Interface ImageTexture

All Superinterfaces:
X3DAppearanceChildNode, X3DNode, X3DSingleTextureNode, X3DTexture2DNode, X3DTextureNode, X3DUrlObject
All Known Implementing Classes:
ImageTexture

public interface ImageTexture extends X3DTexture2DNode, X3DUrlObject
ImageTexture maps a 2D-image file onto a geometric shape.

X3D node tooltip: [X3DTexture2DNode,X3DUrlObject] ImageTexture maps a 2D-image file onto a geometric shape. Texture maps have a 2D coordinate system (s, t) horizontal and vertical, with (s, t) texture-coordinate values in range [0.0, 1.0] for opposite corners of the image.
Package hint: This interface is defined by the X3D Java Language Binding Specification for the Scene Authoring Interface (SAI).

  • Method Details

    • getAutoRefresh

      double getAutoRefresh()
      Provide double value in seconds within allowed range of [0,infinity) from inputOutput SFTime field named autoRefresh.

      Tooltip: autoRefresh defines interval in seconds before automatic reload of current url asset is performed.
      • Hint: if preceding file loading fails or load field is false, no refresh is performed.
      • Hint: repeated refresh attempts to reload currently loaded entry of url list. If that fails, the browser retries other entries in the url list.
      • Warning: automatically reloading content has security considerations and needs to be considered carefully.
      Specified by:
      getAutoRefresh in interface X3DUrlObject
      Returns:
      value of autoRefresh field

      double getAutoRefreshTimeLimit()
      Provide double value in seconds within allowed range of [0,infinity) from inputOutput SFTime field named autoRefreshTimeLimit.
