This class defines a label node in the scene graph. This node has no effect during traversal. It is used to store text labels in the scene graph, typically for application-specific identification of subgraphs when node naming is not appropriate.


SoSFName label
Defines the label string value as an SbName.


Creates a label node with default settings.

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

File Format/Defaults

Label {
label	"<Undefined label>"
