Slice Selection Filter Listener

This filter is a listener that allows users to click on a plot and take slices through data. The user supplies formulas for the x and y values. These should match the ones used in the plot. There are three styles of slices, vertical, horizontal, and general. The vertical and horizontal slices do what the name implies. The general one allows you to click and drag to take any slice though the data.

The end points of the slices are shown and can be edited by the user. For vertical or horizontal slices these points are the same. You can also edit the thickness of the slice. If you select the "Redo data on drag?" option then the data should update as you drag. This is not recommended for large plots.

A sample plot showing the use of a slice selection filter is drawn below.

NOTE: This filter does not support streams as they don't have much meaning for listeners. Also remember that for a listener to be active, you have to add it under the Listeners tab of the plot.
