Class Sphere

All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DNode, Sphere, X3DGeometryNode

public class Sphere extends X3DConcreteNode implements Sphere
Sphere is a geometry node, representing a perfectly round geometrical object that is the surface of a completely round ball.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DGeometryNode] Sphere is a geometry node, representing a perfectly round geometrical object that is the surface of a completely round ball.
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(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 findAncestorScene() to check entire scene graph, or findAncestorX3D() 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.hasAncestorScene(), X3DConcreteElement.findAncestorX3D()
