Detailed Description

The SoSFRotation class is a container for an SbRotation.

This field is used where nodes, engines or other field containers need to store a single rotation definition.

Fields of this type stores their value to file as a rotation axis vector plus a rotation angle: "axis0 axis1 axis2 angle".

Note that there is one very common mistake that is easy to make when setting the value of an SoSFRotation field, and that is to inadvertently use the wrong SbRotation constructor. This example should clarify the problem:

mytransformnode->rotation.setValue(0, 0, 1, 1.5707963f);

The programmer clearly tries to set a PI/2 rotation around the Z axis, but this will fail, as the SbRotation constructor invoked above is the one that takes as arguments the 4 floats of a quaternion. What the programmer almost certainly wanted to do was to use the SbRotation constructor that takes a rotation vector and a rotation angle, which is invoked like this:

mytransformnode->rotation.setValue(SbVec3f(0, 0, 1), 1.5707963f);

Member Function Documentation

◆ getTypeId()

SoType SoSFRotation::getTypeId ( void  ) const
virtual

Returns the type identification instance which uniquely identifies the Coin field class the object belongs to.

See also
getClassTypeId(), SoType

Implements SoField.

◆ copyFrom()

void SoSFRotation::copyFrom ( const SoField f)
virtual

Copy value(s) from f into this field. f must be of the same type as this field.

Implements SoField.

◆ isSame()

SbBool SoSFRotation::isSame ( const SoField f) const
virtual

Check for equal type and value(s).

Implements SoField.

◆ getValue()

void SoSFRotation::getValue ( SbVec3f axis,
float &  angle 
) const

Return value of rotation as an axis and an angle around this axis.

◆ setValue() [1/3]

void SoSFRotation::setValue ( const float  q0,
const float  q1,
const float  q2,
const float  q3 
)

Set the rotation from a set of quaternion values.

◆ setValue() [2/3]

void SoSFRotation::setValue ( const float  q[4])

Set the rotation from a set of quaternion values.

◆ setValue() [3/3]

void SoSFRotation::setValue ( const SbVec3f axis,
const float  angle 
)

Set the rotation from an axis and an angle around this axis.
