Description

A field containing a name. Names are short series of characters generally used for labels or names, and are stored in a special table designed to allow fast lookup and comparison. For most purposes, an SoSFString field is probably more appropriate.

SoSFNames are written to file as a string of characters. Names must begin with an underscore or alphabetic character, and must consist entirely of underscores, alphabetic characters, or numbers.

Methods

void setValue(const char *string)
Set this field to the name equivalent to the given string.

static SoType getClassTypeId()

virtual void getTypeId() const
Returns the type for this class or a particular object of this class.

const SbName & getValue() const
Returns this field's value.

const SbName & operator =(const SbName & newValue)

void setValue(const SbName & newValue)
Sets this field to newValue.

int operator ==(const SoSFName &f) const

int operator !=(const SoSFName &f) const
Returns TRUE if f is of the same type and has the same value as this field.
