Class RenderAreaListener


  • public class RenderAreaListener
    extends Inventor
    This class can be overridden by an application to receive notifications from a RenderArea. There are several categories of notifications:
    • Connection: To know when a connection has been created, initialized and disposed.
    • Render: To know the start/end of rendering and when an image is sent to the client.
    • Input events: To handle MouseDown, MouseUp, etc. events triggered by the user.
    • Messages: To handle messages sent from the client.

    For notifications related to the lifetime of the RenderArea itself, see the ServiceListener class.

    Typically the application will attach a listener to the RenderArea in the onInstantiatedRenderArea() method of its ServiceListener. But applications can also create a RenderArea explicitly and attach a listener.

    A typical sequence of calls to this listener is:

                                        SbRasterImage rasterImage)
        Triggered when a new frame is requested by a connection. This method only works when the ServiceSettings.INDEPENDENT_SERVICE mode is enabled.

        To send a new frame to the client, set the pixel buffer of the raster image using a buffer object. If the buffer object of the raster image is NULL, no frame will be sent to the client. IMPORTANT: This callback is executed in a separate thread for each connection requesting a frame.

        Parameters:
        renderArea - : the RenderArea of the Connection

        sender - : the connection that requests a new frame

        rasterImage - : contains the RGB raster image to render.

        isInteractive - : This value can be modified to indicate if an user interaction is in progress. Default value is true.
        If true (interactive frame), the frame will be compressed with the interactive frame encoder and a quality adapted to the bandwidth setting.
        If false (still frame), the frame will be compressed with the still frame encoder and the best available quality.

        Triggered when a client connects to the RenderArea. Use this method to set the encoding format for images sent to the client, using the frameEncoders parameter. The default is JPEG for interactive frames (i.e. while the user is interacting) and PNG for still frames. Video encoding (H264 or VP9) may provide better performance by reducing bandwidth requirements. Use the ConnectionSettings.isSupportedEncoders() method to query if the proposed encoders are available. If a requested frame encoder cannot be initialized, RenderAreaListener.onRefusedEncoder will be triggered. Otherwise, RenderAreaListener.onInitializedConnection will be triggered.

        renderArea - : the RenderArea requested by the connection

        connection - : the Connection

        frameEncoders - : frame encoders for interactive and still frames
