Class PoMiscTextAttr

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class PoMiscTextAttr
    extends PoNode
    Node to define miscellaneous text attributes (font name, line length,...). This node defines the current miscellaneous text attributes for all subsequent MeshViz representations which contain text. These attributes are the font name, the line length, the end line character.

    File format/default:

    PoMiscTextAttr {

      fontName "defaultFont"
      lineLength LINE_LENGTH_MAX
      endLineChar ' '
      profileEnabled false
      predefinedProfileEnabled true
      outliningEnabled true
    • Field Detail

      • fontName

        public final SoSFString fontName
        Font name for text.
      • lineLength

        public final SoSFShort lineLength
        Defines the max number of characters per line. If several endLineChar appear before the lineLength character, only the last endLineChar is taken into account. if lineLength = LINE_LENGTH_MAX, the lines length is not limited, and if lineLength = LINE_LENGTH_MIN, the lines are limited to one word.

        Example of use with the string "United States of America" (24 characters) :

        • with endLineChar = ' ' and lineLength = 15, the string is cut into two lines: "United States" and "of America".
        • with endLineChar = ' ' and lineLength = 18, the string is cut into two lines: "United States of" and "America".

        Be careful, words (consecutive characters delimited by endLineChar characters) are never truncated, so lines could exceed lineLength characters if the first word of the line contains more than lineLength characters.

      • endLineChar

        public final SoSFShort endLineChar
        Defines the end line character.
      • profileEnabled

        public final SoSFBool profileEnabled
        Enables/Disables the appearance of a profile for 3D Text. Only SoText3 text takes into account of this option (cf PoBase.setTextType()) to to select the type of text used).
      • predefinedProfileEnabled

        public final SoSFBool predefinedProfileEnabled
        Enables/Disables the use of a predefined profile for 3D text if they are activated (cf profileEnabled field). If this field is set to false, the current profile in the state is used (cf SoLinearProfile,...)
      • outliningEnabled

        public final SoSFBool outliningEnabled
        Enables/Disables drawing of the outline of polygonal text (SoText3 and SoAnnoText3). For filled text that is small relative to the viewer size, drawing the outline improves the appearance of the text. For larger text, the outline can be deactivated to improve performance and prevent the text having a bold appearance.
