Class LayerSet

All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DNode, LayerSet

public class LayerSet extends X3DConcreteNode implements LayerSet
LayerSet defines a list of layers and a rendering order.

X3D node tooltip: (X3D version 3.2 or later) [X3DNode] LayerSet defines a list of layers and a rendering order. The rendering order is specified by the order field.
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.
