This node defines the current drawing style for all subsequent shape nodes in a scene graph. SoDrawStyle specifies how primitives should be rendered. The drawing style has no effect on picking or callback primitive generation.


SoSFEnum style
Drawing style.

SoSFFloat pointSize
Radius of points (for POINTS style).

SoSFFloat lineWidth
Width of lines (for LINES style).

SoSFUShort linePattern
Stipple pattern for lines (for LINES style). Values can range from 0 (invisible) to 0xffff (solid). This specifies how dashed or dotted lines will be drawn.


Creates a drawing style node with default settings.

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

Action Behavior

SoGLRenderAction, SoCallbackAction
Sets the current drawing style.

File Format/Defaults

DrawStyle {
style	FILLED
pointSize	0
lineWidth	0
linePattern	0xffff
