I want to try out the
vtkConnectedPointsFilter on some data I have without writing any code. I don’t see it in the massive list of filters available in the menu structure seen in ParaView’s “Filters > Alphabetical > …” submenu.
Is it there and I just don’t recognize its name, or is it not in ParaView?
Is there an easy-to-read/lookup mapping somewhere that says exactly what VTK class is underneath each of those menu items?
You can download ParaView source code and run the following :
grep -r vtkConnectedPointsFilter | grep xml
,which came up empty.
The mapping is defined in multiple xml files, the main one being :
We may want to improve this somehow.
Thanks. At least there’s a way.

<Documentation>Internal filter used by (filters, ProbeLine). The Plot
Over Line filter samples the data set attributes of the current data set
at the points along a line. The values of the point-centered variables
along that line will be displayed in an XY Plot. This filter uses
interpolation to determine the values at the selected point, whether or
not it lies at an input point. The Probe filter operates on any type of
data and produces polygonal output (a line).</Documentation>

I’ll clone it down and search with “git grep” for other filters I’m looking for too. Thanks for the quick reply.
