The Explicit tiling method

This page applies to Harlequin v13.1r0 and later; and to Harlequin Core but not Harlequin MultiRIP

This tiling method can be used to request a set of explicitly defined tiles. The tiles requested can be created by the user. They are presented to the RIP using the same format as presented to the Action procedure in settilingparams , so an Action can easily be used to capture sets of tiles to render later, or in a different RIP. There is one parameter required in the tiling method dictionary alongside the Method selection itself:


An array of dictionaries describing the tiles to render. Each dictionary in this array must contain /BoundingBox (an array of four integers specifying a bounding box). Each dictionary in the array may optionally contain /Page , an integer indicating which page number this tile will be restricted to. If /Page is not specified, the tile will be rendered from all pages.

Tiles specified by the Explicit method will be clipped to the bounding box of the page or element. If a tile is entirely outside the page or element, it will be filtered out.
