Class LoadSensorObject

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    X3DChildNode, X3DNode, X3DSensorNode, LoadSensor, X3DNetworkSensorNode

    public class LoadSensorObject
    extends X3DConcreteNode
    implements LoadSensor
    X3D node tooltip: [X3DNetworkSensorNode] LoadSensor generates events as watchList child nodes are either loaded or fail to load. Changing watchlist child nodes restarts the LoadSensor.
    • Hint: use multiple LoadSensor nodes to track multiple loading nodes individually.
    • Hint: Background is not sensed due to multiple-image ambiguity.
    • Warning: watchList child nodes are not rendered, so normally USE copies of other nodes to sense load status.
    • Hint: use Inline 'load' field to prompt or defer loading.
    • Warning: new X3D node, not supported in VRML97.

    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.

        Warning: invoking the setUSE() method on this node resets all other fields to their default values (except for containerField) and also releases all child nodes.

        Warning: no other operations can be performed to modify a USE node other than setting an alternate containerField value.
        Specified by:

        public final LoadSensorObject setCssClass​(java.lang.String newValue)
        Accessor method to assign String value to inputOutput SFString field named class.

        Tooltip: The class attribute is a space-separated list of classes, reserved for use by CSS cascading stylesheets.
        • Warning: currently the class attribute is only supported in XML encoding of X3D scenes.
        • Hint: W3C Cascading Style Sheets https://www.w3.org/Style/CSS
        Specified by:
        setCssClass in class X3DConcreteNode
        Parameters:
        newValue - is new value for the class field.
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).

      • setCssClass

        public LoadSensorObject setCssClass​(SFStringObject newValue)
        Assign typed object value to SFString cssClass field, similar to setCssClass(String).
        Parameters:
        newValue - is new value for the class field.
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).
      • setUSE

        public LoadSensorObject setUSE​(LoadSensorObject DEFnode)
        Assign a USE reference to another DEF node of same node type, similar to setUSE(String).

        Warning: note that the setUSE() method on this node resets all other fields to their default values (except for containerField) and also releases all child nodes.

        Warning: no other operations can be performed to modify a USE node other than setting an alternate containerField value.
        Parameters:
        DEFnode - must have a DEF value defined
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).

        Parameters:
        newComment - initial value
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive setAttribute method invocations).
      • addComments

        Parameters:
        newComments - array of comments
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive setAttribute method invocations).
      • addComments

        public LoadSensorObject addComments​(CommentsBlock newCommentsBlock)
        Add CommentsBlock to contained commentsList.
        Specified by:
        addComments in class X3DConcreteElement
        Parameters:
        newCommentsBlock - block of comments to add
        Returns:
        LoadSensorObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive setAttribute method invocations).
      • 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
