Detailed Description

The SoLightKit class provides a kit with a transform, a light and a shape or subgraph.

Node kit structure (new entries versus parent class marked with arrow prefix):

CLASS SoLightKit
-->   'transformGroup'
-->      'transform'
-->      'light'
-->      'iconSeparator'
-->         'icon'

(See SoBaseKit::printDiagram() for information about the output formatting.)

Detailed information on catalog parts:

CLASS SoLightKit
PVT   'this',  SoLightKit  --- 
      'callbackList',  SoNodeKitListPart [ SoCallback, SoEventCallback ] 
PVT   'transformGroup',  SoTransformSeparator  --- 
      'transform',  SoTransform  --- 
      'light',  SoLight  --- , (default type = SoDirectionalLight)
PVT   'iconSeparator',  SoSeparator  --- 
      'icon',  SoNode  --- , (default type = SoCube)

(See SoBaseKit::printTable() for information about the output formatting.)

Member Function Documentation

SoType SoLightKit::getTypeId (void) const [virtual]

Returns the type identification of an object derived from a class inheriting SoBase. This is used for run-time type checking and 'downward' casting.

Usage example:

void foo(SoNode * node)
  if (node->getTypeId() == SoFile::getClassTypeId()) {
    SoFile * filenode = (SoFile *)node;  // safe downward cast, knows the type

For application programmers wanting to extend the library with new nodes, engines, nodekits, draggers or others: this method needs to be overridden in all subclasses. This is typically done as part of setting up the full type system for extension classes, which is usually accomplished by using the pre-defined macros available through for instance Inventor/nodes/SoSubNode.h (SO_NODE_INIT_CLASS and SO_NODE_CONSTRUCTOR for node classes), Inventor/engines/SoSubEngine.h (for engine classes) and so on.

For more information on writing Coin extensions, see the class documentation of the toplevel superclasses for the various class groups.

Reimplemented from SoBaseKit.

const SoFieldData * SoLightKit::getFieldData (void) const [protected], [virtual]

Returns a pointer to the class-wide field data storage object for this instance. If no fields are present, returns NULL.

Reimplemented from SoBaseKit.

const SoNodekitCatalog * SoLightKit::getNodekitCatalog (void) const [virtual]

Returns the nodekit catalog which defines the layout of this class' kit.
