Description

A field containing an ASCII string (sequence of characters). Inventor does not support non-ASCII strings.

SoSFStrings are written to file as a sequence of ASCII characters in double quotes (optional if the string doesn't contain any whitespace). Any characters (including newlines) may appear within the quotes. To include a double quote character within the string, precede it with a backslash. For example:

Testing
"One, Two, Three"
"He said, \"Immel did it!\""

are all valid strings.

Methods

setValue(const char *string)
Convenience method to set the field's value given a character array.

static SoType getClassTypeId()

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

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

const SbString & operator =(const SbString & newValue)

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

int operator ==(const SoSFString &f) const

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