[vtkusers] scalar array

Here's how:

first of all you need to make a vtkScalars object out of  your data. 
Here's how to do that:
in this case the scalars are floating point numbers, stored in the 
array eff_rad.

     vtkFloatArray* scalars = vtkFloatArray::New();
         for (int i=0; i<data_size; i++)
             scalars->SetValue(i, eff_rad[i]);

once you get your scalars in such shape, do this:

say your polydata is called p_data.


I needed to do that for this visualization I was doing. I wanted to 
warp a plane using one set of scalars and color it using another set of 
scalars, so I did what I just told you on the output of vtkWarpScalars, 
which is polydata. That changed the colors quite nicely.
