Class IMPORTObject

java.lang.Object
All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DChildNode, X3DNode

public class IMPORTObject
extends X3DConcreteStatement
implements X3DChildNode
Functional summary: IMPORT provides ROUTE access to a node that has a corresponding EXPORT statement within an Inline scene. These connections allow event values to be exchanged via ROUTE statements between a parent model and a child Inline model. This concrete class represents an X3D IMPORT statement.

X3D statement tooltip: [X3D statement] IMPORT provides ROUTE access to a node that has a corresponding EXPORT statement within an Inline scene. These connections allow event values to be passed via ROUTE statements between a parent model and a child Inline model.
  • Hint: it is good practice to place IMPORT statements next to corresponding Inline scenes for readability.
  • Hint: see EXPORT statement for corresponding functionality within the related Inline model.
  • Warning: corresponding parent-scene IMPORT and child Inline-scene EXPORT statements are necessary in order to ROUTE values between a parent model and a child Inline model.
  • Hint: X3D Architecture 4.4.6 Import/Export semantics http://www.web3d.org/documents/specifications/19775-1/V3.3/Part01/concepts.html#ImportExportsemantics
