NAME

       SoLineSet -

       The SoLineSet class is used to render and organize non-indexed polylines.

       Polylines are specified using the numVertices field. Coordinates, normals, materials and
       texture coordinates are fetched in order from the current state or from the vertexProperty
       node if set. For example, if numVertices is set to [3, 4, 2], this node would specify a
       line through coordinates 0, 1 and 2, a line through coordinates 3, 4, 5 and 6, and finally
       a single line segment between coordinates 7 and 8.

Detailed Description

       The SoLineSet class is used to render and organize non-indexed polylines.

       Polylines are specified using the numVertices field. Coordinates, normals, materials and
       texture coordinates are fetched in order from the current state or from the vertexProperty
       node if set. For example, if numVertices is set to [3, 4, 2], this node would specify a
       line through coordinates 0, 1 and 2, a line through coordinates 3, 4, 5 and 6, and finally
       a single line segment between coordinates 7 and 8.

       Here's a very simple usage example:

         #Inventor V2.1 ascii

         Separator {
            Coordinate3 {
               point [ 0 0 0, 1 1 1, 2 1 1, 2 2 1, 2 2 2, 2 2 3, 2 3 2, 2 3 3, 3 3 3 ]
            }

            LineSet {
               numVertices [ 3, 4, 2 ]
            }
         }
         .fi

       Binding PER_VERTEX, PER_FACE, PER_PART or OVERALL can be set for material, and normals. The default material binding is OVERALL. The default normal binding is PER_VERTEX. If no normals are set, the line set will be rendered with lighting disabled.

       The width of the rendered lines can be controlled through the insertion of an SoDrawStyle node in front of SoLineSet node(s) in the scenegraph.

       FILE FORMAT/DEFAULTS:

           LineSet {
               vertexProperty NULL
               startIndex 0
               numVertices -1
           }

Member Function Documentation

   void SoLineSet::initClass (void) [static] Sets up initialization for data common to all
       instances of this class, like submitting necessary information to the Coin type system.
       Reimplemented from SoNonIndexedShape.

   void SoLineSet::GLRender (SoGLRenderAction *action) [virtual] Action method for the
       SoGLRenderAction.
       This is called during rendering traversals. Nodes influencing the rendering state in any
       way or who wants to throw geometry primitives at OpenGL overrides this method.

       Reimplemented from SoShape.

   void SoLineSet::getBoundingBox (SoGetBoundingBoxAction *action) [virtual] Action method for
       the SoGetBoundingBoxAction.
       Calculates bounding box and center coordinates for node and modifies the values of the
       action to encompass the bounding box for this node and to shift the center point for the
       scene more towards the one for this node.

       Nodes influencing how geometry nodes calculates their bounding box also overrides this
       method to change the relevant state variables.

       Reimplemented from SoShape.

   void SoLineSet::getPrimitiveCount (SoGetPrimitiveCountAction *action) [virtual] Action method
       for the SoGetPrimitiveCountAction.
       Calculates the number of triangle, line segment and point primitives for the node and adds
       these to the counters of the action.

       Nodes influencing how geometry nodes calculates their primitive count also overrides this
       method to change the relevant state variables.

       Reimplemented from SoShape.

   void SoLineSet::generatePrimitives (SoAction *action) [protected, virtual] The method
       implements action behavior for shape nodes for SoCallbackAction. It is invoked from
       SoShape::callback(). (Subclasses should not override SoNode::callback().)
       The subclass implementations uses the convenience methods SoShape::beginShape(),
       SoShape::shapeVertex(), and SoShape::endShape(), with SoDetail instances, to pass the
       primitives making up the shape back to the caller.

       Implements SoShape.

   void SoLineSet::computeBBox (SoAction *action, SbBox3f &box, SbVec3f &center) [protected,
       virtual] Implemented by SoShape subclasses to let the SoShape superclass know the exact
       size and weighted center point of the shape's bounding box.
       The bounding box and center point should be calculated and returned in the local
       coordinate system.

       The method implements action behavior for shape nodes for SoGetBoundingBoxAction. It is
       invoked from SoShape::getBoundingBox(). (Subclasses should not override
       SoNode::getBoundingBox().)

       The box parameter sent in is guaranteed to be an empty box, while center is undefined upon
       function entry.

       Implements SoShape.

Member Data Documentation

   SoMFInt32 SoLineSet::numVertices Used to specify polylines. Each entry specifies the number of
       coordinates in a line. The coordinates are taken in order from the state or from the
       vertexProperty node.
