Detailed Description

The SoEngineOutput class is the output slots in SoEngine instances.

SoEngineOutput has methods for convenient handling of the connections made from SoEngine objects to SoField objects.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

SoEngineOutput::SoEngineOutput (void)

Constructor. The SoEngineOutput will initially not be contained within an SoEngine nor will it have any slave fields attached.

See also:

setContainer()

SoEngineOutput::~SoEngineOutput (void) [virtual]

Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

SoType SoEngineOutput::getConnectionType (void) const

Returns the type of the engine output.

int SoEngineOutput::getForwardConnections (SoFieldList & fl) const

Adds all slave fields connected to this output to fl. Returns the number of slaves.

See also:

addConnection()

removeConnection()

void SoEngineOutput::enable (const SbBool flag)

Sets the enabled flag. If output is disabled, the fields connected to this output will not be changed when the engine is evaluated.

See also:

isEnabled().

SbBool SoEngineOutput::isEnabled (void) const

Returns status of the enabled flag.

See also:

enable().

SoEngine * SoEngineOutput::getContainer (void) const

Returns the engine containing this output. If the engine containing this output is a NodeEngine, this method returns NULL.

See also:

setContainer(), getNodeContainer()

SoNodeEngine * SoEngineOutput::getNodeContainer (void) const

Returns the node engine containing this output. If the engine containing this output is not a NodeEgine, this method returns NULL.

This function is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

See also:

setNodeContainer(), getContainer()

Since:

Coin 2.0

SbBool SoEngineOutput::isNodeEngineOutput (void) const

Returns TRUE if the container is a NodeEngine.

This function is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

See also:

getNodeContainer(), getContainer()

Since:

Coin 2.0

void SoEngineOutput::setContainer (SoEngine * engine)

Sets the engine containing this output.

See also:

getContainer()

void SoEngineOutput::setNodeContainer (SoNodeEngine * nodeengine)

Sets the NodeEngine containing this output.

This function is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

See also:

getNodeContainer()

Since:

Coin 2.0

void SoEngineOutput::addConnection (SoField * f)

Adds f to the list of connections from this output.

Adds 1 to the reference count of the container engine.

See also:

removeConnection(), getForwardConnections()

void SoEngineOutput::removeConnection (SoField * f)

Removes f from the list of connections from this output.

Subtracts 1 from the reference count of the container engine. If the reference count reaches zero (which will happen if this was the last connection and the application programmer did not explicitly ref the engine), the container engine will be deallocated.

See also:

addConnection(), getForwardConnections()

int SoEngineOutput::getNumConnections (void) const

Returns the number of fields in the list of connections.

See also:

operator[], addConnection()

SoEngineOutput * SoEngineOutput::operator[] (int i) const

Returns the field at index i in the list of connections.

Please note that this might not be the same field as the one the output was originally connected to, since a field converted might have been inserted to converted the output to match the field type.

See also:

getNumConnections()

Returns element at idx.

Will automatically expand the size of the internal array if idx is outside the current bounds of the list. The values of any additional pointers are then set to NULL.

void SoEngineOutput::prepareToWrite (void) const

Disables notifications on fields connected to this output. This is done before the engine is evaulated, since the fields we are going to write into have already been notified.

See also:

doneWriting()

void SoEngineOutput::doneWriting (void) const

Restores the notification flags on fields connected to this output after evaluating.

See also:

prepareToWrite()

void SoEngineOutput::touchSlaves (SoNotList * nl, SbBool donotify)

Notify the fields attached to this engine output that the output value has changed.

If donotify is TRUE, propagate the notification to the fields. Otherwise just mark the fields 'dirty' for re-evalution.

Note that this method is not part of the original Open Inventor API.

SoFieldContainer * SoEngineOutput::getFieldContainer (void)

Convenience method that returns a field container. This method can be used both for NodeEngine and Engine outputs.

This function is an extension for Coin, and it is not available in the original SGI Open Inventor v2.1 API.

Since:

Coin 2.0
