Class LocalFogObject

java.lang.Object
org.web3d.x3d.jsail.X3DConcreteElement
org.web3d.x3d.jsail.X3DConcreteNode
org.web3d.x3d.jsail.EnvironmentalEffects.LocalFogObject
All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DChildNode, X3DNode, LocalFog, X3DFogObject

public class LocalFogObject
extends X3DConcreteNode
implements LocalFog
LocalFog simulates atmospheric effects by blending distant objects with fog color.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DChildNode,X3DFogObject] LocalFog simulates atmospheric effects by blending distant objects with fog color. LocalFog effects occur around the local transformation center, rather than bound to the viewer. The nearest LocalFog node within range takes precedence over other LocalFog and Fog nodes.
  • Hint: LocalFog effects are based on its position in the world, as given by current transformation hierarchy.
  • Hint: LocalFog effects remain independent of current view location.
  • Warning: LocalFog only affects geometry within the same scene subgraph.
  • Warning: LocalFog is not a bindable node.

Note that SFColorObject provides a variety of color constants.

Package hint: This org.web3d.x3d.jsail concrete class is used for implementing a standalone X3D object as a Plain Old Java Object (POJO). If you are writing Java code for use inside an X3D Script node, compile separate code using only the org.web3d.x3d.sai package instead.

    • findElementByNameValue

      public X3DConcreteElement findElementByNameValue​(java.lang.String nameValue)
      Recursive method to provide object reference to node or statement by name attribute, if found as part of this element or in a contained element. Elements with name fields include meta, Metadata* nodes, field/fieldValue, ProtoDeclare/ExternProtoDeclare/ProtoInstance, CAD and HAnim nodes.

      Warning: first start with findAncestorSceneObject() to check entire scene graph, or findAncestorX3DObject() to check entire model document.

      Warning: more than one element may be found that has the same name, this method does not handle that case.
      Specified by:
      findElementByNameValue in class X3DConcreteElement
      Parameters:
      nameValue - is value of the name field being searched for in this element and child elements(if any)
      Returns:
      object reference to found element, null otherwise
      See Also:
      findNodeByDEF(String), X3DConcreteElement.hasAncestorSceneObject(), X3DConcreteElement.findAncestorX3DObject()
    • findElementByNameValue

      public X3DConcreteElement findElementByNameValue​(java.lang.String nameValue, java.lang.String elementName)
      Recursive method to provide object reference to node or statement by name attribute, if found as part of this element or in a contained element. Elements with name fields include meta, Metadata* nodes, field/fieldValue, ProtoDeclare/ExternProtoDeclare/ProtoInstance, CAD and HAnim nodes.

      Warning: first start with findAncestorSceneObject() to check entire scene graph, or findAncestorX3DObject() to check entire model document.

      Warning: more than one element may be found that has the same name, this method does not handle that case.
      Specified by:
      findElementByNameValue in class X3DConcreteElement
      Parameters:
      nameValue - is value of the name field being searched for in this element and child elements(if any)
      elementName - identifies the element of interest (meta MetadataString ProtoDeclare CADassembly ProtoInstance HAnimHumanoid etc.)
      Returns:
      object reference to found element, null otherwise
      See Also:
      findNodeByDEF(String), X3DConcreteElement.hasAncestorSceneObject(), X3DConcreteElement.findAncestorX3DObject()
    • hasElementByNameValue

      public boolean hasElementByNameValue​(java.lang.String nameValue, java.lang.String elementName)
      Recursive method to determine whether node or statement with given name attribute is found, meaning both objects are attached to same scene graph.
      Parameters:
      nameValue - is value of the name field being searched for in this element and child elements(if any)
      elementName - identifies the element of interest (meta MetadataString ProtoDeclare CADassembly ProtoInstance HAnimHumanoid etc.)
      Returns:
      whether node is found
      See Also:
      findElementByNameValue(String, String)
    • findNodeByDEF

      public X3DConcreteNode findNodeByDEF​(java.lang.String DEFvalue)
      Recursive method to provide object reference to node by DEF, if found as this node or in a contained node.

      Warning: first start with findAncestorSceneObject() to check entire scene graph, or findAncestorX3DObject() to check entire model document.

      Warning: more than one element may be found that has the same DEF, this method does not handle that case.
      Specified by:
