public class ElevationGridObject
extends X3DConcreteNode
implements ElevationGrid
ElevationGrid is a geometry node defining a rectangular height field, with default values for a 1m by 1m square at height 0.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DGeometryNode] ElevationGrid is a geometry node defining a rectangular height field, with default values for a 1m by 1m square at height 0. Vertices corresponding to ElevationGrid height values define quadrilaterals, which are placed above or below a flat surface.
  • Hint: the height array defines (xDimension-1)*(zDimension-1) quadrilaterals.
  • Warning: generated quadrilaterals can be nonplanar. Tessellation splits quadrilaterals into triangles along seam starting at initial vertex of the quadrilateral and proceeding to opposite vertex.
  • Hint: positive direction for normal of each triangle is on same side of the quadrilateral. Triangles are defined either counterclockwise or clockwise depending on value of ccw field.
  • Hint: ElevationGrid can contain Color|ColorRGBA, Normal and TextureCoordinate nodes.
  • Hint: insert a Shape node before adding geometry or Appearance.
  • Hint: for advanced extensibility, authors can substitute a type-matched ProtoInstance node (with correct containerField value) for contained node content.

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

      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:
      findNodeByDEF in class X3DConcreteElement
      Parameters:
      DEFvalue - is value of the name field being searched for in this element and child elements(if any)
      Returns:
      object reference to found node, null otherwise
