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

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