public abstract class SoElement : SoNetBase

The SoElement type exposes the following members.

Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberGetClassStackIndexE
Returns the stack id for the element type.
Public methodGetHashCode
Overrides GetHashCode().
(Inherited from SoNetBase.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodPop

Pops element.

Public methodPush

Pushes element.

Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)

This is the abstract base class for all state elements. This class defines the following features for all of its derived classes:

<B> Type identifiers: </B> Each class of element has a unique (static)
SoType identifier. The correct type id is also stored in each
instance for easy access.

<B> Copying: </B> Elements are copied into the list of elements used
in an SoCache. Performing any operation other than matches()
on a copied element is not guaranteed to work (and will not
work for things like Coordinates, if the coordinate they were
pointing to has been deleted).

<B> Stack indices: </B> Since a subclass of an element class needs to
be in the same state stack as the class from which it is
derived, stack indices are inherited.

<B> Capturing: </B> Each time an element's value is accessed, that
element is added to the elements-used list of all currently
open caches.
