Detailed Description

Field containing a a node.

This field maintains a an SoNode instance, correctly maintaining its reference count.

SoSFNodes are written to file as the node they are containing. For example:

     mySoSFNodeField Cube {}
    

is an SoSFNode field named 'mySoSFNodeField', referring to an SoCube node. If the node is used elsewhere, the regular DEF/USE instancing mechanism applies:

     anotherSoSFNodeField USE topSeparator
    

is an SoSFNode field that refers to a node named 'topSeparator' that was DEF'ed earlier in the scene.

SoSFNode::SoSFNode (  ) 

Default constructor.

virtual SoSFNode::~SoSFNode (  )  [virtual]

Destructor.


Member Function Documentation

static SoType SoSFNode::getClassTypeId (  )  [static]

Returns the type identifier for this class.

Reimplemented from SoSField.

virtual SoType SoSFNode::getTypeId (  )  const [virtual]

Returns the type identifier for this specific instance.

Implements SoTypedObject.

SoNode* SoSFNode::getValue ( SbBool  getEffectiveNode = FALSE  ) 

Gets the value of this field.

The getEffectiveNode parameter is only used when the node in the field is a Proto. In this case, if the parameter is true then for convenience it returns the first child of the proto (the node the proto is pretending to be).

SoNode* SoSFNode::getValue (  )  const [inline]

Returns this field's value.

virtual size_t SoSFNode::getValueSize (  )  const [inline, virtual]

Get size of the value.

Reimplemented from SoField.

int SoSFNode::operator!= ( const SoSFNode f  )  const [inline]

Returns FALSE if otherField is of the same type and has the same value as this field.

Reimplemented from SoField.

SoNode* SoSFNode::operator= ( SoNode newValue  )  [inline]

Sets this field to newValue.

const SoSFNode& SoSFNode::operator= ( const SoSFNode f  ) 

Copy from another field of same type.

int SoSFNode::operator== ( const SoSFNode f  )  const

Returns TRUE if otherField is of the same type and has the same value as this field.

Reimplemented from SoField.

void SoSFNode::setValue ( SoNode newValue  ) 

Sets this field to newValue.
