Detailed Description

The SoOverrideElement maintains a list of overridable elements and a list over which elements should be overridden.

Only certain elements can be overridden.

The remaining class documentation describes a single, special case:

A common request for functionality is to override only the transparency of the full scene graph, or parts of the scene graph.

In the original SGI Inventor, this is nigh impossible, as the API was designed to only make it possible to override all or none of the fields of a node. So calling SoNode::setOverride() on an SoMaterial node will cause all material settings of that node to override all material settings further on in the scene graph, and there is no way to override only the transparency settings.

In Coin, we have added in a little hack to overcome this problem, since it is such a common request for functionality: to have separate transparency override settings, set the environment variable COIN_SEPARATE_DIFFUSE_TRANSPARENCY_OVERRIDE to '1' to enable this hack.

(Do however note that this will not work when the SoPackedColor or SoVertexProperty node is used to specify diffuse color and transparency -- only with the SoMaterial node.)

Here is a complete, stand-alone example which demonstrates how to accomplish this:

#include <Inventor/Qt/SoQt.h>
#include <Inventor/Qt/viewers/SoQtExaminerViewer.h>
#include <Inventor/nodes/SoSeparator.h>
#include <Inventor/nodes/SoMaterial.h>

// *************************************************************************

const char * scene = "#Inventor V2.1 asci0
"0
"Separator {"
"   Cone { }"
"   Translation { translation 1 0 5 }"
""
"   DEF OVERRIDEMATERIAL Material { transparency 0.5 }"
""
"   DEF OBJMATERIAL Material {"
"      diffuseColor 0.5 0 0"
"      transparency 0"
"   }"
"   Sphere { }"
"}"
;

int
main(int argc, char ** argv)
{
  QWidget * window = SoQt::init(argv[0]);

  (void)coin_setenv("COIN_SEPARATE_DIFFUSE_TRANSPARENCY_OVERRIDE", "1", TRUE);

  SoInput * in = new SoInput;
  in->setBuffer((void *)scene, strlen(scene));
  SoSeparator * root = SoDB::readAll(in);
  assert(root);
  delete in;

  root->ref();

  SoMaterial * overridemat = (SoMaterial *)
    SoBase::getNamedBase("OVERRIDEMATERIAL", SoMaterial::getClassTypeId());
  assert(overridemat);

  overridemat->diffuseColor.setIgnored(TRUE);
  overridemat->setOverride(TRUE);

  SoQtExaminerViewer * viewer = new SoQtExaminerViewer(window);
  viewer->setSceneGraph(root);
  viewer->show();

  SoQt::show(window);
  SoQt::mainLoop();

  delete viewer;
  root->unref();

  return 0;
}

void SoOverrideElement::setDiffuseColorOverride (SoState *const state, SoNode *const node, const SbBool override) [static]

Can be used to set diffuse color override. This will also set the transparency override. Since we feel this is a design flaw, it is possible to override this behaviour by setting an environement value called COIN_SEPARATE_DIFFUSE_TRANSPARENCY_OVERRIDE to 1.

Please note that separate override will not work for the PackedColor or SoVertexProperty nodes.
