Notification at this Field Container is enabled (if flag == true) or disabled (if flag == false).

(Inherited from SoFieldContainer.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFieldsAreEqual

Returns true if this object's fields are exactly equal to fc's fields.

(Inherited from SoFieldContainer.)

(Inherited from SoFieldContainer.)
Public methodGetAllFields

Returns a list of fields, including the eventIn's and eventOut's.

(Inherited from SoFieldContainer.)
Public methodGetAlternateRep

This method is called by actions to allow the node to provide an "alternate representation" when appropriate (typically depending on the action type).

Remarks

This node is the abstract base class for all profile nodes, which define 2D curves. A profile is not itself geometry, but is used to change or delimit the geometry of something else. For an OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoText3 node, the profile determines the cross-section of the side of each text character. For an OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoNurbsSurface node, the profile is used to specify trim curves for the surface.

The current profile state can consist of one or more profiles, each of which can be made up of one or more instances of OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoProfile subclass nodes. Each profile node specifies (in the OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoProfile.index field) a set of indices that refer to the current set of profile coordinates, specified using either an OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoProfileCoordinate2 or an OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoProfileCoordinate3 node. No profile curve should intersect itself or another profile curve.

Profiles are part of the state, just like all other properties. The state contains a current list of profiles. Depending on the OIV.Inventor.Nodes.SoProfile.linkage field, a profile can clear the list and begin a new profile, begin a new profile at the end of those already in the list, or append to the last profile in the current list. Note that when appending profile B to the end of profile A, B must begin at the same 2D point at which A ends.

FILE FORMAT/DEFAULT

This is an abstract class. See the reference page of a derived class for the format and default values.
