This namespace contains constants representing various styles of overlay highlighting.
The OEHighlightOverlayStyle namespace contains the following constants:
The default highlighting style is OEHighlightOverlayStyle_BallAndStick.
The radius of the spheres and the width of the sticks are automatically scaled with the molecule. See example in Figure: Example of scaling the ‘BallAndStick’ style highlighting along with the molecule.
It is recommended to select colors with high contrast when highlighting overlapped patterns with the OEHighlightOverlayStyle_BallAndStick style.
Event though there is not limit on the number of overlapping patterns that can be highlighted simultaneously, attempting to highlight to many patterns will result in a complex image that will be difficult to visually interpret. See example in Figure: Example of highlighting extremely overlapping patterns In this image, all unique ‘phenol’ substructures of a molecule are highlighted simultaneously.
