Class LineSetObject

java.lang.Object
All Implemented Interfaces:
X3DNode, LineSet, X3DGeometryNode

public class LineSetObject
extends X3DConcreteNode
implements LineSet
LineSet is a geometry node that can contain a Coordinate|CoordinateDouble node and optionally a Color|ColorRGBA node.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DGeometryNode] LineSet is a geometry node that can contain a Coordinate|CoordinateDouble node and optionally a Color|ColorRGBA node.
  • Hint: Polygonal chain https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polygonal_chain
  • Hint: either values in a contained Color node, or else Material emissiveColor in corresponding Appearance node, are used for rendering lines and points.
  • Warning: lines are not lit, are not texture-mapped, and do not participate in collision detection.
  • Warning: use a different color (or Material emissiveColor) than the Background color, otherwise geometry is invisible.
  • Hint: adding LineProperties to the corresponding Appearance node can modify the rendering style of these lines.
  • Hint: step-wise variation or linear interpolation of color values can be used as a good scientific visualization technique to map arbitrary function values to a color map.
  • 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.
  • Hint: consider including Fog (with Fog color matching Background color) to provide further depth cueing for LineSet (LS).

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.

      X3D Scene Authoring Hints: Naming Conventions
    • setUSE

      public final LineSetObject setUSE​(java.lang.String newValue)
      Accessor method to assign String value to inputOutput SFString field named USE.

      Tooltip: USE means reuse an already DEF-ed node ID, excluding all child nodes and all other attributes (except for containerField, which can have a different value).
      • Hint: USE references to previously defined DEF geometry (instead of duplicating nodes) can improve performance.
      • Warning: do NOT include any child nodes, a DEF attribute, or any other attribute values (except for containerField) when defining a USE attribute.
      • Warning: each USE value must match a corresponding DEF value that is defined earlier in the scene.


      Note: each USE node is still an independent object, with the USE value matching the DEF value in the preceding object.

      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:
      setUSE in class X3DConcreteNode
      Parameters:
      newValue - is new value for the USE field.
      Returns:
      LineSetObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).
    • setUSE

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

      public java.lang.String getCssClass()
      Provide String value from 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
      Overrides:
      getCssClass in class X3DConcreteNode
      Returns:
      value of class field
      See Also:
      W3C Cascading Style Sheets
    • setCssClass

      public final LineSetObject 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:

    • setCssClass

      public LineSetObject 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:
      LineSetObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).
    • setUSE

      public LineSetObject setUSE​(LineSetObject 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:
      LineSetObject - namely this same object to allow sequential method pipelining (i.e. consecutive method invocations on the same object).
