Class SoMFName

  • public class SoMFName
    extends SoMField
    Multiple-value field containing any number of names. A multiple-valued field containing any number of names. Names are short series of characters generally used for labels or names, and are stored in a special table designed to allow fast lookup and comparison. For most purposes, an SoMFString field is probably more appropriate.

    SoMFNames are written to file as one or more strings of characters. Names must begin with an underscore or alphabetic character, and must consist entirely of underscores, alphabetic characters, or numbers. When more than one value is present, all of the values are enclosed in square brackets and separated by commas; for example:

       [ Fred, Wilma, _Part_01, translationField ]

    Data copying:

    SoMF fields are a kind of "smart container", automatically expanding as necessary to hold the data provided by the application. This is very convenient, but for large blocks of data it may be desireable to avoid making a copy of the application data. The setValuesBuffer() methods allow Open Inventor to directly use an array of values supplied by the application. The application data is not copied. Please see SoMFVec3f for more information and example code.

      • find

        public int find​(java.lang.String targetValue)
        Calls find(targetValue, false).
      • getValueAt

        public java.lang.String getValueAt​(int i)
      • equals

        public boolean equals​(java.lang.Object obj)
        equals in class SoField
      • disableDeleteValues

        public void disableDeleteValues()
        Temporary disable value deleting.
      • setValue

        public void setValue​(java.lang.String newValue)
        Sets the first value in the array to newValue, and deletes. the second and subsequent values. If field's values are stored in an user data array, this array is no more used.
      • find

        public int find​(java.lang.String targetValue,
                        boolean addIfNotFound)
        Finds the given targetValue in the array and returns the index of that value. in the array. If the value is not found, -1 is returned. If addIfNotFound is set, then targetValue is added to the end of the array (but -1 is still returned).
      • set1Value

        public void set1Value​(int index,
                              java.lang.String newValue)
