NAME

       SoPathSensor -

       The SoPathSensor class detects changes to paths.

       If you need to know when a path changes (i.e. nodes in the path has been removed, or new
       nodes is added), use this sensor to get a notification.

Detailed Description

       The SoPathSensor class detects changes to paths.

       If you need to know when a path changes (i.e. nodes in the path has been removed, or new
       nodes is added), use this sensor to get a notification.

       You can also use this sensor to detect when some node in the path is changed.

       An SoPathSensor can also act for delete-callback purposes alone and does not need a
       regular notification-based callback. The delete callback will be invoked for when the
       SoPath instance is deleted, not for anything you would be monitoring in a path.

Member Enumeration Documentation

   enum SoPathSensor::TriggerFilter Trigger filter, which decides if the sensor should trigger on
       path changes, changes on nodes in the path, or both.
       Enumerator:

       PATH   Trigger on path changes only.

       NODES  Trigger on node changes only. This can be nodes in the path, or nodes affecting the
              nodes in the path (nodes that updates the state and are left of the node in the
              path).

       PATH_AND_NODES
              Trigger on both path changes and node changes.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

   SoPathSensor::SoPathSensor (void) Default constructor. Use setFunction() to set up a callback
       function later.
   SoPathSensor::SoPathSensor (SoSensorCB *func, void *data) Constructor taking as parameters the
       sensor callback function and the userdata which will be passed the callback.
       See also:
           setFunction(), setData()

   SoPathSensor::~SoPathSensor (void) [virtual] Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

   void SoPathSensor::setTriggerFilter (const TriggerFilterfilter) Set the TriggerFilter for this
       sensor.
       The default is PATH_AND_NODES.

       Since:
           Coin 2.0

   SoPathSensor::TriggerFilter SoPathSensor::getTriggerFilter (void) const Return the
       TriggerFilter for this sensor.
       Since:
           Coin 2.0

   void SoPathSensor::attach (SoPath *path) Attach sensor to a path. Whenever the path changes,
       the sensor will be triggered and call the callback function.
       When the SoPath instance is deleted, the sensor will automatically be detached.

       See also:
           detach()

   void SoPathSensor::detach (void) Detach sensor from path. As long as an SoPathSensor is
       detached, it will never invoke its callback function.
       See also:
           attach()

   SoPath * SoPathSensor::getAttachedPath (void) const Returns a pointer to the path connected to
       the sensor.
       See also:
           attach(), detach()

   void SoPathSensor::notify (SoNotList *l) [protected, virtual] Called from entity we are
       monitoring when it changes.
       If this is an immediate sensor, the field and node (if any) causing the change will be
       stored and can be fetched by getTriggerField() and getTriggerNode(). If the triggerpath
       flag has been set, the path down to the node is also found and stored for later retrieval
       by getTriggerPath().

           setTriggerPathFlag()

       Reimplemented from SoDataSensor.
