Class IMPORT

java.lang.Object
All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DChildNode, X3DNode

public class IMPORT extends X3DConcreteStatement implements X3DChildNode
Functional summary: IMPORT provides ROUTE access to a node that has a corresponding EXPORT statement within an Inline scene. These connections allow event values to be exchanged via ROUTE statements between a parent model and a child Inline model. This concrete class represents an X3D IMPORT statement.

IMPORT statement tooltip: IMPORT enables ROUTE access to an external node that has a corresponding EXPORT statement within an Inline scene. Such connections allow event values to be passed via ROUTE statements between a parent model and a child Inline model.
  • Hint: it is good practice to place IMPORT statements next to corresponding Inline scenes for readability.
  • Hint: see EXPORT statement for corresponding functionality within the related Inline model.
  • Warning: corresponding parent-scene IMPORT and child Inline-scene EXPORT statements are necessary in order to ROUTE values between a parent model and a child Inline model.
  • Warning: node types must match.
  • Hint: X3D Architecture 4.4.6 Import/Export semantics https://www.web3d.org/specifications/X3Dv4/ISO-IEC19775-1v4-IS//Part01/concepts.html#ImportExportsemantics
