This node determines how subsequent geometry nodes in the scene graph are to be picked, as indicated by the style field.

Note that this is the only way to change the pick behavior of shapes; drawing style, complexity, and other rendering-related properties have no effect on picking.


SoSFEnum style
Picking style.


Creates a pick style node with default settings.

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

Action Behavior

SoRayPickAction, SoCallbackAction
Sets the current pick style in the state.

File Format/Defaults

PickStyle {
style	SHAPE
