animation so you can look at it carefully, or because the interesting part is over. This is now possible, using a PauseAnimation component. This component has a method pause() that tells the Simulation it should paused using setPaused() a write accessor on the Simulation field paused. The RealGUI step() we check the state of the Simulation to know if we should stop the Animation, pressing back the Animate button.
PauseAnimationOnEvent is derived from PauseAnimation and handles PauseEvent event. When it receives this event, it calls the pause() method. Add the following component on your scene description:
Then launch the PauseEvent where you want to in your code. For example, when your solver does not succeed to converge, or when the simulated end time has been reached… (To learn how to launch a visitor).
