Class connect

java.lang.Object

public class connect
extends X3DConcreteStatement
Functional summary: connect statements define event-routing connections between node fields defined inside a ProtoBody declaration back to corresponding ProtoInterface fields. This concrete class represents an X3D connect statement.

X3D statement tooltip: [X3D statement] connect statements define event-routing connections between node fields defined inside a ProtoBody declaration back to corresponding ProtoInterface fields. To define each Prototype connection between a ProtoInterface field and a ProtoBody node field, add one or more connect statements within each IS statement.
