It can be use as stand alone application, as well as from inside pyFormex. The viewer allows browsing through directories, selecting an image to be displayed. The image can be resized to fit a window.


  • parent: The parent Qt widget (the Qt app in the stand alone case).
  • path: string: the full path to the image to be initially displayed.
