This node specifies the color to use for subsequent shapes as an index into the current color table. This is used only for BASE_COLOR lighting (see SoLightModel) in color index mode. Color index mode may be enabled by the window in which rendering occurs.

Since color indices make sense only in the context of OpenGL rendering, this node implements only a method for the SoGLRenderAction.


SoMFInt32 index
Color index.


Creates a color index node with default settings.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.

Action Behavior

Sets the color index for subsequent shapes rendered with BASE_COLOR lighting.

File Format/Defaults

ColorIndex {
index	1
