Detailed Description

VSG extension Component which lets you edit a material interactively.

This class is used to edit the material properties of an SoMaterial node. The editor can also directly be used using callbacks instead of attaching it to a node. The component consists of a render area displaying a test sphere, some sliders, a set of radio buttons, and a menu. The sphere displays the current material being edited. There is one slider for each material coefficient. Those fields are ambient, diffuse, specular, emissive (all of which are colors); and transparency and shininess (which are scalar values). A color editor can be opened to edit the color slider base color. A material list displays palettes of predefined materials from which to choose.

The editor can currently be attached to only one material at a time. Attaching two different materials will automatically detach the first one before attaching the second.

Member Enumeration Documentation

Update frequency.

UpdateFrequency is how often new values should be sent to the node or the callback routine.


Send updates with every mouse motion.


Only send updates after user hits accept button.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SoQtMaterialEditor::SoQtMaterialEditor ( QWidget *  parent = qApp->activeWindow(),
const char *  name = NULL,
SbBool  buildInsideParent = TRUE 


SoQtMaterialEditor::~SoQtMaterialEditor (  ) 


Member Function Documentation

void SoQtMaterialEditor::addMaterialChangedCallback ( SoQtMaterialEditorCB f,
void *  userData = NULL 
) [inline]

Additional way of using the material editor, by registering a callback which will be called whenever the material changes (check the UpdateFrequency to find when the callbacks will be called).

void SoQtMaterialEditor::attach ( SoMaterial material,
int  index = 0 

Attaches the editor to a material node and edits the material of the given index.

void SoQtMaterialEditor::detach (  ) 

Detaches the editor from the material node.

const SoMaterial& SoQtMaterialEditor::getMaterial (  )  const [inline]

Gets the current material value.

SoQtMaterialEditor::UpdateFrequency SoQtMaterialEditor::getUpdateFrequency (  )  [inline]

Gets the update frequency.

See the UpdateFrequency enum declaration.

virtual void SoQtMaterialEditor::hide (  )  [virtual]

This hides the component.

Reimplemented from SoQtComponent.

SbBool SoQtMaterialEditor::isAttached (  )  [inline]

Returns TRUE if the editor is attached.

void SoQtMaterialEditor::removeMaterialChangedCallback ( SoQtMaterialEditorCB f,
void *  userData = NULL 
) [inline]

Removes the material changed callback.

void SoQtMaterialEditor::setMaterial ( const SoMaterial mtl  ) 

Sets a new material value.

void SoQtMaterialEditor::setUpdateFrequency ( SoQtMaterialEditor::UpdateFrequency  freq  ) 

Sets the update frequency.

See the UpdateFrequency enum declaration.

virtual void SoQtMaterialEditor::show (  )  [virtual]

This shows the component.

Reimplemented from SoQtComponent.
