Detailed Description

The SoWWWInline class is a node used to include data from an URL.

If the URL is not a local file, the application is responsible for supplying a callback to a function which will fetch the data of the URL.

As long as no data have been imported, the scene graph representation of the node will be that of a bounding box enclosing the geometry we expect to fetch from the URL. The application is naturally also responsible for specifying the expected dimensions of the geometry.

If FetchURLCallBack isn't set, the alternateRep will be rendered instead.

Member Function Documentation

◆ getTypeId()

SoType SoWWWInline::getTypeId ( void  ) const

Returns the type identification of an object derived from a class inheriting SoBase. This is used for runtime type checking and "downward" casting.

Usage example:

void foo(SoNode * node)
if (node->getTypeId() == SoFile::getClassTypeId()) {
SoFile * filenode = (SoFile *)node; // safe downward cast, knows the type

For application programmers wanting to extend the library with new nodes, engines, nodekits, draggers or others: this method needs to be overridden in all subclasses. This is typically done as part of setting up the full type system for extension classes, which is usually accomplished by using the predefined macros available through for instance Inventor/nodes/SoSubNode.h (SO_NODE_INIT_CLASS and SO_NODE_CONSTRUCTOR for node classes), Inventor/engines/SoSubEngine.h (for engine classes) and so on.

For more information on writing Coin extensions, see the class documentation of the top level superclasses for the various class groups.

Implements SoBase.

◆ getFieldData()

const SoFieldData * SoWWWInline::getFieldData ( void  ) const

Returns a pointer to the class-wide field data storage object for this instance. If no fields are present, returns NULL.

Reimplemented from SoFieldContainer.

◆ setFullURLName()

void SoWWWInline::setFullURLName ( const SbString url)

If the SoWWWInline::name field specifies a relative URL, use this method to name the complete URL.

◆ getFullURLName()

const SbString & SoWWWInline::getFullURLName ( void  )

If a full URL has been set with the SoWWWInline::setFullURLName() method, return it. If not, returns the value of the SoWWWInline::name field.

◆ copyChildren()

SoGroup * SoWWWInline::copyChildren ( void  ) const

Returns a subgraph with a deep copy of the children of this node.

◆ requestURLData()

void SoWWWInline::requestURLData ( void  )

Start requesting URL data. This might trigger a callback to the callback set in SoWWWInline::setFetchURLCallBack().

◆ isURLDataRequested()

SbBool SoWWWInline::isURLDataRequested ( void  ) const

Returns TRUE if SoWWWInline::requestURLData() has been called without being canceled by SoWWWInline::cancelURLData().

◆ isURLDataHere()

SbBool SoWWWInline::isURLDataHere ( void  ) const

Return TRUE if the current child data have been read from file/URL and set using setChildData().

◆ cancelURLDataRequest()

void SoWWWInline::cancelURLDataRequest ( void  )

Can be used to signal that URL loading has been canceled. You should use this method if you intend to request URL data more than once.

◆ setChildData()

void SoWWWInline::setChildData ( SoNode urldata)

Manually set up the subgraph for this node. This should be used by the application to set the data that was read from the file/URL.

◆ getChildData()

SoNode * SoWWWInline::getChildData ( void  ) const

Returns the child data for this node. This can be data read from a file, from an URL, from the contents of SoWWWInline::alternateRep or data that was manually set with SoWWWInline::setChildData().

◆ getChildren()

SoChildList * SoWWWInline::getChildren ( void  ) const

Returns the child list with the child data for this node.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ setFetchURLCallBack()

void SoWWWInline::setFetchURLCallBack ( SoWWWInlineFetchURLCB *  f,
void *  userdata 

Sets the URL fetch callback. This will be used in SoWWWInline::readInstance() or when the user calls SoWWWInline::requestURLData(). FIXME: Shouldn't called on readInstance(), only when we need to render the node (or calculate the bbox if we don't have one). kintel 20060203.

◆ setBoundingBoxVisibility()

void SoWWWInline::setBoundingBoxVisibility ( BboxVisibility  b)

Sets the bounding box visibility strategy. The default is UNTIL_LOADED.

◆ getBoundingBoxVisibility()

SoWWWInline::BboxVisibility SoWWWInline::getBoundingBoxVisibility ( void  )

Returns the bounding box visibility.

◆ setBoundingBoxColor()

void SoWWWInline::setBoundingBoxColor ( SbColor c)

Sets the bounding box color.

◆ getBoundingBoxColor()

const SbColor & SoWWWInline::getBoundingBoxColor ( void  )

Returns the bounding box color.

◆ setReadAsSoFile()

void SoWWWInline::setReadAsSoFile ( SbBool  onoff)

Sets whether children should be read from a local file, in the same manner as SoFile children are read.

If this is set to TRUE, the URL must point to a file on the local file system, as can be accessed by the standard C library fopen() call.

◆ getReadAsSoFile()

SbBool SoWWWInline::getReadAsSoFile ( void  )

Returns if children should be read from local files.

◆ doAction()

void SoWWWInline::doAction ( SoAction action)

This function performs the typical operation of a node for any action.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ doActionOnKidsOrBox()

void SoWWWInline::doActionOnKidsOrBox ( SoAction action)

This method should probably have been private in Open Inventor API. It is obsoleted in Coin. Let us know if you need it.

◆ callback()

void SoWWWInline::callback ( SoCallbackAction action)

Action method for SoCallbackAction.

Simply updates the state according to how the node behaves for the render action, so the application programmer can use the SoCallbackAction for extracting information about the scene graph.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ GLRender()

void SoWWWInline::GLRender ( SoGLRenderAction action)

Action method for the SoGLRenderAction.

This is called during rendering traversals. Nodes influencing the rendering state in any way or want to throw geometry primitives at OpenGL override this method.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ getBoundingBox()

void SoWWWInline::getBoundingBox ( SoGetBoundingBoxAction action)

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 calculate their bounding box also override this method to change the relevant state variables.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ getMatrix()

void SoWWWInline::getMatrix ( SoGetMatrixAction action)

Action method for SoGetMatrixAction.

Updates action by accumulating with the transformation matrix of this node (if any).

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ handleEvent()

void SoWWWInline::handleEvent ( SoHandleEventAction action)

Action method for SoHandleEventAction.

Inspects the event data from action, and processes it if it is something which this node should react to.

Nodes influencing relevant state variables for how event handling is done also override this method.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ search()

void SoWWWInline::search ( SoSearchAction action)

Action method for SoSearchAction.

Compares the search criteria from the action to see if this node is a match. Searching is done by matching up all criteria set up in the SoSearchAction – if any of the requested criteria is a miss, the search is not deemed successful for the node.

See also

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ pick()

void SoWWWInline::pick ( SoPickAction action)

Action method for SoPickAction.

Does common processing for SoPickAction action instances.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ getPrimitiveCount()

void SoWWWInline::getPrimitiveCount ( SoGetPrimitiveCountAction action)

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 calculate their primitive count also override this method to change the relevant state variables.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ audioRender()

void SoWWWInline::audioRender ( SoAudioRenderAction action)

Action method for SoAudioRenderAction.

Does common processing for SoAudioRenderAction action instances.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ addBoundingBoxChild()

void SoWWWInline::addBoundingBoxChild ( SbVec3f  center,
SbVec3f  size 

Convenience method that extends the current bounding box to include the box specified by center and size.

◆ readInstance()

SbBool SoWWWInline::readInstance ( SoInput in,
unsigned short  flags 

This method is mainly intended for internal use during file import operations.

It reads a definition of an instance from the input stream in. The input stream state points to the start of a serialized / persistent representation of an instance of this class type.

TRUE or FALSE is returned, depending on if the instantiation and configuration of the new object of this class type went OK or not. The import process should be robust and handle corrupted input streams by returning FALSE.

flags is used internally during binary import when reading user extension nodes, group nodes or engines.

Reimplemented from SoNode.

◆ copyContents()

void SoWWWInline::copyContents ( const SoFieldContainer from,
SbBool  copyconnections 

Makes a deep copy of all data of from into this instance, except external scene graph references if copyconnections is FALSE.

This is the method that should be overridden by extension node / engine / dragger / whatever subclasses which need to account for internal data that are not handled automatically.

For copying nodes from application code, you should not invoke this function directly, but rather call the SoNode::copy() function:

SoNode * mynewnode = templatenode->copy();

The same also goes for engines.

Make sure that when you override the copyContents() method in your extension class that you also make it call upwards to its parent superclass in the inheritance hierarchy, as copyContents() in for instance SoNode and SoFieldContainer does important work. It should go something like this:

MyCoinExtensionNode::copyContents(const SoFieldContainer * from,
SbBool copyconnections)
// let parent superclasses do their thing (copy fields, copy
// instance name, etc.)
SoNode::copyContents(from, copyconnections);
// [..then copy internal data..]

Reimplemented from SoNode.
